Default Fisherman on boat at Sunset

After leaving my D7000 in Australia by a last minute mix up I decided to make the best and use my P&S canon. My fuji also stayed home as I was only taking the nikon and the canon. Trying to make the best and trying to improve my photo skills, at least composition and light with a limited resourse.
the canon has no manual controls apart from exposuure comp.

Nice shot but he looks more like he is smoking a joint than fishing.

Hi Calicajun you could be right as he was coming back from his trip. I guess I made a wrong title choice but thankyou for your comment.

It may sound silly but the title of a picture is very important to how the viewer sees the picture. Example; back in college I showed three pictures to the photography class with no titles. At that time, I thought the pictures should stand completely on their own. No one seemed to care much for the pictures. Showed the same three pictures about three years later with titles and this time had a very good response from everyone. Well everyone except the teacher who remember the pictures. That is a problem being friends with the teacher. My point, titles are important to a picture, we take time and care taking the pictures and PP. We should also take as much time and care in presenting our finished work too.

G'day Flasha

I think that both the camera & the photographer have done okay with this one
Great composition, good subject, good reproduction of colours & tones

no doubt, great holiday too !!
Regards,Phil

Hi Calicajun and Phil,

Thankyou for the heads up on the title info as I never realy given that much thought to it previously other than just name picture. I guess the guy not actualy fishing but just coming back from wherever he came from should have been a vital clue.

Phil I apreciate the comments as it deffinately forces you to look at things a bit more differentley. Yes I am definately enjoying my time over here, I am on an Island called Brac in the capital Supetar. The beach right across the road from where we are staying. I am getting my Fuji HS-10 shipped to me so will look forward when that comes but in the meantime will try to capture the light.

What do you think about cropping it a bit tighter?

Colors are beautiful. Its not that sharp, but if its on flickr then it could just be flickr's processing ( i have no end of issues with flickr making sharp images look soft).

If only the fisherman was actually engaged in the act of fishing it would go from a good shot to a great shot.
