A splendid view on the city monuments and scrapers, from an a skew angel, with white tents provided a line of refference, also palms added nice elements to the image.
Sharpness and contrast of colors were superb.

Your gallery from Malaysia is amazing, I come back often to enjoy your images of the skyline with the Petronas towers. This is a beautiful skyline too, and looks almost animated with its bright pastel colours and the excellent composition.

The wideness of the park is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the buildings. The presence of the people is adding life to the scene. The good luminosity is making the colours to stand out. Have a nice dya.
