Royal Perak Museum (Muzium Diraja) & Galeri Sultan Azlan Shah

Nearby to Masjid Ubudiah there are some other interesting sites like the Muzium Diraja Perak and the Galeri Sultan Azlan Shah.

Seen as though we were nearby we dropped by, sadly the museum was closed on Sundays.

Just grabbed a quick shot of it over the fence, its pained in the royal perak colours.

A very cute building it was, after that we headed over to the Galeri Sultan Azlan Shah which was a beautifully laid out place. It somewhat reminded me of Putrajaya though.

Wide angle power!

The fountain was beautiful.


And there were some very nice leading lines.

It was very very hot then as it was reaching midday, we headed back to Cinta Alam for lunch then to one final destination before coming back to KL.

    Are these photos were HDR? Because the exposure was damn perfect. I like it. 🙂

    Love the fountain shot the most 😀

    Are the photos touched up in PS? or are those raw processed?

    All your photo just seem to have amazing contrast and blend of colours :O

    izzat: Only one is HDR, the rest didn’t need it. Can you guess which?

    moons: All my pics are carefully processed from RAW to give vivid colours. The contrast is also due to light and angle of the photo, the fountain one works best due to composition…have to consider when taking that pic I had to 1) Stand in the right place so the tip of the fountain was at the centre peak of the building 2) Stand at the correct distance so I could get both side fountains in shot 3) Compose so it was symmetrical 4) get the exposure right for dark black fountain and bright white building 5) Get the roofline straight and parallel to the horizon 6) Stand far enough forwards so the shadow from the building behind wasn’t in the bottom of the pic. That’s just an example of the thought that goes into 1 pic!

    Beautiful shots as usual St.

    The fountain pics are very soothing. I am going to take a guess and say the 1st pic is hdr?

    pics are gorgeous. but pics aside, ever notice the amount of $$ splashed on the royal town on kuala kangsar, perak?

    and yet again, this is coming from the 3rd lowest annual income earning ability per person per state in the country. no wonder development in perak is near stand still.

    The pics are really really magnificent.

    Which camera are you using? My boyfriend is itching for a DSLR in fact, and perhaps you could recommend a good one worth the 2K.

    I miss Perak so much!!!

    You made the place look like a fantasy.

    wombok: Thanks, it was a very nice place. And yes you’re right it’s the first pic!

    kevin: Thanks and yes I did notice it was rather lavish…oh well what to do?

    ahlost: Thanks!

    grace: I’m using Nikon D200…for 2k? That’s a bit of a limited budget. Need 3.5-4k for a decent starting setup (Nikon D80 + 18-70mm lens is a great start and about RM3400).

    Alia: It’s a very photogenic place.
