This is an addition to this post about this fountain.
"This is Suntec's Fountain of Wealth in the middle of Suntec City. It's a huge round bronze ring with a 21 meter diameter and is 15 meter above the ground, kept up by four pillars. It's the world largest fountain. Water is pouring down from the ring to the center. It's build below street level.
At given times the waterfall stops, as you can see here, and then you can walk to the center part. 'Tradition' is that you put your right hand in the small fountain and walk clockwise 4x around it and then you may do a wish... or you will attain great wealth?! I don't remember anymore but there is an instruction sign in the center.
Suntec City has this fountain, an exhibition center, converence rooms, offices and a nice big mall. The foodcourt is build around this fountain. It's in the city centre."
I think you can try a lot of cool photo effects, with long shutters or ultra fast ones but my camera at that time was almost full auto. ): You also need a wide angle to capture it properly. I'm amazed that there are so few pictures of it on TE. Come on, post them if you have them!

J'aime bien l'originalité du sujet de cette photo (cette fontaine de Korée sort de l'ordinaire).
Belle prise de vue!

I like this shot, so much so, I will take a photo of it again this July, when I will be there, good one, but I think you could have included more of the top part of the object, well done
