Another 'speeding bus over a bumpy road' shot. Taken at 1/500 th or 1/1000 th of second, to freeze blur, as much as possible. No time to compose perfectly.
The rice paddies are tripping down the hillside, to the lake, which is a volcanic caldera, within a dormant volcano.

hi chris, what a fantastic mountainscape; i think that the nature created a fantastic photo opportunity and human hand has even improved it; just wonder if the palm tree on the left included in full wouldn't be an option here?
best wishes, jerzy

Sorry for my near four weeks delay in critiques and posts to TE members, but life is life. I like the way you capture this nice scenery, specially the nature and weather atmosphere of the moment. Fine soft tones colors, contrast and sharpness.
Good work and "Parabens".
pnphan (3957) 2005-09-14 4:07
look like paradise Chris
the colors are wonderful and the cloud adds a beautiful mystery feel to the image.
fabio_ts (13696) 2005-09-14 4:17
Splendid view Chris, optimal POV for show to us this beautiful place.. the low clouds in background add to it an evocative atmosphere..

A great composition with four different layers,and each layer has it´s own strong color contrasting with the other ones.Wonderful lightmood here,I like the perspective a lot.
Amirsun (2122) 2005-09-14 4:29
What a nice landscape and what a great atmosphere, Very nice colours and details. I like the silhouette of mountain fade in the clouds. Tanks for sharing.
dvlazar (6662) 2005-09-14 4:31
Your work with the colors is excellent! Very surreal looking shot - and those clouds on the mountains are just magic.
bazal (7900) 2005-09-14 4:34
Nice mix of colors, shapes and textures. The composition is dynamic and the general graphism is interesting... And most of all, the place seems to be really pleasant !
thanks for sharing !

Hi Chris, wonderful image!
all that terraces, full of colors and water, the clouds on the valley, a perfect POV...all great in that image!
papagolf21 (109390) 2005-09-14 5:32
Félicitations pour la réalisation de la prise de vue compte tenu des conditions (autobus filant à toute allure).
Encore un spectacle étonnant qui ravit les yeux.
Very well done.
greg64g (11193) 2005-09-14 5:48
Very nice picture, good colors and exposure everywhere, fantastic mood from this mythic Sumatra.
chaity (1539) 2005-09-14 5:52
Hai Chris, a very nice composition and couldn't imagine you captured this from a speeding bus.
dolin (7369) 2005-09-14 7:19
A beautiful place with a very ncie POV. I like this view from above.
A interesting saturation of all colros.
The 3 parts, braun, green, blue, are perfect and good framed.
The smog (clouds) give a plus too.
deud (1920) 2005-09-14 8:44
great view! very colorful and different. every square meter is different! great. tfs
jrj (34843) 2005-09-14 10:29
Whatever shooting from - if life sometimes can be that simple - humping aroud and shooting paradises... Well good for you then Chris..
nwoehnl (122) 2005-09-14 10:35
It looks like a dream scene - very nice framing with the various layers of land and all of them coming in different colors and shapes. Very good result for being taken from a moving bus.
Lukasso (645) 2005-09-14 10:46
It's like a shot taken in dreams:) The colors are saturated composition, maybe not perfect but well balanced. But you've managed to show what's beautifuel in this place.
ndb1958 (9289) 2005-09-14 10:51
such a beautiful landscape. Great colours.
You catched one more time the beauty of Indonesia.
carper (96) 2005-09-14 11:22

jhm (160077) 2005-09-14 12:16
Again the specially colours, vehement but pleasant for looking, nice panorama view.
rbcy1974 (20758) 2005-09-14 14:19
Wow, the photo is so good, that its hard to believe yo took it from a moving bus. Only comment maybe the half-palm tree should go, otherwise, it is very good image very evocative and with nice layered cololurs.
toni_al (15875) 2005-09-14 18:02
Très joli paysage, entre soleil et brume, très bon cadrage
oochappan (15638) 2005-09-14 23:06
Quite an impresive landscape that you captured here nicely over the several taluds of ricefields to the contrasting greens down and the blue mistybackground, well composed Chris.
cessy (13647) 2005-09-15 1:57

kclai (2267) 2005-09-15 3:58
Good work, man. You got the way to balanced up the shot while the bus is moving toward the bumpy road and still got such a details shot.
It's nice to see you play with the adjustment that give such vibrant color.
Well done, Chris.
weswang (18223) 2005-09-15 4:17
Hi Chris, Beautiful view from the top. Nice warm colors and cold colors combination. The fog in distance view makes a nice contrast to the clear view foreground. Nice composition and a nice shot.

Beautiful view.I like the composition and prespective.Very good colors and contrasts.I like the light and sharpness.Good job!
cmartos (242) 2005-09-15 11:12
Hi Chris! What a mix of colours and relief here. They contrast very well with the cloudy and cold blue background. Moreover the POV from above relly seems to invite us to go go thru the scenery, until the lake downward. A very nice catch and a very good scaning job.
naxius (16685) 2005-09-15 13:28
You have so many beautiful shots in your gallery!
Another one really gorgeous!!
marieaude (1196) 2005-09-15 13:29
Hi Chris, Great photo with beautiful colors. I love those differents tones of green and brown. The fog or volcan smoke ( ?) gives a mistic atmosphere. It is really nice. Good work. (as you say sometimes) C'est trés bon !!!
Thanks a lot
RGatward (20086) 2005-09-16 6:47
Another of your classics. The misty background from the volcano gives this a particularly atmospheric look, and well done getting this from a bus.
clodreno (0) 2005-09-16 8:11
nice landscape Chris. i love those rice terrsses.
Jeppe (18654) 2005-09-16 16:19
Truly a magic place you visit here - the fine mix of colours and the hazy horizon gives a lovely touch. Thanks Chris for sharing this with us.
joseelias (0) 2005-09-20 12:31
Considering what you’ve described this is a very successful image. The framing is quite nice as there’s a clear descending diagonal line from the right to the left bringing dynamic. This is also reinforced by the palm-tree at the left which “holds” our eyes in the middle of the image. Excellent colors and very nice details.
rabani (9645) 2005-09-20 21:47
You must have had practically walked your camera all over Indonesia Chris. You pretty much know just what to frame within your viewfinder, to get that visually pleasing and inviting scene.
mumek (20202) 2005-09-26 16:30
Good evening Chris!
Super landscape with excellent contrast between green fields and trees in the foreground and blue background with foggy mountains. Very good work.Thanks for posting

Une image pour rêver de voyage... trop belles, les couleurs, et superbe composition.
ikeharel (78381) 2016-04-16 0:35
Good morning Chris,
Fantastic sight of the rice-fields over the terraces on the hill, and a great composition you managed despite being on a bus ride. Parts in brown, green and blue mingle wonderfully, showing well the life around the plantation ground's.
Excellent scan of a well preserved picture.
Enjoy your weekend,
