    This is a stunning image, Ahmed. The silouhette of the fishermen really stands out against the midtones of the image. Beautiful comp, too! Congratulations.

Somehow I feel like I'm having some sort of religious experience when I view this image. The long shadow of the man with his staff, coupled with the silhouette where the staff has a sunburst at its end...

Wow! Absolutely amazing.

Outstanding image! Love the diagonal created by the shadow and man, the tones, light, details and silhouette. Congratulations on being featured and on getting a golden badge!
