[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I came back from visiting family members and saw the big red ball is about to set. I have to cross the road to get to the side to properly shoot the setting sun. It went so fast, only after 5 shots the sun completely hidden behind the hill.
This hill is the Kodiang limestone hill.

Ya Foozi,
Assalamualia kum,
Good to see the limestone hill there and it is covered with natural plants hence we have much dry mountains here, that is due to low rain.
It is shot very beautiful, very attractive and well composed.
Regards, TFS.

Hi Foozi,

Great shot of the setting sun slipping behind the hill. Yes, the sun certainly goes quickly when it gets to that point. The back lighting of the hill is terrific. I'm wondering what the small lighter coloured spot is below and to the left of the sun. Any ideas? I know with lighting like that, there can be all sorts of reflections. In any case, it's certainly an interesting capture. TFS.


Hello Foozi
Very good sunset shot, the bright and rund sun looks out very nicely behind the black shapes of the trees
beautiful red sky and wonderful composition
Have a great WE

Hello Foozi,
Interesting image that you ofert us.
A beautiful landscape. Details and beautiful contrasts.
Many regards,

Bonjour Foozi,
Très bonne maitrise de la lumière restituant parfaitement l'ambiance particulière de ce moment de la journée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Dear Foozi!

I have missed this beatiful sunset picture. I like it very much. The horizon line is well designed and contrasts nicely with the red sky. It's a romantic and emotional picture.

Kind regards


Hi Foozi. A fine image showing one of the many faces of glorious sunsets seen in Malaysia, both west and in Sabah too. Good composition and exciting colours.TFS. Murray.

Hi Foozi,

The sunset is giving nice colors to the sky and a set of shadows to the trees. It is well framed. The oint of view is sending my eyes toward the trees which is giving depth to the composition. Well done, have a nice day.
