Photographer's Note

Halong Bay, Vietnam

Taken during the same session as this picture. A similar shot BUT different angle, POV, and "action".

For this shot, I squatted in the ground to go low. I wanted to get as much reflection in the water. I also put the nearer boat in the middle and include a distant one to show perspective. I also move around to get a different angle.

Life is like that. We need to sometimes go down to get a better view of life. WE also need to "stray" sometimes to get more perspectives in life. It does widen our horizon and enrich our experiences. We shouldn't be threatened by stressful situations. Like the mist in the picture, such a challenge in life is a positive stress, a eustress.

Auto adjustments, USM, adjust saturation, straightened the horizon, added a slight "cooling" filter.
