    1. In which area is critique or feedback to be given?
    Composition, exposure, PP skills ( i am using LR)

    2. What were you hoping to achieve with this image?
    reflection of light, starburst effect on bright light source

    3. Under what circumstance was the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    Shot @ around 8.30-10.30pm near the floating platform

    simply lovely. Loved the colours. Really nothing to criticise for me. , except btm left that piece of concrete is sticking out like a "half-sore thumb". could be great if the buildings behind the lotus are cloned away. Could be too much of a hassle and even difficult I would say.
    Canon 550D - EF-S 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS / EF 50mm f1.8 II

    Lionheart86, i am using Av mode, f16, iso 200 (i found that iso 100 gave me under-expose picture that time, so increased iso to 200), if not mistaken, exposure time is 30s (this was determined by camera since i used Av mode)

    Zenix, glad u like it. I agree what u said but in fact i have a tight angle @ 17mm. that's why i gave way the Helix a bit.


    Appreciate all the comments. I would like to know if the exposure is correct? how about the composition?

    let me start: I am sure i have saw like 50 over photographs of this view, yours belong to the better group. Looks good and well exposed. Thumbs up to you

    I will love to see the green laser to be more defined or should i say more distinct.
    Visit me on Flickr!

    Actually the blue lights went off after i took a few shots, then the lights started flicker, on/off follow the helix pattern ...i have to admit that i am damn lucky that night :-)

    i must say... the sharpness and exposure's good. because one tends to overexpose the hand-thing while under-exposing the hotel..

    but take note of where you're standing. you have buildings sticking out of the museum, and the nice reflection in the water's cut into half.

    Yes, you're right. You have good point. I will take note in the future. Thanks for your advice. :-)
