Earlier this evening I visited Macritchie Reservoir with fellow RI photography club members. I took this with a 60-second exposure at f22 with a remote trigger, borrowed from Matthew. I anticipated a sunset with orange tones but it rained for quite some time in the morning and afternoon, but this turned out quite well though. Cheers!

I am Ziren Wang, a student from Raffles Institution, Singapore. I picked up a camera in January 2009 in my school's photographic society, and I have never looked back. Years later, I have explored various different forms of photography, from event coverage, to fashion, to documentary, to photography using DIY lenses, and most recently, to film.

I must thank my seniors who have been so instrumental in developing in me a passion for this art. It has been said that there are two kinds of teachers: one gives the man the fish; the other teaches the man to fish. I believe my seniors are of a third kind: they have made me want to fish. They have imparted me with important technical skills, but they have also inspired me to continue photographing for six years.

"To take a photograph is to participate in another person's mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt." -Susan Sontag

That's a very lovely picture with beautiful tones. I like how the lake is blurred.
