Are they praying for their survival? I know I would be!

Expressions of sheer determination and/or concentration?

You captured the expressions on the faces wonderfully! The border may be a bit strong and heavy for this shot - I would rather see a bigger shot with more detail.

Looks like that paddling is some hard work. Nice choice in composition.

First impression was wondering what the story behind the shot was. After reading the title and noticing the pink shirts... This is different and it catches your attention. The ladies are in a canoe, but their posture does not indicate they are paddling. Normally ladies are well-kempt, but these ladies are not. Nor does it look like they are at the end of a race or competition. The shot eliminates all the obvious answers as to what this is about, until you realize this is probably a moment of remembrance for those who were not survivors. Then this becomes a very poignant and precious moment. Yes, some pictures are worth 1000 words. This one exceeds that by a fair bit.

i dont like the border. there is a peaceful sense of reflection showing though. processing maybe a tad over done.
