3 Image HDR/DRI Sepia + Cross Balance post-processing. ION Orchard, Singapore.


I didn't want total monotone/black and white processing for this shot, as ION Orchard to me is dynamic, alive, yet slick. Retained the original yellow lightings and mild blue tone post-processing to harmonise to this theory.


Like mirrors, the tile's reflections creates a spatial and "hardness" relief, between foreground to background establishment. Literally also creates a "road" towards indulgence, sin, fame and glamour; a reflection of one's life away from the norms (matte tiles) of his used-to-be boring lifestyle.


Took me a while to walk around this place, and reflect in deep thought. I know it has been photographed by thousands of budding photographers, so as my usual concious self tells me, what is different between mine and theirs, and what about this place that means to me? Seems like a weak link to play with post-processing and colour, but the heck with it. :) Shoot and enjoy the moment.
