About the Image(s)

Fishing net photo taken at Dongiang Lake near Chenzhou China. Once net photos became popular in contest some industrious Chinese boat men set up a net show offering it a couple times a day. For a small amount of money (usually 100 renminbi about $14) they would give individuals special treatment. This image was taken with Conon EOS 5DS R, at f/2.8, 1/320 sec, ISO 400, & 35 mm.

Carroll didn't get the email about nature subjects this month. He must of been in China. this is a beautiful image and Carroll identified that it is a setup for photography. Great for most things, but not allowed in the Photo Travel Division, PTD, for competition. The problem of course is that judges must guess if it is a setup or not. Enjoy the beautiful well done image. It is likely to win awards in PID or PPD, but probably will not be accepted in PTD.   Posted: 09/09/2020 05:08:56

A lovely image especially the water reflections and the lake is a beautiful saturated color which you captured.   Posted: 09/12/2020 11:04:24

It might have been set up, but you still have to compose the picture and hit the button at the right moment, both of which have been well executed. I like reflections and the reflections. Even though the full background helps to set the scene I thing a crop from the top to just above the waters edge would improve it a bit.   Posted: 09/14/2020 08:22:46

Thank for the comments. Somehow I missed the Nature subject this month but I put one in for the next round. (Golly, only a month late :>).   Posted: 09/17/2020 06:39:11

Beautiful image. You captured the serenity of the place, and an ancient manner of fishing in that part of the world. You placed yourself in the right place and focused on the fisherman and clicked just in time to capture the net and the reflection on the water. Great picture.   Posted: 09/17/2020 23:23:40

Carroll - Everything works here. The contrast of colors between the fisher's shirt and their boat's shade and the green of the water. The contrast between the light of the net and the dark of the water. The reflection of net in the water and the ripples from the boat that add texture. I can't suggest one thing that would make this better.   Posted: 09/23/2020 09:12:01
