On this day, Pascale patdeph just arrived from France the night before, and before she arrived, we agreed to a fixed date/time to meet, so my friend Alfred alftrek and myself went to meet up with her near waterfront and we went for photography shooting at evening hour. We have agreed to post simultaneously today at the same time but different part of the world to share our sunset shots at Kuching's Sarawak River.
This is Pascale's first visit to Kuching and Sarawak. It rained earlier in the day but by mid afternoon the sun came out brightly and at dusk, the sunset color was just great for her to appreciate the city. This is my sunset capture of the wooden sampan slowly crossing the river while the sunset color was covering the city. I hope the other's 2 posts today will be exciting too. I hope Pascale enjoyed her trip and she would return one day. Thank you for viewing. Cheers, bill

I was afraid to have problem to upload on TE,like this last days,but everything was OK!It's funny to see that we have obtained a very different sky,but yours is also very beautiful!I think that your boat has a better place than mine,but we have the same layers on the mountains,I like this very much!To remind the nice evening with you!Thaanks again!

Trés jolie composition, magnifique couleurs du ciel et ses reflets, un joli graphisme qui ce dessine a l'horizon ainsi que le bateau sur l'avant de l'image, bravo
Good day for you
npecanhuk (62452) 2008-08-18 6:27
This photo is so beautiful!
The sky is superb with its colors, then we have the silhouettes of mountains, vegetation, houses and the boat! To end up, the colors of the sky are reflected on the surface of the water: a real pleasure to look at it!
TFS - Congratulations!
belido (19934) 2008-08-18 6:33
I've just written some words on Pascale's post and I had to check yours. Both of you brought stunning images. A pleasant seen, as I said to her. Great job!

You could not dream of a more spectacular sky to celebrate a meeting, glad to see you had fun together and can show us nice images like this one, the boat is perfectly places n this landscape dominated by those strong sunset colors, excellent !
With friendly greetings from France, JY
jonathan_hart (21274) 2008-08-18 8:04
quite fine exposure, more details visible in the contrasted line of land than Pascale's shot, it was surely a wonderful sunset, good viewpoint
alftrek (3270) 2008-08-18 8:09
Excellent clarity from a handheld shot at 1/25 and f/5. I like the position of the boat with the boatman in action clearly visible, and the golden trail behind. A good photo.
MarianneS (15338) 2008-08-18 8:14
I am coming from Pascale's post and yours is superb too.
Two photos, same POV but still different results.
Both are as beautiful as the other one.
DKarine (3903) 2008-08-18 8:15
Coming from Pascale and come to look at your version. Colors are different, but so magnificent as her intense red. I like the different capital which stand out either against an appearance of mist, or in Chinese shade.
ban_man (528) 2008-08-18 8:47
I'll not say much. You've got a lot of adjectives. Only I'll say it's one of my favorite shot.
Butterflyka (518) 2008-08-18 8:56
Incredible picture with good POV and well composed.
Wonderful colors of the sky.
Good light management and sharpness.
Gerrit (45745) 2008-08-18 9:04
beautiful sunset and landscape.Excellent work, beautiful \colors and outstanding composition,
PaulVDV (21089) 2008-08-18 9:58
Splendid sunset picture with unbelievable beautiful sky and water. Nice with the silhouette of the boat.
Best regards, Paul
dkeus31 (27735) 2008-08-18 10:52
this one is also very nice, wow, the colors!
siamesa (27731) 2008-08-18 11:15
Ilike very much these effect in pictures. Warms and very beautiful tones that makes a picture something magic. TFS.
besnard (52443) 2008-08-18 11:28
Un superbe cliché et une belle rencontre entre amis de TE je présume. Les couleurs sont incroyables, c'est de l'excellent travail.
Je te souhaite une bonne soirée.
stego (23550) 2008-08-18 12:53
Interesting idea... Posting at the same hour shots of the same place shot taken the same hour. Not surprisingly, each of the shots is much more different than what some would expect to be. On everyone of them we can appreciate the gorgeous and unique hues of the sky, reflected on the water and the picturesque skyline profile. I find that the boat contributes much to the peaceful atmosphere that fills the image and also gives a very nice balance to the compo.
A great and beautiful work!
dareco (17134) 2008-08-18 13:24
It's fun to see the different pictures of this. This is really gorgeous! I love these lights and reflections. Another picture convincing me that I must visit your country. TFS and have a happy day!
cfreire (11741) 2008-08-18 13:45
Wonderful shot with warm nice colors. The lights sunset reflections on the water are marvelous. Excellent composition that seems a painting. Well done. Regards, Consuelo
Waylim (25172) 2008-08-18 14:28
Beautiful layer of landscape in this absolutely stunning sunset, A magical hour of the day. Great composition, all element is in the right place. Great detail and sharpness. Color is brilliant and rich in tone. Just simply bueatiful. Thanks for you comment on my Quechuan Doll, I could have crop it many different ways. I like to show all of her and unfortunately sometime when opportunity was there you panic, you just shot as you lift up your camera without going through much thought process. I ended up nearly cut her toe, but I really like to show the shoes that was made of old car tire.
Deepforest (9260) 2008-08-18 14:30
beautiful composition in warm colours... fantastic sunset. I love composition with a boat in the foreground and hills in the background. Colours of the sky are really impressive. Well done.
adamchewts01 (862) 2008-08-18 17:50
Despite how beautiful is the photo and it sharpness, the meaning behind this photo is definitely memorable. Very good job Bill. Very meaningful event.

All the sunset photos of Malaysia are splendid like this one.
The harmony of the colors is fantastic.
Congrats and have a nice week,
John_F_Kennedy (42048) 2008-08-19 1:10
Great red and orange colours, impressive sky and lighting. Well done.
pierrefonds (55664) 2008-08-19 3:34
The sunset is giving nice colors to the sky, to the sea and a set of shadows to the rest of the photo. The presence of the boat and of the person has an effect of scale. The point of view is giving depth to the picture. The subject is well frame. Have a nice day.
Gregtom (7167) 2008-08-19 3:45
You really had a fantastic weather conditions to catch this scene! Beautiful colors and shapes of the clouds. Nice contrast and silhouetted mountains in the background. Good job!
hatti52 (12786) 2008-08-19 3:54

Charo (51210) 2008-08-19 6:43
Beautiful composition caught in a very special moment. The colors are fantastic clouds that make it a very attractive picture.
Have a nice day.
gary91 (15348) 2008-08-19 15:23
What an incredible spectacle you offered Pascale for her first day with you... Pascale's view is red, yours is more on the yellow... has it something to do with your respective brand ;-)
A marvelous image and I like the nice place you gave to the boat.
Have a nice day.
Best regards, Christian
skippy007 (12510) 2008-08-19 22:07
Hello Bill, I've looked at the three sunsets, all different & all very beautiful in their own right, The sampan looks great & in a good spot, the colours of the sky & water, silhouette & detail are superb but above all I like your motive the most.
Excellent work, lovely note.
chawax (18871) 2008-08-20 3:16
A lot of very nice pictures in your gallery ! I love this one a lot. The sky is fantastic with this red clouds and the composition is very well done with the boat in the foreground and the shadows of the mountains.

aadilj (18102) 2008-08-24 22:37
This one truly amazed me for a long time as I looked at the etxtures and colours. The hues are fabulous and very well nuanced and controlled. great work indeed.
jusninasirun (17160) 2008-08-26 6:47
Hello Bill. I have seen both your picture and pascale's. She was right about the different colored sky and yet both of you have excellent image with certain vibrancy in your own interpretation. Fantastic view with the boat placed well heading for home. Well done on a wonderful idea. Best regards. Jusni
