Kota Kinabalu (formerly Jesselton)is the capital of Sabah state in Malaysia. The city is located on the northwest coast of Borneo facing the South China Sea. The Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park lies on one side and Mount Kinabalu, which gave the city its name, is nearby.
You can also find many stilt villages around the city, in the areas of Sembulan, Tanjung Aru, Kampung Likas, and Kampung Pondo in Pulau Gaya. These houses are built on coastal shallow waters and are typical homes for the Bajau and Suluk inhabitants.
For the sunset I headed to one of the water village areas, but just before sunset I had some crazy tropical storm with lots of rain, however it ended just in time so I could take some nice shots of that amazing sky that exploded with color later on.

Sharpness, (long) exposure, chosen pov, (saturated) colors, horizontal format, dof, contrasts and symmetrical composition are all oustanding features here!
I love that magnificent sky and those very attractive reflections!
TFS - congrats,

Quite some time without seeing you on TE, thought you were gone
Back with, as usual, a shot of extremely good quality, worked up with much care in the post processing
Of course nice colors and light for an image quite moody and poetic
Have a nice evening

That's nice to see a picture of you here again! Your apparitions are as rare as the blossoming of some specific vegetal species!...
This one is fantastic, with exquisite colors and a sublime smooth texture of the water. No matter if it looks unrealistic; it is absolutely charming! The framing is perfect, with a perspective that opens on a dream...

this is both intriguing and stunning. Amazing light and colours, but it is the composition that makes it so outstanding. A remarkable and wondrous image presented so dramatically. Bravo!!!
