1. What area is critique to be sought?
Composure, exposure, etc...
2. What one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
When I saw this snake (python) escaping from the basket it was kept in, thus captured the scene.
Some children/ladies standing nearby were screaming and shouting with excitement. Snake is s creature that most people are quite frighten of.
3. Under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
Photo taken during visit to Sentosa Underwaterworld. This Indian man was doing business by charging visitors for taking photos with the snakes he has (1 yellow and 1 black/grey pythons). The man was busy attending to customer with his black/grey python, he left the yellow python in the basket, somehow it escaped from the basket. Time is 3pm and under shelter.

4. What the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
There are some distracting objects at the background. I missed the chance to shoot front view of the snake showing both eyes and snake tongue sticking out, as I am quite wary the snake might suddenly strike at me. :sweat:
