SENJA DI KUALA LUMPUR
 



     
 


Title and picture inspired by that Broery song:

di kota mu yang megah
tak sedar siang telah menjelma senja
kan ku ingat...kan ku kenang
senja indah senja di Kuala Lumpur


Story: The 15 Minute Window
When I saw the evening sky bursting into a rare palette of magical hues, I knew I had approximately 15 minutes to capture it before it desaturates into darkness (left). It would take precious 10 minutes to get to a spot where the city skyline is distinct.

When I arrived, I shot from the car to save time. With less than 5 minutes to go; I needed to change lens, fine-tune the exposure, set the correct white balance and wait for the right mix of cars to zoom by in front. I chose a slow but hand-holdable shutter speed to add a contrasting sense of motion to the foreground.

Olympus E-1, ISO 100, f3.5, 1/80sec - Zuiko Digital 11-22mm lens
