[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken a few hours after I arrived one late evening in Singapore. Jetlagged and could not sleep, I decided to lug my tripod and digicam for a nocturnal photoshoot along the Marina. I remember the night to be quite humid, it took several minutes before the condensation from cam disappeared. Singapore is an ultra-modern city, bland, efficient, and orderly.

The Fullerton Hotel right across the Singapore River is an amazing building in its own right. It was initially opened in 1928 as the Fullerton Building. There are various restaurants, cafes and clubs in the hotel that is worth spending some time in.

Very minor pp work save for resizing.

Have a good w/e folks.

Hi Danilo,
A very sharp capture of this noctural shot of Singapore by night.
Nice mixture of colorful lights reflecting in the water.
Perfect light management and an agreeale POV.
Well done.

Hello Danilo,

You show this just as I imagined it! I remember my son painting a wonderful picture when he was there and, of course, he had to go to Raffles for a Singapore Sling!!
I love how all the buildings are brought to life by the lights, and their reflections.
Lovely composition, with the riverbank and the bridge meeting, in the strong 'thirds' position, at the elevated blue skyscraper.

Have a lovely w/e,
Bev :-)

Hello Danilo,

This is a great night shot.
Very good chosen point of view.
Beautiful light and colors tones.

Warm greetings and best wishes,

Hello Danilo

This here is a work of art. Gallery quality for sure. Cannot find anything to say ........WOW.


Hi Danilo ,
An interesting shot and more interesting for me is the distortion which is quite amazing even with 18mm which makes 27mm at DX but still made this beautiful effect,the illuminated hotel looks beautiful,the FG tree makes a beautiful framing element while the reflection looks beautiful too,love to shoot nocturnal shots,I hope you must have enjoyed it!!

Best Regards

that's more like it. very imaginative, effective and I like the perspective distortions. Janos

Hi Danilo,

A great perspective you have opted for this nocturnal shot from the cityscape!

The POV and DOF are the technical aspects which make this work so showy and eyecatching. The sharpness and POV are well done and the clarity is nice. The lights add great charm to teh capture and the trees in the FG act as a great natural window. Well seen!

Have a nice weekend.

best greetings,

Boa noite danilo

Um abraço

Hola Danilo
Fantastica demostracion de una iluminacion nocturna , buena nitidez y bello colorido , encuadre fantastico , gran contraste de color , gracias por compartir

Buen dia
un saludo

Hi Danilo,
Very nice caught of view of this nocturne shot,
good reflection and light,
Picture very sharp and clear,
well presented and composed.

Hi, Danilo. The POV for this photo is the essence. Colors, reflections and perfect exposure makes it a very elegant Postcard. Cheers.

Well, that building looks interesting, no doubt.
I will photography it my next trip to Singapore in October, yes.
Fullerton Building is now one of the places I will go to after reading your note hahaha
Great use of a wide lens, the angle of your POV is appropriate and also your composition.
The only thing that bothers me is the lighted tree branches in the right, top and left sides... to me that is the issue that makes this one not be an awesome shot.

However, a great one Danilo :)

Hello Danilo,

Great shot, I like the way you have used the branches of the trees as a frame for the background. The photograph seems to have a natural HDR effect about it. Fantastic lighting and an allround good shot.

Well Done
