    dont really see much reflection in the pool... and hard to do it with sunlight..
    more focus on the pool perhaps? given your title.

    too much contrast also between the overexposed bright areas and the underexposed shadows.

    I don't think it's just a matter of finding a better spot or angle you'll get a "better" photo. Composition, subject and etc are equally important besides taking at the right timing when the sun is not so glaring or directly in front of the camera and etc. Nothing is right with your photo that's worth commenting on, unfortunately. Sorry, don't mean to be rude or critical here but rather giving realistic advise.

    Then maybe the people here can help you get it right.

    although there isn't much meaning to the piece, i do not want to dismiss it as having no merits. here's a slightly modified version which i think is an interesting commentary on formal composition

    yes thats a better crop...

    gives a better balance to the white/ dark areas..

    Actually i thought itz quite ok leh.. ha. i quite like the reflection. Jus that i think if the sun not there might be better.

    also, i would rather see only from middle to bottom. as in crop out most of the real thing, leave mainly the reflection.

    jus a suggestion.

    yup, something like that. but of course if we can retake the photo again, with more of the pool reflection and best if without the big sun.

    With your background too bright, you could try using ND filter to adjust the exposure for your foreground. Well, just a suggestions to get a better exposure. =)

    the problem is the highlights are blown...at that time of the day with that kind of lighting you probably would need ND + polarizing (for reflection in the water) to reduce the light

    or do HDR. combine multiple exposures

    don't be put down by those comments that say rubbish like "This is meaningless". because that comment is equally meaningless.

    Here's my newbie point of view.

    I like it. It probably falls under street photography which most of my shots come from. Shooting without meaning, and just for the pleasure to our eyes. I think it actually is pretty balanced in terms of the bright, dark, bright, dark , bright areas cos of the mildly light part in the middle of the image. Probably the only thing that i feel might improve this is, if you could go a little lower so as to balance the amount of headroom as well as your tail space. So that a certain form of symetery will be formed.

    Cheers
    Chris
