Hi all, this is my first post in this forum.This is my first attempt using a DSLR (it was borrowed from a friend).



Caught this moment at my boyfriend's POP.

The smiles and exhilaration from the guys are so true and priceless. It seems like the 3 months of 'suffering' has come to an end and worth it :)

Taken with: Canon EOS 400D
Focal Length: 105mm
ISO Speed: 400
Aperture: f/9

Honest feedbacks please :)

Nicely captured of the emotion.

btw, there is no joy in NS, at least for me, the real joy will only come when the Army don't want you anymore.

the emotion here is the relief of suffering, temporary only anyway.

haha... funny one. We all share the same sentiment.... until reservist calls and they pay you your salary while you get to network with your NS friends... :)

Ahhh, i guess you are right. It's the relief, am finding the proper word to represent it. Thanks! :)

Other than the colors are at the dull side, this reminds me of my pop, haha.
I'm as happy as them, but not for the relief of sufferings but more of moving on to the next phase of life, towards becoming a man.

A moment of joy indeed.

POP is the end of a relationship... many friendships and camaraderies end here as we all go our separate ways... new one will be forge as we celebrated many lows and a few highs in this journey.

I did not hate NS nor do I like it, it is a necessity that we cannot live without. Now married with kid, it dawned on me what we guys are doing is a very important part of being a Singaporean..

BTW, I think close-up of the faces of these recruits would have capture the moment...

Yea, I think close up should be better, but I panic, haha :embrass:
