Morning along Marina Bay

I have an enjoyable time today shooting cityscapes this morning along Marina Bay with my church friends. We were blessed with a great weather and good light! What a great fellowship we have this morning!

#1 Lines and couple
1st picture I made this morning was when I spotted this couple sitting along the steps. Using the leading lines of the steps and barricades to frame them in. Desaturate the distracting colours to place emphasise on the lines.

#2 Rising sun
When I saw the low rising sun at the horizon, I knew a picture opportunity is looming. Setting up my tripod quickly, I composed this picture using the leading lines of the railings and balance the picture by having the silhouetted MBS on the right. The yellow and blue sky provides a beautiful backdrop.

#3 Singapore Skyscrapers
I cannot resist not to take this ‘shot to death’ postcard picture of our Singapore skyscrapers sky line! I like the wavy patterns of the water as it provides a nice texture to the picture.

#4 Who will win?
Seeing a red cyclist, I quickly squat down and find a picture moment. Guess who will win this race?

#5 Framing MBS
I got to thank Jenny for this composition! This composition is her idea. I like the curvy helix bridge which provides a nice frame for MBS,

#6 Lazy reading
What a way to enjoy a lazy Saturday morning!

#7 Converging into MBS
I like to make use of leading lines to compose my pictures. It creates a sense of depth. Like this shot especially due to the strong side light from the sun.

#8 Converging into MBS - Portrait version
How about composing this into a portrait? Do you think this is visually stronger?

Overall fantastic! It doesnt matter if was taken a million times, #3 is a stunning shot. These are all nicely composed but #5 does it for me, the metal arc pulls your eye around stopping at that very interesting building.
