Thanks to my good friend 21.gif Soon for taking me here. It was pouring rain when we arrived, as it often does in Singapore, but it stopped just before sunset.

The buildings in the back are the Marina Sands Resort, and yes, that is a cruise ship spanning the 3 buildings on top. Very odd architecture idea.

Day before roll over and it is now my second highest scoring image, 7.45. We'll see if it holds. Kinda surprised it is doing so well. The bridge would shake some during the long exposures and I think that is evident in the towers. I had a sharper one, but the laser lights weren't as good.

Post challenge - almost 3 years between blue ribbons. Thanks again to 21.gif Soon for meeting me with very little notice, driving through Singapore traffic, and hanging with me during the shoot.

One of my favorites. Ultra futuristic and a strong argument for infrastructure investment.
