Yes, I’m in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, at the moment (January 2010) and this shot of the city skyline was taken a few minutes ago, without a tripod, for a fairly interesting result. (2,098 views on 18 September 2014.)
Those are the Petronas Towers that dominate the skyline – and yes, at night they do like as if they are made of Swarovski crystal. I shot this from the 35th floor of The Westin – and posted the image on Red Bubble immediately.
I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F4.5, 0.7 sec, ISO 800, focal length 38mm.
