hello Foozi

beautiful photo of the canal and the environment surrounding,
very fine POV to show the canal & field landscape,
i love the gradient of the sky and water colour tones,



Ciao Foozi. Nice compo in perspective with good colours and contrast. Right light and details so like space's management.

Hello Foozi,
This is a fine example of perspective, the canal disappearing into the horizon with the paddy fields on either side. Once again the clear blue sky adds depth to the image. This looks like a bit of Holland in the tropics!
Thanks and have a good week,

Hi Foozi,what a beautiful and geometric composition,an unusual pic for TN and a very nice example of photogrphic class...but we know you and all is possible from your hand! Very good sharpness and a lot of colors!Thanks for share,have a nice day,LUCIANO

Hellow Foozi,
A simple and neat photo with good use of natural light and F11 has given infinite depth.Nice linear perspective with well balanced tones of browns and greens on either side of the canal.A seemingly simple image but without this canal and its life giving water a situatin which could lead to absolute disaster to these fields.Good eye to pich up this landscape scene.
