To Ricx: Fishing boat

Richard,
It was taken without a tripod, the lens is a Nikon 1.4 50mm, it was shot at 1.4 so the depth of field is very shallow.
Thanks for your comments.

To khalik4455: Really, he didn't did he

Khalik,
Thanks for your comments, you might be right but the picture was taken in B&W.
