    Cityscapes from Singapore

    Hi everyone.

    Thought I'd share some photos from Singapore, my home

    1. View from the Marina Barrage toward the Singapore CBD


    2. View over the Pan-Island Expressway


    thanks for viewing! I shall add more as I go along.

    Brings back great memories of a fantastic holiday, my wife and i had many night walks around the city and never felt so safe and amazed by the light shows and smelling, eating many a "satay"
    Comments and Criticisms are always appreciated.

    Thank You:

    John

    Thanks for dropping by this thread

    Glad you had a good time in Singapore and enjoyed the food!
    I see that your location states 'Tasmania', a place I've heard so many wonderful things about, but have never made the trip to see... one day... one day...!

    Would be good to see these in the critique forums, rather than the not for critique forum, so we could really start discussing them and give you some tips.

    Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated

    Thanks for that.
    I started the thread just with the intention of sharing some images, rather than opening it up for dissection and discussion on the various aspects of the image...
    Maybe at a later stage? For now I shall just post a photo occasionally to this thread.

    fair enough, but there are some aspects that could well be improved.

    4. The Biannual i-Light display around Singapore's Marina Bay.
    a month-long art installation mainly consisting of lights. Numerous exhibits scattered around the perimeter of the bay, stretching for several kilometres

    9. The Marina Barrage
    A dam built across the Kallang River, effectively turning the Marina Bay into a reservoir. This serves the government's philosophy of both safeguarding our precious water reserves, as well as creating places for residents to enjoy the water through water sports and so on.

    Thats the one thing i liked about Singapore, so much thought has gone into preserving the resources that the small country has, especially the Gardens with how everything is recycled and sustainable, the question i never got answered while i was there was how does Singapore power everything up, is it nuclear, hydro or coal because for a small country it sure uses alot of power to light things up.

    From what I have read, our electricity supply is mainly from natural gas (majority) and fuel oil. It is incredibly costly. I cannot fathom why my country is so bright as well Seems incredibly wasteful.

    Hello Kevin these are fantastic images, you certainly live in a great looking country I was lucky enough to visit this wonderful City five years ago.
    Sadly with a stop over of only three days the first day I sleep, the second day was spent at your famous Zoo, the last day walking the City.
    This is one City I also felt very safe in and if I had better health I would visit again on the way to the UK not on the way back like last time.
    Its a shame you don't put these in the Landscape/Seascape Forum for the members to see as many dont venture down this far in the Forum..
    Anyway Thank you for Sharing your Home Town with us.

    Thank you Mary Anne! I am glad you enjoyed visiting my home! Next time you drop by, do drop me a message. I'd be happy to bring you to some shooting locations!


    here's another from our iconic Marina Bay. As you can probably tell, I really like this area a lot, because of the variety of cityscapes that can be captured just by strolling around the 3.5km perimeter of this bay.

    12. Istana Kampong Glam (Malay for "Kampong Glam Palace"), is a former Malay Palace in the Kampong Glam district.
    The palace and compounds were refurbished into the Malay Heritage Centre in 2004.
