Totally non post processed.. this image is to remind me never to hang your remote shutter from your tripod when you're in the sea with a rising tide... Needless to say it soaked it.. and gave me the shock of my life.. but all is good however as I managed to save it by opening it up and drying out the contacts. Hurray me!!
Taken from Pasir Ris Beach, Singapore at 6.29 AM. No sleep and after a cockroach hunt.. =/

Giant Supertrees are illuminated during the evening light and music show at the Supertree Grove in the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore. The Marina Bay Sands Hotel can be seen in the background.
We missed this spot during our previous visit so I was keen to get out there and take some night shots in the gardens. Something a bit different and worth seeing if you visit this city.
This was as wide as I could go with my 16-35mm lens.
Painting on fans is a Chinese art form that demands special skills in composition because of the shape of the fan. Painting is done on one side, and on the reverse is usually a calligraphy of verse. The fans are for common use, but if the painting is done by a famous artist, the painted paper is usually removed from the skeleton of the fan and mounted as a work of art in its own right. This fan was painted by Pu Ru (also known as Pu Xinyu), a cousin of the last Emperor of China.
I took this picture some time back. I thought the sunset was absolutely gorgeous. Imagine my disappointment when the purity of the photo turned out to be contaminated by the unappealing lens flare. Without much hesitation I consigned the image to the lonely corners of my hard disk. Later, I was revisiting some old photos, I saw it a second time - and having embarked on my project on imperfection, I saw this photo from a different eye. Who said that the perfect image must be pure and clean?
