my initial idea was to just shoot the red bridge. somehow, it didn't fall into place just having the bridge alone. firstly, with just the bridge alone it was extremely tricky - a leading line that didn't lead to anything was fine, but this leading line just didn't work whether i went high, low. maybe it could work with a foreground, but foreground was scant, if you have been to the location. even if there was, i didn't quite like that bridge by itself. i was actually thinking about just doing a less gentle leading line with less of the bridge and just cropping it square - something like what you see on the right side. somehow that seemed a wee bit boring.
at the sunset timing, i suddenly came up with the idea of pano to solve all these problems, to have the eye have more to look at. the hdb flats seemed fine on their own, the bridge seemed fine on their own. but neither of them seemed particularly appealing.. just one of those "ok, nice, but yawn" responses in my mind. so i thought, maybe the eye wanted to look at more than just a red bridge or a bunch of reflected hdb flats... maybe lumping both together might work, and it somehow was less boring for me.
breaking it down compositionally, this is something like a diptych in one photo, there are two photos, but i guess they work well together because as you say, the bridge leads to the centre, and the houses. the cloud positioning also helps - i suspect a different cloud formation might have changed this somewhat.
Ok, Im going to bedok reservior and try sunset with bro. jacob. never try sunset there before..
