    one of those shot to death photo. anyway, what is it that attract ed u to press the shutter? was it the durain, marina city, water reflection or the scence as a whole?

    is there a reason u chop off the durain? is the inclusion of the top of madrian behind the durain done on purpose? i find the side wall of the ritz carlton very distracting, what if you chop away the ritz carlton instead?
    photography makes one sees things from all angles.

    Too tight a crop.

    At least include the whole Esplanade. It's like the main focus of attention and then you chop it off a little..

    Is your lense dirty? There seems to be a black patch at the right top area.

    I'm all in for zooming in for details or not including the entire building..... but this is too tight for comfort. In this case, cropping off part of the buildings doesn't work at all as its gives the impression that either you don't have a wider lens or you couldn't step backwards any further.

    woa.. i didnt know theres so much to take note of in a photo shot. i think i have a long long way to go in understanding the art of photography. Thanx for the note too.
