thanks for the feedback... very well said.

may i know what u mean by properly balance in Pic 2? do u mean the exposure or the balancing on both side in the composition?

as for pic 1, i can digitally enhance the shadow but does it mean 'cheating'? well in this era of digital photography, enhancing makes me feel guilty.

Its not cheating for me. I live by Ansel Adam's phrase "The negative is comparable to the composer's score and the print to its performance". The picture you post is your interpretation of it and doesnt have to be a snapshot of reality.

the last four are good. they are simple and eye catching. and nice tones in a couple of the shots. in the shot with the door, placing the door off centre might be better...

thanks guy for the pointers... i'll work on it on my next project. all these are my recent project of Shadows and textures. After reading all your pointers, i'll in-corporate them in my next session. it's good to get feedback becos i'm open to ideas and critic, that's how one can improves...

oh yes, Reno77, i agree with u or rather with what Ansel Adam said... infact, in the old days, enhancement are done in the darkroom, so that means photo enhancement is not wrong... the only different is that in these days, we did it all on a Desktop PC. but in the digital era, there are another kind of photographer, one that not only enhance but manipulate. so the line gets kinda blur here...

what u guys think?

agree the color pics look out of place. i bring 3 camera out that day, a D70, and 2 vintange, Kodak Retina 1954 & Agfa Karat 1954. the below 2 pics are taken by the 50's vintages, 1/300 at f16 with Kodak T400 c41 film, it's my first time trying them out, not really good shots but i was amaze that old junk can still produce sharp photos... those cam are as old as my dad.

look pretty sharp to me too sigrd... what camera u used for this shot? ha ha the name 'Aircon City' really sound catchy rite. how many of u guys have took a shot on tat alley? own up ha ha ;p any of u guys have any idea where it's located? just a word of caution, don't be there at night, the temperature there when all the aircon are switch on can u imagine?

one think i realize in BnW photograpy is that the sky are mostly empty, any idea any filter out there to enhance the clouds in BnW pics on a hot day? i used a very old yellow filter but it seems that not much of a help sometime, it even rendered my white building dull.

SniperD, took a look at ur gallery u r very good in potraits... i'm still learning n trying to take ppl. i realized that u have a creative eye for composition, did u learn it from professional or just gets better each time? i like most of u'r shots especially the 'I Do' section, those are sellable quality.

got to learn from u liao, will be visiting ur site often for reference?

cheers

Actually the real thing is not that sharp.. I should thank uncle zaren for his PS skills instead. ;)

First outing with my 300D actually.... really amazing to see sooo many aircon units down the whole stretch.

Hi pls give me some pointers on my recent work...
excellent work!

perhaps the texture and contrast can be further emphasized in the last pic;
