Singapore's Central Park
Wow, i stayed there for my first 6 months in singapore, and from the view that could even be the same apartment, i have a crap shot of it, looks very similar but yours is better, the b&w works wellOriginally Posted by Cliffy
You're rich, hehe.
It was taken from the showsuite on the 24th floor, the architect invited us up to take a look.
btw, thanks for the compliment!

The company were nice enough to pay for it when we relocated here
May I suggest a square crop like this? It does wonders for the visual weight IMO. Hope you don't mind that I borrowed your image to illustrate what I mean. I'll remove it in a couple of days.
I prefer the original... square crop loses its sense of context. From the original I can tell where it was taken... square crop looks like any shot taken in some urban landscape... nothing to identify with or set it apart.Originally Posted by Stoned
I find the original visually more engaging and interesting.... something I would stop at and inspect closer if the photo were on display. For the cropped version, well its ho-hum. Probably just glance over without stopping.

Like the original - good black and white
Ya but sometimes it is the lost of context that you want precisely. And it can be exploited to give a sense of novelty to something too familiar, or to let people see something new in the familiar. So bottom line is again, not the tools nor techniques, but the use of these to fulfil your intent and whether you did it effectively. Thus, ironically, a picture cannot be seen without a context for any meaningful criticism.Originally Posted by solarii
@ stoned, no I don't mind, you don't have to remove it, its good to have something else to compare.
I personally prefer the un-cropped version, the square one seems "unfinished" imo.
Anyways, thanks for the comments guys!
It's alright, merely a suggestion
I like the cropped version, reason being that it makes me think and ponder hard about the location.
Furthermore, the center-weighted diverging line between the greenery and the tower blocks gives the picture more depth. What is then noticeable, is the peak of the image, represented by UOB One in the background.
Both versions are effective in different ways, but the cropped version is a fresh take IMHO.

love the b&w treatment. everything seems incredibly sharp. you could do some dodging of the sky to enhance what the light is already doing.
I like the original landscape treatment of the picture. The addition of the buliding to the left gave the picture more depth, showing the park being embranced by the city/buildings.Originally Posted by Cliffy
Btw, what does wildstallion wealth has to do with anything?
@ $5000 a week, it was just worth mentioning.
I personally like the original better, no offense to anyone. The cropped version has the little foreground absent and makes the picture look rather flat..
