[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Probably the most beautiful and imposing waterfalls in Vietnam, Ban Gioc waterfall is located in Đam Thuy Commune, Trung Khanh District and 90 km from the capital of province that bears same name Cao Bang, a highland province of North that borders with Guangxi Province of China. The fall itself has often been in ownership dispute between the two countries, and finally divided into two in 1999, each owns half and takes the fall and river as natural boundary. The fall is of 53m in height and over 200 meters in width and listed the largest transnational waterfall in Asia.

Actually, 2 persons in the photo are my friends and they are not couple!

a great momment you capture in this shot, fine details nice sharpen, romantic scene. TFS

Hi Tan Tran
That is a marvelous shot! Rich green color, long exposure that creates movement in that beautiful multi steps waterfall. The water down the fall is calm with no disturbinbg reflections, and the red touch of the lady's blouse illuminates the whole scenery. Those rocks in the foreground create a good perspective.
Nicely done

Hi Tan
Absolutely beautiful capture. Excellent lighting and mood achieved. Nicely composed and seen.

They say that Vietnam can be a land of dreams and paradise... and I'm starting to believe that....
My best regards.
