To The Judges

First, I am really glad my photos has been selected as a finalists.

About this photo, I took this photo in Shan State of Myanmar, INLE LAKE.

These people stays in the lake and they make a living by fishing and selling it to the markets.

I got this shot by a Great Great Great luck. By the time they were coming far away , I was setting up my camera waiting for them. As soon as they pass through I shout them "please stop " for a while and they stopped in the middle of the water and they were making me sick as they dont understand what I mean. So I requested them to row backward and row forward passing through my camera again and I took with Continous programme 5 frames per sec and got this very beautiful one :) #5943549
