Thread: Bedok Reservior Sky

    Default Bedok Reservior Sky

    Hi all, I would like some feedback and comments for the pics below. This photo is taken at Bedok Reservior and the sky and clouds were great that day. I took the photo in portrait so as to create a vast sky feeling.



    When I was editing the pic back home, I somehow accidentally resized the photo when I set it as my wallpaper. The resulting image has the land being stretched but has more portion of the sky IMO.



    So i would like to have your comments of the images and which you think is nicer.
    Also do u feel that the trees are underexposed?

    Hmmm, in my humble opinion, find the second one better. It gives me that "vast" feeling when looking at it. The first one is a tad too constricted. =) However, the second one though giving that "vast" feeling has the trees looking flat and squished.

    The clouds look a little sporadic too....a little thin if i might add, but that isn't your fault. We can't control nature XD. Haha. Had the clouds have more definition and maybe some activity at the background (joggers, etc) it might make for a more interesting shot!

    Do take note of the vigenetting on the top corners of your pics. And yes, the trees do look underexposed to me as well, either that or your white balance seems to be in the wrong setting casting a blue hue over ur pic.

    The 2nd photo is more appealing to me, though the trees looked squashed. gives a better feeling of vastness in the sky too. Try shooting with a wide angle lens

    You also have some dust spots on the top right side near the clouds. You might wanna clean your sensor or remove it during post process.

    Thanks for pointing that out. The pic is a HDR pic maybe thats why it cause a blue hue. And yes my sensor has lots of dust on it will have to take it to clean soon. Guess will just photoshop the dust out for now. Thanks!

    i like the second pic tooi wud have preferred a panoramic shot of the scenerycz the extra sky is just to harsh, from the rest of the pleasant looking pic the clouds are blurry at the top tooo........i wud frame the shot just an inch abouve the trees,or crop it if possible to get that panoramic effectthe exposure is spot on,on the land part...
