Good Cliffy 2006-05-05 11:25

A rather incongruous shot because you expect to see dhows and other such craft not a huge floating palace like this.i like the composition and it is sharp and well exposed.pity about the washed out sky though.


Un projectile plutôt incongru parce que vous comptez voir les dhaws et tout autre un tel métier pas un palais flottant énorme comme this.i comme la composition et c'est exposed.pity pointu et bon au sujet du lavé hors du ciel cependant.

Maybe its the translation of babel Fish that is wrong but a DHOW in english is one of those boats that trade along the coast of the arab world and on their rivers.
Examples can be seen at

The french name for this is "Felouque".
You will see this kind of boat soon...
Translation through computer is really bad !!
i.e. Shot (in photographic spirit) is a photo. Translators gives "projectile" (like war spirit is an object delivered by a gun, lol...)
Thank for your answer.
Cheers
JP
