Lower Peirce Reservoir
This is a part of a series where IPL roam around Singapore to apply his personal ‘The 100 Manual Settings Project’. He know he won’t learn just by asking the spies, read and share their tips, be amazed and inspired by their images and accomplishments. He is now going out to experience their stories and set his camera to manual. Now, aside from blogging inspirations and interviews, he also post his output to share his personal experience, this is to see if his personal project is of any help to himself or his readers, or just a plain blogpost that increases backlinks of other blogs.
He started with Lower Seletar Reservoir, the above mentioned title is the 3rd of a series.
The Lower Peirce Reservoir (Chinese: 贝雅士蓄水池下段) is one of the oldest reservoirs in Singapore. It is located near the MacRitchie Reservoir and the Upper Peirce Reservoir. It was originally created as the Peirce Reservoir but was designated as lower upon the creation of the Upper Peirce Reservoir. It is 6 hectares in size and contains many trees that are over 100 years old. There is a Lower Peirce Trail, which is a 900-metre boardwalk that takes visitors through a mature secondary forest. The reservoir is the source of the Kallang River, the longest river in Singapore. (Source: Wikipedia)
Lower Peirce is a good location for SUNSET shots.
PP'd with Digital ND Grad
I thought I won’t be using any ND grads since I know I can add it in PP later, but realized there are details you can’t bring back using digital ND’s especially from the background. I tried doing double exposure but it doesn’t feel right. So what I did? I immediately purchased ND grads and straight away go to LEE. (There are cheaper variants like Cokin or Hi-tech and from what I read, they are not bad but most of them, eventually upgraded to LEE)
