That will be an great idea though.

I work at Chinatown so I can see it almost everyday. :bsmilie:

To add on: Due to the tsunami case, there will be no fireworks this year. Only Firecrackers.

I note that among all the places, Peopls's Park CarPark is the best ideal spot. Rather then you had to squeeze among each other at the roadside and you might not get good photo if you wan to use the tripod.

Need to be there damn early as alot of ppl cfm will be there. Too bad, when I open my office window, it another shophouses infront of me not the bridge, if not, I welcome you all come to my office to take pic. :sweatsm:


cheers cheers

Yo Josh,

Since you are working there, can you help to go there earlier to "chope" place at the People's Park Car Park for the Lumixers here or not? ;p

Come come.. I shall share with you all of where is the best spot!


This pic taken is from the carpark. 3rd floor. Mind that the area had cars moving up to the bar (Which the driver need to get the tickets) Dangerous.
But I stand at the corner to take it as its safer and more space. Having tripod wun be any problem.


Taken at the overhead bridge(left)

This on the right.
Though I can view it straight ahead but IMHO, I can capture much on the length like first pic. And alot of ppl will be walking up and down. Having the tripod might cause danger to others as well.


The corner was the best area. Behind the banner, there are alot of space which can squeeze in at least 6 ppl with tripod facing at the brigde.

How you all think? Hehe :sweat:

Somehow, I the colour damn red. I dunno is it my prob or wat, I just find it very red... Maybe the deco there. Hehehe
Just aint sure how to take a nice pic from the top.
Cheers

Try: http://josho.multiply.com/photos/album/12

Should be able to view ba... i think u need to clear ur cache first. :)

Sorry sorry :sweat:
Ohhh....can see liaoz...thankz a lot!

Looks like it is going to be rather messy if we take those photos at the various locations that you were at...

Anyway, will go there this weekend, and move ard should the location is not really that good.

By the way, what time will you be there har?

Is there any free parking around that area? ;p

the only bet spot I can view at is the first pic because its much clearer then the bridge whereas the decor will block the view.

Other then that unless you wan to try Chinatown Point over head bridge but its really too far to capture the firecrackers.
And also, I did a check on the area.. nowhere else is better then the location I found. Unless you wan to capture and squeeze with the ppl there on the road side. Which you be able to see clearly but from the point of capturing pic will be hard.

This is my point of view and survey. hehe

Carpark I dun think theres any free carpark wor... Timing. I aint sure. Wanna be kaisu typical Singaporean to be there ard 12-2pm then wait until evening. LOL.
