    Default Singapore Flyer up-close

    A different perspective.

    Went there for the first time today. Great weather today too

    The sky over expose on the top right, If you use a CPL the effect of the clouds will be very nice.

    Anyway the clouds are nice. A CPL will even bring it to the next level. Cheers!

    The sideways composition doesn't work for me. Like someone else said, it gives the impression that the wheel is falling, instead of it standing tall (and flying...it's called a flyer what...hurhur). The idea of a different angle is nice, but maybe if it weren't so extreme (i.e. still canted/slanted, but not by that much), it would be less disturbing to the viewer. Might I also add that the highlights in the top right hand corner are totally blown? It's not a pleasant overexposure, but a glaringly harsh one.

    Also, was your sky's blue tone subject to postprocessing?
