i think u overdid it... it's too bright and sharp until looks not so natural..

for eg the lamb shoulder... beef sirlion... and to certain extent the oysters... i feel kinda over-did with the brightening... and most other photos over-did with the sharpening...

most of the photos... can see like even noise of the background have been enhanced so becomes fuzzy fuzzy de... twtan's photos on other hand... noise is at minimal...
I think the contrast too high cause you sharpen it too much.
Sigh, critics Keke, i go have a look at the source pics and retry. Aiyoh, for the noise, mine is cheapo camera ler, how can compare to twtan's one? At same ISO setting n size, mine confirmed noiser than his.

Oei, simi evil? You should be touched. Whenever see nice oysters, we will go 'These look nice. Hmmm, Kunoichi will love these. I know, lets take a photo for her to drool over!' Okay, maybe the last part is evil

Errr, i sorta recall them promoting the pretty korean waitresses as an attraction rather than handsome korean chef. So hows the waitresses over there? Pretty? Got flies over the sashimi?
at the rate i'm drooling over the oyster pics i'm gonna have to change a new keyboard soon.... pls take responsibility and sponsor me a new one

pretty waitresses ah? hmm... okie lah, quite sweet-looking, smile alot and very well-mannered 1 was following us as we went in to check out the food, not intrusive she kept a distance and mantained a great smile all the way even though it's obvious we're not staying to eat.

for good photos... should learn from sen's ones... his use of focusing the food in clarity in the foreground with blurred/unfocused background damn pro... and his photos hardly have noise... and having the right balance of colors... can make ordinary hawker food look soooooooo delicious...!!

Hawker centers are usually bright with natural light compared to restaurants which can be dimly lit and with artificial lights. Low light equal higher ISO speed equal more noises in pictures. Artificial lights means colour casts which resulted in non natural colours.

Err, the cheapo camera is my new camera. Costed me $151. The hp one is beyond cheaponess

If i not mistaken, the 'sharp subject n blurry background' is a feature of the camera rather than a technique. My colleague demoed to me b4 on her camera. Think someone here also showed me b4 on 1 of the outings. Twtan? Normally found in cameras >= 300+. I love tat effect too. If its a technique, then sign me up to learn it.

Errrr, if taking only 1 or 2 items, can really take time to compose the pic nicely, but for buffets a bit difficult. If really take time to setup every pic, dun need to eat liao. I sometimes just point, shoot and move on. Abt 1-2 secs per pic. Furthermore 1 hand to lift up the cover, another hand to hold and click on the shoot button, so i normally use higher ISO spd to compensate for any shakiness. However, i have to admit, my hands not steady enough.

PS: I do think Sen's pics look great too, n its a great deal to do with his good photography skills.

Yea, esp 333. You'll think tat at the prices it charges, it can afford some decent lighting, but the place is so dim. Supposedly to make the ambience more romantic, but if you ask me, i think its to prevent diners from seeing wat they're eating + too cheapo to install more lights. Keke ... i'm kidding ... but it is really dim there.
