taken in SBC, are you a student there?

the pic doesn't go with your title - It should be something more abstract or dynamic.

a point and shoot approach cannot work.

well it is not just oof, the composition is also out

dun get ur title.

thou = you. right?

and i believe ur idea might benefit if it was shot wider, with a lot more sky.

i thought the colors are pretty dull and unexciting. if this is what ur vision is, it sure is sad.

Thanks for all replies. Jopel, thanks - will try it.
Cheese cake, (T)hou here is refer to the cross, which represent Jesus Christ - dull color - represent the suffering that He bored in the cross.
Title take from the old hymn - with the traditional ancient Irish melody - 18th century. Taken in the morning - arnd 6.30 I guess... and the view from my dormitory room restrict me to that view... at that time just loved how the rising sunshine fell on the cross... but I guess it's just didn't work out is it? Too bad lah...:embrass: gotta improve my skill before my next posting :)
It's another version with a minimal resizing... last shots hehehehe... please bear my 'noobiesness' ;)

Your title and pic just made me whistle the hymn .... :)

Think you could try playing with the colors of the pic. Since its sunlight on the cross, try introducing more orange "cast" to the pic perhaps.

Just my personal views. :)

Juz a thot:

Maybe shoot within your room to show the window (darkened) to reveal the cross outside leaning on the dull background next to an overcast sky.

Sort of tells me that when I awake and look out, Jesus Christ is out there to "Be Thou my Vision".

i mean that ur title la.. not that i've any problems understanding the significance behind the meaning of the title. :bsmilie:

'Be Thou my Vision'... i think the english structure of the title is not correct?


i still think it'll benefit if it is shot much wider, i.e show more sky..
