6.33 p.m. - I have posted a few shots on this park earlier but this time I would like to show how the lighted structure with the fountain in the middle looks like against an interesting and colourful sky. I am looking south so the setting sun is at three o’clock. I also tried to keep some of the green visible.
For those who have not seen my earlier shots, the Silver Jubilee Park was built to commemorate the 25th year of the Sultan’s ascension to the throne (1967 – 1992). This structure has 5 arched entrances to symbolize the 5 Pillars of Islam. It has 25 columns for the 25 years of the Sultan’s reign. In the centre is the main fountain to show the Sultan and the government’s effort in protecting and caring for the people of Brunei. Surrounding the structure are smaller fountains which shows the people’s support and loyalty to His Majesty’s government

Quite a nice sunset, the strong colour and sharpness looks really good as it seems to be perfectly placed over the structure.

Hi Aloysius, A beautiful shot of the colors and the mood at dusk. A good timing to show the blue and orange colored sky together with the highlight of the fountain at the peak of the hill. Nicely composed beautiful shot. Well done.

A stunning sunset shot, with superb shadow and silhouette effects. The structure is seen with amazing clarity, given the low light conditions. I also like the proportion of foreground and sky you have given to balance the structure nicely and give a sense of proportions. A fine capture, Aloysius. Very alluring.

Only a short delay to take a small pause and now I'm here to make my usual sharing critiques, but you are moving fast in your nice posts.
Excelent near evening atmosphere that you present to us from this beautiful moment and detailed Jubilee Park Sunset. Splendid angle of view with light, perspective, graphism, colors, fine sharpness and enquadrement with the near surrounding light contrast view. Great work with your eye catch. A fine artwork and resulting excelent composition.
~Congratulations, all the best to you and have a happy&nice weekend.

Very beautiful colours and superb light. The exposure was just right and the intense orange of the sky composed very well with the lighted structure. Very good.

A great dof for a sunset compo. The structure fits well to the orange sky.
Impressive and very well realised.
