Great shots and very interesting post processing. I like the strong structures of the clouds in the first three shots, which stand out against the clean lines of the high rise buildings. And the good old Raffles is a stark contrast again, to the modern city.

Great shots!!!!. I like the PP but I like an image to keep some reality. The first three, although striking images, are starting to look like Computer Generated Architectural previews.

the last 3 look much more natural.

My favourite based upon that is #4 the boats

Thanks Smeggypants for your comments.
I didn't do much tweaking on the hdr settings, just a few clicks and render.
Will try to spend a little more time to tweak the settings.
Glad that #4 works for you.

Good work Ken.
I can see why you needed the HDR work done on these images. Smeggy, if you knew the climate of Singapore, you'd realise how difficult it is to get a decent looking sky to shoot with there. But he does have a point Ken.
Thanks for sharing these scenes well known to me.

You are right, I've been trying to shoot these scene for the past few days after work & most of the time the sky are greyish and cloudy, hardly any blue colors.
I've done a bit of PP to the 1st 3 pics and re-uploaded, didn't spend much time though as I've more of birdies pics to process.
