Photographer's Note

This is the first of my Vietnam trip's picture. This was taken at the Halong Bay, one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen.

I woke up early that morning. At 6:00 am, I was ready to set forth with my camera. Breakfast will be at 7:00 so I hurried outside to kill the time. It was cold because it just rained the night before. I walked to the direction of the shore. I spotted three small fishing boats with some fisherman going about their morning routine. I walked very near them. The bay was misty but it looks magical. I looked for a good angle to include these two boats for this shot. I shot more and more. On this pre-breakfast session alone, I took almost 50 shots. This is the one of my favorites. I hope that you will like it too.

I use the cooling filter of PS. I did my usual auto-adjustments, USM and use curves to bring out some details in he boat. I don't really like the plastic chair in the boat but this is what reality is.
