I decided to take a night shot for this hotel as I find the building looks better if part of the interior can be seen through the glass walls. It will give another dimension to the viewer to experience.
The Empire Hotel and Country Club is the only beachside hotel in Brunei. It has 360 rooms, 63 suites and palatial villas set in a 180 hectars estate facing the South China Sea. Just next to it is a Jack Nicklaus designed championship golf course. There are also 5 restaurants (Italian restaurant, Beach restaurant, Li Gong restaurant, Atrium Café and The Spike Lounge) and an impressive range of sport and leisure facilities. For cinema goers, there are 3 cinemas with state of the art digital sound system. In the evening you can swim and enjoy a beautiful sunset at the same time. It is a nice place to unwind and relax.

Hi Aloysius! What a high quality night shot. I don't see any noise at all and the exposure of 5 seconds is dead on. This shot really glows. Most impressive Aloysius!

Good night shot, the building is impressive and the angle good, the colors are fine with good dark/clear contrasts, the focus is good in the center, a bit less on the left, but it does not trouble too much as it is in a dark area.
Have a nice day,

Aloysius, yes, you have demonstrated that this building was meant to be photographed at night. A beauty. Congratulations.

A superb night shot, with a warm, ambient light, & good sharpness & perspective. I like the star patterned lights. Bagus sekali!

Well it seems that all your photos that are night shots have the most visitors. I have to admit this one is a place of beauty just like your other shots too. But this one is closer to the subject and the details are stunning. Please don't sell your camera. It produces nice sharpness for all your scenes.

Nice shot Aloysius, it is a very nice hotel. My family and I went there for dinner few times, always facinating with the architecture and design. Very well captured and nice composition. Details and lighting is good too. Thanks for sharing.
