Merlion , Singapore's tourism Icon. Born in 1964 and designed by Mr. Fraser Brunner for the Singapore Tourist Promotion board. Why a lion head with the body and tail of a fish ? The body and fish tail symbolizes that Singapore started as a fishing village and the Lion head represents Singapore.
"Singa"pore - Singa actually means Lion in the malay language.

Hope everyone likes this and I can maintain my 6 streak. Honestly I do not like it too much, looks too much like a post card, LOL!!

Congrats on another top 5! .....Can you just quite down your amazing scores for a bit, otherwise I'll just have to resign from the h2h challenge....You do realise that your last 8 consecutive scores are better than my average, and your 9th equalled it exactly. Hahahahaha! BTW nice postcard! :)...Oh Yeah! I'm definately going to remember Merlion!

Nice clear clen shot with the candy colored tones so loved here at DPC. The text has an odd distracting halo, the cloud just to the right of the statue is distracting and the crop seems just a bit too close to the statue's back. Never the less in guessing top ten.

Very well done. The spitting statue is really cool. Wish I was there.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice focal point on the sculpture and the nicely illuminated skyline. Colors are nice. I think you could have eliminated the text on the bottom and put the text in the dead space in the upper right sky. IMO

Beautiful!! This makes me want to visit and it's definitely a postcard I would buy. Beautiful exposure, so clear. Great job. One of the two 10's I gave out.

Wonderful lighting. Excellent choice of scene for a postcard.

Simply gorgeous with only minor flaws - gives a sense of being modern. Nicely framed and the font is a good selection. Well done.

Great composition and point of view. Nice colors. I would have cloned out that small patch of clouds in front of the lion's face, which in my opinion is a bit distracting that helping the shot. The water from the fountain is well exposed too.

I gave this a 9. The mist above the statue is a little distracting and I would have cloned it out but I still think a 9 is a good score for this.

Beautiful DOF & composition. But the framing & text with too much contrast is really taking my eye away.
