Graceful Ways

Zacatecoluca, La Paz, El Salvador.

This photo was taken on a shrimp farm. Every year vet students visit this place and this year I hitched a ride with them. This is a photo in the moment of them feeding the shrimps. Even though the farm uses motorized propellers for giving air during the night and they even have a tiny HES, some things don't really change and that is how you feed them.
I probably could've used even higher shutter speeds, but it does look like speed of 1/1000th of a second was enough to capture the image sharp and dramatic enough, with low enough noise, only ISO 400.

Can I take this beautiful pictures as a base for one of my future drawing? 
It's a very beautiful pic, with very good colours.

A lovely shot. Like everyone I'll note the wonderful colours, and also a dynamic flavour and the air of both light, feeling free and being immersed in labour at the same time. A beautiful picture of life.

pretty as the person feeds the fish 

I agree with the title as it looks graceful with the bowed line of food being dispersed into the water as he stands on the boat 

pretty color scheme of scenery n landscape in relation to the person on the boat

I think the shutter speed was just right for both a captured moment and the implied motion. Good timing too. :clap:
