This is the annual boat race in Kuching-Sarawak. The kalao bird is the symbol of the state of Sarawak, quite an evidence there...
Kuching means cat in bahasa melayu, however I've seen more kalaos and rats than cats around, who ate who?

Interesting picture and Note.
I think this one would be better if shot from a lower angle or more DOF (and without the yellow hat guy).

Very nice shot...I like the framing and the perspective...Maybe a smaller aperture could help better in deeper DOF but i don't know if the light was enough...Also i agree with Bob about the guy...In any case i like it...:-)

Your eyes worked well and you made a very nice shot!
As Bob & george already said, it's a bit a pity about the yellow hatted guy...

Luko, wonderful composition as usual - you have this quality and nobody can take it from you. Although b/w is your field, you are good at color too.
