Be enchanted by the glorious view at sunrise when the river is bathed in riots of colors, red and girlish pink appear to be their favourite. Simply brilliant slice of life, beautifully dynamic and full of energy, so feast your eyes even if only for one quick look as they would disappear within two hours.
Shot taken with the rising sun behind me from a spanning bridge, the best vantage point. Exposure measured on the foreground using Grey ND filter for more balance lighting.

Quelle superbe lumière pour éclairer cette scène!
Une très bonne musicalité des couleurs dans cette réalisation.

l'inquadratura esalta la bellezza della scena con i tanti colori, le barche e il verde delle palme in BG,

Hello Abmdsudi,so much action,so much to look at in a most charming and colourful scene,all those boats and people going about their daily business.
A glorious sight to behold,just lovely.
Kind regards Les.

I rmember this place, but this is another angle and the light is even better. This is a marvellous combination of bright sunshine and black clouds. The dozens of canoes are spectacularly colourful and the general setting is very exotic. (I don't really like that word but from a European point of view I can't find any that better suits this kind of environment).
Budapestman (82620) 2012-08-14 11:07
a fantastic atmosphere with beautiful composition and details, the colours and lights are splendid, great shot! Tfs! Have a nice week! Kellemes hetet kívánok!

Another great shot of the market, Abmdsudi, this time with very dramatic darkening clouds in BG adding a lot of contrast with the bright colors of the boats. Nice clarity and framing - the boats in foreground create an interesting pattern that leads the eye into the rest of the frame.
papagolf21 (81654) 2012-08-14 11:26
La composition est très belle, c'est encore une réussite.
Le tableau est enchanteur. Le ciel gris ardoise est menaçant à souhait.
Le résultat est superbe.

Hello Abmdsudi ,

Graal (94162) 2012-08-14 12:21
good shot during the sunrise time. Another amazing floating market here. Fine reportage about the daily life. Very nice colours and light. Well result of ND filter.
Have a nice evening.
siudzi (29619) 2012-08-14 12:33
Another excellent image of this great and colorful scene. This time the warm lights captured on the boats in the foreground built a very special look and effect. Like it a lot! Well done.
ourania (22744) 2012-08-14 12:43
how very beautiful, nature and people in harmony, all benefiting from this magnificent light! I love the way you composed and lit this amazing scene, capturing superbly both the essence of the natural environment and of the daily life there. The clarity and marvellous capture of details, the wonderful colours enlivened by the morning light, the great contrasts (which, in my opinion, also remind us how ephemeral such moments are), all these individually and combined make the picture captivating. Your work here has been most effective and you have really managed to make spectators share your impression and awe. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Boa noite Abmdsudi
A image full of life and beauty. The colors are magnificent. For me, it's like a dream when I see these images of this part of the world. Thanks for sharing.
daddo (21468) 2012-08-14 17:07
Salam Abmdsudi.I cannot see the women's faces but I have been told by both Malays and Indonesians that the most beautiful women in the region are to be found in Kalimantan.You have captured vividly the hustle and bustle here and the penchant for bright colours. The sun behind you served your artistic aspirations superbly. Salam. Klaudio.
npecanhuk (59020) 2012-08-14 18:08
I like this one too!
Those colors are wonderful!
Great management of light with attractive contrasts!
Chosen pov and composition are excellent photo qualities as well!
TFS - congrats,
emka (68624) 2012-08-14 23:14
Usually such floating markets are on the narrower water way, here it is wide and and this crowd of boats looks terrific. Fantastic view in sunrise light. interesting buildings also on the right side.
Zengi001 (2319) 2012-08-14 23:20
Lively, crowded and colorful scene.
When decreased saturation a little, I noticed that it looks very much like an islamic miniature painting from the medeival ages. Nice shot!
macondo (18471) 2012-08-15 0:17
A marvellous interplay of the low-slanting morning light and dark clouds in this superb panoramic shot. You have conveyed very well the teeming life on the river as the many boats begin to move. Glorious touches of colour. Your exposure settings were excellent to capture the atmosphere.
SnapRJW (27048) 2012-08-15 1:38
Hello Abmdsudi - A bustling busy market scene, full of colour and life and all taking place on the water. Fantastic DL shot, it must have been fabulous to see this with your own eyes! Warm regards rosemary
sacimar (25971) 2012-08-15 4:26
this is an interesting image, I like the scene you show here, the warm light creates a nice atmosphere, and the dozens of boats catch the attention, well done,
cornejo (25499) 2012-08-15 4:30

Fantastic picture full of colors and ligths, the black sky stands out even more the beauty of the scene. Another great shot my friend! Thanks for sharing!
timecapturer (41826) 2012-08-15 6:10
what a fascinating shot this is! Full of wonderful elements and so much to look at. The colours, light and sky make this so irresistible. A gloriously original image.

Oceania (4082) 2012-08-15 7:34
I think it was a morning market on water.
Wow, life is so different over there.
eldancer1 (23081) 2012-08-15 9:13
If not for the dark clouds in the background this looks like a great to shop for fresh produce. Awesome documentation of the daily life. I do like the early morning light. Good dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
Cricri (96993) 2012-08-15 10:03
Très jolie composition, la lumière est très belle et les couleurs émerveille la vue, un ciel gris/bleu qui fait un joli contraste, très jolie
maria-v1981 (10420) 2012-08-15 12:17
Another wonderfully composed shot of this amazing river where seems to be very croudy. Such beautiful colours and astonishing detail. An accomplished, high quality image that is visually stunning.
marabu61 (6491) 2012-08-15 14:39
Wow, what great colors. The contrast between the dark clouded sky and the merry boats in the foreground is striking.
bukitgolfb301 (33724) 2012-08-15 16:26

aliabazari (10526) 2012-08-15 20:04
The landscape is very beautiful and substantial. Exposure is good. Accessed and played well. Enjoyable.
I respect my friend.
josepmarin (57267) 2012-08-16 4:03
the weak light of the sunrise and the warmth of the colors create a very beautiful atmosphere on this scene in the river, in which the canoes form a floating very busy and very vital market.
The quality of the image and of the colors, as well as the dramatic power of the clouds in the sky, they increase the beauty of your composition.
A beautiful work.
Schnappilic (9682) 2012-08-16 7:19
Wonderful picture with perfect idea for such framing. The result is huge. Congratulations!
All the best,
korbee (6615) 2012-08-16 11:45
This is the light Im always looking for,it brings everyting to life,so much colors here,its well worth to get up early!
adores (32694) 2012-08-16 18:28
Another great one! And really Asia also:)!Seems it was sunny but some heavy rain was coming! I really like this atmosphere!
It's impressive to see so much life and colour along the river. A great moment, and you found a great pov!
jemaflor (77476) 2012-08-17 8:00
interesting scene well taken from this pov, colourful and pleasant composition with all these boats, tfs.
adramad (33584) 2012-08-17 10:39
What a wonderful scene in this market, like a picture out of epoche, its quaintness and charm is special.
The POV is great, I like how you composed the scene with the river and the abundance of boats in the foreground and middle ground, while the bottom edge closes the wonderful vegetation and filled with lovely homes, the drama of the sky is an ideal .
Well done. I love it.
Have a nice weekend.
nikkitta (11142) 2012-08-17 18:13
Beautiful and colorful capture with all this boats at the FG
But what fascinates me is the BG with the vegetation, typical houses and cloudy sky
It seems an scene from a film
TFS and greetings
siolaw (37644) 2012-08-20 1:55
A beautiful light intensifying the colours of this colourful scene! Goo view on the river banks with Mosque and houses too.
Kielia (22293) 2012-08-20 4:41
reading your note is like witnessing the moment that you have documented excellently. The composition is outstanding, the light is fantastic and especially the brilliant colors are wonderful. Thanks for sharing this unforgettable moment!
sacavem (18608) 2012-08-20 8:59
Excellent compo and POV, very nice colours, textures and light.I like the post-processing.
karacabeylis (1465) 2012-08-23 5:29
a great one indeed. the colors are wonderful and the scene is so wonderful.
kwekwekan (946) 2012-08-26 6:36
There are many photos of floating markets on TE, but the common POV seems to be to shoot from a bridge looking straight down into the merchandise for sale. Here you have taken us back to a more classical landscape POV and the result is stunning! A fantastic array of boats with a beautiful tropical backdrop two thirds up the picture. Great lighting conditions too with a dark morning sky and bright illuminated river in the foreground. TFS
macjake (49318) 2012-08-28 14:27
certainly a different photo because of all the boats, but have to say its a wonderful scene.
the lighting is amazing!
combine that with the brooding clouds above it makes for such an interesting visual.
I really like this one alot.
enjoy your day
CLODO (27680) 2012-08-29 0:15
I missed this one during my holidays! I like it very much, by the different colored spots on the river and the stormy sky.
PiotrF (2382) 2012-09-17 10:02
Excellent frame and colors!
cyntouille (45) 2012-12-02 10:39
Quelle merveilleuse image. Le mariage du sombre et du lumineux confère à cette image une ambiance extraordinaire!!!! Love it!!! Very much!!! Thanks for saring such pics.
Robert1969 (6758) 2012-12-21 2:51
Like what you wrote: this picture has a lots
dynamic and it's full of energy, but it isn't
to busy (very importent), so that shows that
the composition (and point of view) is
excellent. Light management is also excellent
and the dark sky fits very well (makes the
dynamic in this picture extra strong).
Friendly regards, happy Christmas and a

I travel to the seas, through the mountains, I see people that I have never seen before, I see exotic, unique, beautiful, I see color marvels and magic moments, I see skies crying and rivers flowing softly, I see glorious views and spectacular sceneries of this beautiful world
and I only have you to blame for..
