Taken whilst on a early morning water taxi ride. These white walled and red roofed houses built on stilts are part of a water village close to the Bruneian capital Bandar Seri Begawan. Most of the houses in the village are painted a variety of bright colours - making this group stand out because of their uniformity.

Very nice capture of these houses. The sky is superb with beautifully dispersed clouds.I like that you have not cropped the sky because it is giving a depth in your photo and the sky itself is so beautiful in your shot.
Very good sharpness and colors.
Nice composition. TFS.

Well composed, excellent tone and a fine photograph!
You're capturing this scenery from a good angle.
It harmonizes well about the contrast between housing complex with red roof, blue sky with thick white clouds and water, I think.

Hello my dear Marlene
Very natural and comfortable color contrast.
Pan focus approach by wide focus lens makes great success. Waiting for further masterpiece.
Thanks for sharing and best regards,

The sky is very beautifull and gives a sense of immensity and calm.

It is nice to see the photo of such a picturesque water village situated in the very exotic for me country. The scene is very well composed and skilfully captured with beautiful colors under excellent light. Very good presentation of this interesting place!

After an one week break shopping, traveling and photographing in Southern Thailand we now have returned to Alor Star and TE. Thanks for your critique of my motorcycle driver on the jetty. More light on the face of the driver, sorry, that is not possible because I was shooting with back light. Your composition of these row of white houses sets a beautiful contrast to the water and the vivid sky. Very good light management and POV. Well done

Row houses on stilts..looks quite interesting! The perspective with the houses is well defined. Like the reflection of the houses in the water of the sea. Good light & contrast in this well done shot!

taking the water taxi is fun isn't it, a very memorable experience!
even with this bright bright light, it looks picturesque and warm, shining strongly creating elegant water reflections.
the angled compo adds depth aswell.

You chose a good POV and framing to take this shot. A nice perspective with a good inclusion of light blue sky. Well done!

perhaps you already did not expect me to re-appear on TE? :) Well, I am happy I've managed to, somehow.. though I can't say for how long again.
I chose this photo of all your recent photos mainly because there's so much sky here, and this sky adds a very special feeling to this view. The sky and the reflection of the houses are in nice harmony :)
This view conveys a nice mood!
Warmest greetings from "up here",
