Top 20 Photos of 2013 - #17


Taken through a hotel window, this is a night scene of the town of Kuantan. The night lights make it appear that the streets are on fire, or that some pile of lava has flowed down from an eruption close by. All this imaginary commotion goes on beneath a full moon. The space between the moon and the land emphasizes both and provides a nice contrast. Technically, I had to first focus on the land and then alter the composition by moving the camera up to include the moon. For me, this is a very pleasing outcome!


  1. Hi Duncan.

    Wonderful bild.Ja it really looks like a lava stream along the streets.
    Nice job.

  5. All good Duncan, so far my favourite is No.18, the bokeh is exquisite! Can't wait to see as we get higher on the list!

  6. I think this one might be my favorite of yours so far! The streets look so much like fire and I love the expanse of sky in between the moon and the cityscape! Excellent!
