I took this without a tripod.
This was taken today after shooting in chinatown.
Sadly,all did not seem to reach my expectation.



I usually have problems taking picture of landscape and city due to the many distraction sch as people and buildings.
Any advice on the composition.
It was impossible to capture the ferry as i was on 2s shutter since i did not want to use flash.
Iso was set at 200 if i remember correctly.

I think for night scene, die die must have tripod.. it's humanly impossible to hold your hands steady for more than 2 secs. Also if taken at around 6-7.30pm when the sun is setting would be better.

? fuss a problem?

well, i cannot see any picture, and from the posting , you can't really blame me for thinking that you posted up 2 pictures, no? the original post.. and then you move on to ask what someone else thinks of "this picture".. unless you are referring to said picture (which once again, i stress, i cannot see) in the original post.. which doesn't quite make sense.

well then directly request for one.
It's not surprising we had a bad war before.
actually, no, i don't remember seriously, i think you are taking these forums too seriously even if we have, because i don't even recall your user nick.. unless you're talking about some questions you asked me in the recent italy thread i put up? but there was no clashing there, no?
i don't even think we've had contact before, unless it is in kopitam :dunno:

weird, when i click on the link it tells me the connection has been reset
it must be my hall's server, i guess never mind, since most people can see it
cheers and good day

Bro Dotaboy, I borrowed your picture to repost so that our Bro night86mare can see it.

Original Photo




My adjusted photo - sharpen and adjust highlights, shadow and contrast.
Sorry it's already jpeg and reduce resolution so have some compression noise.



maybe next time can do a wider shot.

Let me know if you don't like it and I'll take it out. :)

Cheers!

I think its too dark and the horizon is tilted. I think I would move the frame a bit more to the left to capture the entire bridge (since the extreme right has some negative space).

Then I would wait a little longer for the tongkang to move a bit more to the left before I shoot. This way I would have less empty water on the left and more space for the boat restuarants.

My personal opinion.
