Hi

my chinatown pics are from an earlier trip there in late Jan, i think sometime after food street was opened. Wanted to capture the crowds, but apparently, on the day i went, it was a weekday, and not considered as crowded as on weekends.....but oh well, nebermind ;P

As early as 6 something, pple started streaming into the streets of Chinatown, particularly food street, for dinner....


pple.........


pple...........


and more pple!!!!!!!

Hi

along food street, there are 2 different modes of dinner - one open air style, by the road side, eating hawker centre like food, and the other, in posh restaurants just beside the street. Which would you choose?

Hi Reddawn, nice shots. Is it a 20mm F1.8 lens? Handheld or tripod?

Hi

those with motion trails are all on tripod, ISO 100 long exposure. As for lens, i use both the Sigma 20mm f1.8 and the Canon 35mm f2 - the shots you see here are from both.......

nope....it was pretty bright around that area.....
i didn't use flash at all for this whole series....

this shot was taken by holding my camera high above my head - well i did prefocus, made sure exposure will be correct, and aim through viewfinder before raising the camera up slowly....to get a better vantage point for capturing more pple.....

Oic... I'm not sure if my G2 can put off such a shot without flash. I think the highest ISO the G2 can go is 400, but there will be lotsa noise present in the pic.

a great noise combater is to convert it to a black and white photo :) A G2 with ISO 400 should be able to do just as well there - in fact, mabe even better with the swivel LCD - you can take pics without being so obvious! :)
