Shot of the Day #12

I was in Kuala Lumpur in January this year for a short time, less than a week, but I was lucky enough to stay in the KLCC and able to admire the tallest twin towers in the world.

The Petronas Twin Towers (Malay: Menara Berkembar Petronas) (also known as the Petronas Towers or just Twin Towers), in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia are twin towers and were the world’s tallest buildings before being surpassed by Taipei 101. However, the towers are still the tallest twin buildings in the world. They were the world’s tallest buildings from 1998 to 2004 if measured from the level of the main entrance to the structural top, the original height reference used by the international organization Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat from 1969 (three additional height categories were introduced as the tower neared completion in 1996).

Shot of the Day #11

This photo of the Eastern Freeway – outbound from the Melbourne CBD was taken tonight around 2 hours ago. I love the streaming car-lights of freeways and whenever there’s an opportunity to get a shot of moving car-lights I’ll take it :P For beginners I think this type of long exposure is an awesome start to building enthusiasm for urban night photography.

Shot of the Day #10

This photo isn’t anything too fancy, however I really like this photograph because I managed to get a clear sharp focus on the insect and managed to capture the water droplets as well in the tiny depth of field :P ! I used my kit lens, 18mm-75mm, so it wasn’t a special macro lens. The other factor in this photograph is the clarity achieved from such a large original ( however, reduced the quality for the web), which wouldn’t have been possibly with a low pixel count, whereas 14.2 mega-pixels does help a lot when cropping down!

I'm Beached As Bro - by Matthew Stewart

Kane Gledhill

Kane’s Autobiography (from Flickr profile):

My name is Kane Gledhill, I am 27 years old.

I live in Brisbane, QLD, Australia.

I’ve been a keen photographer for over 15 years; I picked up my first SLR camera when I was still in school, back when I lived in New Zealand. It was a Vivitar v2000 and it cost me $300.00 cash! I’ve probably put 100’s of rolls of film through this little gem, I’d never sell.
