Award Shortlist   


Following yesterday’s up-load taken at sunrise on the beach at Mui Ne, I continue with the people pulling the net out of the sea. Women are doing their share of physical hard work. They have been pulling on those cables for hours and soon they’ll see if it was worth it.

I spent nearly two hours watching these people and taking photos of the teams at each end of the cables before seeing what they caught.

Thank you for your comments on “First Light”.

Hoping you will enjoy those new photos. There are more to come!

Have a nice day,

It would appear that the lack of modern mechanisation has little effect on these lovely people Jean. I am sure they will win in the end.

jean, great use of perspective in V1, from the front-character to the dot-boat in the far distance; you chose and presented the image with a very good composition; and I enjoyed reading the informative description, alfred
