This was my first view on the Petronas Towers seen from my hotel-room. The buildings reflected in another building.
It was my first trip to KL. An interesting multicultural and multietnic city. I enjoyed the 3 days in KL on my way to Bali.

I do like your different point of view of these two beautiful towers! It's a while ago I posted a series on the Petronas towers, but I do really like KL. An amazing melting pot of cultures and old and new.
I do have a slight feel that the focus is a bit more on the tow lower buildings reflected in the foreground. But focussing through a mirrored wall, that surely is a pain in the lower behind ;-). Thanks for sharing!

your picture is so different from the others, the reflections in glass create very nice pattern. Well done

Hi Nino. amazing reflections, the Petronas as in a impressionist paint!

Nice shot Nino!
Excellent idea to display the towers in a new light (so to speak). Still very much recognizable in this distorted reflection. The black-out window actually adds to the shot, nicely breaking up the otherwise perfect grid.
All the best in 2008!

I didn't see this perspective during my last stay in KL
It's very beautifull.

Looks really great and original (never seen that view before). Looks like toy or candies or khakie towers... Excellent.

One thousands puzzles wre needed to build this mosaique.. great reflection with an artistic mess changing well known, architectonical forms.. Great observation!
with regards, Agnieszka

Love this alternative POV of the KL twin towers. Well done. Your shot proves that much-often photographed subjects can be depicted in new light if one looks for new angles/perspectives. At times, the opportunity comes along when we are at the right place (and time).
Cheers / Steven

Very impressive. These reflections are unique, a great very creative catch of these so well known towers. Great work.

Back to cold Europe? This is surely an original of the twin towers. The fluid graphic reflections are indeed very interesting. Fine shot indeed!

Excellent view! The idea of the reflection of the Petronas Towers is lovely.
An unusual view so...great!

So you are back from Bali. Hope you had a great trip. Great idea to start with a few days in KL (good alternative to BKK) on the way to Bali. It's a great capture of the towers - very creative. I really like the many square....especially the different nuances of the blue sky.
PS - I'm going back to Bali and Java the 29th of March for 5 weeks :O)
Have a nice Sunday.

Thas superb! Really well chosen POV in result of which the reflection looks like a modern mosaic. The glass seems to be so very clear so achieved excellent result.
I like it a lot!
marknunnerley (2780) 2008-02-25 6:38
It's like a giant mosaic Nino, done after a bottol or two of wine maybe. Looks like an impressive building. Difficult to obtain a different perspective but you have that here.
Anna-- (7791) 2008-03-16 6:49
it'is a beautiful reflection, very good light and colors. The open window seems a lost piece of a puzzle :)
Have a nice sunday

A very different shot of a much shot building. Great work. Love the POV. I was there last month and pretty uninspired by the building. But this sort gives me an shot in the arm and makes me understand that I need to be patient and look around the subject for something different.
