What a gorgeous sunset over Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia?!

One of my favourite things to do when I am in a new city is to get up as high as I can and look down into its streets. KL has many unique buildings that loom over you as you explore it. One of them of course is the amazing Petronas twin towers but in this composition you can see the KL tower poking her head above the skyline. I was lucky enough to have the sun set just beside it and it lit up like a torch on fire.

I love how the photos we take and creaete can evoke such tangible memories in ourselves. Looking at this photo I am reminded of how happy I was when I visited and explored this beautiful city in Malaysia.


I stylised the image using Adobe Photoshop CC using Luminosity masks from techniques I learnt from the master Jimmy Mcintyre. Checkout all of Jimmy’s Luminance mask and HDR tutorials using this Link. Jimmy Mcintyre’s Tutorials Link

I go to Perfect Effects from OnOne a lot to stylise my images. I have become comfortable with the product and am starting to know how to use it to get it to work for me. It can pretty much do anything you can think of.  Check it out here On1 Perfect Effects
