    Personally,
    - I would like to see more details of the foreground. Currently, it's abit underexposed
    - Prefer to have more land for your foreground to "stand". Feels like about to fall out of the picture anytime soon.
    - A landscape approach may be better. But that's just me...

    Just $0.02 from a newbie


    btw, I think I saw sensor dusts (can't be sure if it is)

    Thanks for the comment!

    I actually intentionally darkens the foreground to give a silhouette effect, as the colours of the foreground are distracting.
    I agree to include more land in the foreground, seems like too much empty sky at the top (as intrance mentioned). Will take note of this the next time i shoot the same kind of scene!
    And i took a landscape shot as well, but thought this was nicer. =)

    Didn't realise the dust spot until u mentioned abt it!

    I guess nobody likes the stadium lightning? It gives me a hard time when taking this shot to avoid the spotlight from blocking the main parts of the ferris wheel.. Until i centre it in between the ferris wheel support be4 it looks less distracting. I had no idea how to PP it out as it was overlapping the tiny lines of the ferris wheel spokes. still a beginneer at PP though. Hahah!

    Nice graphic treatment! The flyer's a hard bugger to capture and silhouette seems to work well here. Why does the sky gradually become clear nearer the horizon?

    nice dramatic scene. i like how you framed the flyer/clouds.

    i only feel that the picture seems a little too tight on the left/right. it seems like the image has been stretched upwards.. maybe you have another image that includes a little bit more space on the right..? would love to see a nice big, generous scene (seeing as to how you've already included some generous space on the top of the image)

    thanks for sharing!
