1. in what area is critique to be sought?
This is my first attempt on HDR and would like some feedback on the processing aspect. i tried my best to avoid the dreaded halos and color fringing but it seems to keep creeping up on me. i think it's because it's a pseudo HDR attempt?
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
Well, as mentioned earlier, this is a HDR attempt. my intentions were to bring out the details in the clouds above the building and the walls of the surrounding buildings and at the same time, opening up some shadows hidden at the bottom of the words.
3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
Mmm.. I think nothing much can be said about this point except that it was obviously taken mid-day. right in the middle of the raffles CBD district. i was also looking for unique angles to photograph this building right here. nothing much except i was like a nut trying to get as low as possible trying to make the picture. ha-ha.
4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
Well, personally i feel that the surrounding buildings serve more as a compliment to the main subject rather than being a distraction. i could clone out all the surrounding building but it turned out weird and stuff. and i think the HDR effect could be better. but no idea how.
So, after that all being said.. All comments and critiques are very welcome and please feel free to give your opinions!
