Inter-cultural Mooncake Festival 2008 @ Carpenter Street ~ Part I
Yet another procrastinated post by yours truly... Held in conjunction with the mooncake festival which falls on last sunday, this week-long colorful cultural event has been been growing in scale since the last couple of years. It is one of those events not to be missed, especially you've got a sweet tooth for old-school snack goodies like gula kapas, ice-kantong, ice-cream puffs... & mooncakes of course ~ a sea of variety to be found on stalls lining up the whole street. Having an dSLR just gives me yet another good reason to go. =)
Here are some shots in monochrome mode...




Supposedly, shooting in B&W gives better performance in terms of noise, especially when shooting in low lighting condition at night using very high ISO. Shot in jpeg format with ISO800....

spot any significant difference? nothing significant (noise) enough for me to make out...

for me canon's ISO800 is still okay..
my 350D's noise is bad only when it comes to ISO1600

personally, i haven't really tried to go that extreme... 800 & below, is quite okay for me, even when blown to full scale.... =)

looks a bit nostalgic... but actually, i was just trying to reduce the noise by shooting in monochrome... or so i thought... thanks, anyway... ^_^
