Fishermen from Inle lake by Than Sint

March 2019 - Fishermen from Inle lake

About the Image(s)

Inle lake is in Southern Shann State, Myanmar. I took this photo around the sunset on 19th December 2018. Being source of light is only the lantern of fishermen, resolution is not good enough. I touched up the photo with Lr and CC.

As usual, I used Canon 5D Mark IV, f/4, 1/40s, iso 640, 24-105@105mm.

Your three fishermen easily capture the eye of the observer in a dramatic setting. It took patience to wait for them to arrange themselves in such a wonderful pose. I've taken the liberty of cropping your photo as a suggestion as to how to attract the viewer's eye even more. The sunset draws the eye from the center, as does too much water around the fishermen. My camera club stresses cropping out parts of the picture that distract the viewer. You have an artistic picture inside your original.   Posted: 03/01/2019 15:28:38

What a great subject. I agree with Alan that this image should be cropped a bit more to eliminate the sky. I'd also color dodge with orange the water in front of the boats.   Posted: 03/10/2019 17:05:50

Interesting silhouettes the makes me want to get closer. Cropping does help in this regard.The little sprig of vegetation on the left could go. This is a fine image though and a difficult scene to capture.Alan is right about the does distract.   Posted: 03/13/2019 16:09:41

The symmetry of the fisherman is the best. I like the whole image with the sunset and mountains which I find adds to the place of the photo. I cropped the photo just to keep the silhouette of the fisherman in the picture.   Posted: 03/17/2019 15:01:02

We all seem to agree that some cropping makes the fishermen stand out more. Personally, I like the sunset, so David Robb's suggestion appeals to me.   Posted: 03/17/2019 17:40:12

Great moment captured. I vote for David's cropping. I like the sunset as a part of the story, but he took out some stuff around the edges that was distracting.   Posted: 03/22/2019 18:53:09

Visiting from 48 & 80. This is a beautiful image. Reminds me of our trip to the Orient and our Yangtze River cruise.   Posted: 03/25/2019 17:56:59

I like the other comments. This is a great scene. I wondered what it might have been like if you had waited until the blue hour came along so the main light would have been just the lanterns. Sorry that I played around so much with this.   Posted: 03/25/2019 20:44:18
