Singapore zing

The view of the Singapore esplanade from my room window at the Oriental hotel during a recent working trip to CommunicAsia 2006. I'm always in the habit of shooting pictures from my room window wherever I travel -- there always seems to be a nice view...except when you're staying in New York, where the view is more likely that of another building's windows than of Central Park. Hoho. This photo was shot by just placing my camera on the little coffee table in the room, propped up by a rolled up shirt, then turning off all the lights in the room (to minimise reflections). The exposure was about 30 seconds at f/8. Nikon D70, AF-S Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6. Posted by Picasa

Ah yes.. Love this shot! Esp since the skies aren't in its usual orange-ish or bluish tinge.
