Thailand hats are great subjects

I was on a boat gliding along the floating market in Thailand when I captured this image. I’ve always liked it for the line of hats along the right hand side. I was able to capture a lot of the hats and their details. But when I look at this now, I feel as if the man also takes a little bit of precedence in this photo, almost stealing the focus away from the hats. It’s not so much the man, but his arm and veins that actually stand out at me the most. I almost wish his arm was in his boat and not pushing off the boat with the hats.

I couldn’t control where his arm was at the time, but with a little bit of thinking, I could have waited a couple seconds later and taken the picture again.moment

I know when you’re in the moment, it may be hard to focus and try different things but it’s good practice to keep in the back of your head what would make for a more pleasing photograph.
