I'm a Singapore event photographer; specializing in corporate events, weddings and birthday parties.


MAS Building and Springleaf Tower

The Monetary Authority of Singapore, MAS Building ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monetary_Authority_of_Singapore ) is on the left. Springleaf Tower ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Springleaf_Tower ) is on the right. Near Tanjong Pagar MRT Station. 

I don't why but when I'm in the area, the sky is more-often-than-not blue, which is unusual for Singapore. 
  • Nikon D7000, 18-105mm f3.5-5.6
  • At 30mm, f8, ISO 100, 1/250 seconds
  • Program exposure, center-weighted meter, auto white balance
  • Picasa: Crop, auto contrast, shadows, straighten.
Scene was backlit by the sky, turned out under-exposed on my first attempt, so I pointed the camera down and did an exposure-lock on the trees. But this caused a bit of over-exposure. Fixed it later in Picasa with Shadows tuning. 

It's difficult to take photos of high-rise buildings. If you zoom out too much, there's a lot of clutter on the ground. If you zoom in too much, the top of the building is chopped off. Or if you zoom into the top, it's boring because there's nothing else around.

Luckily managed to get this angle, with some trees to balance out the picture, and no ground clutter.
