Thread: Overdone Shots

  1. #1

    Default Overdone Shots

    No flames intended, but what are the kind of shots you guys think that are seriously overdone and are getting boring?

    Personally, i've got a few on my list.

    1. Esplanade
    2. Boat Quay
    3. Insect Macro
    4. Flower Macro
    5. Shenton Way

    i do admit, some of those shots that i've seen here are excellent, to the very extent of being mesmerizing!

    But then, it's getting kinda boring viewing similar pics day in day out.

    Any peeps here have suggestions to getting interesting pictures in Singapore?

    Giantnookie, you can learn from lance, or you can learn by yourself through practising.
    What camera are you using?

    We need to explore our homeland more. I doubt some places in Singapore we have never been there before.

    Actually I thought I was overdoing the street photography bit, that's why I moved on to more mainstream stuff like insect macros...

    hehe, no lah.
    How can you over do street photography.

    There's different people around in different places with different moods and expressions.

    But those shenton way, CBD buildings, esplanade etc etc only change facade say once every 5 - 10 years? (rough estimate)

    SHoot here, shoot there still the same.

    Hehe, although some looks good, but seriously, it's getting quite boring.

    But hey, im just an amatuer, my views might differ from the pros here.

    Could probably be due to my short attention span as well.

    I don't really see the problem of some shots being "overdone". The photographer might be trying to perfect his shots. Others might be trying out this "overdone" shots for the very first time. I would rather see "overdone" and good shots rather than those who simply gave up and switched to something else when they couldn't get good shots. This is simply becos they lacked the patience and did not put in enough effort. Everyone has the right to shoot and post whatever they like. If we start to classify some shots as being "overdone", it will definitely discourage some newbies for attempting those shots and the already declining good shots in the forum might decrease further.
