Makansutra Gluttons Bay Food Court

Makansutra (AKA K.F Seetoh) started with food reviews and guides but they've branched out into eateries. ("Makan" means "eat" in Malay.) The Makansutra Gluttons Bay ( http://www.makansutra.com/eateries_mgb.html ) is next to the Esplanade Theatres.

It's a dedicated night spot, open only in the evening (4 or 5pm depending on the day of week) until after midnight (1 to 3am depending on the day of week).

You can see a father at the right side of the photo, chasing after his little kid. Buildings in the background are a cluster of high-rise financial buildings (including Standard Chartered), across the bay. Yes, they are very tall.

  • D7000, 18-105mm f3.5-5.6
  • At 18mm, f5.6, ISO 400, 1/45 seconds
  • Aperture Priority, center-weighted metering, auto white balance
  • Picasa: Crop, auto contrast, fill light

It's 7pm, still bright. Lighting was even enough for auto exposure to work reliably, so I didn't switch to manual. Set f5.6 to get decent depth of field.

I was actually at Marina Bay Sands earlier, walked one large circle from Raffles Place MRT to Marina Bay Sands to Esplanade to City Hall MRT. Was hoping to get some good photos of Marina Bay Sands but the sky wasn't cooperating. This unplanned photo was the best from the whole day.
