    patience my young padawan...
    I notice u complained only after 26 hours and during the 1st day of new year some more... there wasn't many ppl around online... cept me n pentiumpc... LOL
    As for seeing your pic, I looked at it twice . Not bad, but I didn't see anything to criticise, except maybe the cyan signature is out of place, which is a niggling detail and I wanted to go out already...

    how to improve:
    + add bats
    + add bat droppings to the left arch
    + add 2 fire torches on both arches
    + add cracks to the exterior
    + destroy inner arch door, create dust and smoke
    + add cob webs



    ok honestly i think its a very good shot,
    but in my personal perference i would prefer something less tight, if i keep looking at this shot, the overal feel is a tight neck looking up, abit of an uneasy feeling. could be me. but the mood is well expressed, if what you want to convey is rather dark and morbid.
    refer to top of my message for more info. heheee

    Don't stop posting ... Taking photo is for self-fulfilment, posting is for fun, comments .... er.... no comments.

    I think CNY everybody has been busy..... and everybody is someone...

    Will comment on your pics the next time you post... just don't complian about the quality of the comment.... hope I don't have to be someone to comment..

    Cheers and Happy New Year.


    Try posting in both "www.photo.net" together with "www.clubsnap.com". I usually get much constructive comments and tips from the former. Hope this helps.

    Is there some vignetting here? :|

    Vignetting? Ummm.. not sure but it appears that the top left-hand corner of the frame seems a little darker. Could be the dark shade of the tree leaves in the foreground.

    Post processing was the unsharp mask. I scanned this shot from a 4R matt print which I think I misplaced. Can't seemed to find it.

    I was really lucky that day when I shot this photo when the sky came out clear. I used a polariser to enhance the saturation and I guess it did help.

    Yeah, I'm referring to "Clubsnap" as a good place to post photos. Another good place will be "Photo.net". However, I usually post my photos in the latter. Maybe I'll post some here next time. Cheers.

    the angle seems narrow enough but perhaps it's just the polariser at work at a different angle. after all the building looks pretty bright so the sky could have relatively been polarised to black.

    Awesome! RedDevil7. This is a powerful shot. Never thought of this angle. Thanks for the inspiration! I will go back to the cathedral to get this shot too!

    Oh, you're flattening me....thanks

    And this is what I called learning. We photograpghy should learn from each other...keep learning and we will improve!
    RedDevil7, your shots looks interesting, however I have a feeling that something is amiss from the pic...... what do you think?

    lazyfiddler, looking forward to your posting...

    Tricky exposure calculation.But i think its either u expose the inside or outside, so nothing is wrong since your emphasis is on the whole structure by the way you crop.

    But its a bit lob sided.. i know its not easy taking from that angle..hhee

    Oi.. you PM is full..

    OK, I've cleared the mailbox.

    What I've in mind while taking this picture -
    Beside showing the "Majestic feel" of the building , you will notice that there 2 entrances, one leading to another.....the door in door feeling.....

    Just my thought.....

    thanx for the compliment. unfortunately the right side of the sky is 2 cloudy. it would b much nicer if its a clearer blue sky. should have waited for the clouds 2 move away. in fact the winds were blowing them from right 2 left dat afternoon.

    for yr case it should b much easier if u have a wa lens. i had 2 strain my neck n get down so low 2 the ground. lol...

    no seriously dat was a pretty good shot on yr part. i seriously dunno wat else is missing from my pic. care 2 enlighten me? i'm learning as well. maybe since the few of us share a common interest 2 shoot abstract n landscapes, we can gather 2 try our luck together.

    He is referring to my mailbox...not you.

    OK, after looking at your B/W version, I think I know the answer.
    It the black color portion (at the lower part) of your picture that is distracting and offers somekind of uncertainy feeling....

    Definitely, the B/W version is much better, its cover up the "flaw" in your previous one.

    Keep shooting and keep learning.
