Collection: China
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II
Location: Yangtze, China
Date: Oct 11, 2008

this is one of many photos I took while on a 2-week trip to China

This photo is taken just above the Three Gorges Dam (you can see an edge of it in the background as a straight horizontal line above the water), apparently fish is trapped there, and that attracts many small fishing boats like this one.

Got an 8 from me and I came back to appreciate. I took a long boat trip from Wuhan up the Changjiang to Chongqing in the early 80s. Before modernization. Have you ever read A Single Pebble by John Hersey?

Fantastic. I love the misty water and background with the deep shadow of the silhouette. Gorgeous. Great composition.

the complexity of the background, the layers of land that seem to reach the sky, the outstanding focus of the silhouetted fishermen - very good work

I love the way you've composed this so that the fisherman is dwarfed by his surroundings - lovely :)
