    "think without the construction the overall will be better.".... agree...

    The purples seem to be properly exposed ..... but at the expense of the brighter areas which are overblown (construction site and the underside of the roof).... suggest exposing for the brighter areas and bracketing ... or dialing up your EVs from there

    Too many elements competing for attention in your image......... choose one

    a. the hotel
    b. the bridge
    c. the construction site

    Sure you can attempt to include all 3 elements but you will need to look for a 'line' or 'flow' that connects all 3 properly

    best of luck !!
    shaddap and just shoot .... up close

    That cucumber looking stuff is a sky park, so do give some sky to it.

    Knowing that the construction site is an eyesore ( before or after taking the picture ? ) should have avoid it completely.

    Try to shoot the Sands from somewhere due East, it is more interesting.

    Do your nite shot a bit early next time.

    The shape and outline rsemble much to either...

    a cucumber, or a peeled banana...need no hard imagination actually.

    But it takes a different form when view from the city hall and even more drama from due East, view across the otherside from the Marina Barrage ( or should say the river mouth ) also very exciting from Tanjong Rhu.

    i am still quite new, how to i juz reduce the exposure for the roof and construction site?

    agree that there is too many elements, will take note of this, maybe will juz "emphasize" juz one.

    haha the flow maybe thru more CC i will be able to understand more.

    thanks alot!

    noted on giving more sky to the sky park.
    i cant find a nice angle that is able to avoid the construction but i will be zooming in more to avoid it.
    shooting for abit of the east side (at the stadium side? ) it is being block up. no access unless climb. haha

    will look for more angle before taking shot. thks

    Not 3 pillar...

    but if you had seen those wooden cloth peg ( getting less nowadays ) and you place them upside down you will have an idea. Need to imagine it becomes large size.
