    Putrajaya is a planned city, located 25km south of Kuala Lumpur, that serves as the federal administrative centre of Malaysia. The seat of government was shifted in 1999 from Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya, due to the overcrowding and congestion in the Kuala Lumpur areas. Nevertheless, Kuala Lumpur remains Malaysia's national capital, being the seat of the King and Parliament, as well as the country's commercial and financial centre. Putrajaya was the brainchild of former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohammad. In 2001, Putrajaya became Malaysia's third Federal Territory after Kuala Lumpur and Labuan.

    Named after the first Malaysian Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra, the city is situated within the Multimedia Super Corridor, beside the also newly developed Cyberjaya. In Malay/Sanskrit, the words "putra" or "putera" means "prince", and "jaya" means "success" or "victory". The development of Putrajaya started in early 1990s, and today major landmarks are completed and the population is expected to grow bigger by the days.

    Yup, it's plenty sharp, which is ironic because I don't mind slightly soft lenses, I mainly like fast glass for low light shooting, oof rendition and shallow dof for subject isolation, but the sharpness is definitely a bonus :p

    Another glass to watch out for is the re-release of the SLR magic 50mm 0.95, apparently (according to Steve Huff and his samples anyway) it's the next best thing (if not better ) to the 0.95 Noctilux.

    Love the lamp shot. The light play on the wall makes the shot.

    I like image 5 the most... it almost has an 'out of this world' feel to it.

    Where did you get a 14-point star lens filter??!? I've never seen one of those!

    Small apertures will make stars - one of the nice effects of small apertures is that bright lights will create stars. The stars are created by the light passing the diaphragm.


    picures are taken with iso 100 and f16
