The Fisherman

A local fisherman casts his line off Fort Milford in Tobago. No fancy rods for these guys, they use simple spindles to hold their line, and bait is usually a crab caught on the rocks nearby. Don't know what they catch, but for some of them it's the only way to make a living.

Good picture. I love the way he is silhouetted against the reflection in the water, and the ligh shining on his wet skin. Well done.

Really a perfect composition. Great texture and fading tones.

I agree with the other comments. You created something really nice with the dark fading to white from corner to corner. Nice choice in framing the shot. You could have gone landscape with it, but this has a much nicer effect. well done.

I love the way you chose to frame the shot and how the photo fades to white.

I love the simplicity of this shot. The gradient from black at the bottom to white at the top is beautiful.

Nice colours, I like the way they fade out to the top of the frame, and the scene is beautyful too.
I guess that's the correct meaning of the phrase "to earn your food with your work".
