    hmmm it feels kinda of trapezium to me..
    sort of like skewed....
    and err it gives me a dizzy feeling to view that photo...

    although that being said, I like the way the stature stands out.

    victoria theatre behind is flat. Looks weird. Think it would've been better if you shot Sir Stamford Raffles slightly to the left or right.

    i like it. good on its own.

    if u have some image processing s/w u can try correcting the 'trapezium' or the perspective and see if it works. OR maybe one of us here can do it so u can see if that really helps.

    you might as well have taken an upskirt shot.

    i agree with knoxknocks, a different angle would be more pleasing.

    some of my thoughts:
    as i scrolled down to view the image, below it was your list of equipment. immediately i felt very uncomfortable. i feel that image is very derogatory to your photographic equipment.

    this picture is not without potential, a tighter crop might work better, here's an example



    i'd prefer a title like 'keeping watch'

    at the moment i posted, not much idea of the title though, still got lots to learn from you guys. This crop of yours is better then the one i did.

    Firstly, thx for the critic on my picture on how to make it better.
    Secondly, however, what's this got to do with my list of equipment stated in my signature? Is it having good photographic equipment one must take good picture? just some of my thoughts.

    you're welcome.

    thats very interesting, out of the ordinary thoughts you have, considering that most people feel that it is the photographer who gives the picture its uniqueness, not the equipment.

    having good equipment but being unable to take keepers is a sad, sad case.
