    Door to Heaven?



    Taken using Nikon F80s and Ilford Delta 100.

    Well I do feel that if there was something there in the "door" it might be better. Like someone walking towards it that kind of feeling?

    The b/w sky doesn't give a heavenly feeling. A color one may be better.
    Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field.

    good observation there.. I like the lighting and the gradual lights. Did you try stopping down to get better contrast?

    My take: try to approach this in a more factual/ symmetrical sense by framing it square. The current framing doesn't really work for your title but still I like the shot, the tonals are very appealing.

    Where's this place btw, care to share?? Thanks!!

    Hi Alex,

    This is an interesting shot with an unusual perspective. I think that your concept can be made bolder if the sky was more apparent, say by having more texture in the clouds. Furthermore, the 'T' shaped pipe at the lower part of the picture may confuse viewers because they normally would not expect to find such a pipe on the ground obstructing walking movement towards the door. Commendable effort nonetheless.

    Cheers,
    you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye

    SniperD: Nope. I did not stop down. Noted of your view on this picture.
    Thanks! Re-shoot!

    zaren: Thanks. Maybe i try dodging and burning in Photoshop to bring out the sky. .

    Taken at China Square Central, near Hotprint. Walk along Hotprint from Hong Lim, turn left you see a pathway(there a mini-garden), look up, you will see this. Hope it helps.

    See this, it on the right.

    Don't work for me. Nothing's happening.

    I'll give you credit for your developing though, if you did it.
