    Esta toma es espectacular, aqui observo al equipo remar de espaldas al objetivo, el lider esta claro hacia donde los lleva, eso es liderazgo, un lider y los seguidores en equipo por el mismo objetivo, o meta, en este caso.

    The color contrast between the waters – light and dark is like the difference between the competitor and the spectator…

    Love the shadow of the bridge. It shows us the photographer wants to show us the truth, which is rear in the time of Photoshop.

    The Shade of the Bridge from which the Photographer took the pic is seen on the pic. That gives away the beauty. You can see the electric wires also in the shade.
