Over the weekend Hazmee, CGM and I made our way to Punggol Beach to shoot the sunset. Here’s one of them basking in the sun (and striking a pose possibly), while waiting for the magic hour.

Good times.

    The treatment is great and he looks…really cool in this shot.

    I thought the cutting off of the tripod legs feels alittle uncomfortable. Maybe it’s just me but i would love to include the tripod legs just a wee bit more. =)

    Nice “gritty” shot. Love the tonal colors and texture of the rocks. Looks like you guys make the most of waiting around! Good job.

  • Phil

    Nothing like kicking back and waiting for the perfect shot. I really like the feel of the processing, but I feel it doesn’t quite fit with the description of basking in the sun, it looks a little cold.

  • Jason Dunsmore

    Really nice photo.

  • simon

    Unbelievable Punggol beach provides such endless warmth,the weather colors well to suit with the background,idealistic shots.

  • manju

  • Somitra

  • Noor Hazmee

    Hey bro! I love the treatment for this shot. I think we more like baked under the sun. basking seems like an understatement. Haha. Looking forward for the rest of the magical hour shots and of course another round of landscaping. Cheers!
    PS: What happened to CGM’s site btw? Cant seem to access it.

    Picture portarying a drama here. nice i can imagine the long wait u guys had, although waiting when fellow photographers are around is not bad as waiting alone. its always good to have friends accompanying when shooting some event.

    I came across a comment you left at my site some time ago, and I thought I would drop you a line and remind you that we all have the power to move our lives in the direction we want, as long as we don’t worry too much about the form it takes. Here’s hoping that you’re doing well and healthy and happy and in pursuit of your inner joy. Happy new Year.
