Thread: Landrover 1st Overland Anniversary Raffles Brunch

    Default Landrover 1st Overland Anniversary Raffles Brunch

    In short, 5 guys in 1956 achieved an expedition from London to Singapore with 2 Landrover Overlands. In Mar 2006, they recreated their journey. And dined at Raffles Hotel - something they forgot to do in the original expedition.

    Was approached to take a few 'scenic' photographs of them for their Raffles brunch in front of the hotel & here's 3 versions my post process of the same photograph. I'm ooking for critiques on my 2 crude imitations of CAR UK ... personally, I prefer the slightly bluish cast version, what do U guys think?

    hmm.. the pic on the website looks more "newspaper-like" to me.
    I prefer the green yellow one.

    Thanks Hobbesyeo... no complaints? =)
    Now that U mention it... the foto on website does look a little like newspaper...

    Yea Dennis..
    Where there were no bridges, they had to build rafts to get their LRs across... the overland is also damn tall... guess this is what started those 4x4 jungle 'adventures'. Their total expenses (in 1956 currency tho) is also listed there.
    So, any comments on the photos? =)

    OT: Funny that only newspaper & tv news didnt cover this... 20+ Landrovers convoy all over singapore that weekend, like a small invading army...

    well, if you really want to nit-pick.. I would have asked the guys to line up nicely. One of them seems to be a little but 'hidden' behind the rest. But that's really not the point. I think its a great shot. You captured them at a very natural and relaxed state.

    First shot looked best.

    Only comment I would like to make is that, it would have been better for the old boys to have their hands on one another's shoulders and grinning like kids with their toys... it would have had a better feel to the mood of the shot. Nice positioning nevertheless... I am just picking out the little details.
