[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The banks of the mighty Mekong River are the most enjoyable spot to take sunsets and a very popular with the local people. In dry season you'll be able to walk to the large sand bars which stretch in different locations in the Vientiane area, the closest one is under the Mekong promenade.

Nice place to sit in the sand and watch the last sun rays. Some fishermen would still try to catch fish and some kids will be still swimming while youngsters and others will be taking a romantic walk in the sand, or you could even actually see Laotians playing soccer on the sand bed!

Here's what I caught with glimpse of Thailand in the distant shore....

Hello Abmdsudi,
A delightfully atmospheric composition with these nicely rendered dusky pink tones. Foreground interest is intensified by an interesting array of differently shaped silhouettes.

Bonjour Abmdsudi,

J'ai eu l'occasion de faire une petite croisière sur ce fleuve mythique et j'aurais beaucoup apprécié le faire à cette heure du jour. C'est tout simplement superbe.

Dobro vece.
Interesantan pogled i trenutak, dobar tekst ...
Lepo pokazano, dobra perspektiva i kontrast, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak.
Lepo mesto na obali velike i mocne reke, lep refleks na vodi i zalazak sunca.
Zelim vam lepu i mirnu noc, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.

Ciao Abmdsudi
questa foto sembra un'antica pittura cinese.
Bellissimo minimalismo, fantastica atmosfera.

Hello Abmdsudi,
An interesting view of the mighty Mekong River.
Nice composition with good sharpness and beautiful colors.
Good work

Hi dear Abmdsudi YTH

Wow so nostalgic image. I remind that I also saw this fantatsic from same place 13 years ago and 10 years ago. Weak sunset light and shades are so dramatic. The end of one day is full of poets, great shots as usual.

All the best and have a good day! Takero

Hello Abmdsudi
A beautiful photo with an excellent informative story. You have to look closely at the beautiful silhouettes on the photo to see how richly detailed this photo is.
Excellent work
Have a nice day. Groet Rob

Ciao Abmdsudi, fascinating sunset, fantastic light, magic atmosphere and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi, Abmdsudi.
A wonderful view of this wide river, the sand bank and the line of its banks create a beautiful contrast with that soft pink tone that the sunset prints to the sky and water.
A magnificent range of colors, in some tones, very attractive.
Good management of brightness and sharpness.
Very well done. I love.
Have a great day.
Very best regards.

Hello Abmdsudi,

I like the silhouettes and soft pastel sunset colours. Impeccable sharpness and people in canoes and on the sandbank enliven the scene. Tfs!
