Happy Birthday Singapore!

By Mindy Tan In Documentary Photography

It’s Singapore’s Golden Jubilee celebrations. A final lead-up to the celebrations of our city-state’s 50th Birthday – weekly fireworks and rehearsals, one could participate even if you have no tickets. Which other country will celebrate in such a grand way?


Major landmarks join in the spectacle, including the historic Fullerton Hotel, the former General Post office.

    All the bright lights and colorful fireworks is tremendously a perfect shot. All your photos were simply stunning and impressive. If you don’t mind, what are the technical details applied in these brilliant photos? Like, what camera and lens did you use? I just love how the splash of lights are perfectly captured. Everything is flawless. Everything is just well documented and organized. I could just stare at these photos all night long and would never complain about it. Its vibrant colors are just splendid and lovely. Great shots, great photography skills. Keep it up.
