Perhaps this picture should be labelled as" decisive moment" because this incredible light was there for a few minutes only and few boats crossed the Chao Phraya river at the appropriate place and moment. Actually I had prepared myself in order to be there before sunset time, and to watch from the opposite side of the great Wat Arun temple,but I found myself in a place which came out to be a private house. I thought I was on the Chao Phraya riverside open to the public but I was wrong and the owner chased me away. Perhaps I looked too important with my tripod. Eventually I found another corner before the light was gone.

A great shot and composition, taken at the right moment with the boat in the foreground, to give it more depth and make it more interesting! Love the colours and patterns of the clouds in the sky! I also like that you over-exposed the temple so that you can still see some details! I've tried myself to take sunset pictures of Wat Arun, but didn't succed as well as you did! Keep up the good work! plahgat

As usual, very good composition and, in this case, also a great light.

A lovely silhouetted piece, Izzet. Fine capture of the iconic buildings and structures, well enhanced by the special glowing light that you found in the sky. Fine inclusion of the foreground boat in a good place to balance the total.

Great shot! I love the silhouette of the temple and the boat, the colors of the sky, but especially the effect of the clouds. Regards, Yvonne

Another magnific counter-light (when I was there the day was awful! snif, snif). Great composition and spectacular colours. Really mystic atmosphere.

I'm with you. It's that magic moment when every shadow, every color and every shape is in the right place. Congratulations again for catch it.
