So after getting up early on Saturday morning we met at the Caltex before the trunk road to Kuala Selangor, after driving for about an hour we reached Sekinchan, just after Kuala Selangor towards Teluk Intan.
Sekinchan is known as the ricebowl of Malaysia with a lot of paddy fields and some pretty interesting fishing villages. The morning was hot, but sadly, a little hazy so the skies and light weren’t perfect.
But as always I made the best of it with my superwide 10mm lens and trust CPL.
Even managed to sneak some wide angle panning in 🙂
We took a few shots after lunch, but not much interesting at it was getting close to noon so the light was very harsh.
This spooky deserted house was quite interesting though.
After lunch we headed off to a nearby fishing village for a walk around, pretty interesting and extremely smelly.
Panning the Squid Man
There were fish everywhere, every direction, drying in the sun.
We headed back into the paddy fields in the late afternoon hoping to get some rich greens, but a storm was coming and the sky was grey causing the light to be very flat..so we had to spend our time on details and I did some HDR.
I went for an in-flight dragonfly.
Road to nowhere.
After that we drove back to Sekinchan for dinner, we missed the sunset though as we thought it was going to stay overcast…but at the last minute the sun came back out!
Headed back home after dinner, reached home about 9pm exhausted!
Great trip though, will definitely go there again.

Sekinchan – Shutter Asia – June 2nd
Your pics are quite brilliant ST. I am quite impressed with your eye.
ST! All of these photos are beautifully shot! Good contrast, my favourite – grey reflection! Superb shots!
i really like ‘vanishing point’. don’t know much about the technicalities, but it came out as a great photo to me
Beatiful work Harimau!
wow great pics, i personally love grey reflections & the spooky deserted house (would look great as a postcard).
those are some very nice pictures, although grey reflections is my personal favourite.
Yeah, I like vanishing point too!
Grey reflections is nifty as well, despite me not being much a fan of HDR.
Woah, those shots are excellent, I like the colour of pictures #1, #2, #3 and #4. Most favourite is the old house.
were any of these photoshopped? I liked the grey reflections but i have my suspicions
Thanks all! Seems like Grey Reflections is a strong fav!
vicky: Thanks Vicky, I like that one too, very moody. Seems to be a favourite!
suanie: Yeah I like the detail and the way the water curves away I had to shoot tightly because the sky was boring grey.
Chatts: Thanks boss, looking forwards to more of your pics on Flickr!
moonss: Thanks man, the house is my favourite too I think. Would have been better if I had a tripod.
Mark: The first four are processed with Velvia style colour.
jaz: Not sure what you mean? They were all converted from RAW in Photoshop. And the house and the last 2 are HDR.
Great shots! But the blue skies seem photoshoped?
Ranga: What does this photoshopped thing mean? Are you referring to the uneven blueness of the sky caused by a circular polariser on a superwide lens?
how come no flies on the ikan masin?
Yes, that’s exactly it! The circular polariser superwider thingamajig. I hope I didn’t come off as accusatory. I was just asking. And then I felt a little camera-stupid after your reply.
Yeah, one more vote for Grey Reflections
KY: I think it smells to bad even for the flies haha.
Ranga: Haha no worries, I just don’t really like this trend of whatever people don’t understand being labelled as ‘Photoshopped’.
gazard: Good choice!
nice, very nice shot, like the last 1 most
