1) History of Banjar Hot Spring
This hot wellspring source is predictably built since of hundreds of year ago and since the Japanese colonize the Indonesia, this place has developed into three pools to relocate the water for taking a bath. The Japanese had also developed its military officer resort close to this area. Having bathing in the heat water containing the brimstone, it will be able to heal the skin disease. This public bath which is built by Japanese now is exploited by public society. Beside of that, now this place is opened for tourist who can use this bathing place to swim in hot pool and also enjoy the water fall. Enjoying the hot water fall, we can feel like squeezing, especially at pool equipped by the douche with the high about 3.5 meters, so that can make the body refresh and relaxation.

The flowers, the trees are framing well the pools. The presence of the persons has an effect of scale. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the hot springs. The afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

this seemingly chaotic scene was very well seen and captured! you chose a very good composition, with these two diagonal lines naturally "pointing" to the background scene. A picturesque and quite an "exotic" view for me! :))
warmest greetings from very heated smoky Moscow,
