Field trip to Queenstown + Canon G7X Mark II (part 2)

Chapter: City Rounds   Series: Explore SG

Thanks for coming along with me in part 1 on my field trip to the Queenstown neighbourhood documented using the new Canon G7X Mark II. Here in part 2, out of all the shots shown, only three have undergone post editing. It is my hope to roll out images as they are to show off the G7X goodness.

Along Commonwealth Drive. ISO 125, f/2.8, 1/2000

Still along Commonwealth Drive. Taken from the 22nd floor on block 53 across the street. ISO 125, f/2.8, 1/1640, 15.06mm.

Road sign along Commonwealth Drive. ISO 200, f/6.3, 1/20

Is that a bird or a plane in the sky? Oh well it’s just a plane. Adjusted exposure among others at Photoshop.

This track and field opposite Commonwealth MRT station has seen much better days. Adjusted exposure among others at Photoshop because I needed to make the grass greener.

Queenstown Lutheran Church. ISO 400, f/2.8, 1/1250

Stairways leading to block 83 Commonwealth Close. There should be over 30 steps to climb to the top. ISO 160, f/2, 1/160

[1/2] Hanging orchids. ISO 160, f/2.2, 1/160

[2/2] Here’s where the orchids were hanging from. ISO 160, f/2, 1/160

For as long as I can remember (starting from the 80s I believe) the fried chicken wings at Eng Kee have always been yummy and in demand. I took a break from my shooting to have noodles with green beans and of course a chicken wing which cost a grand total of $2.50. Unbeatable. Edited to black and white at Photoshop, the easiest way to conceal underexposed areas.

A big wide open field before blocks 101, 103 and 106 at Commonwealth Crescent, which is next to Lush on Holland Hill apartments. ISO 400, f/2.8, 1/400

Exceptional looong bridge at Queensway opposite block 95. ISO 160, f/2, 1/80

Far East Flora nursery at Ridout Tea Garden. ISO 160, f/8, 1/10

Peppermint pots at the nursery. ISO 160, f/3.2, 1/13

The Ridout Tea Garden was a favourite destination to celebrate birthdays when I was growing up. As a family we would dine at KFC that was once an occupant in the garden. ISO 160, f/7.1, 1/20

I had a fantastic time snapping away on these field trips with several things that caught me by surprise. Not only did I meet and talked to 2 persons during my rounds, there were also uncommon flowers that were in the open so that admirers like me could take pictures. Oh a pollinating blue band bee even flew into my frame! Such a joy to witness God’s amazing creation.
