A shot is taken on the shore of a remote Lake Tempe located in central region of South Sulawesi Province. These are the traditional canoes or 'katinting', a long and shallow draft canoes widely used by the Bugis native inhabitants as their main transportation around the extensive network of waterways. I just love the pure celebration of colours and the unique traditional motif with the resemblances of Bugis Scripts.
This canoe represents only one the countless types of indigenous sailing vessels of the nation with 13000 islands that makeup the maritime nation of Indonesia or well known as Land Under the Rainbow, the world's fourth most populous and ethnically a highly diverse nation coloured by over 380 ethnic groups with over 580 dialects...
Shooting location: Salomate Village on the eastern shore on a slight cloudy afternoon.

exquisite composition with the three boats and the water with the reflections. Beautiful colours and graphic quality. I loved the tight and close framing that brings out the interesting details perfectly.
Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.

From reading your note, its a diverse and colorful place, so how fitting that the boats represent this so well. beautiful colors (the colors of the South African flag on one!). The water reflecting the colors is brilliant too, even though its like glass, it has a nice bobbing sense of movement so we know its water. The light shining from it is class too, it seems to be coming from the depths!
Thanks as always

You're capturing well this scene by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impresiive to see long/colorful canoes as inhabitant's transportation which anchor and is present in lake bank. And, the reflection projected to the lake draws out a good effect.
mirosu (15074) 2014-05-23 23:38

Ciao dear Abmdsudi
Yes a feast of colours and a characteristic collection of boats. On top of that, the silvery light on the water is pure magic. I love your low POV and the impressive perspective that creates in combination with the splayed boats. Wonderful work as usual, thanks for sharing.
ourania (33797) 2014-06-01 4:36
this picture is so attractive for its elegant and dynamic perspective, beautiful colours and calm mood. You used perspective and depth in an unusual manner, so bold and so effective. The tight framing has exalted the style and colours of the boats, the human presence adds reference and significance. The water has the texture of glass, its reflections and fragility make a superb backdrop. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,

Yes, this photo has a lot going for it, a feast of colors, abundant reflections and that lovely shimmer off the water. It's a delight to look at.

Charming and well saturated boat scene, Abmdsudi.
A great mirror effect of the colors, mostly green, and the clouds from above.
Woman doing the loundry on water edge, added marvelous life to the scene.
