The newly renovated Capitol Theater building is open! Totally a new facelift!
I wrote a blog about my exploration inside the old building during the early stage of renovation. Check it out if you will.
There was an event going on inside the new building at the time of making this pano shot but I was still able to stand by the main entrance and had a glimpse of the interior. Well, nothing special, just well lit with sunlight shining through the ceiling windows but I wonder how it would look like at night. That will be another visit in the near future.
Here's a couple of panorama photographs I made of the old Capitol Theater building with my HORIZON PERFEKT back in 2010, which I have never showed to the public before. I think this is the appropriate time to do so.
HORIZON PERFEKT on ILFORD XP2 • Film developed and negatives were scanned at a local photo lab (not known).

Took these photographs of an old fisherman in Batu Gajab, Ipoh, Malaysia on one early morning during my trip to Ipoh Malaysia.

|Sunset Factory House|
I heard about the new release of Google's new Snapseed app i.e. Snapseed 2.0 which is an awesome upgrade from the first version. With great UI, fast rendering time and so much more features to offer that you will get blown away. What's more? IT"S ABSOLUTELY FREE!
So I took the opportunity to take some sunset pictures right after work and this is one of the few shots. All post-processed in Snapseed 2.0
I've always enjoyed using this mobile photo editing app and now I love it ever more. Below are 2 more processed of the same picture in Black & White and 16:9 panorama crop.
And here's another shot I made of a parked excavator, with my iPhone 6 Plus on Chrome mode with HDR on.
|Post-processed on the Original|
|Post-processed on the HDR|
Coming back to the 2 post-processed photos, I would say both look good but the HDR version has more details and vivid colors. Howsoever, the down side on processing the HDR image on iPhone is that the image pixel size is relatively smaller than the original version. Personally I want large pixel size and in case I want to print it on a A3 size for example, the image can be enlarged without any loss in details.
Before we go, here's a 38-minute video by The Grid on Snapseed 2.0. Check it out.

|Pongal Festival 2015|
It's that time of the year for harvest and the local Indians are celebrating their Pongal Festival. Light decors were set up along the newly constructed Campbell Lane.
The rising hot sun shone its blazing light upon this street and I positioned myself where the green colored vase-shaped lamp blocked the sun, hence created such halo glow.
