A zoomed shot of a fisherman checking a small portion of his massive nets above water line from which the nets can be lowered and raised. Getting around on the coracle seemed routine but it also showed a great display of dexterity and the enormousness of his task ahead.
Perhaps, a way of life is in his blood which hasn't changed for many generations and it's so fascinating to see how this distinctive contraptions dominate such a large part of the calm waters of Lap An Lagoon, Lang Co Bay 30 km north of Danang. A peaceful sight where many locals depend on their nets to make a living
It's such a fantastic area for photography which offers one of the most scenic sights in Vietnam's central coast.
Workshop1: Wider view of the lagoon taken on overcast morning. There were several positions on the small bridge nearby to get shots of these nets but by staying around for a couple of hours I managed to get a variety of shots from diff angles

This is a sublime shot.
I just love its simplicity, its tranquil mood, its fine colour composition and the sense of movement created by the circular wave patterns.
Have a lovely day,

Lep pogled i trenutak, interesantan tekst ...
Dobar rad sa lepom fotografijom u radionici, lepo pokazano, dobar kontrast i ostrina, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak. Ribar radi svoj posao i vesto baca mrezu.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.
Beautiful view of the moment, interesting text ...

Your both pictures are very well made with the nets.
You choose a perfect angle nice in perspective.
Presentation and colours are superb.
Very well done, TFS.

Tu as réussi une très belle composition. Le mouvement de la dame est parfaitement saisit et on la voit encore bien derrière le filet que ne semble pas avoir de trou.

You have caught a very nice moment, the fisherman at work but it is something different than the fishing, very well observed and captured

Hi Abmdsudi, very good photo of this interesting scene of the fisherman's daily life, very well captured in this interesting image, with good clarity, light, color and quality. A great work perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thank you for sharing this interesting work.
Good day and happy weekend.
All the best from the south of Spain.

Bonsoir, cher Abmdsudi,
Si j'ai bien compris, c'est un cow-boy avec un lancer de lasso à l'envers !
Une excellente image. Ces pêcheurs bénéficient d'une expérience qui doit remonter très loin dans le temps.

Wonderful picture from Da Nang.A very original picture with very good composition and nice colours.

What a coincident, I was researching this part of the world on this site earlier this morning...
Fascinating two photos showing a slice of daily life turned into a picturesque sight. Lovely colours and showing the person through the net makes for a painterly effect.

I am back .......
A simple every day scene, yet it evokes such a grand sense of calm and tranquility. The gradual change from the warmer tones on the net to the cooler tones of the water is very pleasing. A rare insight to the ancient insight of the people of Da Nang.
have a great easter weekend

Really excellent timing. It earned it place among my favourites.
Energysavingelk (2918) 2017-04-15 10:38
This seems rural and simple. But for the fisherman its part of his hard daily work. Well choden perspective, and I'm grateful that you chose the vertical format which gives much more depth. Colours seem complementary to some extent.
A Happy Easter if you celebrate it, if not: have a nice weekend!

A great image with this fisherman, captured at the precise moment in which he throws his great fishing net, with an art and unequaled difficulty, is a different and very interesting photo.
Colorful, sharpness and brightness are captured excellently.
Very good composition, magnificent presentation.
Have a good weekend.

Really nice separation of colors/themes and perfect timing. Congrats. Alex.

I saw some of these circular fishing boats in Hoi An. The man lifting the netting adds a focal points and is skilled at standing up in the boat. Mine would tip over. Good sharpness and angled, downward pov. Tfs!
mcmtanyel (29668) 2017-04-19 21:44
It's an interesting photo, I hope she did not get tangled in the net.
everlasting (15498) 2017-04-19 22:51
The most striking feature here is the gradual change of tones from top to bottom. The warmer tones of the fishing-net and stirred up waters to the cooler tones of the water is very attractive.

splendida foto, ben fatta, un taglio verticale perfettamente suddiviso in due parti uguali con differenti tonalità e al centro un soggetto semi nascosto che crea mistero e curiosità.
