[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The reflection of the mangrooves down the waters made me think to photograph it, but I need an element that will accentuate with the arch forming black reflection on the water. Here John was hunting or scavenging for oysters since it was low tide it abounds of empty shells and few oysters.

Since it was already dusk I have used a slow shutter speed of 1/30 secs plus the aperture of f/4.0, then it was aided by a direct flash to illuminate John. I was pleased by the result and John's unaware reaction.

If a man has a talent and cannot use it, he has failed. If he has a talent and uses only half of it, he has partly failed. If he has a talent and learns somehow to use the whole of it, he has gloriously succeeded, and won a satisfaction and a triumph few men ever know. THOMAS WOLFE

I like how his back fits perfectly in the curve of the reflection of the trees. His expression is the typical one I get when shooting, "What are you doing taking my photo?" Well captured, his bright clothing really stands out against the darker background.

I like the comp and the way you captured it, very well done, it deserves better, thanx, M, (*_*)

sorry...out of points..
