    Default Sultan Mosque



    Greetings all, this is Sultan Mosque, one of the oldest Mosque in Singapore, build in 1928 and the largest mosque in Singapore The light on top of the main dome is actually the street lamp. Got pretty irritated with it so decided to adjust my camera's position till it coincides with the tip of the dome.

    The reflection on top of the car looks good and bad. I dont know

    I would love to hear from you any form of critque with regards to the composition, I always had a problem with it, and more tips about taking night black and white photography.

    Thanks all!! Will continue to work on any of the critques!!

    Pic is slanted. The star effects is to big... Look messy to me.

    The lights are too strong and contrasty. The whole composition is cluttered. You shot over something shiny(a car?), the reflection does not help in this instance where there are already so many elements vying for attention. Of course, there's the tilt.

    Thanks all for your comments! So if the background is pretty cluttered, I should not set the aperture size too large and avoid the stars?

    But you still have to stop down enough to ensure adequate DOF.

    Slanted how? The side towers arent straight as the main dome from this angle. Dont just say slant and go away, at least tell me how to correct it!

    i also think the star is way too big, and these stars makes the composition feels messy.
    photography makes one sees things from all angles.
