    The only reflection attempt I've made was very much early this year when I barely got my DSLR for a month


    During the twilight hour after sunset.

    Hmm because like when you only have a chance to capture a precious moment and you accidentally overexposed or underexposed it, then how? I don't know how to PP. Haha looks like YouTube will be my best friend soon.

    difficult to get total stagnant water luh, cause marina bay is not a small pond whereby water movement is very little.

    2 stops under/overexposure should be alright.

    RAW image will take all these in stride.

    which is why it's a rare occurrence (at least to me) to witness it...provided that I wake up early enough times..

    Very simple, just adjust the exposure during PP and you will have a correctly exposed photo. Shooting in RAW will help retain the details and make it easier to PP.

    Anything beyond 2 stops under, you can consider changing it to B/W liao...cos heavy PP will bring out too much noise.

    I don't take my chances, which is why I will still take my bed over getting there early in the morning to get reflections

    it was the last day of 2010, so together with a few friends, we decided to gather, shoot photos through the night.
