Thanks for your kind words. :)

Behind The Lens

Marina Bay Sands Boardwalk
Lighting is best at this timing as it's blue hour, the best moment to take photos due to soft and diffused lighting.
Pentax K5-IIs, Sigma 10-20 and Benro tripod, no flash used.
Wanted to capture the Central Business District buildings with water reflection, together with the Louis Vuitton building
I took 5 shots in landscape mode, stitched and merged them into a panorama image. The resultant image is then adjusted for the exposure and colors and have its geometry corrected (horizontally and vertically straightened). Lastly crop for the best framing.
In my camera bag
2 camera bodies (Pentax K3 and K5-IIS), Sigma 10-20, Tamron 17-50 lens, ND filters (3/6/10 stops), RF remote, spare batteries and memory cards.
If you intend to shoot in panorama mode you have to plan ahead the number of shots and the % of overlapping, the higher the better but have to watch out the total time required if you want long exposure for each shot (better & smoother water reflection). The reason is that blue hour doesn't last long and lighting changes pretty fast, it will make the post processing a little tough dealing with different lighting. If you just wanted to shoot single shot, the shutter speed is recommended 30sec or longer for smooth water reflection and smooth moving cloud. Longer exposure can also eliminate walking human to appear in your capture. For panorama shot, I'll choose between 20-30sec each shot, 30sec for 5x landscape mode or 7-8 shots of 20sec in portrait mode.
