This photo shows the great contrast between the traditional small houses of Singapore and the new architectural complexes rising everywhere. This is the "DUO complex", designed by Ole Scheeren and recognized with a Silver award in the "Best Futura Project" category at MIPIM Asia Awards 2012. The brown tower is the Parkview Square Tower, still one of the most expensive office towers in the city.

For lovers of architecturs as me this place is really a paradise... spent almost 3 hours in the area, and I still feel I didn't do enough.

The city-state of Singapore has over 4,300 completed high-rises, the majority of which are located in the Downtown Core. In the city, there are 59 skyscrapers that rise higher than 140 metres (459 ft). Three buildings share the title of tallest building in Singapore: United Overseas Bank Plaza One, Republic Plaza and Overseas Union Bank Centre. The three towers, which share the title of 106th-tallest building in the world, are each 280 m (919 ft) tall. There is a height restriction of 280 metres (919 ft) for structures in the central business district (only Raffles Place, Marina Bay Sands, Kallang River, Kallang and Mountbatten) of Singapore because of the proximity of Paya Lebar Airbase.

Singapore's Central Business District where I captured it from the Marina Bay Sands just before sunset. Thank you for the Stars and Comments...and welcome to Singapore :D

Sunset was unbelievably colorful this evening – I had not planned to shoot sunset was planning for blue hour but ended up with a nice pink surprise.

 

I am not sure what the purpose of the structure is as its open air with three openings and nothing inside. One of the other ends has a great view of the Marina Bay Sands and Singapore Flyer. But sadly there is a monster triple headed flood light that destroys any nighttime shot :-)

This was not my morning planned photo – I had planned to shoot the Singapore city skyline from one of the docks. But there was early morning activity on the bay and a boat was docked right where I had planned to shoot.

 

So Plan B, I returned to the Dragonfly Bridge at Gardens by the Bay and hoped for a nice sunrise scene.

The Marina Barrage is a dam in Singapore built at the confluence of five rivers, across the Marina Channel[3] between Marina East and Marina South. It was officially opened on 1 November 2008. It was Singapore's fifteenth reservoir. It provides water storage, flood control and recreation. It won a 2009 AAEE award

After 3 days worth of cold wind and rain, i manage to get a clear shot of the sunset over Sunny Singapore.

This photo was taken near Chinatown , Singapore. Experimenting with longer exposure in manual mode.

 

Singapore is a photographers paradise with so many wonderful viewpoints.

 

This is from Marina Barrage on the edge of the city on the Straights of Singapore. It is a very easy area to access and heavily frequented by locals enjoying the cool breezes and city views.

 

The challenge of this photo beyond weather is waiting for the area to be free of people and timing the water fountain lights. The water fountain cycle is rather short, so to overcome this I used a ND filter and 30 second exposure. This left the lasting water impressions and those walking through were not captured.

The beautiful Marina Bay with the Marina Bay Sands on the left and the Singapore Flyer (Ferris Wheel) on the right of the photograph. In the centre of the photograph is the Garden by the Bay.

This is a very thrilling experience due to the fact that i'm afraid of heights.

 

During our stay in Singapore, we purchased a ticket to ride on its famous cable car that crosses the Singapore River. From afar, i thought that it is not that high but on the actual ride, wow, i just cant keep my eyes wide open.

 

Thanks to this sunset that wiped away, for a little second, my fear.

 

This is the story of this shot.

 

Thank you for reading and i hope you'll follow my future posts. :)

An overview of Singapore's bay

From the top of the Marina Sands Skypark, you can get an amazing view of the Singapore Flyer and the Helix Bridge. The light stream from the cars racing down the highway is also pretty cool! My friend William and I caught this amazing view last week.

 

This is the view from the top of the Marina Bay Sands (Boat Hotel) looking away from the sea towards Singapore

Marina Bay is a bay near Central Area in the southern part of Singapore, and lies to the east of the Downtown Core. Marina Bay is set to be a 24/7 destination with endless opportunities for people to “explore new living and lifestyle options, exchange new ideas and information for business, and be entertained by rich leisure and cultural experiences”. It is here where the most innovative facilities and infrastructure such as the underground “common services tunnel” are built and where mega activities take place.

This bridge connects the Chinese Garden and Japanese Garden “islands” in Singapore. In the background is the 7 story pagoda.

The two gardens are very large with many things to see.

 

Getting this photo involved the right light and the bridge being empty of people. Two things that are hard to control.

 

Doing homework and researching before a trip pays off large when you have limited time on the ground.

I shoot with a Sony RX 100 with a fixed 28-100mm lens and to capture this complete view requires a much wider lens. My solution was to shoot 8 portrait shots and then merge together in Lightroom.

 

There is a very short window to capture a blue hour shot in Singapore – it’s a balance between the right sky, brightness, color, city lights, people and walkways lights timing. I choose to shoot before sunrise as there are less people.

 

This shot was basically at the end of Bayfront Link next to Marina Bay Sands

I was setup for doing a city shot across the bay, but when I saw the orange light, I was like a moth drawn to flame and ran over to grab this shot.

 

This is the Helix Bridge for pedestrians. At nights its illuminated in a purple color, but early morning nothing. In the background is the Singapore Flyer which is illuminated all night long.

 

During normal Singapore Flyer operations, the wheel is always moving and people get on and off while in motion and only stopping for special needs. After hours, the wheel remains illuminated allowing for nice stationary (non motion blur) images.

The show will be on every Saturday from 6 June to 9 August 2017.

This photo is from Gardens by the Bay on the Dragonfly Bridge.

 

This bridge is very popular and that causes a challenge for night shots. While the bridge is steel, the deck is wood and vibrations are quickly transferred to a tripod. Knowing this, I took a lot of shots in hopes of getting one. This is a single shot, not HDR just past sunset during the very short Singapore blue hour.

 

You may not see what I see... Marina Bay Singapore should provide serious photographers with a new window of opportunities...

Happy shooting everyone!
