Visting Masjid Ubudiah – Kuala Kangsar Mosque

Apparently the most beautiful mosque in Malaysia and of the most photogenic mosques in the World! Quite an accolade for humble Kuala Kangsar.

We took a trip out there on the second day of our outing as it’s fairly close to Sungai Siput, we reached there with the beautiful early morning light hitting the sides of the golden domes.

It was breathtaking with the pure blue skies. I hope I’ve captured some of its’ beauty here.

It was a splendid place to visit really, if you are in the area do check it out. Early morning or late afternoon would be the best times.

    The scene positioning of the first picture is remarkable! The clouds at the background of the right most palm tree gave its leaves an “outer glow” effect.

    Was that intentional or you just happened to be snapping the picture at the right place and time?

    I know next to nothing about photography but you’ve got a really good eye! Do you photoshop your pictures? I’ve been to visit masjid ubudiah but the colours in your photo are brighter than life.

    nice backdrop! Is it me or do your pictures seem sharper than the usual generic pictures?

    Azmeen: Partially coincidence, partially framing (putting the sun behind the tree) and a little bit of Photoshop 😀

    Eryn: Thanks, keep on reading!

    izzat: Go go buy buy!

    spiller: Not a fan loh, just saja go.

    Mark: Thanks! Architecture is generally best shot early morning when the sky is still clear blue and the sun is at a low angle in the sky.

    Mama BoK: Thanks, the beautiful building made it easy!

    kaswira: Er sorry, but where’s the religion in this post?

    Elle Zhang: Yes because I shoot in RAW so everything is converted to JPEG for web viewing. Some adjustments are made depending on the desired outcome, but these are pretty original. Those really were the colours.

    kevin: Been there a few times, but had really bad luck with weather/haze haha.

    HK: Not really sure what you mean? What are generic pics?

    Love your photographs. it’s beautiful. Btw, didn’t know you were at Henessey Artistry. Would have dropped by to say Hi.

    WOW… The photographs taken are awesome! It brings out the design and the architecture of the mosque.

    I am amazed.

    I am just curious, have you ever snapped some shots of Twin Towers or KL tower?

  14. ShaolinTiger April 23, 2008 at 1:41 pm #

    eiling: Thanks eiling, yeah quite a few bloggers were there.

    grace: It’s a really beautiful building. I have taken those places yeah but not recently..hard to take any unique pics of them too.

  15. grace April 26, 2008 at 10:19 pm #

    Yeah, I notice that too. I am still wondering which is the exact location to capture a near-perfect shot of the Twin Towers. Do you?

  16. ShaolinTiger April 30, 2008 at 1:20 pm #

    grace: I’m not sure too, I’m not so familiar with KL city. It also really depends what kind of shot you want – there is no perfect place. There are a number of places to get very nice shots though.
