More Pics to Feast On

Place: Eye On Malaysia, Lake Titiwangsa, Malaysia
Time: Evening, last Sunday
Partner in Crime: The Girlfriend.

Equipment: Nikon D80 with 18-135 kit lens and tripod.

Click on the images to see a bigger picture.

It was really unplanned, and last minute, but I liked it anyways because it gave me the chance to work the long exposures and also to learn about the telephoto capabilities of the Nikon kit lens. Not too bad, I must say.

There's so much to learn ! I'm so new to the world of DSLR, and I'm still trying to understand the camera and be "one" with it.

Let me know what you guys think, ya ?

There was a crowd there, but I didn't feel like climbing into the Eye for some reason.

From here, it's more like a table fan instead.

The big wheels are hitting KLCC soon !!!! Run !!!

When they switched off the lights, the eye no longer looked like a table fan.

Nice view from here. Too bad there's like a few billion mosquitos that forced us away !

Moz, try going there before 7, use fluorescent as white balance. You'll get a magnificent orange sky just before the sunsets...

I actually have a lot of photos of the eye as well as the fireworks but no time to post lah.
I know my blog like bankrupt already lately... sighh

Really? Wah ... your kipas must be very expensive and exclusive then =P

angel:
*snaps*

Eh ... how many time I have to snap your picture??

No leh ... too many mosquitos ... and lazy to walk to other side also ...

may:
Ha? I am absolutely humbled by what you can do with webpages too !!!

pelf:
Thanks ! Next time in KL, you should call me ... then can do photo shoots together !

jems:
Thanks !

If it spins like a fan, I think Michael Jackson will come to KL to make music videos !

inevitable:
Hahaha ... didn't realise you use that trick. Yeah, flourescene white balance adds warmth - because it tries to remove green that is present in flourescent light.

Another trick for nice sunshine is to do a velvia color mixer in photoshop / GIMP or to set hue to +3 degrees or stronger in the D40.

meendee:
*rolls out red carpet* Welcome to my humble blog !

I learnt the channel mixer trick from your journal ! Cool !

infectioner:
After 7-1 ? Or because of photos ?

che-cheh:
Thanks ! That's why I love the 18-135 lens ... it's a good telephoto lens, and I especially like it in the dark.
