Hello friends in TE.
Kuching is a city that grew up around the Sarawak River, which has led to the city having one of the most unusual public transport services in Malaysia - the tambangs.
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 image shows passangers were getting on the Tambang Boat.

A good capture of these people mounting the tambang. I like the point of view with the boat and the building providing additional interest for the composition. The image is pleasantly lit and has good colours and sharpness.

J'aime beaucoup le point de vue presque au niveau de l'eau qui donne une impression cinématographique à la composition. La forte luminosité est bien gérée.

nice the view as the presentation of the place with the Tambang to be moored on the waterfront and the passangers to get in it.I like the beauty of the place as the clarity and the well light management.

l'arbre suit le sommet du toit et lui fait comme une belle coiffure superbe vue avec ces bateaux, cette végétation cadrage parfait.
Bravo et amitié

your low point of view is very effective and has given an elegant and interesting composition, very well enclosed in a square frame. We get a good idea of this little harbour and of the boats from different perspectives. I like very much the subtlety and good definition of the colours in such a strong light. The richer colour is excellently placed in the frame and the bright white tones are well moderated without hiding the hues next to them. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

The POV is well chosen and the elements of interest are well placed in the image. The strong light has been well managed to give good colors and sharpness.

This is a wonderful calming and gentle daily life shot, the eyecatching tambang is placed perfectly within the frame as a strong focal while we get to enjoy its suroundings. I love the viewpoint, its low shooting angle works really well. The lighting, colors, water ripples and reflection do convey a mood of peace. Very well done shot, TFS.

Good composition and good PP! You captured not just the boat, but also the people and a nice background. The boats seem really nice:)! Maybe it's just a pitty we don't have a better view from the inside, but it's surely good when the heavy rain falls:)!
