Shot these on my way to work every morning during the early stages of its construction.

Oops I just read the rules and I'm suppose to write the following. So hmm...

1. in what area is critique to be sought?
Erm... I guess just about any opinion would do as long as they're honest.

2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
I hope to remind ourselves that any magnificent structure does have a history of construction. We sometimes look at a beautiful building but forget the efforts of the architect, engineers and all involved.

3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
Physical condition? Gee I was traveling at 90km/h every time I shot one of these so I guess maybe hands a bit sweaty. Plus the fact that I can't aim properly (because I have to look at the road in front of me) so I left it all to chance.

Thank you all in advance for your kind comments. Have a great weekend. :)

Yup i've got shots of every single capsule being installed one at a time but am very disappointed with my chance-framing. Oh well... we can't have everything. :)

To tell you the truth, the compositions are really not bad at all! I don't believe you shot them when you are driving. ;p

Good work.

Well to make it easier to believe, I had 92 photos shot with my right hand while the left hand stays on the steering wheel. Most of them from my old SE K750i phone and Canon Ixus. Out of these 92 photos, only 12 made it to the collage. The rest are either way off frame or blurred. ;P

An original and creative concept that tells a story, all the ingredients of a wonderful photographic work. I like the way that it has been shot in black and white, which emphasises the structural form of the flyer in its various stages of construction. A few nitpicks: in a few frames, the lamp-post merges with the flyer, part of the flyer is outside the frame. in the bottom left frame, the parapet appears much brighter than the rest of the frames (i.e. distracting). however, bearing in mind that the photos were taken with one hand while driving, it is a highly commendable effort indeed to even have achieved the framing and compositions here. :thumbsup:
