The small prosperous country of Brunei on the large island of Borneo derives most of its wealth from oil deposits offshore. Shown here is a suburban housing estate near Bandar Seri Begawan airport taken late afternoon.

Wow, a great aerial, Chris. Brunei looks much modern than I imagined. Beautiful.

hi chris, this one i appreciate more for its informative "mission" rather, than technical perfection;
indeed its an exciting view and the countries like brunei have always been a kind of a question mark to me;
thanks for sharing;
have a nice weekend; jerzy

Hi Chris! Now, I've seen Brunei! With the elevation you had, the land and its topography can still be seen well! The water and its land formations look interesting as well. A great aerial shot. rgds.

Welcome to Brunei!! Its nice to see another TE member touching down here. I hope you will enjoy your stay and looking forward to see more shots. Nice composition and textural effect. The red roofs does break the monotony and gives interest. Regards.

Interesting aerial photo, Chris. A nice pattern is provided by the alignment of houses in this residential area, and the clouds hovering above are well rendered, too. Good half/half division between land and sea.

Très bonne réalisation !
C’est incroyable et très graphique à la fois !

Wonderful shot Chris. This is it. This the learning about the world. Clouds, small islands and the well planned city look amazing. Very good job. Thanks for sharing...

Hi Chris, a great air picture of Brunei, excellent panoramic image, the different colours of the parts of houses, this is wonderful out of plane.
papagolf21 (83264) 2005-03-12 8:18
Une vue aérienne qui permet de voir la disposition des maisons qui semblent être identiques par quartiers. Je ne vois pas beaucoup de piscines pour un pays où l'or noir coule à flot ! ;-)
Encore un joyau extrait de votre trésor.

One can see that this suburb was complete planed on the drawing-board and not natural grown.Good compo with the sea and the small islands in the background.
A fine image!
Kenny10pin (19301) 2005-03-12 11:18
what a great aerial shot, I liek the houses and also the dof is very ncie too, well done
weswang (18223) 2005-03-12 11:55
An excellent bird's eye view picture. It is interesting that the houses are grouped together by different colors. The cloud and the water made the picture very attractive.
manny (21833) 2005-03-12 12:26
Cool..excellent patterns. I like how they come together to create a neat image.
chinchini (31529) 2005-03-12 18:02
Quel excellent cadrage ! Tout tient dans l'image. Beaucoup de profondeur aussi qui laisse deviner l'urbanisation de l'arrière-plan.
Très bon !
Rockyboy (20598) 2005-03-12 19:04
Great aerial view here, Chris. Il like this structure of the houses on the land and the clous far in the BG. Well done!
PLD_images (7149) 2005-03-12 20:30
Wow Chris, C'est une bonne photo!!!
What a cool shot. I like everything about it, especially the fact that houses seems to be all the same color in each side. This reminds me of a small community that I stayed in for a couple years, it was circular this way and right by a big lake.
Thanks for this one.

Hi Chris, you are not only the king of Pov, but laso a very prolific photographer! Tons of pictures to let us discove some of the very beautiful places of the world, great. This is another great aerial shot, very graphic with those buildings alignement, astonishing and very nice to look at. A beautiful place.

Hi Chris - I bet this place would be quite dull at ground level, the aereal shows its best angle.
Chanizard (129) 2008-03-21 7:30
very nice angle showing the whole are , which very fantastic
great color and contrast
berek (33613) 2009-05-25 4:37
what a wonderful bird eyes view. I like wide angle taken . I can see all part this interesting area. congratulations.
Have a great week.
banyanman (7789) 2009-08-10 6:02
This turned out quite well for a through-the-aircraft-window shot, Chris. I guess you must have had the light behind you because the colour saturation is quite strong. During the day many of these aerial shots would look quite washed out. Good there were no clouds in the foreground too. Cheers . . . David
