Each time I return to my hometown with my camera, I must visit this place at the Rajang Riverfront for jogging and just walking around, waiting for sunset and evening breeze. Because of the 800m width of the river, sufficient open space is provided on the river for viewing the clouds. Although this side of Igan River has very little boat traffic for photography subject, it is still a good spot to spend the 'happy hour'.

Now I can say these :- You have taught me about
.how to shoot better
.how to present better
.how to share better
.how to correct my weaknesses
.how to critique you back
.how to appreciate your photos
.and at the same time feel good about my own photos

Thank you for your sharing this 1 year on TL with me.

Very strong silhouettes here, but I love most of all the colours in the sky slowly getting from warm orange to blue in the top half.

Well done on the first year Bill. Well composed with good colour and excellent silhouettes. I think Hans may need spectacles, I can see some whiteness along the roofline of the structure,

Hello Bill! Beautiful sunrise...colours, picture. Congratulations. Greetings. Barbara

hello Bill,

A truly stunning shot and certainly worthy of your celebration.
The colours in the sky look like moulten lava and take on an even richer tone in the water. The silhouetted building is interesting and really draws attention with the tiny perforations in the shadows.
Very well composed using the rule of thirds.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
