| Description |

Megarama? I did this with 4 photos, 2 top and 2 bottom. Hehe!! Time to up the game a little.

| The tipping point.. |

Well boOnz, I don't really know what else to say on the camera settings to how to get a sharper photo. We'll just recap a little..

Use the lowest ISO you have and a smaller aperture. How small? Well some might say f5.6 is good enough, I still think you can see a slight bokeh on the unfocused areas. It depends on you, really, I prefer f7.1.

Other than that its down to the processing. I'm not really sure what you wanted but if its sharpening an image, use unsharp mask filter on Photoshop. Amount 100%, radius 1-4 pixels (don't over do it) and 0 levels for the threshold.

Other editing I did on my photos were levels for brightness, color balance to rid of the yellow tint you get when doing night shots, saturations for colors.. And then of course there's the different exposures (check out my tutorial), DRIs and HDRs.. Hehe!!

Why don't you try do one and let me know if you're stuck on something..

| One other thing.. |

I'm trying to organise an outing for when I'm back in Brunei. Is anyone interested? What would you like to do? Sunsets? Night photography? Where would you like to go? Town? Beach? Abandoned house? Or somewhere I never heard of? Let me know please and we'll take it from there.

I do have a slight problem though.. I need someone to scout around for me before we go there.. preferbably somewhere in Brunei Muara district. I don't think I have the time to go anywhere far. I'm not keen to spend time on the road when I could be with family.

Let's make this worth while guys..

I don't want to go without a plan.. so suggestions would be nice.

Asri Issac was suggesting we bring the family. I see a few problems there my friend..

One thing is that if you're taking them to the beach, I take it we'll be there around 4-5 in the afternoon. That's not a good time to get a sunset shot which is usually a few minutes before and a few minutes after magrib..

Which brings me to the other thing. You don't really want your kids out time magrib.

It'll be too dark for them to play around and you definitely would like to stay for the blue hour right?

Good idea and I'm happy you suggested it, but I don't think my wife would like to come along.. She be bored to death. Hehehe!!
