Ship in the Sky

Ship in the Sky

(1/500, F8, ISO100, 19mm)

This weekend was spent in Singapore, which is a 5-hour busride from KL.
The main reason to go was a gig from one of my favorite bands Mogwai in historic Fort Canning Park and they totally blew me away (again).

During the day we were fortunate to spent some time in the Marina Bay and its neighbouring Gardens by the Bay.
The sheer size and beauty of the architecture and gardens there were very inspiring.
This is part of the lily-shaped ArtScience museum and the colossal Marina Bay Sands.

    • Thanks, always looking for the drama in my architecture shot, but with the size of this one it was impossible not too 😉
      Cheers, Ron.

    • Thank you, Sriram! It is an amazing place to wander and look around; glad i was able to bring some of it across in this photo!
      Greetings, Ron.

  1. Beautiful b&w (with a slight split tone?). This is exactly how I’ve wanted my black and whites to look. I’m still working on it!

    • Thanks very much, Emilio! And you are right about the slight split tone; i used a little of Selenium toning in Nik software, cuz I think that works well with shiny reflections in B&W.
      Your B&W photos look really great to me 😉
      Have a great week, Ron.

    • Hi Randall, thanks, it was great to see the Marina Bay for real, very impressive; and you´re a mogwai fan as well?
      Amazing show in a very special place 😉
      Cheers, Ron.

      • I hope to see it one day. Yes, like a few Scottish bands, Mogwai, Snow Patrol being a couple favorites. Nothing like a live show…and in a great venue, perfect. Cheers!

    • Merci, Candided, such an amazing building to photograph, would like to be there once with sunses to try as well!
      Bien fin de semaine, Ron

    • Haha, thats so flattering of you, i was the same seeing the magnitude of this building, thanks!
      All the best to you, Amy, greetings, Ron.

    • Hola Margaret, definitely does look like Guggenheim, or any other Gehry-building with its reflecting metal plates, perfect for B&W photos during the day, i think.
      Thanks and have a good weekend, Ron.

    • Gracias, Lisa! Like I said to others, photographing upwards is hard to avoid, although there is a sky park up there and even an infinity pool, but then it would be hard to capture the building 😉
      I want to leave that park for a next visit during sunset, must be incredible up there.
      Have a great weekend, Ron

    • Gracias, Robert!
      I like my architecture (and mountains) in B&W, but also the reflections of shiny buildings look cool, i think 😉
      Have a great weekend, Ron.

    • Thanks a lot, Mike! When its the middle of the day and bright light i tend to look for contrast and B&W shots as the light is just too harsh and boring to make good coloured once in my opinion.
      Have a good weekend, Ron.

    • Thank you, Dragon, it was interesting as I was as much inspired by the ArtScience museum reflections as the Marina Bay Sands building and was very aware of the trap of a billion photos that were taking of it 😉
      Cheers, Ron.

  2. Beautiful image. I had been to Marina bay a few years back and took quite a lot of shots.

    But your image tell me that there still some great angles to shoot at this beautiful structure.

    • Hello Sreejith,
      I was amazed by the building but also the surrounding lay out of the Gardens and bay were very impressive!
      I never take too much but this angle and the reflections of the ArtScience museum always make a good object in brigth sunlight i thought.
      Thanks for the compliment, greetings, Ron.
