Bliss At Orchard (Full size)
1.In what area is critique to be sought?
Seeking feedback on composition, as well as techniques. Photo taken on a Canon 1000D with a 50mm f/1.8 II.
Shutter speed: 1/20s
The slow shutter speed made the photo blur, but didn't have much choice due to lighting conditions. Didn't want to bump up ISO for fear of noise.
2.What one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
Wanted to capture an unusual moment in the heart of Orchard (taken in front of ION Orchard MRT entrance). Couple (appearing to be) blissful and oblivious to the passer-bys.
3.Under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
Was happily snapping at the ION facade when I noticed the photographer and the couple. Did a quick adjustment on my cam and managed to capture the couple under the spotlight with the photographer getting ready to snap away.
4.What the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
Thought the composition of the shot is alright: Couple well-lit under the lights and the photographer in position to shoot. However, the camera shake (no tripod) and the busy background didn't make it as ideal as I would have wanted.
My first critique. Appreciate your comments.
