Hello friends in TE.
Tambang is the local name for a sampan, a small wooden boat about 5 metres long, with a pitched roof covering bench seats that run along either side of the boat. The tambang has two main sources of power, a small single-cylinder diesel engine and a pair of forward-facing oars which are also used to assist with steering. The tambangs are still an essential component of Kuching's public transport network, linking the Malay kampungs on the north bank of the Sarawak River with the Kuching Waterfront and city centre on the south. They are heavily used by commuters, housewives and schoolchildren, saving a lengthy detour via the bridge at Satok. They are also a great way to discover the city and its people.

This an amazing boat, so characteristic and unusual. I love the colours and the perspective created by the wide angle is really artistic. Thanks for sharing this unique and informative photo and note.

mi piace l'impatto cromatico che ha l'immagine con il tetto della barca che apre in FG la scena.
Buona la profondità che mostra bene la città sullo sfondo,

J'aime beaucoup que le bateau pointe dans une direction que le regard suit dans l'image. Le rose capte totalement l'attention.

An unusual boat where the seats are nicely covered. I like the colors pink and blue. The view beyond the boat is very pretty with nice buildings. The sharpness, brightness and colors are perfect.

the notes are very interesting and explain the function and type of construction of Tambang.
Very effective camera angle that brings out the color of a pitched roof and makes a strong attraction. Congratulations.
A warm hug.

Wow, yhis really caught my eye, the striking colour of this tambang not only creates a strong contrast but it also tranforms the environment into a cheery scene. It simply triggers the senses and the layout is interesting and dynamic as the effect of wide lens is pretty evident here. A real cool shot superbly exposed within the peaceful looking sight The water looks so smooth with nice additional colors in the far background and I think the color combination here is so harmonious and makes this tambang the real star of the show. A very pleasing shot, awesome. TFS, Congrats

The hot pink colour makes a nice warm cold colour contrast against the blue sky & shadows. Superb sharpness & good saturation & framing. Nice reflections in the water. Tfs!

The pink colour really catches our eye here:)! It's a very good foreground and I like the way you placed it, with the city on the opposite bank. Very good colours!
