Captured at Cocoplum canal, for those not familiar with Miami, Cocoplum is one of the most exclusive areas of the Grand Miami, where the real rich people live.

Carlos by the look of those motors, I would say they have lots of power, good action capture, and I like the candid take. tigs=^..^=

That looks very inviting.. take me please?

... ...

Nicely composed, Carlos.

And a well done on the technical side of things.. exposure is more than just good good. As is.. focus/clarity, et al.

I particularly like the shadows at the top and to the right-hand side. Creates, or, perhaps, enhances the negative space and that in turn, puts your subject matter at the forefront of your viewer's eyes.

... ...

Just noticed the three (3).. count'em.. three 300 HP motors.

Nice, indeed.

Thanks for giving us a peek into the lifestyles of the rich and (maybe?) famous.

+favs for me.

I wish I was a Glow Worm, a Glow Worm's never glum, 'cause how can you be grumpy, when the sun shines out your bum?

Judging by the size of that boat, obviously large enough below decks for sleeping, the double pilot seat, 600 hp to push it, and what looks like a satellite enhancer for television on the roof (?)... yeah... rich folks. My wife and I were once invited to join some of her co-workers on her boss's pontoon for an early evening ride on the river (the boss lived in the "rich" part of town with built-in channels and marinas for everyone). So we putted through their subdivision, crossed the river and putted through another one, even richer. These were homes that, in Miami, would cost $5 to $6 million each ($1 to $2 million up here), with stunning back yards, decks, patios, docks, pools, tennis courts, etc., the works. It was a beautiful evening, no bugs, light breeze, fair temperature. We must have putted past a couple hundred of these mansions and saw absolutely no one outside enjoying the evening or their property... no one. I hope (and it does appear) that these rich folks you've captured here, truly enjoy what they have. A tale of our times. I'm just surprised to see that none of them is on a cell phone (then again, they don't look like teenagers ;o)
