    U can't link pbase photos directly, unless U subscribed to their paid service...

    U can only put the link to the website with your photo.

    the shot's aesthetic level rate high on myside but the composition can be better. Maybe you can crop a little more of the water to make it somehow 1/3 of the picture.. it will change the shot's aesthetic level much higher.

    the sepia adds a nice touch of nostalgia but maybe you can try toning the shot to have more contrast for that extra umph!

    Overall, I like this shot.. simple, quiet and cultural.

    DO post more if you have!

    1/3 rule? didn't know it was a rule... shows how much i know. i think i saw it in b/w before - not a big sepia fan so i'd leave it in b/w. else nice shot.
    btw when we going shooting again - this time not at night k i hate tripod carrying. :P

    Actually the picture may not be enhanced if it were framed to 1/3. The fisherman is facing the right side while the boat is facing the left, a 1/3 frame might provide some viewing distance for the fisherman, but it will compromise viewing distance for the boat.
    I would prefer a wider angle to contrast the vastness of the sea and the fisherman.

    a good picture, imho...but juz like wat others have commented, the 1/3 rule would make it even stand out.

    nice but would be better if you follow the rule of thirds for composition... divide the frame into thirds in the x and y axis... and place the subject (the boat) on one of the intersections of the thirds...

    Of course I went to Burma - where did you think I shot this pics?

    And yes, please have a look at the other Burmese fisherman pic I posted. Think that one was better framed.

    Cheers
