Nice shots especially the first one. I like the lighting and how the angle of the branch was captured.

Really nice, how did you get the sky so blue? Was this in Singapore at all?

Now the formal stuff out of the way...



Aesthetically the photo is pleasing, with no distractions and a clear subject. However, doesn't really make a impressionable statement to me, since it's just a pretty ordinary branch in clear blue sky.

http://forums.clubsnap.org/showpost.php?p=1385865&postcount=1 is a must read

back to the picture(s), #1 is pleasing and clearly the branch is the subject but I'll prefer the focus to be on a part of the branch. Your border seems to crop away part of the upper branches, if the branch ends there it'll be good to leave it in. ie I could see 2 ends of the branch in the pic.

as for #2, the little branch at the extreme right is a little distracting. would be advisable to crop it off. some sky gradient could be done in PP to achieve a better effect.

The branch looks lonely... especially the second one.
But I like the blue sky though. Have been trying to shot blue blue sky, but couldn't find it.

first of all beautiful tones :thumbsup:

for #1, imho you should crop away more of the top so that the attention is naturally focussed on the main branch

#2, i think a portrait format (rotate 90 degree clockwise) works better for me.

Hey, this look like a chinese painting, especially the first #1!

If you see chinese painting you will know what I meant. What you need is some chinese poem written on the left from top down.

Ah,.. yes, still need some cropping make the branch move closer to the left and lower a bit.

#1 is very good I like that, but not for #2. Maybe the branches for #2 is not that attractive.

btw, are you a very quiet person? because I am trying to understand people thru their photography :bsmilie:

Hey guys, thanks for the comment. Yes, now i do think that the #1 should crop more. as for no #2, maybe not as attractive, but it does look like a pair of super skinny hands.


vincenthau: actually not really. I'm a very out going and noisy kind of girl. but very homely, and I love nature.
