Fine panoramic shot, an interesting composition with low clouds. Excellent colours and details!
But this place looks not for tourists, I think.

Hi Ally. Both you and I have shots of Malaysia on the same page. I do like the POV here and the atmosphere. Reminds me a little of Cameron Highlands.No minarets in sight? Regards. Klaudio.

Nabalu I have never seen, but I remember that many hamlets below the Mount Kinabalu have a similar topography. Living below the clouds is good to get fresh and not familiar vegies. I really liked the different vegetables available there. Your light and contrast management has produced vivid colors, fine sharpness and perfect DOF due to the clouds or fog at the top of the picture. Well done

bellissimo... che scatto...
Mi piace il verde della collina con tutte le casette sparse qua è là.
La nuvola che sta sopra tutto è la cieligina sulla torta, bravissima.

Hello Ally! Excellent landscape, wonderful country, amazing village. Beautiful sky and clouds. Good long perspective. Very good exposure. Great effect. Well done!
pauloog (11751) 2009-09-01 0:55
Good to omit the sky and concentrate on the village and the forest to create an atmosphere of human life enclosed by nature. The clouds add a fine contrast and enhance the impression of a damp cloudy environment.

The low clouds have a special effect on the scenery. The point of view is allowing us to see the details and colors of the village. The trees are framing well the houses of the village. There is a good contrast betweens the colors. Have a nice day.

The abundant vegetation indicates that the area receives abundant precipitations. The clouds are an attractive element of the photograph. The mountainous landscape is well described by this light diving. The realization is pleasant to see. Cheer.
Have a nice day

belido (19934) 2009-09-01 17:03
very good shot. It's nice to see this hidden village surrounded by great nature. I like your play with the layers and the inclusion of the low clouds on the top. Well done!
pablominto (53746) 2009-09-01 23:33
This is an interesting view of the village in the hills!
The atmosphere is well recorded and the rain forest is basically intact, that is good since the landscape shows some signs that landslides may happen...
The scene is well framed with vivid colours and good details!
Kielia (24077) 2009-09-02 11:44
very fascinating place and an excellent capture that shows the settlement from a very well working POV. And a very appropriate title! An impression in the best spirit of TE!
adramad (45582) 2009-09-02 13:42
Impressive panoramic of this green mountain splashed with houses in his maxim height, exuberant vegetation and nice effect that of the clouds that seem to be unhooked on the mountains. Very good POV in this capture.
buscape (6219) 2009-09-02 17:23
beautiful view to this inhabited mountain. I like the scattered huts in all that green vegetation. The low clouds create a very special atmosphere to the scene. Interesting place.
Disabled_A (0) 2009-09-02 23:24
I wonder how it is - to live under clouds in such a place like this... very GREEN place, but it looks rather separated from the world.. maybe I am wrong :)
I like the way you composed this very "green" view: with a bit of the clouds hovering above the scattered houses. A picturesque scene, even despite the absence of any bright - red or yellow or orange - colours!
Very best wishes,

A detailed photo giving us an idea of the landscape in the Kinabalu area. This is relevant to me as I would like to visit this area in the future - and trek to the top of the mountain. And so tfs, Marlene
lucasgalodoido (22304) 2009-09-03 19:59
interesting view of the contructions on the mountain, very similar to Brasil. I like of the all green vegetation too. Great job, my friend.
foozi (7101) 2009-09-04 19:13
very exciting panorama shot. The white scattered houses are very graphical and it adds impact to your shot.
Lush green and clouds are the impact here.
Charo (51212) 2009-09-06 17:59
The scenery is fantastic and a great atmosphere, feel the humidity.
I really like these little houses scattered throughout the green hill.
Excellent perspective and detail.
jmdias (64410) 2009-09-07 8:10
interesting view mixing forest and village, that strip of mist in the upper side is nice and I liked the soft light and sharpness, an informative and beautiful work
s_lush (16134) 2009-09-09 4:02
The place in your shot is of the kind which I always look for in my travels. I like so wooded and green mountains. Towns and villages in such places look nicely, like this picturesque Malaysian town. In addition the low clouds give to the picture special romantic mood. The photographic quality is very high, allowing seeing all details. Excellent job!

I have missed a lot of your wonderful posts. This is just dreamy with the low lying cloud above the settlement. Superb framing and thanks for sharing.
