It's another shot of Shah Alam Mosque. When I was in Shah Alam taking this shot...there are peoples looking at me and wondering why I was so interested on this gate and they must be thinking I am..!!!At first I was thinking of trees using for framing then I saw something smaller and effective. I actually took 2 shots of this angle. The vertical shot has cover a full star but I prefer the horizontal shot coz the lower part of the mosque is little empty unless there are people walking towards the mosque then I will choose the vertical shot. This is one of the shot selected by the Tourism Selangor for photo contest recently. This shot was selected for second prize.

This is a brilliantly captured shot, putting the "star" marking into the pic.
What you could do to improve the pic is to have two diffrent shot, one focusing at the star and the other at the mosque.
Cut out the star (with sharp focusing) and put it into the second pic. This will totally changed the way of it.

Hai KL Yee, I like the framing of this photo with the Shah Alam mosque in the middle. The formation of clouds is nice too.

Very, very nice Yee - one of your best. The bluish-grey tone of the star shape of the fence (or whatever it is in the foreground) blends well with the colours in the rest of the picture. Good use of PL filter too. Cheers . . . David

Beautiful temple in blue tones. I like the way it is framed. Very good. I prefer it with a note though so I can learn about the place.

nice pov, a very different way of framing the mosque.the bluish hue is nice too....yeah, i agree it would be more interesting to have some activities, or people to liven up the shot.

Wow! Great composition. I love the wide-angle format, and the depth of field. Good use of the polarizer too. Well seen and executed.

Great way of framing your picture! Love this blue sky filled with white fluffy clouds. nice contrast between the building and sky, and good atmosphere over the photo.
