532 Chinatown

View in Large

Singapore's Chinatown is an ethnic neighbourhood featuring distinctly Chinese cultural elements and a historically concentrated ethnic Chinese population. This is one of the oldest parts with the backdrop showing glimpses of modern era and the most popular area among tourists.

The shot was taken from top floor of HDB block 532. I was accompanied by flickr maestro himself Daniel along with my other new buddies Reggie, Jiang & Hock How

The shot was created by tonemapping single RAW image in Dynamic Photo and finishing touch was provided in Photoshop. The moon was there at the top but not clear as in the shot. It was enhanced to complete the shot.

This shot is special to me because:

1. This is last shot of my very well served Nikon D80 been sold today.
2. This shot is the 50th consecutive shot of mine hit Explore.
3. This shot resulted in 50,000 view in my photostream.

    This I love! The saturation suits perfectly! Did you push it in a HDR sort of way?
