Thread: MBS Skypark Panorama

  1. #1

    Default MBS Skypark Panorama



    1. in what area is critique to be sought?
    Tripod not allowed so best I could do with holding my breath and ISO sky-high.
    Looking for feedback on composition, mood and Panorama editing. Just trying to improve.

    2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
    To feel that I am back up there again and again.

    3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    taken w/o tripod, iso at 1200 and D7k. 3 shots panorama with some freehand adjustment on CS.

    4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
    Like this composite best out of 100s of tries. Manged to straighten the building on right but left side this is the best I could do. Did not like the lens diffusion and noise but without a tripod I have to make do with this.

    Thanks
    Any comments would be most welcomed.

    Underexposed, and it looks like the subject is the big, empty, marina bay. The railings, etc at the bottom part just distract from the image. I would only have kept the top half of the photo.

    TS, the picture is seriously underexposed and the railing/glasses is defintely a spoiler. What and exposure time and F-Number you set for this picture?
    D700 * 70-200 F/2.8 VRII * 24-120 F/4 * 50 F/1.4G * SB900

    Photo too tight. Should add more space to the left and right.
    Underexposed. No Vibrance at all.

    The angle is nice. Have potential to make a good photo.

    Thanks for your CC.
    The exposure looks better before I upload. But I agree with the railing blocking the bottom, I was just trying to create some depth in the picture.
    Shoot taken with Lens 18-105mm@18mm, ISO1600, 1/20sec @f4.5.

    Advice are welcome.

    But he said that tripod is not allowed? Is this true? Haven't been up there but I wanted to go very badly but I can't due to NS.. If no tripod is allowed then it's really a wasted trip..

    For the picture, the huge large empty marina bay would add to the picture only if there are reflections but for this case its totally dark. And the buildings surrounding the bay are also underexposed and the railing is a distraction.

    If you bring one and use it without anyone looking/complaining, it's OK. If are a good citizen and ask for permission, they'll tell you NO. If you get a super siau-on guard around, don't even think about it!

    After being up there twice last year, it's not really worth the money...unless you have NDP/NYE fireworks and/or the construction behind ECP completed.

    As for the photo, I wouldn't really say it is underexposed. It's more like shooting at the wrong time of the day. Best time to shoot will be around 6.45pm to 7.30pm, where the lights are up and the sun has just gone down.

    Hi all,

    Thanks for your feedback.
    I did have my tripod with me but I did not want to make a fool of myself because I have friends from oversea with me. But I did saw a security telling an AngMok to keep his tripod.
    By the way, because of the full height glass wall at the skypark with just a small window to put your camera through, it is really hard to setup tripod and position it at the window.
    I saw many ppl like me carrying the tripod but did not set it up.
    As for the timing of the shot, I was too late and missed the golden dusk hours.
