This shot was taken near the palace in Shah Alam where I was on a high ground just to capture the last drop of the sunset. The time I took this picture was at 7:40p.m. onwards just before 7:55p.m. so the 15 minutes is the most precious moment.

Hai KLYee, this mosque seems to be your favourite. Lighting for this photo is still good but loose out a bit on sharpness. Noise is noticable in certain places.

That's really a good pic. The inclusion of foreground tree is prudent.

Wonderful capture indeed. These colours compliment the palace very well. I even like the natural framing of the tree. Well done!

Another SA mosque. Never never get bored about it. caused you have turn this one individual landscape into so many facets that give so different view and effects.
hey hey friend. just check with you that did you superimpose the branches onto the image as i noticed some unclean work!! apologise if i'm wrong, pal. no hard feeling, right.

One of the most amazing photos I have seen on this site. Your composition makes it a perfect photo, especially including the vast sky and the tree. Congratulations.

The composition is very good and the highly saturated colors does the work as well...
Very well done,

Hi, Nice pic! Great colours but I think the black tower on the right is strange. Well done :-)
timleahy (2195) 2005-12-01 8:58
Wonderful image! The colours are fantastic. I like the composition, with the spires on the mosque pointing up to the big sky above. I think the shot is a little noisy? Wondered if you ever used Neat Image or equivalent?

O enquadramento, a luz que proporciona essas otimas cores, estão fantasticos.
Thank for sharing.

jiekuan (332) 2006-02-27 11:47
Personally feel that too much digital processing, but the good composition is the real spirit of this picture! well done!
robertbartolome (270) 2006-11-08 8:21
Amazing photo! I love the colors. I wish I could also take photos like this. I wonder how long you had to wait to take this shot :-)
Thanks for sharing this.

Nice picture, amazing contrasted sunset colours, really interesting view, but I think You overused the saturation, it looks unnaturally...
What is even worse, the compression artifacts are clearly visible, and the file could be 2x bigger! It is most visible on the tree.
teutza (10590) 2006-11-09 9:32
briliant composition!colours are amasing and the light!i like a lot the arhitecture!i don't like the noise in the upper part!
phlenain (47) 2006-11-09 9:43
Beautiful colors, even they're unrealistic. nice shot!
karenr (78) 2006-11-09 10:01
I really enjoy the way you have framed the masjid with the tree in the evening light. The DOF is good, and I wondered if there was a breeze blowing. The noise in the top right is a bit distracting. Wonderful colours. Great work!!

A 1001 night vision... Beautiful composition and colours. It may be looks unnatural with the saturation but the result is a dreamland mosque, a very peaceful atmsophere (we can't imagine any noise). Very useful technical note, thanks.

wow, stunning effect again, TFS!
trekks (14348) 2007-10-17 1:35
