Sunset on 179

When I was riding on Bus 179 to have supper, the sun cast its golden rays through trees and clouds. I always find it's the prettiest time towards the end of day.

Marina Barrage (1)

The Marina Barrage, wiki is a dam in Singapore built across the Marina Channel between the reclaimed lands of Marina East and Marina South. It was officially opened on 1 November 2008.
marina barrage is the largest reservoir in Singapore, it retains rainfall to dilute sea water inside the barrage in order to convert the water to fresh water. The operating principle is simple but I think it's a brilliant idea. My friend who is a civil engineer says it is one of the largest project in Singapore.
Beside the dam, Singapore government built a large complex for recreational and educational use. There are large roof top playground covered with lane, fountains, sculptures and a small yet wonderful exhibition. I enjoyed my time staying there bathing fresh wind and shower from the sea.

One thing to can never be too careful at Marina Barrage when changing lens, I found my view finder/mirror/sensor full of dusts after the trip.

Flying kites seems to be a very popular sport at Marina Barrage

Piano Ensmeble of NTU

I was asked to help my friend to take a few shots for Piano Ensemble in NTU. We decided to take photos in Nanyang Auditorium. I chose to use 10-20, 30 and 85 with a 420 flash. 
I took the photos in about 1 hour, then processed them briefly. There were a few things I feel quite challenging; I found it difficult to include both the player and piano in the frame, while at the same time show the face of the player. I guess it's easiest to show the side face of a player, but it's certainly not ideal if everyone shows only side face...
Another problem is how to pose 30 people, one by one, with different gestures; and you have to make the balance so that there is a spontaneous feel and the gestures don't look too rigid. Well, sometimes you have to capture the movements of players, and I really hoped I have a camera with better high ISO performance.
In the end, I found I used 10-20 most often, 30 sometimes to shoot half body, and 85 only a few times to take head shoulder shots. I used RAW for the white balance is much easier to adjust. Here are a few shots from the shooting

G10 CCD defects?

I have just been told that there are some G10s capturing image with a horizontal line near the upper left corner of every picture. The detailed symptom is described here

It's said if the 5th number of the serial no. is 0 or 5, the camera could be affected.

I checked my camera with serial no. of 6928003529, and the problem is there. Potential buyers please be careful...

A few photos from Singapore Zoo

I had a great time in the zoo, though I din't take many photos. Sometimes you have to enjoy yourself and forget about shooting ^_^
