Continue from my short trip to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
At around 8AM, I got sown from the hotel and walked over to the waterfront. There are stalls lining there but closed in the morning.
There were boats berthing along the coast. It was quiet in the water until this small boat passed by.
The sun was bright and the quietness here gave me a sense of peace.
For this photo, I adjusted the level and contrast for the photo. It was quite tricky to get the shoot level without adjusting in post processing, especially seeing a small boat passing by fast. 8-)
Have a fast but steady day ahead !

Yeah, seem that you are enjoying every moment of your short trip in KK.
Another nice view from the hotel, huh.
Such a cool and inviting scenery when waking up early in the morning and greeted by the sun and welcoming by the sound of the passing boats.
Cheers and stay well.

Hi Chai, Good frame, very nice landscape as an island, well taken these two different boats.

You show us a very lovely panorama view, certainly in foreground the river and two boats, the island in middle care for excellent green colour, but also in background the sea with endless view.

Hi Chai, A nice composition with excellent PoV and attractive color contrast and clarity. The small boat has added an attractive speeding feeling and dynamics to this quiet scene. A well seen and well taken picture.

A funny title! I like the two boats on both sides of the picture. The land with trees and small buildings looks nice behind them. A nice morning atmosphere is in this picture. Good work!

a good view, pleasant the water in front and the sea behind the landenght greens sharp detailled, the boats in front bring life to it.

Certainly a good view to have after a good breakfast. I like the layering that you get in this composition with each layer having its own function and beauty. I may equate it to "kuih lapis" or layer cake, always exciting and delicious. The speedboat is a good add. Well done!! All the best.
