[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Women row small boats for tourists, up and down the local river. It is a pleasant ride, past old buildings, fishermen and fisherwomen, sales people, feilds, and other boats. The woman rowing me, Em, invited to her home for dinner several times. She used to fish at night with her husband, using lights to attract fish. This was my favorite city in Vietnam.

We have the view from a boat and I see, the picture itself is a little tilted to the right, but the boat, you're in, is tilted to the left, how did you do that ? ? Ha,ha, Gloria, just a joke !
I like this picture very much, a good light, the foreground with..... your tilted boat and the colours, especially from the houses on the quay also reflecting in the water. The boat we see is very nice artistic detailed, a nice one. Good shot, Gloria ! And then invited for dinner.......wonderful !

tres belle photo du bateau.
amitiés ...tanbinh.

It is a very colourful photo describing well the waterway and the boats used. And it is fine that we can see part of the boat you were sitting in. But I feel it is tilted and should have been rotated anticlockwise a couple of degrees.

An interesting shot with useful commentray note. Blue hue of sky dancing togather with greenish water waves is interesting.

Thanks for sharing a beautiful floating shot from daily life.
