Hi there,

I want to test taking photos of:

1) waterfall with rocks as background.

2) using 10 stop Neutral Density filter.

Any recommendation where is a good place to shoot 1 & 2 above ?

Thanks

Go to Singapore polytechnic during heavy rainfall... you will see water gushing down some of the stairway... that is one cool man make waterfall :)

Anyway, just did a short shoot in Botanical garden. Pretty nice man-make waterfall there.



Problem is... it is not all that tall.

I don't know if GBTB's waterfall is considered or not.... The main problem with this one is that there are many tourist shooting wide angle... if you go too close you will get stares from behind.. oh, not forgetting the 'mist' made by the waterfall.

A short trip to Kota Tinggi? Preferable not during weekend, otherwise it might be crowded.

Very nice photo.

TS, the nearest natural ones you can find are in Malaysia.

The pro photographers go out of the way, wait days, seasons to capture that shot we all go ooooh. Yes, there's the occasional opportunity shot, but it's not by chance the photographer is at the location.

Had you try the waterfall at Grand Hyatt Singapore Hotel, it about a three stores high but you need to call and check if you could take a photo there. The waterfall is next to the hotel car park.
