    Default Rising Flame




    This picture taken at the Bukit Timah railway track area. Plants and bushes beside the track.
    Camera: Canon 550D
    Lens used: 18-55mm kit
    Focal length: 55mm
    Aperture: f/7.1
    Shutter: 1/125

    1. In what area is critique to be sought?
    i) Colour and composition
    ii) Whether the feeling it evokes in you is the same as what it evoked in me.


    2. What did I hope to achieve with the piece of work?
    The flower standing out from the rest of the plant life. The only flower amongst the rest of the greenery.


    3. Under what circumstance was the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    Nice afternoon sunlight (ard 3pm) cutting through the trees behind the camera and landing nicely on the flower. Initially a random shot until I realized the sunlight brought out such a nice orange colour inside the flower.

    4. What I personally think of the picture
    Really like the orange/red colour combo of the flower, making it stand out with the "ordinary" green plants in the background.

    the background is still very, very messy and cluttered.

    i can't say that i find this angle of the flower very appealing either.

    The so called leaves on the left seemed to be very distracting...

    As the flower seems not fully grown yet, thus does not make it attractive. As mentioned by others on background, same view.

    At least you should have used a larger aperture for more background blur. Maybe your 50mm prime would be a better choice.
