This is the British Governor-General's Colonial House by Penang Sea in Penang, Malaysia, which was wonderfully restored by the Malaysian Government in the late 1990s.
Penang used to be a British Colony, hence a lot of the roads and highways continue to be named after their former Governor-Generals. Taken from the 20th floor of Northam Suites at high noon. Since it's a small island, within just a day you can see much of Penang and its old Portugese, Indian and British architecture.

I like your composition and POV here. The photo has good color and lighting with nice sharpness. I think a polarizer would have helped to control the glare from the white surfaces of the house.

Like your POV a lot has caught the details of the beautiful architecture very well... Love these colonial buildings... none so grand here where I am except that palace.

Nice! I guess the British Governor must be one lucky guy. Such a cool place to stay.

Ah. I love the old colonial architecture of SE Asia. I have several shots of Myanmar in my folder. It certainly is an impressive building with some interesting colours. Quality wise, a polariser would have been good and also, next time, don't increase the saturation by too much. I find the colours vivid, but a little too unrealistic.

Hi Josh. Very good composition of this old colonial house. Excellent POV from this high vantage point. Having the sea beyond is excellent. Murray.
