The Old Boatman by Peug The Old Boatman by Peug
Traditional boat from a little town next to mine:D

Every year the fields by the lake get all flooded and the only way to get to some of them is by boat:D

Full view please...

Update:

Changed the edit to become more sharp. i think it's better now.

I love the feeling of nostalgia I get from this photo. I wonder where the boatman is going and where he came from.

This is quite original compared to other photos of boatmen. It's not in color and makes excellent use of the square format. The centrality of the composition also adds to the originality.

The technique here is great. I love the somewhat soft contrast. If it was stronger, it would overpower the mood and the subject of the photo. Nice use of leading lines to draw in the viewer. Even though I like this composition, I think more experimentation would have given you an even better composition. I also think the boatman could have been a little sharper, although this could be the result of the small resolution.

Well done!
What do you think?
