  1. #1

    Default Light Trails

    Hi everyone,

    Took this near Esplanade mall. So wanna post this art of mine here to see if i can improve on it next time.=D



    1. in what area is critique to be sought?
    - Maybe feel free to talk about composition, white balance and the intensity of the light trails? Please feel free to comment! =)
    2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
    - Hopes to improve on my night life photography skills, to know where to take awesome night life and improving.
    3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    - I was kneeling down with one knee, just next to the road at ard 11pm. (emotions.. scared car bang me.) haha.
    4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
    - I think its worth a good comment, but would like to hear from the seniors more. =)

    Thank you!

    Too much of the focus is on the road. for this location, u can try shooting from a higher ground to capture the bend of the road together with the bent light trail.

    You took this on one knee? How long was your shutter speed? I havent explore night shots & long exposures so the only thing I can comment is the light streaks which is ok.

    Thank you for your suggestion! I will consider it and take some high angle shots. But is afraid of light pollution from the street lights thou.

    your light trail is not enough. 1/30 is still too fast for light trails. try 3 secs - 8 secs next time.

    i am using f18, 10 secs for this:
