Hello Rabani - not sure how I missed this one but glad I've seen it now! Absolutely lovely. The moonlit sky and roof is really well captured as is the oil lamp lit home. Interesting note too! Best wishes Rosemary

A very moody shot with plenty of atmosphere, letting the viewer see a slice of Malaysian life or better nature. The light management is excellent, no flaws what so ever. Vibrant colour hues and high sharpness. Well done - I also had a look at some of your other photographs, good photo job!
