Thanks! quite a sad place. esp for some older folks still left in the estate.

if you're looking for such photo ops, the place is Hillview - bunch of old flats being re-possed by the gahmen.

some personal feelings: #4 and #6 stands out in terms of content, going by the title. the rest can be pictured in most old HDB estates, abandoned or not. #4 is good because of the framing of the protruding weeds, #6 is slightly weaker, but the mess do look intimidating in the context of HDB flats.

Noted. quite true. I actually started out with the "desolate" theme, but realised I got lost halfway - maybe too excited. Will work on composition.

Thanks for the tip!

very good series :) try to add a little edge burning to create the "mood"
personally I like #3.. would be good to have a slipper or shoe near the edge of the pic...
think maybe i should have changed colour balance a bit to get the "old" look?

slipper...hmmm...that's a good thought. Actually I took a shot of an old sandal on the grass patch, but no contrast:



din think of transplanting the shoe to the table...next time ;)

Thanks!

Hi guys,

OT again!

Just wanted to check if you are seeing the photos as sepia or black/white?

I received some prints and they turned out sepia-like. I've calibrated my monitor to match the printed Fuji Calibration Images (now my monitor a bit reddish) and the images in PS looks similar to the prints i.e. sepia-looking, but colour is not what I want leh...wanted it black and white :(

apparently that was what i thought at first as well..

the pics look abit reddish.. maybe u can play around with the colour balance in Adobe PS. like reduce the red for shadow, midtone and highlights..

hmm hey, can i ask what were ur cam settings? i'm fed up with grainy pictures.

anyway nice series! very desolate feeling.

Thanks! I was using mostly apertures between f2.8 and f8. ISO 200. Aperture priority. faster apertures cos I suffer from camera shake :(

Not sure if you're interested, you can actually download an EXIF viewer plugin for Internet Explorer at http://ak.no-ip.com/EXIF/. I leave my EXIF data intact, so you can right click and look at the settings. Applies for other photogs who don't remove the EXIF data as well.
