I was there a little earlier before meeting you guys up at HF Macs. Always nice meeting new faces, and good to see a few "senior" members around.
Congratulations all winners of the 1st Pentax Photo Comp!


A shot of the broadwalk slightly after first light. Nice and quiet, and enjoying the morning breeze.


The Harbour Front with the vessels docked.
I think Starcruise's @the back, but it's moving along ...​

All these cropped 16-9.

Quay Cranes

Used to climb these, having gone up to fix some RFID equipments.
Caught these while the day's breaking.


Resorts World

Was thinking of panning with the FA, but got lazy.
Here's a shot of the frontal view​

Heads down ... that seems to be the typical younger crowd these days.
Maybe looking up, and equipped with a Pentax camera, they'll see interesting things other than their feet or ipod/iphone. :p


And of course, not forgetting my favourite subjects -


Yes, FA77 doesn't have a closer focus, but it compensates that with shallow DOF and buttery bokeh.
I hope I didn't do that badly with this lens ... ;-)

5 of these shots using the 77.​

Great photos all round, guys and those prizes..whew!
Looks like you all had a great outing. Sorry I can't join in. Busy plus a little under the weather too.
The FA77 is alluring but I am still happy with the DA70 2.4 :)

Sorry guys due to work, today unable to attend the outing.
Thanks to Supersimon27 to collect the prize on my behalf.

Nice shots from you guys. :thumbsup::thumbsup:
I like the 1st pic of hjbyeo, if can clone away the flag will be perfect!

Simon your pics are getting better, framing & composition are good too.
Like your #1 reflection & the Sentosaaaaaa.

Waiting to see the pics from the rest. ;p

FengWei, as usual, the Pentaxian jump-up pic rocks!

Simon, I am really surprised you managed to squeeze that pole and its reflection into the picture #1. And #9 was quite a spot.
Anyways, I don't think I'll be able to tame this 8-16. But I may just get the 10-17 as a fun lens to have.

Just in case FF comes along, you'll be ready with 77. BBB!

Hi, thank you. My pp workflow is super simple 1. Clone? I don't know how to clone such a big flag off!! :-(

Too bad we didn't get to see you in person and the sigma 500 handheld!

Thanks Greg. Can wait for the "12-35mm" that pentax might be coming out .

8mm is very difficult to compose . Sometime I tot ok with my cam screen but then after go back look at computer screen , found a lot of unwanted "thing" all inside ....

My Sigma is a "L" version .... that's Y got the red ring :p .... It's a sticker that I paste for all my lens lah

I am considering to get a fisheye too . But then 10-17 is a bit too exp for me ... was looking at samyang 8mm fisheye , as the review are quite good . But then I can't imaging me trying to compose with another 8mm .... prime some more ....

I like yr 1st photo (the one after the 1st light) and Quay Cranes.

In-fact last night gummy and me was still discussing should we go down early to catch the 1st light . Then we realize it was 1am + already ..... -.-'"
