Taken with my Canon 400D + 50 1.8 @ 1/125 + f5.0. Post edit : curve + sharpness + white balance + contrast + brightness
1. in what area is critique to be sought?
I would like to have comments about composition, color and post editing. I'm not really sure whether the way I took and edited my picture is good enough.
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
I want to show the sadness of people that affected civilization and industrialization. As we know, industrialization makes Singapore less and less nice beach and see without any big ships + industrial areas. In my opinion, a beach should at least give me a great horizontal of water and salt without being blocked by anything.
3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
I took this picture during a wedding photo trip to Punggol Beach. The background of industrial area really irritated me. I snapped this shoot without being approved from those 2 girls. That was a very cloudy day ( we prepared for sunset, but couldn't make it due to weather ).
4.what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
Personally, I think I over contrast a bit, but I think it suppose to be good to tell the sadness of picture. I think if i get permission from those 2 girls, I think I could make the picture more emotional.
