5.12 p.m. - Pantai Serasa (Serasa Beach) at Muara is a popular spot for keen anglers both young and old. It is especially so during weekends where it is also treated as a family outing. I was told that the fishing activity goes on into the night.
Serasa beach is about half an hour’s drive from Bandar Seri Begawan town centre. It is in fact a narrow peninsular which juts out into the sea and offering ideal site for recreational activities like sailing, wind surfing and fishing. Here I saw these two young girls with their rods and while waiting for the bite they seemed to have some fun with the water. With this exposure they may become serious anglers when they grow up.

Ah, what a scene of childhood fun. Nice shot of the enjoyment on the quiet beach. A well seen and well captured daily life of childhood. I wish I can be as worriless as they are. Nice shot, Aloysius.

Good shot of those two children. You put them in a good composition. I like the background with the stones and wood, without showing any sky. Good work.

Hi Aloysius. It looks a little overcast but it still turned out very good. I like this contemplative moment with these children. Do you know what sort of fish they would be fishing for? Good one Aloysius.

Splendid capture you did so well to these two girls fishing. Excelent point of view and enquadrement of all the elements. Peaceful and cotemplative moment that make me remember when I young and also go fishing. Very well see, done and composed, with good light, colors and many precious deytails.
Congratulations and all the best to you.

A well composed shot of this charming scene. I like the unconcerned expressions of the children and the way the fishing rod is positioned. The sand is well textured and there is an overall mood of tranquillity and peace. Long may children be able to enjoy such quiet moments without fear.

A sad atmopshere, I suppose because of the light. It's quite grey and dark...
But the dof is OK and I like the idea you made a compo with such a stuff.

This is an interesting view of daily life of the smaller ones..!
Seems like they are busy doing other things while waiting for the fish to bite... I think I can recall the situation from years and year back!
This is a well balanced composition with great human interest, good lines and action well captured... Great colours and details and all well done!
