Bukit Tinggi, Photography Experience

My family had a one-night stay in Bukit Tinggi, Pahang this Hari Raya Puasa Holiday. Why Bukit Tinggi? Because the missus planned this solely for me.


So I experimented with over three hundred clicks, and set some exposure times to twenty seconds.


I continued practicing as early as six o'clock in the next morning,


carrying a tripod around, and setting self timer to two seconds at the same time to prevent from any camera shake.


Where is all my joy at the end? It can be found in every of these pictures.

Very well taken, rainfield! I love long exposure shots.

Love the sight of the castle on the 2nd pic; I guess few more extra seconds and the exposure would be right there, like the first pic.

These photos are absolutely amazing. You've captured clear, bright details, so carrying the tripod around was definitely worthwhile. Your joy has become our joy.

Hi.. First time dropping by here.. :)
Love the shots. I hardly play with my DSLR anymore. Just some lazy shots most of the time. And nowadays the idea of lugging the heavy equipment on holidays kinda depress me. But I think I should dust my camera back. These kinda photos inspires me.. :)

Your pictures are really beautiful.I feel plenty of romance and happy from your night phots.
It is difficult for me to take nice light pictures. Your skill is brilliant.

Such fun and all the shots are so beautiful - quite a difference from your jungle realm but lovely in its own right.
