DBS Marina Regatta

This dragon boat race was held at Marina Bay. DBS is a Singapore bank.

It looks like a traffic jam but it's due to the telephoto lens perspective compression. There's actually a lot of space between the boats.
  • Nikon D7000, 55-300mm f4.5-5.6 
  • At 300mm, f5.6, ISO 400, 1/180 seconds
  • Aperture priority, center-weighted metering, auto white balance
  • Picasa: Auto contrast, fill light
The 55-300mm is a relatively cheap consumer lens, but I think the image quality is fine. Much better than carrying around a heavy 70-200mm f2.8. Save that for indoors.
