Hey man, thanks for the comments. Glad someone understood where I'm coming from ;)

Hahha... you want to shoot @ construction site ahh... come to my area lah... the S'pore Sports School is still expanding and this shot was taken there when I drove pass. I think if you want, you can try speaking to the site sup. and see if you can take some. Just say you are a journalist-OJT :devil: Going to try that someday.. heehee..

How are you doing man.. long time no hear from ya... :) 1/2 day off today??

OT: Yeah, I'm good :) thinkgs are picking up a little at a time.. hope to do more but everything has a place in time .. heh heh. You sold off your cam gears right.. again?! What are you aiming for now? :devil:
Construction sites, sure sure... must show you this place that you can catch very interesting perspectives near the school.....

Royce, I will explain my motive and idea behind this shot after I have compiled the rest in this mini-series... do stay tuned! :)

Dun worry, everyone's entitled to his/ her comments. Some will like this shot, many will ask me go fly kite with visual crap like this one:)

Going to start a mini-series on this :)

Here's something to start it off -



Comments welcomed! ;)
Hey SniperD! I really like your approach in the image. However, the street lamp at the bottom left corner is rather distracting. Think it might be better if you crop the image a bit, to exclude the street lamp. That could also bring the crane more towards the center of the picture.

Anyway, did you underexpose your shot? Was it taken on a tripod?

actually there's a reason for leaving the lamppost there. For a scale of perspective. It may be a eye-sore for it's only bright spot amidst all the dark areas but that's the whole point of it.. Raw, unnerved and straightforward.
Thanks for the idea but I want to experiment with breaking the common convention of shots like this :)

Nope.. It was well-exposed but I toned it down using the Green Channel before saving as a grayscale file. & Nope, it's a grab shot.

Thanks for the explanation. Come to think of it, it does look a bit different. Hope you manage to master a creative technique from your experimentation! :D
