This shot was taken at 6.35p.m., just before I took the shot on “Twilight Fishing”. The sky is fast getting darker and the colours most intense before slowly disappearing and turning to black. The river that runs across is the Kedayan River a tributary of the Brunei River. Across the river is the satellite commercial centre called “Kiulap”. Just on the horizon can be seen the silhouette of the Islamic Development Bank building. It is a fast growing commercial area and is attracting a lot of businessmen and customers alike. Traffic jams are commonly seen. If you have not been to Brunei for the last 10 years you will be surprised at the development.
I cropped off part of the top and bottom portion. No sharpening but increase the saturation one step at fine. Contrast +3.

Very nice job Aloysius, I can't believe that color in the globes, it's almost eerie, especially against that dark red sky. What a cool shot!
Best to you,

Hello Aloysius. Another shot with draw dropping colors. I love the contrast between the streetlights and the sunset's colors. Again the range of dark gold and reds is incredible. I've never seen anything quite like this, congrats!

aha .. nice shot
This is the first shot in which i have seen street lights being put to good use in the framing of the shot ... most of the time they act as a noise only

another very nice sunset! I agree with matt (Moosicman) is incredible how the lamps appear green/blue when everything other is red! Strong affect os an beautiful sky. I was curious to see if a little bit of more light on the shadows can modify the atmosphere
Nice job Aloysius, well done!

Another superb sunset, with excellent colir, graphism & silhouettes. I like the lamps, & their parallel perspective to the angled clouds. Bagus sekali!
