    I only like the 3rd and 4th ones. The 1st two doesn't catch my eyes like the other 2 does.

    well the 5th is not bad too... but find that the dunno what thing on the sea surface at the left of the pic is disturbing. The DOF for the 6th pic... is like neither here nor there. maybe a deeper DOF or a shallower DOF might be interesting?

    yes that was a good shot. I would love it more if the tree is in teh circumfrence of the quarry. let the blueness of the water bring out the bare branches.

    as for the 6th pic.. intention was to get a shallower DOF ..
    was using F2.8 and macro mode on my F601z already is there anything else which i can do to get a shallower DOF?

    Hi, first of all, I would like to say that your shots are well taken. It really brings out the 'wow' factor of Ubin. In fact, I was there last Sat but didnt bring my camera along. I was there just to hike with my friends. Eh, do you have a map of Ubin? Cos last Sat when I was there, I tried to bring my friend to the quarry site but I just couldnt find the place. There was also no directional signs to lead you to the quarry. From jetty to the quarry, how long is the walking distance?

    Sigh... I'm afraid there is nothing much to be done. DC's DOF is very limiting. Carry on shooting and dun let it worry you too much. Enjoy yourself in the procedure.

    Tks Pokka, u can get a map from any of the bicycle shops ard the jetty ... The nparks info kiosk oso has a more simplified map.
    yup u r right there are no directional signs for quarry .. as most of them are already fenced up.. well at least officially.
    To trek to quarry would be a definite killer becos of the distance (not sure how far, depends on which one u go to i guess), terrain and the HOT sun. Suggest u rent a bike.

    Thanks! I'll be goin to Ubin again (this time a pure photographic expedition). I'll be getting the maps from the bicycle shop, hopefully they will obliged. I can't rent a bicycle because I have friends who can't cycle and so we have to walk. Will the shop owners still give us maps even though we are not renting bicycles from them?

    If I were you, I'll talk to those rent-a-van services over there. Ask them to provide a, say 5hrs plus, ride at a price shared by your group. I think it might be cheaper then renting bicycles.

    Walk..... sigh........
    AG........ let take a van next time.....

    Ok.. before I go OT, let get back to the main topic.

    black and white sounds not bad, but i think for this one colour will be nicer... hmmm.... maybe can try take from the back of the man? say, only part of the back of the head of the man (terrible english here) is captured on one corner of the photo? just a suggestion, hehe.... nah, dont think it will work.
