1. in what area is critique to be sought?
Composition. Whether it would be better to crop off any of the sides (and from which angle - left, top left, bottom left, right?). How I can achieve what I want in #2. Would it be better if I had left it in colour (click link to picture for original colour version)?
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
Convey the same sense of somethingness (loneliness? sadness? remorseful? just thinking? break from work?) that the single person in the picture is feeling, and set the reader wondering about the subject.
I wanted to maintain the large spaced area in the photo thus I did not crop off from any sides (breaking rule of 1/3 for subject).
3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
It was raining outside of Suntec, there was a wide secluded area and I had my ultra wide angle with me when I saw the person, just hanging there for a long time. I converted the colour picture to B&W to increase the mystery of what the subject in the picture is actually thinking.
4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
Why else would I put a picture up for critique if I didn't like it, or thought it had potential. Hahaha.
