Now continue to share my picture taken from Singapore..
Went to Botanic Garden in Singapore..

In the hustle-bustle city, never thought of having such a garden over there..
And you can see families and teen picnic over there..
Yeah.. Teens.. And I thought they would just shopping in Singapore.. =)

Random shots

Here are some pictures of sky..
Nothing much about it actually..
Just want to continue my chronicle with D3000... =)

To spice up alittle.. So i edit a little bit the picture..

Don't know if it's better or not..
But for me, it's kinda looks nicer with the blue sky.. =)

Flowers : Part 2

Here comes the second part of flowers!
Lol.. I think that flower is easier to capture than human faces..
It's just too hard to capture human's face with right exposure and composition..
I'm saying RIGHT..
Mean I'm just aiming for normal pictures..
Not some picture that has the "WOW" effect..

Starting to realize that exposure is a very hard thing to control..
From the small LCD display on the D3000 is not enough to get the correct exposure..
You gotta open with computer to see the true picture..
Something I have to learn for a very long time indeed..

Just some of the view-able pictures..

Since my friend say can't really see a flower bud, I guess this clearly is a flower bud already.. =)

Don't know what it is called.. Maybe peacock tail flower?? No idea..
Don't have any special with it, just wanna add more picture inside.. xD

Still can't get nice exposure.. I wonder how many picture I gotta take.. =.=

This one, I guess the exposure still ok lorr...

Maybe the best exposed picture I have... Such a failure.. @.@

Cropped version

Flowers : Part 1

Next test shots are taken from my girlfriend's house..
Saw some pretty flower around her house and decided to take some of it..
Actually, I took quite a lot of pictures of FLOWERS!
But only some are post-able into this blog..
Think about the quality of those picture that I never post up when you see the following pictures!

Not the best shots but Not the worst too.. IMHO la.. xD

Both the pictures kind of underexposed.. Still learning how to adjust.. Please bear with it.. =)

Little out of focus.. I think it's because I was using manual focus.. Just for Fun..

Can't get bokeh effect due to using only kitlens.. I hope i can bring out some details of the flower.. Still underexposed..

A new flower bud emerges from the water surface..

I like this picture because it looks so unreal! Like the water and the leaf structures.. =)

That's all for now.. Try filter some more better picture for the next post..
But I think those might be the best I have already..
Thanks for viewing.. =)

**No photoshop applied.. Don't know how to do any edit yet.. =.= **

~Tilt-Shift Photography~

"Tilt-shift photography" refers to the use of camera movements on small- and medium-format cameras, and sometimes specifically refers to the use of tilt for selective focus, often for simulating a miniature scene.

That's the meaning i quote from Wikipedia(best source for something you don't know)
Using the tilt-shift technique, we can produce two nice effects!

It's selective focus and miniature faking.
In short, selective focus is to direct someone's attention
to a specific part of your picture.
The train will look sharper when the surrounding is blurred.

For miniature faking is to create a small image from a very large picture.
Everything seem so fake in this picture as if the cars are made out plastic..

Here's a nice video made out of tilt-shift technique with time lapse.
