Thread: Eye on the Flyer

  1. #1

    Default Eye on the Flyer

    Hi All

    I was at the Marina Barrage recently, shooting some sunset & night landscapes. Tried for a fresh approach on the oft-photographed icon, the Flyer and found this sculpture to frame it.

    ISO 100, f13 and 25secs.

    Upped the contrast using Curves and cropped.

    Area for C&C:
    Does the deliberately aligned framing work? Or does it feel too contrived?
    I have another shot where the Flyer is offset and shot in vertical orientation. Would that work better?

    It's an interesting and good attempt, however the frame blocked out way too much of the cityscape. The sculpture is too thick I feel. I like how the Flyer stands almost right in the frame though, with another building within the frame of the Flyer.

    may i suggest a square crop?

    as it is now, the fountain on the right and landscape to the left is distracting.

    also, too much empty black space liao.
    photography makes one sees things from all angles.

    I also think a square and tighter crop would be better...

    interesting... really nice.. its definitely a good concept... but i find the 'gold ring' kinda dull due to the unpolished surface... maybe can do some touch up on the 'gold ring'... i was a little distracted by the fountains on the left bottom corner...

    Dear All

    Thanks for all the comments and suggestions.

    Besides the square crop, would this work instead?

    Mods, if posting of the second photo is a violation, pls let me know, I'll remove it.

    looks nicer if the whole picture is in focus. you could have used a smaller aperture
