Singapore, March 2011



These are pictures I took from my recent visit to Singapore. I realised when I uploaded them that they were mostly boring pictures of buildings, and even my people shots weren't as "poppy" as I'd have liked them to be. So I ran them through Picnik and used a couple of special effects, which I think enhance the pictures and bring out better what I wanted to say. I'm actually really pleased with them now, especially the mannequin one and the neon man on the bench right below. It's fun to play with photos every now and then!

  2. I absolutely love the picture of the dress, all in yellow. What post processing software are you using?
    I'm also an amateur photographer and a long time reader of your blog from London. I'm a Nikon owner and made a resolution to take my camera out more this year. I recently started a daily photo blog where I lug about said camera everday to capture something presentable. I'm just coming up to finishing out my first month which I'm super excited about.
