Boldness At The Very Edge

David McMahon

Melbourne, Australia

Artist's Description

This shot of the Petronas Towers, Kuala Lumpur, was taken in July 2008. It was a hot, sunny day and I wanted a frame that emphasised the effective combination of triangles, arcs and straight lines within a single facade. 1,055 views on 9 April 2014.

By composing this shot, I concentrated on the abstract aspect of the image. Yet, it is instantly recognisable as the facade of the side-by-side towers.

Euclid himself would have been impressed with the great work of the architects.

I do not crop or post-edit my work in any way. I shot this with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F9.5, 1/250 sec, ISO 200, focal length 50mm.
