    Default Yet Another Singapore Skyline


    larger size

    1. in what area is critique to be sought?
    Composition, technique, color, and pp. I'm totally newbie on pp. I shoot in jpeg, no pp done for the pic (only cloning stamp for the right bottom part).

    2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
    I just started taking landscape pics seriously few weeks ago. I hope I can improve more.

    3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    The picture was taken around 7pm, after the rain stopped.

    Shooting Information
    Shooting Mode : Manual mode
    Shutter Speed : 10
    Aperture : f11
    ISO : 100
    Focal Length : 16mm
    White Balance : Auto

    Camera : Pentax K-x
    Lens : SMC DA 16-45mm f4 ED AL

    no pp.... in my opinion, this is a really well taken photo. Other than tiny bits of clipped highlights, the photo generally is well exposed. Colours looks great. You have taken good care of the verticals and generally it is level. No "chopped" buildings and reflection. Just one thing, the general balance of the photo is a little left heavy. Unless, it is for an intended effect, such landscape shot is preferred to have the fulcrum placed right in the middle and a balance looking photo.

    Thanks coolthought. Yes, my intention was to include the bridge inside the frame, long enough so that it won't look like it's chopped.

    I added contrast and sharpness in my custom image camera's settings. Well, to think about that, in-camera post processing is pp also

    I think I got what you mean about centre fulcrum. Thanks coolthought.

    I find the colours of the reflection a little too strong. So strong, that if you turn it upside down it would actually make a good second picture.
    Enlighten me...

    Thanks MRSAMO. After you mentioned it, now I realize the reflection is too strong.

    The reflection in the link coolthought gave, looks much better and calmer: http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showp...&postcount=105
