Little India in Singapore. This country loves lighting-up streets during seasonal festivals. Currently it's the Indian Festival of Lights or Deepavali, a Hindu event celebrating Light over Darkness, Good over Evil. It runs for over a month in Little India, the Indian enclave in Singapore. There are street light-ups during Chinese New Year in Chinatown, Ramadan in the Malay and Arab quarters, and Christmas in Orchard Road which is the main tourist shopping district in Singapore. So there is always a chance that a tourist to Singapore will catch one of these street light-ups. One way to shoot these lighted decorations is to use a telephoto lens to 'compress' the scenery. Camera must be on tripod. Exposures may be several seconds long, so you get the effects of cars and people in motion adding to the buzz.
