A Small Collection of Photos

It has been 6 months since I acquired the EOS 400D. Over that period, many photos have been taken and of course, experiences gained. Like that famous saying “Practice makes perfect” (Though that’s theoritically incorrect).  

Anyway, here’s some pictures (mostly Night photography) over the 6 month span.

This was taken from indoors in a dark room with a tripod. I wanted to capture the busy-ness of the highway at the time of the night.

I took this shot during a night cycling trip of mine. Really like how the lights get nicely reflected on the water. The white light that’s illuminating from the background is from the Golf course that’s about 1KM away.

The road nicely forms a cross, with buildings planted on each of it’s corners. Note the lights that the back, that’s the golf course I was talking about in the previous picture.

Many of you readers might have seen this picture (or something similar) on postcards. Oh no, this wasn’t used for any of those photocards.

I took this by the waterfront of Singapore river just like any other photographer out on that same day, trying to capture and frame this shot.

No, there’s nothing wrong with the picture. I was inspired by one of the monochrome out-of-focus Vista wallpapers. Decided to try it out and here’s the result! Currently using it for my desktop. \p/

Alright, that’s all for now. I know this post is rather mundane, with the technical specs and all ^___^;

  1. The duck and seagull… lol. DUCK HUNT!!! with a camera =3.

    Nice night pics, especially the one of Harbour Bridge (I demand that adun release his photo of it D=).

    Damn that seagull cracks me up.

  2. you have some nice photos here, id like to see some more macro shots or perhaps more abstract shots from you in the future if you get around to it :D

  3. @Sneaks: Thanks! I’m still very new to the whole photography thing. Have yet to get much chances to try out macro shots.
