Here are the pictures taken from Sheares Bridge.
Kinda sad with the results i got. I doubt it has much to do with the haze. Overall setting on the camera is bad and the noise i got even at ISO80 is just....noisy :cry: Well, comments will be great.

Picture 1.

Picture 2.

Picture 3.

Picture 4.

No 3, 4 & 5 shows the power of 12x zoom....
well done....

Try to play around with white balance... its pretty interesting....
Over all, 3 4 &5 are the better ones....

1 & 2 not so sharp.... I think tripod is shacking....

My suggestion:

If you want to take these photos with good effect, go on a day where you know that the weather and sky is clear.

Also, don't go too late. Try to be there around 6.45pm to 7pm, so that you will have enough time to do the set up, take some metering, check out your composition. The actual shots should be around 7pm onward, by 7.45pm, it will be too dark to shoot, the color effect will not be nice anymore.

Don't go on a weekend or public holidays, since you will see most of the buildings are dark dark...no light in the building, since minimum people are working over the weekend or public holidays.

Remember: Photography is all about light source and composition control....

Snap on mate, snap on....

Probably cause it was taken on the field than on the bridge, different angle?

Anyone knows why the water looks like solid ground? Especially 2nd pic. :dunno:
Solid ground look is due to long exposure.
The water was constantly moving, thus with a long exposure, the movement of the water blur to form a solid foundation.

If only we had flash, you would be able to see people ice skating around below the merlion. :bsmilie:

Have to play ard the white balance. Will be better in that sense. JD pointed out good point of the timing and day.

Ricky also pointed good explanation. Long explosure will make the water look like a floor. Just like those waterfalls, long explosure will make the water smoother and whiter like milk. :D

Flowing towards the CBD:




[/QUOTE]

Nice pic. :) For flowing towards CBD is that a speed boat? Cause 8 sec cannot get that... Is this camera u using FZ20? Dun think can get that effect with FZ20 8sec. Like the #1 shot too, sharp and nicely exposed. The flash is powerful yet did not over-exp the face, you did a bounce? Think for the last one its abit over-exposed, maybe a ND will help here. Just a suggestion
Sorry for asking so many qns.

Great shots Ricky, as usual your composition is :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Oh ya, Flowing Towards CBD, could be renamed "Enter The Dragon"? maybe looked liked a Dragon was swiming under the river.

Yup flowerpot99, I had to use another cam that could go beyond 8 secs for the shots. Used 30sec exposure. For shot 1, can use the slow sync mode on FZ20 to achieve the shot, where back is nicely lighted and yet subjects are nice and properly exposed. I used omnibounce on the flash so it would not be too harsh. Noted about last shot.. too burnt.. going to lower the exposure and edit into my original post. Thanks guys
