Very nice.

It's always a little bit easier isn't it to get snappy photos when the colors are already so vibrant.

I liked third and sixth one's best.

I'm going to take photos of a civil war re-enactment in a couple of weeks. I'll try and post some myself. I have a little more direct control of my photos. Two cameras.

There's nothing like wet pavement to bring out a crisp feel in a photograph, so that top one is my favorite. That overcast light is truly the best. Great series!

Like the first pic you have taken, really bring forth the spirit of youth.

Recently S'pore held its float parade at Orchard road. I managed to capture some evnet shots.
