Masjid Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu (Kota Kinabalu City Mosque)was officially opened on February 2nd, 2000 following a proclamation of Kota Kinabalu as city status. It is the second main mosque in Kota Kinabalu, located at Likas Bay, about 10 - 15 minutes drive on the coastal highway.
Built with impressive and marvelous architecture closely and immaculately resembles the design of the Masjid al-Nabawi (The Prophet´s Mosque) in Medina, Saudi Arabia. The City Mosque was built on a man-made lagoon, which created an impression to be floating above water, a fine reason in bringing this landmark to be one of the City's main tourism attraction.

Nice perspective view, Ramdan, of this islamic architecture in evening sky, with still reflections and lightings. I like the dome although I prefer it at central position to commmand its significance. A good symmetry here. Well done. TFS

nice light and colors, it seems, in my opinion, a little too much pixelated (probably due to 400 ISO). I would prefer to have a larger view of the reflection.

Very Nice. This photo must have been difficult as it is a night scene. I LOVE THE COLORS.
I just got a new Canon 40D and noticed you use a 300D. Any words of advice.

Hello Ramdan! Gold and blue create a very nice atmosphere in this photo. The blue hour has made everything blue (sky, water, building), which is nice. There's a little noise, but I don't find it too intrusive. The only thing I don't like is the street lamp on the left. I also agree with Gio that more of the reflection would be good to see, and maybe it would emphasise that impression of being floating that you mention.
Keep on it!

You have awesome skills for capturing architecture. Beautiful use of light and reflection on this composition of the mosque. Useful notes too.

Great timing with the blue hour and the lights, also the calm conditions for the reflection. I wonder if a wider lens would have been better to include the entire reflection, though of course that would result in much more distortion of the minarets.

Fantastic nightshot (I am a nightshot lover), totally magic "blue" hour and a perfect architecture shot at the same time. Simple but great composition, wonderful reflection and PERFECT light managment. Congratulations!
