Hi guys, its been awhile since i last uploaded a picture on the critique corner. So i have a picture here which i feel it lacks depth and want your inputs so i can retake the picture soon.
1. in what area is critique to be sought?
Purposely manipulate the picture in PS to give that vintage look, therefore a slight colour tweak was done. A slight dodge and burn was done on the black outlines to give that 'eerie feel'. A longer exposure (25secs) was done to show the blur movement of the clouds as shown.
Now the question is, does everything mesh up altogether nicely, which i feel it just lakes depth. Hmmm.
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
I was there doing some light painting *go google up for those who don't know* with a friend before an idea struck me.
With time, the war memorial monument stands there without people like me who passesby/sit/etc there knowing those who are being remembered.
Its like a passing time, a memory distant to us, which we don't even know, stands there, and i bet half of us doesn't know what actually happened to these men *sorry lah, just went through my 2nd ict last week and somehow i feel patriotic ahh.
3. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
Give me and honest opinion on just what it lacks of. Which i think depth. But i can't figure out what.. gahhhhhh..!!
