Hello friends in TL,

A sunset shot of Kuah, Langkawi with the view of Pulau Dayang Bunting.

Pulau Dayang Bunting, or the Isle of the Pregnant Maiden, is the second largest island in the archipelago. The island gets its name from a legend that surrounds the freshwater lake, Tasik Dayang Bunting (Lake of the Pregnant Maiden) The large lake, set in tranquil surroundings is suitable for swimming. Its waters are also said to possess magical powers that will enable barren women to bear children if they drink water from the lake.

Thanks for viewing!

WoW Jusni
What a shot! Those colors and mood are incredible.
Really great

Hi Jusni,
I like the view over the water toward the mountains and setting sun. But, I do feel that the entire photo is a little dark. Have you tried to open up the shadows? The bright lights on the left are also a little distracting. Human eyes are atrackted to contrast and will focus on the lighter areas.

Selamat Paki dear Jusni.
Yeh.. Island of the Pregnant Maiden.
Thats why I didn't go to it.
Having two children is more than enough. haha
Both grown up, but still giving me headache, time by time, sniff...
Okay, next time when in Langkawi, than.
Have to see this beautiful view with my own eyes.
Greetings from Jan

Hi, Jusni!

Wonderful sunset shot with excellent composition, saturation and lights.


Hi Jusni,
At first I thought this might be under-exposed but upon opening realized this is jsut exposed perfectly. Great balance and exposure, well done!

HI Jusni
Colorful and beautiful sunset, the silhouette of the mountains a plus and the odd little light showing signs of life makes it a good shot.

Hi Jusni,

Very good control of light and shadow. Colours in the sky is incredible. Thanks for sharing.
