Accolades: Shortlisted in Nat Geo's final 30 shots for International Photography Contest 2009.

Masjid Selat Melaka is a new landmark in Melaka on the man-made island of Pulau Melaka near Malacca town. Masjid Selat Melaka is built along the coastline of Straits of Malacca, at the water level of the sea. So, in the evening at high tide, Masjid Selat Melaka looks like a floating mosque.

This shot was taken on the day of Eid ul-Fitr, often abbreviated to Eid, that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.Eid Mubarak to all my friends.

The shot is long exposure capture and single RAW file processed in photoshop.
