Just my simple thoughts.
Those who go and take photos of the Merlion mostly take from the angle that Singapore Tourism Board used, so they should rave and rant?
To me, when it's a public spot, there can be thousands of the photo from the same spot, angle and colours/lightings.
I have came across people have a near "photocopy" of photos which I also have.
No big deal..
That's my 2-cents thoughts.
This was posted in Oct 2011. Helix Bridge has been opened for a whole year since then, but TS has the foresight to have unique composition to break away from the pack of boring photos taken from Helix Bridge..

Try taking shots that are harder for others to imitate.
you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye

Quote from last thread:
This angle has been used by many.
At the end of the day, picture speaks for itself. Overshot, overpatronized, there are still ways to make something different. Shenton Way with lightning is going to be more special than Shenton Way at twilight.
What should we focus on? Making pictures that we like, or being oh so special, so unique, but not pleasing yourself at the end, because deep down inside, you have a unique shot and unique composition, but it doesn't work?
This is a unique concept, I call it Spider-Cat
Can someone put a "Kodak Photo Spot" sign where those shots are taken? I want to go down tomorrow and take one...
I also got similar one and shot way earlier than TS did, when they still doing construction work at the arts museum area - can see the cranes in my pic.
But I cannot say anyone copied me because there must be another few hundred or thousands of people before me with this same, boring composition.

@TS... you seriously have some ego issues... you perceived that you're the first to shoot there, where by after digging through and finding out others have the same/similar shots, you decide to start a thread asking others about people who imitate the works of others...
you sure have a hugeeeeeeeee ego
Go patent your composition and angle lor.
well found this online :wonderful lights: Gallery
and a special favorite quote that reads "Whatever u can do, I can do better.."
Hi timotimo...here's a quote for you..."Whatever I've done, I can do better".
If you think others are copying your works...let them. Have confidence in yourself to come out with better ideals...the copiers will always be a step behind you.
Keep on shooting!!
