Thread: Sunset @ Choa Chu Kang

    Default Sunset @ Choa Chu Kang



    I personally like the dramatic feeling of this sunset..although from my house i can see the sunset across the KJE everyday..this particular sunset look very different from the rest.

    C&C are very very welcome!

    Yeah. I did PS it abit..i make the contrast slighty higher careful not to overdo it. Then the lower half actually show some trees but i darken out the whole thing.

    Didn't want to apply too much contrast cause i scare overkill ar...

    haha. yup.. so if u didn't say it was a sunset, i would think it's juz another sky shot so maybe try to pay more attention looking thru the viewfinder

    A polariser would be very helpful in a shot like that - increase saturation, make the sky a deeper blue

    whilst the sky is dramatic, i think the picture lacks a foreground interest. Perhaps the tree line could've been used more effectively. The colours are also a bit flat. some levelling and saturation adjustments would help.

    maybe it will be better if you could shot a couple minutes earlier--- more lights and more color in the sky.

    how about just using photoshop to edit? Would do too. =)

    I use polariser only to remove reflections on reflective surfaces.
