This is a local fishing boat in Kuala Perlis,Perlis.
This boat is used for coastal fishing activities such as netting the shrimps, and trolling. Mostly the fisherman did their activities within one day. In the evening they came back and sell their catch.
Then tey tied up their boats to the tree or pole, near to their houses.
when the tide is low you can go near the boat and enjoy the little sandy beach.

Same boats in Thailand,with extreme noisy engines.
Good POV and I like the pespective here.Great colors and contrast and I like the stormy sky.
macjake (52202) 2010-05-15 22:23
you've captured a shot that i have yet to capture myself..very jealous.
the bow of the boat is almost 3D like, as its coming straight at the viewer.
the colours are tremendously bright and vivid.
love the overall atmosphere and ambience.

Très bon POV, la perspective du bateau de couleurs, un très beau contraste avec le ciel gris, très belle image

l'effet grand angle est ici presque maximum, cela donne beaucoup d'effilement à cette embarcation très colorés.
J'aime l'ambiance de ces lumières et du ciel chargé.

Very good use of the wide lens to present an interesting perspective on this traditional fishing boat.
Good idea too to use the flash to illuminate the foreground.

A good dynamic angle to this local fishing boat, not much light at this time of the day but good vibrance for its 3 main colors
Have a nice day JY

Wonderful colourful boats on the beach.The composition, in this shot from interesting perspective , is very nice.
pierrefonds (54978) 2010-05-16 4:28
The point of view is taking my eyes toward the horizon which is giving depth to the composition. Its also showing the details and colors of the local fishing boat. The cloudy sky is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.
Urs (14082) 2010-05-16 5:49
I saw the boat and knew that it looks familiar to me, then I read your note, so I know the reason it is from Kuala Perlis. Nice sunset shot with the clouds like a window above the boat. Excellent use of flash. well done
Thanks for your critique of my Penang Road shot. Actually I have seen a number of well maintained Malay houses as well. I will upload later some pix of them as well.
subhendu_bagchi (25258) 2010-05-17 2:00
nice composition with this boat. At first sight it seems like the rainbow. Very well managed light and superb depth. Sky is also excellent. Very well done. Tfs.
Waylim (25072) 2010-05-17 14:25
Great POV, I like very much the perspective here, the foreshorten view of the boat really adds great imact, I feel like I might just bump into it if not careful. Great colors rich and deep tone and good contrast, the letters are vivid and stands out well. Dramatic sunset light with nice clouds. Great composition. A mong your best shots.
vizugonesailing (338) 2010-05-19 4:09
What a beautiful scene and a good idea to use the flash and obtain perfect details and colours of the boat.
The perspective offered by the composition is superb and after looking at the main subject we enter deep to enjoy the nice sky.
These little boats are very seaworthy and I see them often, even many miles offshore.
Very good photography, congratulations.

Amazing boat. Wonderful beach and seascape. Superb colors. Excellent take.

Hi dear Foozi,
very impressive scene with lonely colored boats under the dramatic sky..a great light and sharpness..also excellent depth with good view angle..superb POV..tfs
ManuMay (34367) 2010-05-20 7:04
A great moment of light and a very good point of view choosen, deserving a great composition and angle to the boat view, the light on the scene is really amazing and the contasrs of the sand and the sky has a very good play of colour tonescontrasting against bot tones, really a very good capture...very well conceived and manged!! A masterwork!
Have a nice day...

Hello Foozi! Amazing boat. Ideal point of view, perfect capture, wonderful composition. Good contrast and sharpness, very good focus. Nice lightness and brightness. Perfect saturation. Original work. Splendid effect. Good luck!
PaulVDV (20477) 2010-05-24 10:21
A beautiful, clear picture with an excellent sharpness. I like the textures of the wood of the boat and also of the thick grains of sand on the beach.
Behind the boat a great view to the horizon with another coastline, probably of an island.
Best regards, Paul
batalay (34761) 2010-08-22 8:23
This is a gorgeous shot, the light management revealing the glistening sand, the waves rolling in gently, and especially the colors. First rate all the way. There is a slight tilt in the sea (the left side has to be raised slightly) but the merits far outweigh any concerns about the photo.
fotka (3271) 2010-08-31 10:39
It is an excellent view of the boat in a long perspective. The three colors of the boat strongly dominate your photo. The contrast between colorful boat and the gray sky is an impressive.
josepmarin (57511) 2010-11-18 0:13
The prow of this traditional fishing boat seems to go out of the photo, in an image with a great 3D sensation and a very deep perspective.
The framing is very effective, the luminosity of the photo is good due to the use of the flash, and the colors are very vivid and natural.
In spite of a slight tilt on the horizon, the photo is magnificent. I like.
Hormon_Manyer (384) 2010-11-20 11:47
Hi again MF,
Very interesting view with the colorful boat and the stormy sky. Beautiful contrast. Everything is top notch except for the following things (by my opinion):
- horizon isn't totally straight
- there's sensor dust on both sides of the pic, closed to the edge.
Otherwise everything's OK, but these minor mistakes vexed my sensitive eyes. However, a good shot. Tfs.
Have a nice weekend, best regards, László
iainsp (2626) 2010-11-23 7:59
Outstanding PoV and a great DoF to keep all the important elements of your frame in clear focus. The bright colours of the boat work very well framed agains the ore subdued colours of a cloudy sunset. Lovely work, thank you, Iain
sacavem (18610) 2010-12-02 13:27
Good shot and good work to capture this image.
Excellent composition, very nice colors. Amazing, great pov.

danos (83083) 2010-12-05 2:52
spectacular the use of the super wide lens with the result to be fascinating.I like this superb POV of the fishing boat making the image very effective.I love the vivid colours as the clarity of the scene.Well done.
sabyasachi1212 (19771) 2010-12-09 1:56
This one looks good. Strong colours. the sky looks pretty dramatic as well.
With Greetings from India
kiasari (62) 2010-12-17 23:25
You chose a good POV to take this ultra wide angle shot. A nice photo with a well managed framing and superb colors. Well done!
kiks (11749) 2011-01-25 4:37
well done this composition. I like the result of choosing a position very near the boat creating such a long boat. Well handeld light and the flash did a good job here,
fabianoleite (9371) 2011-03-07 6:24
Wonderful perspective of the boat, I liked the enlarged front, and the dark lighting makes it wonderful, too. Congratulations!
Robert1969 (6858) 2011-05-13 0:27
The great point of view and composition creates a lots of depth ( it looks almost 3D) and the great light makes the colors beautiful and creates a lots of details (no hard shadows).
A small tip: watch out for the horizon, this is not quite right.
kato (11630) 2012-04-08 6:35
You're capturing well this coast scape by a good composition and very excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see colorful fishing boat and calm sea. And, the sky dyed to sunset slightly draws out an additional good effect.
Tigerlily (2941) 2012-04-18 1:37
The colour of the image is beautiful.. well exposed light, nice POV.
jimkil (1720) 2012-04-18 1:39
I hope you are well? Love the angle you have shot here, nearly straight down the boat, excellent strong colours against a subtle mood. Well done on this image
