HDR at Lorong Buangkok

Posted in , ,
Welcome to my new readers from Contest Junkie! I hope you can bear with me while I slowly upload more of my pictures. And thanks to the other readers for revisiting!

Today, I finally travelled to Lorong Buangkok, the last kampong in Singapore. The experience was pretty good, although I'm a little disappointed. The good part was the nice vegetation, old houses and big pretty flowers that is rare in Singapore. The bad part was the heat, mosquitoes and "modern" houses between old houses.

So here is one of the pictures of the kampong. I used high-pass filter and HDR (high dynamic range), which I rarely use, for this picture.

Camera settings:
Focal length: 10mm
f-stop: f/3.5
Exposure time: 1/2000 second
ISO: 100
Exposure Bias: -3 step, -1 step, +1 step
Mounted on un-extended tripod

Photomatix to generate HDR image, then photoshop for high-pass filter, finally lightroom to tweet almost everything.

  2. Thanks! There will be more HDR photos coming up if you love them!
