A superb addition to this weeks theme. A advert for sure to give us the possibilities of Alaska. Well done on the PP work.

A lovely peaceful landscape of rural Alaska with an interesting note. I like the fact that it is b/w, it creates mood and tells the story of the image more. I also like the sharp foreground and blurred background. It is one of those scenes which you keep looking at and seeing another detail. A good addition to the theme.

I like the strong mood and charm you have caught in this daily life scene!
Good decision for going B/W tones to the picture and the contrast you have maintained against a well blurred BG is amazing. The young man doing fishing and inclusion of an aircraft do enhance the overall mood in the scene.
A wonderful contribution to Friday's theme!
Have a nice weekend.

Hello Carol, an interesting composition with just a part of the plane in view,and yet it is enough.We need to see the lake with the expanse of water,and if there just happens to be a boy fishing, then even better.
The OOF bg works well, if it had been sharp, it might have distracted our eyes from the fg details.
Also I like the b/w.
Tfs, regards Jean.

I like the juxaposition of the various elements: the float plane, the young boy fishing, and the almost dreamlike lake and BG shore with trees.
I like your B&W conversion from a film scan.
A very pastoral scene that makes a unique and original contribution to the Theme.
Very Nicely Done

An original approach to the theme. Combining fishing with aviation seems to be far fetched, but you succeeded perfectly.
I like the B&W conversion and the POV. Nice blurred BG, obtaining a 3D effect.

Hi Carol, the b&w really gives the feel of a time when things were simpler.Like the planter on the end of the pontoon.Fiona

Excellent contribution to the Friday theme. A nice daily life scene, well composed and presented. The simple white frame is perfect to show this W&B image. Excellent PP work. The blurred BG makes stand out the principal subjects (plane and fishman)very well.
Ciao and nice Sunday! Vanda

A friend lives about 30 miles north of Anchorage and she has been asking me to visit. They have a float plane and she promise to take to some remote areas of Alaska, I'm tempted. I like your combination of fishing pole and flying object better than mind. Good dof with nice contrast. Very well done, tfs.

I like the composition, the good moody of this B/W. It has charn, singularity and character...it is you and you special mind " visiting" this world. You see beauty and give beauty to us. Even the frame I like...it is has a limit of the scene...we can imagive how much beautiful details is out of the photoo and you gave us a beautiful glance.
It has so much you.
