I'm ok with any Saturday, just so long as it doesn't go beyond noon. Suggest a central location like Botanic Gardens.

hey guys, think will be setting it at 15 sep
just right, will definitely be more free then as well
let me know if there are violent objections

some things to discuss leisurely, since it's still a long time away:
1)lunch or no lunch
2)timing (depending on 1 as well)

location would most likely be as what creampuff suggested, sbg is a good central location
maybe if i can find out more info on istana woodneuk before then and you guys are game
we can venture there, it is a very ir-photogenic place

I will be there with my son tomorrow from around 8.30am - 9am onwards. If anyone needs to buzz or sms me - 96861414 (Denis)

Those who are driving to SBG can park along Tyersall Ave or the Botanic Gardens visitor centre nearer Nassim Rd. We can meet either at the visitor centre or for the benefit of those coming in from Holland Rd, outside the Orchid Garden entrance ($5 entry).

Whether taking IR or Macro, a tripod would be a good idea to bring along. Plus memory cards and batteries. See you all there tomorrow.

looking good!

except for the last one, suddenly got funny streak, perhaps not so obvious in first two, seems like it's there
does look like the lens you're using, can't remember which one but it's a pancake, think 43mm or something? is ir friendly :thumbsup:

all of them are fine, actually, ir is after all subject to personal interpretation
you seem to be getting better results than snowy, i wonder why

can use shadow/highlight recovery tool in pscs2 to bring out the skies under highlights =)
cheers!
