    Default The Esplanade

    Has this angle been shot before?
    Feel this is a keeper for me for a 'hard to shoot' building...

    c&c welcome...

    not bad .. there was something similar but yours is more engaging and captivating.

    one thing in my mind: to crop away the top, ie a straight cutting off the top without any indication of roof or sky, and another thciok black border like the bottom - to create a more abstract feel to the whole pic. Just a thot.

    (can preview the effect by scrolling up the window until u dont see the sky. I think it will be a more intiguing pic.)

    thanks alot, I like that word 'captivating' alot...

    hmm, u're right, a tighter crop will make the durian seem less durianish & more diamondish.... thanks again

    When the top is cropped off, the "unbalance" caused by the doors or whatever light coloured panels on the left side will be noticed, and that takes away the beauty of the image.

    But I like the door smack in the centre... just that the light coloured panels on the left (to the right of the centre door) is too distracting.

    Can try fixing that in post.

    Good shot - perhaps improve the sky by making it blue?

    Very nice! I wouldn't crop away too much at the top -- I like the curve. Maybe just crop a little of the sky away, but leave the curve

    I like it. Was that as much of Esplanade that you could get? Anyway, nice framing, perhaps you could go back another day when the weather is nicer.

    Good perspective.. but maybe alternate selection of colors will stand out.
