1. in what area is critique to be sought?
Image quality and sharpness
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
A relaxing view of a lesser-seen part of Singapore
3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
It was a very hot day. I lost my way en route to Mandai from Upper Thomson Road. (accidentally turned for Old Thomson Road)
I had drunk a lot of water and was urgently seeking a washroom when i chanced upon the reservoir park. (my physical need was so great i am still not sure if it was Upper or Lower Pierce Reservoir written on the sign outside)
After my toilet break I noticed a great view and fortunately my DSLR (canon 500D w EF 28-105) was on hand. Regrettably I did not have my tripod with me.
Due to the hot weather of 6pm the light was more than sufficient and shooting at F8 handheld was easily executed.
I noticed this interesting structure (pump building? not sure, if anyone can identify that would be great) and decided to include it in my photos. But at 28mm the structure was too small and I shot at 105mm instead (!) Sempais and seniors please advice if shooting tele for landscape is a foolish thing.
4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
It's okay (can use as Facebook cover image?) but I think it could be much much better, experienced seniors and pros please many many teach, I am willing to listen!
