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).

I love low pressure sodium lights, they produce such an interesting light and is the one common thing across nearly all night urban-photography making for a great subject.This was taken on the streets of Batu Ferringhi, Penang near the main night markets. I used the smaller aperture to create a more sparkly effect of the light source and to encapsulate all the surroundings with a greater depth of field. I really like the lens flare produce, some people hate it, but in this case here I think it adds greater emphasis to the subject.
