1. In what area is critique to be sought?
Composition

2. What one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
Trying out Landscape photography and hence want to know if I had done the composition right.

3. Under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
Took this photo at around 10pm. Camera on tripod.
Shutter speed - 30s
f/16
iso - 250

4. What the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
I had allowed a large area above the building to show-case the light beam. By using slow shutter speed in hope to obtain a smooth water surface.

A good angle of view. Allowing space above to let the viewer see the way the beams project project into the night sky. Brings out the grandeur of the buildings. Composition is not confined to the Rule of Thirds but looks balanced.

If you can increase the saturation slightly, i would definitely like to hang it in my living room. Thanks.

Very nice! The signature maybe don't put so central.

i think its fine... maybe the light in the bottom left side near the dome side, is too near the edge.. crop too much?

i'm glad it is a balanced composition.

Dont really know where to place the watermark so just put it at the centre. I may reduce the size and place it at the right-bottom corner next time. Thanks.

I find that distracting too but can't get it off in-camera. I think I will try post-process it tonight and see how it goes.

Din crop it really. Perhaps I should to remove those lights at the bottom left instead. Thanks.

looks a little tilted.
Good eye-sight. Just a bit i guess. Thanks.

Tried to convert it to mono and burn the highlight so that the lower left-hand corner is not too distracting. Also increased the contrast of the overall picture.
Do you think it looks better in mono? Please C&C :D

The mono is more gentle to the eyes. The original one i loved the blue lights but the bottom street and building lights were too strong..

agree with hotchoco1ate. i prefered how the sky in the original one turned out. then again, you can't have everything, the sky would've been too dark if you reduced the exposure of the lights just above the water

many thanks for the comments. :)
I tried the combination of the blue lights and the monotone. Personally, I felt it looks a bit weird. What do you think? :D

Guess the whole thing being mono would be better than the one with blue lights.

I like it in mono as it emphasizes the lines more and drawing the viewer's eyes to the lights beaming out from the MBS without being distracted by the less significant lighting, i.e. window lights. Don't think the combo of blue lights and mono works coz somehow it doesn't gel very well and makes the overall composition look weird.. just my thoughts. :)

I dunno abt others, but the first thing that struck me here is that is slanted. And its distracting me a lot, thus contributing to me not really appreciating the entire pic. It seems to throw off the balance of the total pic as a whole.
