    My plan is to have two pieces of paper with both the car/tel numbers and once we have 4 person arrive at meeting point, we set them off with whichever car is there first. Next 3 person arrive, we set them off and once we have the final four, we take off by cab. So the last few to arrive (and me, who will leave with last group) will have to share cab. I think this is only fair to those who arrive early? Yes?
    Sounds like a good plan

    That is actually possible....supposing start from Changi Beach Park can ride/walk along Changi Coast Road till hit the ECP connector and then go all the way to Marina Barrage. Thing is no idea how long it may take though starting the night before might work.

    *anyone care to comment on time required to clear that distance say...a leisurely ride or walk?

    Actually....if there are people willing to join me, i am very much interested in such a walk for the next time go to Marina Barrage sunrise. At most i will rent a foldable bike.

    I am going with 2 of my personal and long time friends. One of whom is a newbie. Will be driving but our MO is usually getting to barrage early at 6:15-6:30am. Do our setup. We like to take pre-dawn pics and also get all our equipment set up in advance as well as choose our angles.

    by any chance...what system are you guys bringing?

    If more towards one camp...possible for the guys to bring flash units so that can chain together if want to take a group photo.

    Things to take note:

    - There will be people there. Usually you will see some love birds there. So please be understanding and leave them alone and not make too much noise.
    - Sun will be rising from end facing the construction platforms. So get your cameras pointed in the right direction.
    - At any hint of rain, I will call it off and I will not be there.
    - There are many many places to get a vantage. It depends what you want to shoot:

    Top floor (R floor) - Good for a high vantage. But the outer railing and walls are quite high, limiting some of your view if your tripod is shorter. Good views of the city and the flyer and the sunrise..etc... Pics from this view:


    2nd floor - There is this balcony by the side that gives the perfect view to capture the lights on the bridge/dam. Pic:

    - 1st floor - You can capture a variety of views here, there are so many things to shoot:


    - On the dam - You will also get a very different view from the dam/bridge.


    Hope these help in giving you ideas on some of the angles available to you there.

    It is very early in the morning. Please be understanding and keep noise levels down to a minimum. Enjoy the serenity and quietness of the sunrise. Do not spoil it for the rest of us.

    I will probably miss the group photo as I need to leave a little earlier. And one thing, once the sun is up, you do not really need the flash anymore. And I will definitely miss the breakfast session also.

    Also, for drivers, please note that there are 2 car parks infront of the barrage. The normal one, and there is another one which is deeper.
    Try not to park in the deeper one as well as the first row of the normal one. If there is an event, they will come at around 7am and shut it out. They will announce over the PA to ask you to remove your car. Very very inconvenient. Happened to me one time. I had to leave my setup to my friend and move my car. Missed some good shots because of that.

    At the moment, I got one spot left for the last cab (coz stepwalker confirmed going there direct). Come join us at City Hall!

    I have updated the top-most thread with all the names (and will keep that as the most updated)
