I'm Ready For My Close-Up

Last month, my company had a team-building event up at Bukit Tinggi. I had already explored the place inside and out in my last trip and so, wasn't very keen on taking more photos of the buildings again.


However, armed with my 17-70mm, I was interested to see what kind of landscape shots I could capture.

The sad thing was that the weather was not very cooperative but that meant some relief for us during the outdoor portion of the team-building.

I caught up with my old "friend", one of the swans near the lake just outside of Colmar Tropicale.


I managed to get very close to the swan and I'd guess it was wondering if my camera dispensed any food!


I didn't take many photos of Bukit Tinggi. I only managed to take a landscape of Colmar Tropicale from the top of the tower which I've turned into a miniature...


I doubt I'll go up to Bukit Tinggi again so soon within these next couple of years. ;-)


  1. Love the tilt shift effect. Very nice. :)

    You shot the last one with a tilt and shift lens? A mini Colmar.

    I like the first photo. Clever use of the frame :)

    I don't like Colmar. I think the place is over-rated and accommodation is way overpriced.

  3. Hi Che-Cheh, Mei Teng...

    Che-Cheh - Thanks! I haven't done this effect in a while.

    Mei Teng - Didn't have a tilt-and-shift lens but used photoshop technique to simulate the tilt-n-shift effect. ;-)

  4. wow....new lens....i wish to get a wide angle lens...

  5. Hi via,

    Thanks! It's not exactly wide-angle but it's a standard zoom lens. I'm also aiming for wide-angle but not so soon. ;-)

  6. hey great close up shot of the swan... sharp photos u've got.. what camera do u use?

  7. That's really a close up with the swan. :D
