tilted purpose(ly)


Even with a tripod, I managed to tilt the shot! However, the details and colour amazed me. Three cheers for Manfrotto! Maybe the fountain was built on a slant =)

As you can see, it's an old fountain and it stands on a corner of Dataran Merdeka (Independence Square.) I'm not entirely sure of it's history but there's nothing like it's design anywhere else in the city. Behind it is the Supreme Courthouse, and behind that is a bank. Money stands behind justice as life continues to sprout out the mouths of history aka the fountain. The symbolism that I come up with... It's late and it's been a long, wonderful weekend. Forgive me. I myself wonder what goes on in this head of mine sometimes.

Edwin you are so funny and the photo wouldn't be so good if it wasn't tilled a bit. Great and cheerful colours.
I'm glad you had a wonderful weekend. Have a good week now.

Another beautiful KL night shot! But I also really appreciate the explanation of the background and your spontaneous take on the symbolism...the eternal pecking order. It were forever thus!
As for the tilt, if you don't want it to tilt, just shorten one, or even two, of the legs. Not that it detract from this great pic.

Fantastic shot!! Nice grouping of subjects! Man that fountain is elaborate.

I think that fountain is a little off. Next time your there, climb up there and put a level on it!

Hurrah Hurrah Hurrah for Manfrotto!!!

great night show Edwin, and the fountain plus the two buildings behind seem to present three different styles of architecture.

Pardon Kala? Half as good? I wish I could get half as good as you. I feel the beginning a a mutual admiration society here ;)

Thanks for the pleasure of living vicariously Felicia. Straight back atcha!

Nowhere and Juggerpix: I'll climb higher and remember to carry a step ladder with me. And a torchlight...it's so dark at night.

wonky shot for a wonky mind...I'm good!

Thanks again for the great comments everyone! You make it worth even more. Gracias!

Edwin, my first impression of the buidlings in the back is they look a bit on the Las Vegas side with all their lights...but the fountain..oh my very impressive, You have really captured some amazing color with this!

You've outdone yourelf! The lighting and the colors are fabulous. Why do I feel like I'm in some altered version of Paris when I look at this? Ah, the lighting, the fountain, the night!
Kudos,
