Constructive C&C please. I did not use flash, and still wondering how to correctly exposed to bring up the color. They were taken along Orchard Road.
Hoping to have comments on composition and exposure.

Truly Worth Waiting For .....
The blind man, tirelessly entertain the crowd to wait for appreciation ....
I think this scene is interesting, as if the lady in ads looking and waiting patiently to the blind guitarist who tirelessly played his electric guitar.
I wanna express that some dis-abled person still has spirit to continue living with efforts, while some don't (see pic 2 below). I personally think I was able to capture the elements, but I guess my technique still sucks : focus, exposure, and please advise thru your comments.
This was taken by 18-200mm, decided to take meter and focus from face of guitarist, but that made the ads lady overexposed.


Uniquely Singapore.
A beggar with her "child" sat below the campaign board. She looked healthy and not handicapped. Just sat there and did nothing ...
I think these two persons may have difficulties, but she could try to do something as per example on the first pic. I think I was also able to capture the element (words n subjects), but need advise on technique to make the scene better. (this was taken using 55-200mm VR, i think it's to slow for such low light situation. and the lady kept jerking her head).

All pics seems OOF for me. The first pic could be better if u had a CPL with you to cut the reflection off the glass.

Thanks for the comment nigel. I understand it's OOF for the 2nd pic was taken under very low light, and I had to rely on VR then (was using 55-200mm) while the subjects kept jerking her head.

Yah I wish I had the CPL, looking for one now.
I found it's hard to meter the 1st pic while the ads behind glas was much brighter than the blind guitarist. Any tips ? (BTW I'm a noob here :) )

As i wanted to capture the words, blind man, and lady looking from ads, please advise on the focusing technique.

Cheers,

pic...yep, oof...but for me, the oof does matter, the message you put forth has much more meaning than good or bad focus. besides, i could imagine it had to be a really quick shot.

Hi ahandre,

Both photo's relate well to what you are saying, but I too think much ahs been lost on them due to focus error.

Good choice of shots though :)
