Thread: Sunset at Harbourfront..

  1. #1

    Talking Sunset at Harbourfront..

    It's a plain afternoon shot from the overhead highway in front of
    Vivocity. After extensive torture in GIMP, it became like this.



    C&C welcome.

    There is lack of detail of the passing vehicles on the side of the flyover. The reflection of the sun is blown. You may need to blend 2 differently exposed shots to get a good effect.

    i dont quite see a sunset except two bright lines across the frame which does not bring attention to other part of the picture because they are too dark or too white.

    still i think its possible to ps with the vehicles showing along with the sunset colourson the highway. otherwise this photo simplistically said, lacks a focal point.

    I agreed to this.

    Just to add a point.

    The bright orange light on the fly over bridge simply don't tally with the bright white sky, the bright orange light indicates the sun perhaps already pretty low and about to go beyond the horizon, how is it then the sky is still so bright and white?

    Thus, this photo gives me a strange feel and just something not right about it. I really wish I can say otherwise.

    No offence intended, just my personal opinion.

    There were clustered vehicles with headlights in the original so I chopped the entire band in the curve.. The blown reflection is over do the curve IIRC.

    could have put some text in the white sky i guess. or maybe replace the white sky with come colors.
