Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Singapore. The view is from Marina East on the opposite side of Marina Bay towards the great skyline of Singapore.
Time
It was the last day on my first trip to Singapore. The sky looked quite promising that day. Fortunately, I was able to leave the office early. Directly went to the hotel, grabbed my stuff and took a taxi to Marina Bay Sands Hotel. My plan was to capture the sunset from Marina East. I reached a nice viewpoint right before the sky started to turn orange and red.
Lighting
...
Equipment
Used my Sony A7rII camera with a 16-35 lens. All shots were taken with a polariser and a hard grad ND filter attached to the lens. And one shot was taken with an additional ND filter for the soft long exposure effect on the water.
Inspiration
...
Editing
I took several shots that were manually blended together in post-processing.
In my camera bag
Sony A7r II with Sony 16-35 2.8 GM lens Sony A7r with 70-200 2.8 lens optional: Sony 24-70 2.8 GM or DJI Mavic 2 Pro (depends on what I want to shoot) Several ND / grad ND filters
Feedback
Singapore, especially the area around Marina Bay offers a lot of great viewpoints for Cityscape photography. It's possible to take some good photos during daytime as Singapore has really low air pollution. But the light during sunrise and sunset is really the best. But you have to hurry up! Singapore is near the equator so the time between the beginning of the golden hour and the end of the blue hour is really fast. So plan your shots and use your time as fast and best you can do.
