    but okay, seriously, frosty and the sky are nice, just try to avoid stuff like the railings et al in the bg, they take the mystery away, this looks like vivocity to me..
    often times a photographer needs to change his/ her angle, even to the extent of lying prone, upside down or climbing to get a decent shot.

    Trigger Ur right its vivo city.

    I guess I understand what u mean about the railings and everything in the background. I actually tried to crop it but only frosty's head will be left visible . I think I need to exert more effort and try to find that best angle as you said. Don't have that ability yet.

    Thanks for the advice bro. Got to practice and shoot more. Any other comments?

    the highlights in the clouds are overblown.

    simple, kneel. having a thick skin helps when kaypos stop to gawk at you. try it a few times, then you'd get used to it.

    its easy. start by taking your camera out with you everyday (i do that 7 days a week, no joke), and shooting at anything interesting (sky, sunrise/ set, nice cars, interesting scenes, accidents etc etc). you'll find that we Singaporeans are a real gawking lot - dunno whats the big hang-up about someone with a dslr... but the point is, with each shot you take, each time you pull your camera out, you build upon your attitude and its all about you and the shot, gawkers and their comments don't matter anymore.

    sorry for the OT here, but street photography is not usually shy-shy hit and run.

    get picasa from google. its free, fast and is feature-packed. there's an effect called "soft focus" which will let you put everything out of the target area oof (you can define size and amount of fuzziness).
