It's a great way to wind up the day as the sun was slowly disappearing and I was mesmerized by the magical light while capturing the stillness of that very moment and transmitted a fraction of its pure beauty.
It seemed like nothing was disturbing this peacefulness except for some locals coming home from fishing. It's a fascinating place to lazily sit alone, relax by the bank of Thu Bon river and soak up the calm atmosphere while watching the light show and its tranquil glow.
Exposed on the foreground letting my ever reliable GND filter taking control of the exposure, resulting in the effect that I was aiming for...
Nothing great, it's purely a routine record shot........

Good Morning Abmdsudi,
I am proud to have you as my neighbour, today, for this is a stunning photograph.
You have perfectly captured the quiet mood, at the end of the day, when even the sun is winding down. There is such peace and serenity and the colours are glorious.
Thank you for sharing this,

What a fantastic image, the light makes it in the Bg, w the Fg, boat and with two local people on it, off to sell their wares, offers a splendid focal point.
shreya2000 (2511) 2014-03-30 2:38
A very good image captured by you. I like the colours of sky. The composition is great.
PS : Thanks for your comments on my images. I am learning three eye rule of photography.
Thanks for sharing.
ourania (45344) 2014-03-30 2:52
such a lovely and suggestive daily life scene, an extraordinary ambiance. I understand what you mean in your note but in your photo the "locals coming home from fishing" don't disturb at all, they are so well integrated in the scenery and your composition. I believe that these people, used to this marvelous environment and colours, would never chose to live anywhere else. Your picture has wonderful layout, depth and colours. I like very much the way the warm tones emerge in various parts of the frame. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,
mirosu (16227) 2014-03-30 3:17
Excellent photo arrangement in very nice light and colors. It looks like a beautiful painting.
The framing is spot on - you have positioned the small boat nicely on the right side and the bridge on the left, in this way you have created excellent balance and harmony. The top part is well filled with the beautiful sky.
Very well done.
jurek1951 (42196) 2014-03-30 3:17
a splendid photo with beautiful colours and lights, the composition is very spectacular. Great shot,
PaulVDV (29017) 2014-03-30 3:22
The picture has been taken quite close to the water surface with a beautiful view upwards of that magnificent sky.
The last sunrays colour the sky on the horizon, some clouds above the village and they also highlight beautifully the red roofs.
I like the inclusion of the fisherman and their small boat. It makes this image also a splendid daily life-picture.
Best regards, Paul

Dobar dan, popodne.
Interesantan tekst o mestu i trenutku, sa opisom ...
Lep pogled na ribarski camac sa ribolovcima koji postavljaju mrezu za lov ribe ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, ostrina, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak, lepe boje.
Dobra kompozicija, lepo uhvacen trenutak.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje.
Good afternoon, this afternoon.
An interesting article about place and time, with a description ...
A nice view of a fishing boat with fishermen who set nets for a catch of fish ...
Good time recording, sharpness, contrast and perspective, nice place and shown the moment, pretty colors.
Good composition, well captured moment.
Have a nice evening and night, all the best.

J'aime vraiment beaucoup cette composition. J'aime surtout la gestion de la lumière très difficile ainsi que les belles couleurs qui ressortent parfaitement. un bien beau moment de la vie quotidienne.
Kamilutka (8107) 2014-03-30 7:06
this is magnificent moment at the end of the day and you captured it masterly with all the stunning colors and amazing light. The scene gains a lot from this pretty sky which creates also very special and peaceful atmosphere in here. The boat with two fishermen has been placed very nicely in the frame and the red roofs of the houses on the horizon add more contrasting color.
Well done! TFS
Have a nice Sunday
CLODO (34164) 2014-03-30 7:08
A superb quiet scene with lots of vivid colrs, and enhanced by the cloudy sky, well darken by the use of the filter.
Fis2 (97515) 2014-03-30 7:45
Excellent colors and light.
Photo has climate.
Noel_Byrne (31114) 2014-03-30 9:27
What a palette of colors you captured here. From those in the sky to those in the boat, it really is a rainbow under wonderful light. As always, you composed this scene perfectly, the boat is in the perfect place to create an appealing composition and wonderful depth leading off to the blue boat slightly further away. That sky is magical!
All the best
holmertz (52638) 2014-03-30 10:02
A very nice "routine" shot. The light is magic and the colours, although maybe slightly exaggerated through the filter, are captivating. This is the kind of quiet evening atmosphere that always makes me want to go back to this part of the world.
Schnappilic (9690) 2014-03-30 10:19
An incredible time and atmosphere. I like your studied composition with splendid colors. I like it a lot! Congratulations!
cornejo (42251) 2014-03-30 10:33
Abmdsudi Hello, very good view of this interesting scene of daily life in the river, very well captured in this interesting photo. A beautiful image with good sharpness, depth, light and color. Very good and nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good morning and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
saxo042 (37880) 2014-03-30 12:46
I enjoy the variety of colours in the sky here. The persons in the boat also add a great interest and the colours they provide. A very pleasant picture.
Romano46 (18472) 2014-03-30 13:12
si resta in dubbio se elogiare maggiormente la perfezione della composizione o quella dei colori caldi che dominano il paesaggio.
Una scena di vita colta in maniera perfetta con nitidezza impeccabile.
Ciao e buona settimana
carlo62 (48179) 2014-03-30 14:43
una bellissima scena congelata con una luce fantastica.
Il cielo è bellissimo e i colori sono una meraviglia.
La composizione è eccellente, con la barca con i due uomini perfettamente posizionata.
Corry (4508) 2014-03-30 20:52
Très belle scène à regarder avec un magnifique ciel de fin de journée. Très beau contraste des couleurs. Bien fait.
jjcordier (79297) 2014-03-30 21:13
Une bonne composition, une lumière et un ciel magiques, de belles couleurs....tout pour faire une excellente photo!
mkamionka (36699) 2014-03-31 1:09
amazing ambience indeed. I like very much the colors in the sky with the gradient from yellow to blue and everything topped up with the lovely clouds. People on the boat make a fantastic point to focus on and enhance further the interest.
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2014-03-31 1:27
wow! This is beauty. I like the composition. But I love the management of light here. How accurate it is. Wonder how you exposed those people in boat and keep such a bright and colourfull sky at back. Excellent. Hats off & Namaste.
SnapRJW (31629) 2014-03-31 6:25
Hello Ambdsudi - The light is lovely and the well-saturated colours do not detract from the peacefulness of the scene.
I love the clouds in the sky, they have form and depth and I feel as if I could reach out and touch them.
Didi (60588) 2014-03-31 7:52
Very nice coloured local scene with these particular evening lights with a good deep sky
Kielia (24077) 2014-03-31 8:19
it is the moody sky with these beautiful clouds of a warm summer day that makes this impression attractive. The photographer’s perspective is excellent. Very nice colors and a fantastic atmosphere of the sea. The accompanying note is also nice. My compliments!
adramad (45538) 2014-03-31 11:46
How wonderful scene, with the canoe in the foreground and the two characters, with the treble that gives them the most personal hats, beautiful green shore with abundant vegetation, the sky is a real blast with this range of varied colors, the clouds pictorial , complement each other perfectly.
An image to enjoy, with its beautiful colorful, good lighting and perfect sharpness.
Have a great start to the week.
Silvio1953 (143015) 2014-03-31 13:18
Ciao Abmdsudi, fascinating composition with beautiful fiscing scene, superb sky, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
Cricri (119395) 2014-03-31 23:05
Belle lumière de fin de journée jouant avec les nuages, le pont dans la lumière, des couleurs qui sont très jolies, bon cadrage de la barque avec les personnes, très belle réalisation
rogerl (1616) 2014-04-01 15:32
Abmdsudi, you have managed to capture some truly amazing colors and light in this image. The fading sun on the mens' hats is really pretty. I also really like the red roofs beyond the trees on the riverbank. But the entire shot is truly awesome, from the clouds to the palette change across the sky to the reflections. A wonderful shot. Thanks.
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-04-03 16:07
Beautiful! It almost look like a painting than a photograph. You balance the lighting so well. Good details and awesome colors. Well done, tfs.
macjake (67706) 2014-04-08 1:14
sweet sweet shot with the 18mm focal lenght.
really enjoy these wide open scenes.
the cloud coverage above and combination of orange and blue light really sets this one apart.
the people and the boat are pretty darn good too
so much to enjoy here!
Angshu (56758) 2014-04-09 1:54
Sublime light which gives a fine pastel tone to the entire picture. Somehow the bridge in the BG looks out of place...otherwise this could have been a picture from any time back. The conical hats speaks strongly of the country of this shot. A beautfiul image...so peaceful & so artistic!
josepmarin (58357) 2014-04-14 4:59
the exposure control and the effect of the GND filter create a very powerful image here, because of the colour saturation and the special luminosity of the ensemble.
And I add as well the aesthetical value of the elements, specially the fishermen in their canoe, the beautiful landscape, the splendid clouds on the blue sky, and the calm atmosphere.
It's a wonderful work, my friend.
adores (45329) 2014-04-26 16:07
Once again you catured a good scene, with a good light and a beautiful sky. Seems you always get the best moment of the day:)!
GiovanniG (3270) 2016-03-20 0:42
What an special capture. Your chosen point of view works very well. Your exposure and detail are spot on. You have a wonderful portfolio Abmidsudi. TFS….
