Hello friends in TL,

Langkawi is a popular spot for ecotourism. Langkawi situated just off the northwestern coast of Peninsular Malaysia comprises a group of 104 tropical islands during the low tides and 99 Island during the high tides. The main island Langkawi, is 47. 848 Hectare followed by Pulau Dayang Bunting and Pulau Tuba while some of the others appear to be mere dots in the emerald green ocean when viewed from the air.

In Langkawi a nature adventure had a true-blue naturalist with Langkawi’s jungles, mangroves and wildlife. Some people think the beauty of Langkawi lies in its pristine beaches. Others reckon that the edge Langkawi has over places like Bali and Phuket is its jungle and wildlife. Regards.

Hi Jusni!
Very nice place there. Colors are just beautiful!

Have a nice day!


Hi Jusni,

Lovely land..
Beautifull presentation.


Hey friend

I love the saturation and the light in this shot, it hits your usual high standard and is quite breathtaking.

I feel uneasy about one thing; it looks as though the shot is tilted. I've tried a WS to see if it looks better with a small rotation, and I think it does.

Hi Jusni, I do like your colours here. And what a beautiful scene.
But I feel your photo is tilted to the left - Yes, I now see Rew's workshop - he's fixed it.
It looks so calm and leaceful.

Beautiful composition my friend.

Good morning Jusni,
Drenched colour! Wonderful!
Well captured POV from the boat.
Another good one Jusni.

Assalamualaikum Jusni,

spotting the thumbnail instantly i thought this is a re-post of this but it proves me wrong for this is a different yacht & at a different position, although the cove looks like the entrance.

the colours here is much better, so much so i don't have to practice with a WS...:)

TFS & Selamat bersantai di hujung minggu.

Thanks for viewing my Clothed & Unclothed

Hi Jusni

A marvellous blue sky, with the white yacht well placed in the frame. Superb contrast & sharpness. Tfs!

Une jolie crique de rêve.
Bonne journée.

Hi Jusni,
The blue sky is mighty impressive in projecting this relaxed scene. I wish I were there. Gorgeous. Greetings! Danilo

Hello Jusni,

I wouldn't mind being on board that sailboat, cruising around Malaysian waters!
Or maybe is what I hear about pirates true, hehehe...
Lovely colours and a fine atmosphere, well conveyed!

hi Jusni

Very scenic place nicely captured to have good contrast and saturation from your CPL, and well composed view. The sailboat at FG really adds feature to this shot.

tfs, bill

Hola Jusni,
realmente bonita esta foto,
agradable trabajo y buenos colores y pov,

Hi Jusni,

Great shot! Angle of light for this shot is just right. Composition is spot on. I notice that you used a very quick shutter for this photo at ISO200. It must have resulted in a slightly darker image production originally? Great PP work. Very effective.



Hello Jusni,
great shot, excellent composition and point of view,
beautiful colors and good contrast, superb
sharpness, wonderful clarity and very good depth
of field, well done.

Hello Jusni

Beautiful visual
I am amazed with the clear and strong colors.
a wonderful definition in this scenery.
Fantastic sail. Good captures!
Congratulations, amazed with so much beauty!


Assalamualaikum Jusni,
I guess the shape of the foliage had given an impression that this shot was a bit tilted. But it doesn't do much harm to the beauty of, almost every elements in this composition - for the well captured and treated colors, the boats, the water and reflection, and... almost clean blue sky. Impressive clarity as well.

I am having a problem when doing a file resizing/compression for my shots that has a detailed foliage. Does it happen to you, and what is your solution?


A fine view from Langkawi Jusni. Colours and sdetails are great.
TFS and cheers,
