Ang Mo Kio Town Garden East, Night

This park/garden is next to the Ang Mo Kio MRT station (the station is out of the frame, on the left). Lots of steps to the top, which is why I've only been there a few times. 

The steps at the bottom make an interesting pattern, as do the apartment blocks at the top.

Managed by the National Parks Board.

  • Nikon D7000, 24mm f1.4
  • At 24mm, f2, ISO 1600, 1/15 seconds
  • Manual exposure, center-weighted metering, 2500K white balance
  • Picasa: Crop, auto contrast

Pretty standard, straightforward, night scene. Trick is finding the location to take the photo, which will remain my secret (grin). There is beauty all around, you only need to look. No point photographing the same well-known landmarks that everybody is photographing. 

You get decent depth of field at f2 with the 24mm lens, much more than with a 50mm lens, so you don't have to be afraid of using it. This is close to the limit of hand-holding for the camera and lens - ISO 1600, 1/15 seconds and f2.
