    did you tell them, "I like to take portrait too, since you guys are there, can take some photos of you too?"

    So good can see sunrise from your balcony. My house is so enclosed.

    Btw you got check if your neighbour is shooting you with their camera or not? How they know you are shooting out of the window?

    Hmm.... The title of "queen of sunrise" should go to a friend of mine instead. She captures the sunrise almost every morning from her bedroom window with her hp. she happens to share the same surname as u so why dont u shoot sunrise daily? U can be "king loo of sunrise" n she "queen loo of sunrise." ok,i am lame.

    Hang a sign outside your window "I'm taking sunrise! Can't you give me some peace!! Whoever you are! Please mind your own business.. I'm not interested in your $ or whatsoever"

    FYI, can always see sunrise at my window, and I can be at the Punngol end shooting sunrise in 15 mins time if I want to.

    btw, "loo" also has another meaning in English, and in Chinese, may not sharing the same surname.

    so is 卢 or 鲁 or 陆?? second sound should be 卢, same as mine, and if same dialect group, most probably have to call me Ah Gong (my middle name ranking is very senior)

    I am sure some people will do that, and do a 100% crop to see the IQ if their pictures. I think bros here better think twice if want to do that.
    I always do it to check both IQ of lens and cam ... but I aim at the aircon instead of the windows....

    you mean there is something wrong with taking photos out of your window?

    if i can see your dwelling from where i am, then shouldn't the onus be on you to cover up, if you want your privacy?

    i remember quite a few cases all over the world where people are arrested for being naked in their own house

    http://www.infowars.com/man-arrested...-in-own-house/

    it is a tough thing, because there are people who expose themselves deliberately

    One time, at around 10+pm.... I was at the top of a mutil-level carpark next to my block. Armed with a tripod and my 70-200mm with TC, I was taking photos of the Moon. After about 10mins... I notice someone standing behind a window from another block of flats, staring at me. So, I look at the person, pointed towards the moon..... trying to show that I'm taking photos of it.... that person saw me noticing him/her, when and hid behind the curtains.

    I move off 5mins later just incase needing to explain myself to the men in blue....

    The idiotic neighbor must hv watched some hollywood spy/terrorist movie on the shortly b4 they spotted you doing the similar thing on balcony. You should hv asked to take a group photo with the police at the balcony for the neighbor to see.
