Putrajaya International Fireworks Competition by Abd Halim Hadi
My name is Abd. Halim Hadi, lifestyle journalist in a leading newspaper based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I have been writing for about 10 years now. In working to visually get a good story, I often work with my fellow photographers until I got hooked up into photography. Photography has become my passion. Walking through the streets and taking pictures of beautiful moments brings me personal peace and satisfaction. It is my stress reliever and has caused me to observe life and appreciate the world in a totally different way. I like to share some of the photographs I recently took during Putrajaya International Fireworks Competition (PIFC) which was held in Wilayah Persekutuan Putrajaya, a newly developed administrative city of Malaysia, outside Kuala Lumpur. The competition was participated by six countries - China, United Arab Emirates (UAE), the United States, South Korea, France and Malaysia. An exciting 25-minute firework display judged on things such as presentation, structure and scale, colors, originality and music synchronization. Tens of thousands of people have gathered surround the waterfront to watch the sparkling array of color, light and sound during the last night of the competition. Putrajaya, the world's first intelligent garden city provides spectators with plenty of vantage points, modern building and unique monument. Home team (Blastmaster Sdn. Bhd) won the first place in this year challenge. Note : The six landscape photographs were also taken in Putrajaya during sunset and sunrise. We'd like to thank Abd. Halim Hadi for sharing his photos. Visit his website for more of his work. If you want your work featured please on TotallyCoolPix please contact us and include some samples.
