Zara,

This is a wonderfully composed and silhouetted image that really captured the essence of traveling.  I admire the angle you had and the ability to capure everything as you did...very well done.  This would be a must for hanging on a wall.   It was also quite funny in that just a day or two before you posted this, I set up a trip for myself to do 10 days in Myanmar including this area.  So, this really excited me!  Any hints you have would be greatly appreciated.  I will be going alone (unless someone wants to join!) with a trusted guide who specializes in photography.  Thanks for posting this...really special.

 Richard - thanks for your lovely words - made more special because I have admired your own work in Asia. You will love your time in Myanmar I am sure. The people are a real highlight as well (I noticed in your writing this is also important for you). My website has some detailed pictures and stories ZeeGlobe - Inle Lake. I will also send you a note directly for some advice not in the story that you may find useful.

an awesome image, you have caught the subject and the activity brilliantly, and the time of day makes this even better... as you say, this type of fishing is slowly becoming outdated so your shot becomes even more amazing...  

This is fantastic, Zara. I am glad to see you posting images again here - this one in particular really raises the level of discourse. Thanks for sharing!

fabulous, brilliant !! Captured the photo at the right moment and right time of the day !! So sad to hear that the original culture is getting archaic now .. keep up the good photography Smile

ZARA all has been said.

This is the essence of travel photography

 This photo wants me want to be there in that enchanted land, where spirits seem to rise from the water.

Thanks very much everyone. Such kind words
