An HDR Panorama of Singapore skyline in the fading daylight at dusk. This image is constructed from dozens of photos shot handheld with Nikon Z6 and then stitched in Microsoft Image Compositing Editor.
Singapore at night
Singapore’s most famous icon Merlion with Marina Bay Sands Hotel in the background. Shot handheld with Nikon Z6 and later enhanced for noise reduction in Photoshop.
Singapore at night
Helix Bridge in Singapore.
Wall graffiti in Temple Bar area in Dublin, Ireland. This blue and yellow graffiti on a building corner looked like it was glowing under the sodium vapor lights. I was able to get a sharp picture at 1/8s shutter speed with the 18-200mm VR lens. It’s very rare to get a sharp picture at such a slow shutter speed. I was just lucky. I have used ‘high key’ filter to enhance the effect of blue paint.
New York New York, Las Vegas
A popular photo spot opposite the New York New York hotel in Las Vegas. I had taken same photo some 12 years ago at the same spot. Compare to notice the advances in technology. I had to work a lot on old photo (shot with film camera and then scanned negative) to remove noise, get correct white balance and remove some blemishes on the negative. This time around you see pretty much exactly what came out of my camera (digital this time) with only cropping and color cast removal. Shot with Nikon D90 and Nikon 18-200mm VR lens without a tripod.
Excalibur, Las Vegas
Bellagio, Las Vegas
A lucky shot in the fading daylight while we were having dinner in a outdoor restaurant opposite Bellagio. Believe it or not, I have not done any retouching on this photo beyond a simple crop and some noise reduction. The colors are as they came out of camera. I use +3 Vivid setting all the time. Shot with Nikon D90 and Nikon 18-200mm VR lens, handheld.
Monte Carlo, Las Vegas
Harley Davidson Cafe, Las Vegas
Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas
Planet Hollywood and Paris. Two iconic hotels in Las Vegas in all their night glory. Shot with Nikon D90 without a tripod. The newer digital cameras are getting very good at high-ISO performance that you don’t need to carry a tripod for a decent photo. I have done some post processing to remove noise and boost contrast.
