    Default Spiral Stairs!!!~~~~~

    Hi,

    I took a picture of the colourful spiral stairs in Bugis. Wonder whether the composition works. It was slanted to show interesting perspectives. The shot was taken under the following camera settings.

    Focal : 30mm
    Aperture : F6.3
    Shutter : 1/3200
    metering : Matrix



    Enjoy, C & C welcome.

    hmmz.. is it juz mi or is the focus a little off? seems a tad shaky.
    the slanted angle is a slight different view, but it's not all that interesting? as in pple can still tell it's a spiral stairs wif a slanted view. a little too obvious if u ask mi.
    the pic also seems juz a slight overexposed.

    hi, my 2c for your post:

    1. shake causing OOF
    2. suggest to crop the picture to exclude the walls and the exteme left flight of stairs so that your subject (stairs) looks more focused

    keep shooting!

    Thank you for your comments.
    Hmm, I wonder if it is caused by my shake cos the shutter is really fast.

    I agree with you that the composition is nothing really interesting. In fact, I think the only consideration for me is just to fit as much spirals into the frame. should improve on it.

    Thanks anyway.

    Cropping is a great idea. Might have been too greedy to include everything.
    Thanks a lot. I'll be posting some more pictures. Please comment on them too.

    Colour might have been a more effective compositional tool.

    One of the stairs is red. Try contrasting that against the blue sky.
