    Default I am thirsty

    Hi all,

    I saw this tree and find that it is very unique. My wife told me that the tree is very thirsty .

    I was trying to make this pic feels like a poster colour painting.

    Comments please, on composition, techniques and feel. Thanks.

    Immediately at a glance, i knew where u took it...

    Its along the park toward "Durian" at Marina Sq rite?

    Nice pic. but the saturation of da colour is too high.

    Should increase contrast, lower satuation using graphic software.

    Hi SpaceParadise,

    Thanks for coming by. Its along Singapore River behind Marina Sq.

    Btw, I purposely up the saturation for Poster Colour feel. Contrast not enough? Ok, will try to up contrast and see how.

    Thanks for your input!

    I kind of like the pic, well captured. I would interpret it with some candid imagination..... "Erggggh, So near yet so far "

    Hello JZ, thanks for coming by and also your comments. May be I should post the pic with the normal saturation and contrast

    Is there a bright spot in the water on the right?? Clouds opening for the sun ray to shine thru??

    I believe the sky effect may be better with a lile help from certain fiilters..

    Hey zac, thanks for coming by.

    Erm, there was indeed a cloud opening, but actually the water are all the same brightness. I PP the water to match the cloud opening...

    And yes, a filter will really help to expose the sky properly. But I forgot to bring my CPL....
