Hi, this is a collection of my landscape works around the island. I am hoping to select a couple nicer ones for large prints and wish that the CSers can help me with it. Please feel free to comment on the photos and if possible state the favourites among the novice attempts. :) Thankew! your help is much appreciated!

I've always wondered how photographers make thier pictures look so unique and make it stand out. Apart from compostion that make ur picturss stand out, what else did u do? i mean, what kind of filters did u use on ur cam? or isit achieved thru heavy photoshopping? im wondering if photoshop has any free plugins for mac that i can download, and if u know where, i'd appreciate the info. and yes, awesome pictures.

Spectacular results. Do you use any filters to produce these impressive photos? Is there any way to tell that the evening sky will be that dramatic? Thanks.

What you see is usually what the final product is. I use a ND grad filter, ND filter, a tripod and shoot in RAW. The convertor is important (at least to me) and there are several good ones out there including CaptureOne. For photoshop, i use curves (usually to lower exposure of skies slightly and levels to bring out alittle more contrast) and nothing of HDR and sort. Plugins-wise i use Edgesharp which i downloaded years ago. That's about it.

I thank you once again for your kind comments. =) btw, if you want free plugins for mac/pc (actions are non OS based), just do a search.

Appreciate those who select your favourites. :)

Psalm 19:1 “The heavens declare the glory of God, the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” - dramatic skies are not to be predicted. Anyway practical photography magazine has some good articles on landscape last month. My advice is don't leave until the last light has gone, usually the post sunset rays will bring out the red contrasty glows.

Hi JCYRHS,
just wondering what filter system do you use? Cokin ? Some of your shots are at 10mm and I understand the Cokin P system will vignette at 10mm unless you use the special cokin wide-angle adapter which can only hold one filter.

ps. oh yes my fav is the B/w changi beach, Yishun dam sunset(horizontal) and punggol beach sunset(horizontal)

Very nicely done, I must say..

You definitely have an affinity for rocks!

Anyways, I don't think there is much filters being used other than Grad ND.

Nice job, dude.. Love some of the shots! =)
