This is the first picture from my recent trip to southeast Asia. A view from the pool located in 51th floor of Face Platinum Suites in Kuala Lumpur. A spectacular view with Petronas Towers as a natural focal point.

Indeed spectacular, Erling, a sight from the pool made it even more attractive to look at.
Good afternoon,

Hello Erling
I have a problem with the pool. That high up looking down....I don't think so. Still a very impressive view from up on high.


Hello Erling,

What a starter of a shot!
The photograph looked excellent as a thumbnail but full size, when the figures become apparent, it becomes amazing!
I like how the figures encourage us to survey the wider scene, from the shadows of the 51st floor, to the sunlight on the Petronas Towers!

Are there any guards to the swimming pool, to prevent anyone falling over?

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Erling,
What a beautiful photo of the Kuala Lumpur skyline with the famous twin towers well placed at left. The colours and light are amazing and the clarity is superb as a result. Excellent inclusion of the people in the swimming pool in the foreground.

Hi Erling
hey where have you been? I guess you've been in Malaysia.
can you tell me - do you have to rent a room for the night to be able to swim in this pool? Or can anyone just go and enjoy the pool? this would be a great experience. Very cool photo with the combination of shadow and light. the city backdrop and the blues are A+ looking forward to more

Ciao Erling
la foto mi piace molto, ma io non riuscirei mai a stare al posto di una di quelle persone, la mia paura supera anche il piacere del panorama.

Fine iconic scene with the roof pool and the view from there. Well taken.


Hej Erling,
Vilken fantastisk bild. Byggnaderna i sig, och inte bara Petronas-tornen, är spektakulära, men att se dem från det här perspektivet är enastående. Vilken otrolig utsikt från poolen. Alla vyer av storslagna landskap bör ha något iögonfallande i förgrunden för att fungera på ett foto, men jag hade inte väntat mig att få se badande som blickar ut mot KL:s skyskrapor på detta vis. Dessutom är ljuset och färgtonerna mycket vackra. Detta måste ha varit en unik upplevelse.

Hello Erling,

The couple has a very nice view about the skyscrapers.
You chose a very well angle this create depth and perspective.
Also pleasant of colours and sharpness.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice Sunday,

Hello Erling, very good photograph of this beautiful and interesting composition with the pool with views, very well captured in this beautiful image, with good sharpness, depth, light, color and quality. Very good and interesting work perfectly done, my congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.

Good night and happy beginning of the week.
Best wishes from the south of Spain.

Hello, Erling!

Fantastic view from this pool, but not for those who are afraid of height! The skyscrapers in the background look impressive and I like the colors with which you captured this beautiful urban scene! Wonderful job!

Hello Erling

Singapore has a similar rooftop pool so I guess KL decided it had to follow suit. Not a bad view of the city and you were lucky the Indonesian fires didn't leave a thick hazy smog across the city. The twin Petronas Towers at left provide a strong focal point. Tfs!

Hello Erling,
There is a swimming pool a bit similar like this one somewhere in Singapore but I haven't heard of this one before.
The location and the view are very spectacular. Awesome!
I really like the uniform colour of the high-rise on this photo and this in a nice contrast with the darker foreground in the shade.
What when too many people jump into the water and the pool runs over ? :)
Best regards, Paul

Oi, Erling!

Vista fantástica, deve ser um bom lugar para relaxar. O contraste entre a parte mais sombreada no primeiro plano e o bonito fundo com os arranha céus iluminados por uma luz dourada deixou a foto bem bonita. As pessoas foram uma boa inclusão.

Hi Erling

Should be amazing to have a bath here on top of the skyscrapper overlooking the city!

Wooow! Superb! It's just a dream for us, Erling! What could be better? Once upon a time I was in similar waterpool on the 7nd floor in Bangkok.
The colors of the background are superb! I am going to Malaysia in December.

Hi Erling,
Amazing view on Kuala Lumpur with Petronas Towers and others smaller skyscrapers. Must be quite expensive hotel with swimming pool in 51th floor opposite the towers. But I think it was worthed to get this picture.
Great shot with perfect colors, light and sharpness.
Best regards,
