Penang Jetty

When in Penang, there are a few areas of interest worth visiting. Of note is the Penang jetty, which is a collection of jetties close to each other.

The B+W processing of the Sony A7R images was done using Capture One Pro 8 from the Sony RAW file, rather than in-camera, as it allows me to select the look I would like.
