Photographer's Note

Experimental testing of high iso4000. This is my PfB theme series no.7, although I was not to post this building until it is completed and decorated for grand opening which takes a few more months. It is the new State Legislative Assembly building of Sarawak, located at the side of Sarawak River next to Astana palace. The tower crane is still there. What makes this site special is that on the north side of the river, Malay villages dominate the landscape and many trees and green are found. So the new building is located on a good spot for viewing at this side of the waterfront. The gold color of the umbrella roof is selected to follow the existing Assembly building, seen at the right side at far end, which was built in 70s.

The technical of this photo : very boring dull sky and no interesting sunset light, just dim light at late evening and with hand held heavy lens of 50-500mm, to get the speed, the only way without a tripod is iso4000 tested here for noise and resolution. You can see 1/400s is shown. By normal sensor, it is near impossible to get the light exposed suitably with iso500 without noise. Shot from a building, I had no room to move about except for this POV. I would prefer to place it slightly off center but had to include the old building at right for comparison. That is a setback. How do you find the noise level of this photo? The contrast and resolution due to poor light condition and dull sky hopefully can be changed when another day with colorful sunset sky can afford a re-shoot. Any critiques on both technical and other aspects will be welcome.

Jusni/Latiff - I would try iso6400 soon.
