Putrajaya – The Haze & The Dew

I was up early one morning so I headed to Putrajaya to take the sunset and some architecture pictures, all I got was haze..super duper mega haze.

Disappointing to say the least, not a cheap journey either, 20 bucks petrol, 10 bucks toll and a couple of hours.

I did manage to get a couple of shots of the morning dew though, then I got bitten to death by mosquitoes, it’s a shame I think they would have been great pictures.

The famous Palace of Justice, the only building with an English name in Putrajaya, odd eh?

This is my favourite shot, Vanishing point!

The haze makes it nice and moody too, but imagine this shot with nice clear bright light and a pale blue sky..

The morning dew, just testing out the macro lens, ran off after getting bitten too much.

Here’s one of the bridge during magic hour, the hour before sunrise.

And check this out, my very first panning shot!

Panning

This is the technique people use to take motorsports etc, get a blurry background to give a sense of speed.

Will work on the Bugis Street set later 🙂

    Today’s little bit of trivia:

    The Palace of Justice in Putrajaya has an English name, as the name Istana Keadilan was not approved back in 2001 or thereabouts.

    Haha..kinda hard to shoot a moving vehicle. It’ll be great if you can capture the full car in that photo.

    Very hazy even with the rain last night. Maybe it didn’t rain at Putrajaya.

    IMHO, Putrajaya is one the best place to study “bad taste architecture”.

    v0ices: 7.30am dude, that was the only car, public holiday some more LOL

    tigerjoe: Ah thanks for that nugget of info Joe.

    Galvin: Yah shoulda done, but was using prime lens, so unless I very fast run backwards nothing much I can do hehe. I composed with the space at the front to give extra feeling of speed as the car enters the frame.

    spiller: Thanks man 🙂 Hectic weekend but very productive.

    moo_t: Hahaha, well yeah, but it’s interesting at least.

    foodcrazee: Yah bro, cost me RM30-40 there and back hehe.

    Miss Cellania: You’re too kind! Well they are ok, just not as I visualised or expected..
