no problem haoz..... as I'd said, I don't like to take pictures in Singapore.
and as I'd said, they are snap shots. I am not trying to boast anything. Like most of the posts in this forum, the photos are really nothing to boast about.
I have already declared that I am just a snap-shooter. So I think that your comment on "nothing to boast about" may be a little unnecessary.
the flowers and butterflies.... yup just macro mode. not trying to make any point. Realistic thing about this genre is: most of these shots are just macro shots anyway. At best, it's a show case of nature's color, at worst, it is a boast of one's equipment superiority.
jellyfish... you got to try it sometime. BTW, the underwater world is a great place for shots... assuming you'd want to part with some money for the entrance fee.
cityscape... yup and pns camera, with a decent manual control can do these shots. those from the restaurant, they were just normal programmed shots. but my point is, these are nice places to shot, assuming you want to spring some bucks on the meal too.
cropping....since my camera has a relatively high megapixel count, I normally do it after the shot. I have already said that that they are unedited, unretouched and uncropped.
merlion... i have plenty of portrait shots, all taken on the same day.... didn't like it.
at the end of the day.... none of us are really exhibition level photographers, with the exception of pointblue, and possibly joho... (not sure who are the other serious photographers here).
having said that, I am not going to call you names just because you made some negative comments about my shots.
therefore, if I have offended you with the low quality of my photos, I apologise. Looking forward to see more of your work.
