I was in the possession of an amazing camera over the weekend – the Canon 5D Mark II – I captured a few nice shots but didn’t get the chance to fully test it out in the short time I had it. I was using a Canon 70mm-200mm f/2.8 Telephoto Lens while taking these flowers and the DOF-Depth of Field combined with the lens length and aperture of ~2.8 was amazingly small which made great macro shots.

I love low pressure sodium lights, they produce such an interesting light and is the one common thing across nearly all night urban-photography making for a great subject.This was taken on the streets of Batu Ferringhi, Penang near the main night markets. I used the smaller aperture to create a more sparkly effect of the light source and to encapsulate all the surroundings with a greater depth of field. I really like the lens flare produce, some people hate it, but in this case here I think it adds greater emphasis to the subject.
