1. in what area is critique to be sought?
Contrasts and reflection. I took many shots but failed to find one where my reflection is whole when i bump the contrast to create greater segregation between the colors.
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
Never really thought of this but being a student... this is what SS emphasizes haha. The merlion symbolizes Singapore, the many colors represent the many ethic groups, culture, qualities of our tiny nation. I'd like people to look at my picture and feel that Singapore has a large diversity of residents, cultures and groups of people
3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
Crowded area with not much room to work with. Late at night at around 10+pm. At that point in time I was feeling both tired and annoyed by people who constantly throw flashes into my long exposures.
4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
Theres much work to be done to increase the contrast and sharpness of the merlion and reflection of it.
