Pandan Gardens Leisure Park

I always drove by this part of AYE and notice the strange walkway. Today, finally found time to come down specifically to take a look as well as take some pictures. From now onward, whenever I blog on any parks, I’ll try to make a point to take a picture of the local map for future reference.

The Pandan Gardens Leisure Park is just situated beside the Sheng Hong Temple.

The park is not very big and most of it was actually running and cycling tracks but shaped very interestingly.

And like all parks, I will always try my best to look for macro opportunities. Unfortunately, there is not much chances, for such a small park.

More HDR @ Sentosa, Imbiah Lookout

Look my family to Sentosa again, 2nd time in 2 weeks. Originally intended to go Marina Barrage to fly kite but the surprising hot weather in the morning (good for photography though) made us changed our mind. Thanks to the Sentosa Islander pass, Sentosa is a good backup plan anytime 🙂

Sentosa has been around for so long that (other than new attractions like RWS) almost every angle has been taken. Hence I decided to play around with some HDR post processing again. I still prefer more ‘natural’ but vibrant HDR as compared to other-worldly-surreal HDR.

If only the Merlion can rotate constantly… will prefer it to look to the right

On the way back to the Central Beach Station from Imbiah Lookout. Again, if the Merlion can turn to face me, it’ll look much better 🙂

I wonder how to get on board this truck… it is a very different form of ‘transport’ option available.

 

HDR Photography @ West Coast Park

Came across some shipbuilding or maintenance activities off West Coast Park and decided to give the ships and barges some make over.

A friend asked me why I like to do fake photography such as IR and HDR. My reply was that I’m not particularly interested in these. It is just that I like to make the best of my photography trips or sessions.

If the scene is nice, I’ll just follow with normal photography. If not, I’ll try to salvage some compositions by converting them to black and white or Sepia. If not, I’ll try infrared filter and lastly, HDR if all else fails.
