Excellent series , i thoroughly enjoyed it ! made me feel warm even though i'm freezing now. Oh yeah , i have to mention the last one with the bottle opener .. I love the atmosphere in that shot, the framing with the tree and the little color from the bottles .. lovely ..

and the other shots are the one in the fishing village ..

thanks for sharing and brightening up my day !

Nice colour.

Like the 1st one best.

Question: Why is most of the pic in portraits layout? Any reason?

I think if you place anything against the sunset, you'll get about the same monotonous pictures like these.

Thanks everyone, for your kind compliments... :)

Ordinaryless - these shots were taken with the Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 EX APO HSM lens on my EOS 300D. PS was used to add a bit of contrast and USM, that's all.

Binbeto - Yup, many of my sunset shots were done in portrait, rather than landscape. Two reasons:
(i) Kuta beach was too crowded with people. I would have too many distracting stuff on either sides if I did landscape.
(ii) The subjects in the foreground are not too far away from me (abt 5-8 m away), so I would not capture enough of the setting sun background if I did landscape. Also, I intended to show some color gradient of the sky by doing portrait.

Minoxman - Thanks for your comments. Frankly, I've not considered that before. I appreciate that cos' I shall pay more attention to such details in future. Thanks again :)

hmm okie okie. sorry guys, maybe i just felt that JW's pics are good and calling them 'monotonous' is unfair to him. hmm.
