    thanks melvin! glad these photos found favour with u..

    i took them while the vehicle came to a standstill in one of many Little India's trafficlight.

    the ISO should be 800, f2.8, FujiFilm S2Pro, JPEG Fine, Auto WB.

    1). open the image up in PS7 or up.
    2). Desaturate the photos.
    3). Colour Balance and adjust to favoured colour settings.
    4). adjust Curves, bump up the contrast.

    Viola!

    the PS part is secondary, just a colour preference.

    the main thing is in getting these images first.

    use a lens that has nice bokeh and is able to shoot in low light condition. i used the 17-35 f2.8. the way it rendered the out of focus shots is a bonus.

    it is always raining lately, u can try it on ur window pane and experiment!


    cheers!!!

    very unique and refreshing series!..

    just 2 comments:

    about the typography: it seems the words are potraying feelings in a poetic way. i feel when you right-align the words it doesn't bring out that kind of feeling of the words. hmm..maybe just a personal opinion

    for photo honghong004.jpg some white words are not visible against the while raindrops..

    The use of colour is beautiful in the last one. A very nice myriad of colours in harmony with interesting shadows drawing focus. Do you sell prints? I am actually interested in the last one without the words.
