Those aren't Platemys, for sure. Platemys is more of a forest floor/puddle turtle than a river turtle and it has a very different shell shape. It also doesn't get that big.
They are probably one of the species of Amazonian River Turtles in the genus Podocnemis.
I like the symmetry of the composition. It is a pity the light was so harsh.
