Hi friends in TL,

Thank you Bill, Alfred and Jong! The trip to Kuching was memorable because of the hospitality of these Trek members.

This shot was taken from my first sunset in Kuching. My first outing with them started just after 5:30am. This shot was taken after a short boat ride across the river. I met Bill and Alfred the evening before and my first encounter with Jong, who have produced superb macros in TL.

Hope to see you all in Kedah :-)

Nice peaceful deep blue.....

The gradient through the lower part of the frame is excellent - and the crisp detail and boosted saturation in the upper part is great too! Nice capture.

hello Jusni

After some exchanges of emails since last year, finally your trip was successful and we had the opportunity to rub shoulders. It has been my great pleasure to meet you and family here, and that has been one of the best benefits of photography sharing.

You were the winner of the day's trip because in your Lowepro bag sat almost all the needed accessories and lenses, including this SWA that you had been using almost constantly. Seldom have I seen SWA being used for vertical on riverscape like this but somehow it produces a great view of the calm still water reflection. I hope the early morning excursion bears some good fruits in your memory cards.

Because of the causeway built further downstream, you were able to see this calm water in this river and enjoy reflection on photography.

I like the cool atmosphere of this shot. Great work!

tfs, bill

Hi Jusni

Really impressive. A dramatic allocation of space for the fg that gradually takes the eyes to the boats. Nice strong colors and very sharp

Have a good day and TFS

Hi Jusni

I like the tonal gradation from light to dark in the tranquil mirror like water, that also gives superb reflections. Good colour & sharpness. Indah sekali!

Salam jusni,
wow this is a festival of colours. the pink boats sit perfectly in the soft blue water that gradually becoming more dense and rich.
The calmness well depicted and the natural framing by the tree is pleasant enough to make your shot memorable, as much as your memories in Kuching.
Well done and well presented in excellent colours.

Hi Jusni,
What a wonderful photo!
Superb deep blue shadows in foreground enhancing so well the luminous top part of the image. The boats and their reflections on the river are so crispy and sharp. Excellent management of this backlit!
Professionally done! Annie
