    PLS.. STOP ARGUING. e photgrapher may see what you dont see, you must see through the photographers mind, something like art, I can just put up a total white poster and says its art, it defines space. But some of you will say, it has no composition. what is this? howcan a blank pice of paper be an art, but in the fact it is art. same goes to photography. To me the photographer above is trying to potray the tombstone and the flower, may be trying to say someone put a flower there for the decese, and please if give critique u must give people on your points of views that the photo will stands out.

    Who is arguing?

    And how do you see someone's mind?

    And is this dialogue not art too?

    Can you see it?

    Yes, if you can see it.

    I see you have an uncommon sense of humour.

    Let me see your "abstract piece".

    Once again, we see what we see.

    If you want someone to see what you see, then you too have to step into your viewer's mind. It is a level playing field. If you do not - or cannot - then viewer will see what they see, and no worst off for it.

    if you have to critique a piece of art with a personal preference or personal biasness then aren't you proving my point that you are not seeing the piece in which the artist has presented it in? Rather then a piece of art that is presented as it is?

    so go read my critique, and tell me if it is merely technical or something I impose into the picture and corrupting the photographer's intent or his sight. and then tell me if it is a personal biasness or not. and in any case even if it is art, there is such as bad art.

    as a qualitative title, the picture fails to communicate your idea of Kranji War Memorial.

    why?

    because there's no relationship between the flower and the place. the image of this flower
    is not capable of becoming a representative object that's specifically associated with the
    place, the flower is not culturally associated with the place.



    i see a major misunderstanding in the exchanges. no one's wrong here.
    but i think everyone needs to take a step back to cool off abit.
    indulge your senses abit, go have a nice cold beer (or juice if you don't
    take alcohol) cheers
