    The first picture has excellent colour. I like the softness of the picture. Excellent. I believe you've taken this pic at a good time of the day when the sky is deep blue.

    I like the blue that's been casted on the buildings and the floor. it's really nice. Gives a peaceful feel, but at the same time a bit lonely also. but they are great pics.

    hi hong, thanks for the reply...

    but i have this burning question that im trying to find the answer for..

    if u notice ur foto, all the "dimmer" lights like the lights coming from the office windows are all nice and sharp and small...

    but the brighter lights, Eg, the HITACHI tower logo, (on the left)

    and the UOB plaza Logo, they are brighter, and hence not as clear as they have this "halo" effect...

    is there anyway to take long exposure, but at the same time not have this bright halo effect for the brighter lights?

    Actually those images above not too sharp, see below new one, too prevent the star effect, use a bigger aperture, like f2 or f2.8 in your s45

    ah thanks for the reply... so r u saying use larger aperture, and faster shutter speed? so more light can go in, but not for so long as to create "Star" effect?

    hmm i see... but then the depth of focus would no longer be as good.....
