    Too purple-ish.
    Can i ask whats ur focus?
    If its the dynamic sky, u might wanna go closer and crop away the construction works at the bottom. =)

    No worries, we'll all learn as we go along..

    When ppl say its not nice, there must be a reason.
    What were their reasons?
    Do you know why you took this?
    What is the main attraction / attention of the picture?

    Colours play important part in photos, either you bring out the colours, or in BnW, that becomes ppl's 1st impression, naturally. Feel free to browse around other works, and make an honest comparison.

    I'm also learning like you are keep on shooting!

    Like I mentioned somewhere else, even if you were presented with an opportunity for a photograph (e.g. nice sunset, blue skies, clouds to kill for, etc), you'll still need to design the composition to complement your main intentions. Otherwise, its just a waste.

    Back to the photo, the near monotonous (cept for the blown out highlights) doesn't really grab attention or make people take a second look. Its just...... uninteresting. The highlights are just too uncomfortable to look at. This photo will be so much interesting if the train was not stationery (just a ray of light). Capturing some light trails along the road in the foreground would add to the composition as well. Colour being off might not be a bad thing afterall...... if you know how to use it well and to your advantage.

    No problem, just remember to do your homework. 1001 examples in here and flickr, go ahead and see see look look, their EXIF data and composition, and ask yourself what makes you attracted to the photos; colours, compostion or..?

    Its ok to copy; its how I start off too.

    ...and the sun doesnt always set nicely everyday hor..

    LOL!
    did the clouds look like a turkey?
    haha. anw, you said some people commented that it wasn't nice.
    what was your focus point? you titled it as Jurong East Mrt, but the skies were more attractive.
    well, i guess it's becos the picture is too 'flat'. if you could take it from another angle revealing the lines of the mrt tracks, as well as having those dramatic skies as background, the whole story would be different.
    just my 2cents worth.

    keep shooting!

    Just my teeny weeny bit of comment here!

    Was wondering if the focus was on the sky with sunset, maybe the purple wasn't that nice. Would prefer the natural sky color from the sunset. If the focus is on the MRT tracks and MRT itself, maybe another angle might work instead of taking a direct shot since the construction is quite distracting. :P Else it would be better if the shot was taken when the MRT came into the station and not just the body.

    That said, maybe can work on the composition. Just my teeny weeny bit of comment. We are all learning. Keep shooting and getting feedback and we will be on the right track to taking some nice photos!
