Aimlessly walking around Cityhall area after work on Sat. Got chased away by security guards, it’s common for me already, especially when they see tripod and some weird looking equipment, the Nodal Ninja 3 and the DSLR.

Tan Kim Seng Fountain

copy-of-360_fountain_final_tiny.jpg

“Tan Kim Seng came from Malacca to Singapore in 1840. He had a humble beginning but through perseverance rose to be a very wealthy man. He founded Kim Seng and Company, a trading house on Boat Quay. Tan Kim Seng was a leader among the Chinese; he was often asked to settle disputes among them.

On 18 November 1857 Tan Kim Seng offered a sum of $13,000 for a supply of water to the Town from Bukit Timah. This water was to be carried through pipes on the main roads in Singapore. The Secretary of State for India praised the public spiritedness of Tan Kim Seng” – Source

Non HDR (Normal Version)

A big change this time. I am experimenting with HDR and I got quite good results. This is the first 360 Pano HDR-style! Enjoy!

This is the famous sculpture “Large Reclining Figure”. This version is made of bronze (and weighs 4 tons!) by Henry Moore.

Civilisation Museum and Anderson Bridge

360_final_tiny8.jpg

“Rule #45238973, always hold on tight to your tripod and guard it with your life when taking Pano.” I was taking a pano right in front of the Merlion when some tourist accidently kicked my tripod. ISO1600 f/4 and at 1/10 sec, I thought, should be ok. WRONG WRONG WRONG! “Rule #7450965832, always retake when not sure!” It caused motion blur and there’s no way to have a nice pano. It’s ok, good reason to revisit Merlion for another Pano shoot soon. So here’s the Civilisation Museum and Anderson Bridge for now.

It was quite a fun trip today. Saw many photographers (some are in the pano) when I was taking the first Civilisation Museum pano shot. They should know or they’re thinking again, “why taking photo of the floor?” – now you know.

Needed to relax after a hard day’s work and what better ways to be doing that than taking PANO and some perspiring walking. Here’s Cavenagh Bridge and Fountain Square located near China Square Central. Both about 15 minutes walk from my office.

Fuk Tai Chi Museum Masked

output_mask_tiny.jpg

I actually took another set of the Fuk Tai Chi Museum as I noticed that when it came to the shot with PWC building etc in view, the shots will of course, be overexposed and so the idea is to merge and use this other sets of photos that has the same ISO, Aperture but different Shutter speed. This set is shot at 1/20 secs merged with the 0.3 secs shots thus the inside of the Museum looks clear (0.3) and so does the outside (1/20) with the outside buildings and details of the Museum’s roof viewable. The above is the first try. It’s done using Masking in Photoshop CS2.
