    Default Night shot near Woodlands MRT



    1. in what area is critique to be sought?
    How to improve composition. Is there a better way to frame the trees and their shadows? How can the lighting be improved?

    2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
    To capture the beauty of the shadows formed by the trees over the field.

    3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    At night about 8pm, on my way to Woodlands MRT after a photo shoot, I saw the potential for taking pictures here and immediately set up my tripod and camera to shoot.

    4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
    Perhaps the light from the MRT is a bit too harsh and the shadows are not dark enough.

    All critiques are welcomed, thank you!

    sky is blown...

    if i was to take this shot, i'll probably use a ND8 Grad filter on the sky, or even stack up 1 ND8 Grad & 1 ND4 Grad to make the lower part exposed without the top part blown.

    To make an abstract shot out of this instead of a typical landscape shot, do a panorama crop, remove the sky. jus have the trees and the low level grass. If need be, you can get a ladder, go top down.

    I feel that the image is too warm. if u shoot in raw, u can adjust the temperature slider to correct it.

    I think the shadows of the trees are interesting, while the sky is quite dull. I would have forego the sky and focus on the tree's shadow. Without the sky, the warm theme in the picture is also more matching.
