New Supreme Court Building

Opposite Funan Mall, along North Bridge Road, the new Supreme Court Building ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supreme_Court_of_Singapore#Supreme_Court_Building ) came into operation in 2005.

I think of it as the UFO Building, but the saucer is supposed to be a "modern interpretation of the dome." Tall building in the left background is the Swissotel Stamford, which is right on top of City Hall MRT station. 

  • Nikon D7000, 35mm f1.8
  • At 35mm, f2, ISO 1600, 1/30 seconds
  • Manual exposure, center-weighted meter, incandescent white balance
  • Picasa: Straighten, crop, auto contrast

Incandescent white balance is suitable for many night scenes, because of the yellow light from street lamps and interior building lights. In this case, it also helps deepen the blue of the evening sky (7:40pm).

It was quite dark at the time, the photo is exposed about 8 to 16 times (3 to 4 stops) brighter than the actual scene. I was just trying my luck, didn't expect the colors to come out so nicely, because it was so dark that I couldn't see the colors.
