    Default Ordinary night view



    1.In what area is critique to be sought?

    As a beginner, I would like to know critiques on how the whole picture presents.

    To capture a very ordinary night scenery in a creative way.

    3.Under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)

    A usual night view I'll get from my room's window.

    4.What the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture

    I like how the glass stands out in this picture.

    I would say that the spots of lights stand out way more than the glass. The glass is pretty dark. The spots of lights are way too big. The eyes can't seem to decide on a focal point, lights, glass, or overturned HDBs?

    Unique, but the glass seeem OoF and slightly distorted (Or isit just me?)~
    If the glass was brighter and the aforementioned were corrected, I think it would make a pretty nice shot~

    I think this is quite an interesting idea. Although I first notice the spots of light, once i noticed the building in the water, and it is upside down, i felt refreshed. The problem I feel is the glass was too near the edge of the frame to make an impact on me. This meant I have to search for the reflection. My eyes started from the center because that is where the light spot was and the lights are rather colourful.

    Thanks for your comments. Regarding on the focus part, is either I choose to get the buildings in focus or glass. If I want both in focus, I would have to use a larger aperture and the background would be visible.

    I think I had a habit to always place my object on the side of the frame. If I got the time, I shall try re-compose it. Exams are round the corner ^^.

    Thanks for your comments and shall apply it the next time.

    actually. if the glass is more of your subject, then you might want to consider having the glass occupy more of the frame. composition wise, you can dump the rule of thirds because your focus is now on the interesting-ness of the upside-down buildings in the wine glass.

    you can also experiment with having a smaller aperture, but longer zoom. background blur is not only dependent on the aperture, but also on the focal length

    The framing could be better, as mentioned above.

    interesting...
    wondering how the building is inverted considering the filled wine glass is a lens only in one plane.

    wow you are right. Sharp eyes.

    To the TS:
    Prefer the glass to be more exposed. You may have to introduce some light onto the glass.
