The view from the sunset bar (Sala Khounta), in Vientiane, looking across the Mekong River, into Thailand. The locals are playing soccer. It's the middle of the dry season, & about an hour before sunset.

hi chris, interesting layering, and i like the limited tonal range - makes this image nearly monochromatic yet still with a nice green-toutch; tiny figures are a bonus;
best wishes, jerzy

Hi Chris, it's a pity that the scanner processing lost many colori, cause the view from an excellent POV was really beautiful.
all that shadows there were walking on the mekong banks are mazing!

Nice sunset view Chris... good reflections of light in the water and nice silhouette of the persons walking on the shores of the river..

Hi Chris, A very nice PoV from this point. The silhouette view of the people there playing soccer has provided the indication of the wide angle view. A well composed picture. I like the dream-alike style of the sandbars in the middle of the river. Nice shot.

This scene has a lovely calm atmosphere adn the evening light gives a great effect over the water. I like the foreground detail and the silhouetted figures which add life and interest and help to give an effect of recession into the distance.

The silhouette of the people playing soccer give a good idea of the dimensions. It's well photographed.

Good use of silhouettes and horizontal layering in the framing for this one, Chris. Nice effect with the light reflections on the water surface. I think this one would be a good candidate for a full b&w.
