This is the famous Petronas Twin Tower in Kuala Lumpur taken on a hazy night. The haze is actually a smoke of the forest fire roaring on Sumatra. It was making the walk very uncomfortable, but played its role on a picture :)

Eugene, interesting effect you have going on here. It looks like an scene from 'Blade Runner'.

Reminds of Batman the movie or something similar. I think it's the effects of the smoke saturated with the light from the exposure. I think from the flood lights at the bottom of the towers where it seems over exposed, versus the blacked out parts of the buildings in the foreground. Good effect and nice pOV.

I heard about this fog created by the fires. Great job for using it to your advantage

We see a lot a images of the Petronas tower, but you make a great compo with this foreground. The smoke give an very nice atmosphere. Great job.
PS The tower lean to the left

I like the atmosphere of your image. At first I had thought it was fog before I enlarged the image and read your note.

One can easily imagine Spiderman hanging from a rope, appearing from between those two fantomatic towers!!
Surreal effect enhanced by haze.
