Nine Emperor Gods Festival 2009
Nine Pictures From The Nine Emperor Gods Festival
Ampang, 18th October 2009: Got Time For A Quick Pose? The annual Nine Emperor Gods Festival begins at the Ampang Temple
today. The celebrations will last for nine days and hundreds of thousands of devotees are expected. Last night, a special ritual
and procession was held to receive the deities. I caught this dragon dance at dusk when the fading sky retained a tinge of blue.
By using flash and a slow shutter, the ambient light cast an overlapping shadow of the motion. The result is a 3D-like 'cutout'
effect for the foreground subject. See more pics with photography tips in this special photo essay. See Next Pic
