I walked over to the esplanade to walk around and see how the construction with the buildout of the skyline and the building around the Marina Bay Sands Hotel.
I didn't bring a tripod so everything I shot was handheld. The benefit of fast glass.
This is the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and Casino. I love how this looks. This is straight out of the camera but it looks like something I photoshopped. I little more noise than I typically like in my pictures... I actually realized when I got back to my hotel that I still had my 2 stop ND filter on. An amateur stupid mistake...but daily shooting helps you to learn to avoid these in the future. My Leica lenses are so fast that I actually need to shoot with ND filters during the day if I want to shoot then wide open, and I do. I currently use an ND2 on my Noctilux. I ordered an ND 6 from B&H in the US but it will take about 4 months to arrive. 60mm is not a very common size so they custom make them when you order. I use an ND4 on my 35mm Summilux. I have also ordered an ND4 for my 21mm Summilux.
The Merlion is under construction right now. I think this is a nice way to present the Merlion while under construction.
Home for the week...
This morning I got a couple of preview shots from Kayo Yamawaki who took them accompany an article being written about me (more on that later). This one was my favorite. You can see Kayo's other work HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today...
