This photograph was taken at 12.20pm on Sunday, 22 April 07 at East Coast Park.
I had gone there just after church because I had seen the beautiful blue skies and clouds. It's a good thing I also had my polariser with me.
The title is borrowed from a line from the song 'Fast Car' by Tracy Chapman.
On hindsight, i'd have cropped out distracting parts of the photo such as the unnecessary leaves at the top.
18mm f/14 1/1000 ISO100

1. in what area is critique to be sought?
I would like comments as to how I can improve the composition and also further suggestions as to how I can post-process the image to bring about different effects. I am not very well versed with Photoshop, so I'd like to learn more. Thanks!
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work? / 3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
When I saw the couple at East Coast Park, spending time together and watching the beautiful scene by the beach, it made me think about what it means to have someone to watch the world go by with.
The two key things that I hope speak out in this photo are 1) the beautiful blue skies and beach setting (complemented by the sea and two trees) and 2) the couple, together enjoying the beauty set before them.
4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
I liked the colours of the that presented itself to me that day, and the sheer simplicity of the couple sitting together.
This is my first post in the critique section
Thanks, in anticipation of your constructive feedback!
