[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I tried to ‘visualize’ my feeling when appreciating the full moon light that beautifies the surrounding of Bukit Padang Mosque. An aromatic tobacco and a light tune from the car audio accompany me while waiting for perfect 'lighting' and clouds formation.

Well, not much could be expected from a compact digital camera, and a tripod that was unintentionally left. Series of photo were taken before I decided to create more interest to outcast the blur by resting the camera on the roof of a car and to compose (hardly tried) the reflection on it. This image was post-processed: “Color balance” to enrich color, “shadow/highlight” to improve details and sense of depth on the cloud.

I hope this image will trigger us, especially beginner like me, an idea for a better image with our better camera/lens and more interesting subject. Perhaps, as for me, the Tun Fuad Park lake located nearby with Kampung Nelayan Restaurant, whatever, and a DSLR. Some other full moon night. (Kalau ada kawan la… Safety-first diorang bilang, nanti aramaiti jadi matainoiti, palis-palis)

Great innovation here Ramdan! You did a great job using your car as a spontaneous tripod, the light and composition here are actually very good!

Hi ramdan.
Beautiful shoot and great moon lighting and beautiful landscape.
Great PP work
Well done.

Ramdan, interesting idea and execution there. Perhaps the image doesn't do justice to your effort and patience (tobacco, car audio and all), but your photographic eye is already at work there.

I've never been to Tun Fuad Park apart from my occasional seafood sessions at Nelayan. Perhaps you could introduce me to the place.

Lovely to see all the different colours and different shades. Well done.
Best wishes,

hello Ramdan,

cantik lah shot kamu ne.. beautiful night scene with the faraway bulan. not bad at all.. and belum terlambat aku nak welcome kamu ke treklens.. orang kk, kah? adeh ada aramaiti lagi.. adidi..

regards, terry

Hello Ramdan
This is a striking image. I've heard it said that the best camera is the one you have with you and this certainly proves the point. Interesting contrast between the warm color of the walls and the greenish (on my monitor) sky. I looked at the light glinting on the top of the mosque and the words "black pearl" came to mind. Eerily, that is the title of an image posted just a few minutes before this one.

Hi Ramdan

Creative. Very good pov and composition. Although you could avoid the blur, it gives a good view. Keep posting and looking forward to your new camera soon. TFS

Where are you located?

Hello Ramdan, I really like this composition, the quality is not perfect of course but the image is interresting and you photographed the scene very well. Thanks !


Hello Ramdan..:)
My first visit..you have a wonderful pictures here..;D..>this is much interesting..good night shot my friend..>Very well scene..>


Hello Ramdan

Welcome to TrekLens! :-)

This is a superb idea for a composition. The moonlight looks great and the mosque so beautiful under its shine. You have done great PP work here, I congratulate you. TFS.


I enjoy that way to present it! Very good image! The reflection in foreground is nice, the compo is strong with that sky, the building look almost floating between the sky and reflection!
Welcome on TL!

Hi my friend,

Amazing shot. Really good night shot of this beautiful landscape. The cloud details and using lighting from the moon is just creative and innovative technique.



Nice composition.
Even your compact camera could have given a better image quality in this case. There was no need to shoot at ISO 250, since the camera was resting on something. By manually putting the ISO to the lowest setting of 64 you would have gotten much better image quality.


Hi Ramdan.. I think I like this shot because it isn't perfectly clear. The slight blur works here to create a mood..Nice work.


J'adore les contrastes de cette photo. Le mélange des couleurs est bienvenu. Bravo et merci pour le partage.

Hi Ramdan, Good ambiance from this dusk composition of the Domed Mosque. The moon shining on the dome is very effective. TFS. Murray.

Hello Ramdan! Amazing POV, wonderful architecture. Beautiful composition. Mysterious lightness. Fantastic effect. Good luck!

Hi Ramdan,
this is wonderful. Like the light of guidance coming to the heart. The patience in waiting for the right moment make this pix looks great. The art of manipulation goes to the photographer, who exploit the environment...adding reflection to the photo.
Congratulations for being able to manipulate, the mundane to something interesting ( referring to other shots too).
keep up.
thanks for supporting and encouraging me.
