This shot was taken with a Nikon D700 in Singapore, 2010.

A panorama stitch of 8 shots view from Marina Bay Sands Skypark. Weather was turning stormy and this was taken just before the arrival lightning sightings, signalling the near arrival of a thunderstorm. We are a country that never sleeps, full of light pollution. Sometimes, I just wish that there is a light free place in SG to see stars and the milky way, but alas, there is none. If u happen to know of such a place in SG, please share. Complete darkness in an area do not equate to conditions for stargazing, as the nearby lights can be so strong and overpowering that it lit up the skies within human range of sight. Sigh…

Another shot taken from the MBS Skypark. This shot simply shows how dense a concrete jungle Singapore is. Packed with HDBs and high rise amidst “forests” and the distant Indonesian mountains, this shot is a simple illustration of how packed and small country we are in.

A shot taken from the MBS Skypark before a storm. It’s never easy to run a business and moreover survive in Singapore due to the intense competition we face. Lack of natural resources, we can only depend on trade and industries to drive our economy. This 3 skycrapers sort of resemble a podium for the top 3 in any competitions. But with dark clouds and a gloomy economic outlook coming, it’s really hard to predict the outcome in the near future.

The sunset in town was extremely vibrant. This sudden burst of orangy red cast onto the clouds against Central at Clarke Quay was a sight to see. Complement this scene with a boat emerging from under the bridge. I call this emerging. One – Emerging of the boat. Two – Emerging of the clouds against Central lit up by the sun.

When do you ever see only 2 persons right at this location nowadays? Never! Ever since the opening of the MBS and with the influx of massive amount of tourists, this location is packed almost 24 hours everyday. Even at night, there would be a lot of people crowding around here. This is a panoramic stitch of 6 shots.

Taken on a peaceful morning sunrise from Esplanade. This panorama was taken before the palm of the MBS was completed. Coupled with the moon setting during dawn, I name this as the Rise of the Decepticons. Why? I never liked casinos as they destroy families of gambling addicts. This 3 towers are deceptive of the real intentions of what was behind. With the completion of the palm, the decepticons have taken over power from the autobots once again and evil shall rule. Lol…

A project that will be ongoing to restore some of my best works from the day I started taking photos.

Not exactly landscapes, this shot was taken off the interior of Festive Hotel from top down. Added in some miniature effect, placing emphasis on the 3 tables in the centre surrounded by the sofa, portraying an emptiness that surrounds.
