Hello friends in TN.
I am posting another photo along the Sarawak River. You can see here a few passengers were waiting for the Tambang boat to get across after work.
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.
The tambangs of Kuching
Thanks for viewing!

Bonjour, cher Jusni,
Voilà tout l'intérêt du site : apprendre par l'image.
Outre la beauté de ce moment, où le disque d'or s'enfonce à l'horizon et va éclairer une autre partie de la planète, nous apprécions ce joli instantané.

Une très belle heure de la journée. Les personnages en ombres chinoises ajoutent beaucoup d'effets à ce coucher de soleil.

Un beau moment capturer des couleurs du coucher du soleil avec l'embarcation et les personnes en silhouettes

A great capture for sure! The silhouettes are just perfect! I like their poses as they are looking and waiting for the boat to come. Then, the sunset is really great, with really good colours!

A beautifully mellow shot and composition with lively silhouetted figs. The light is amazing and works its magic on the surface of the water and the boats making them glow so attractively with adequate details in shadow areas. Executed perfectly and a really glorious presentation. Congrats

Salam Dear Friend Jusni
Very nice captured lovely warm color of sunset reflected in river and striking silhouettes of mountains and people waiting for boats to return their homes after work. Good presentation with good perspective and succesful light management to get sharpness,clarity and natural saturated colors.
Thanks and warm respects

The sunset scene is effectively captured here. Like the silhouette of the mountains & the people in the FG. The colour hues on the sky & those reflected on the water is beautiful!
