Bangkok...Through the eyes of Nicholas Khoo

Post by nicholas_khoo on Sun 08 Jun 2008, 22:50

**BEFORE U CONTINUE WITH THE PHOTO VIEWING, PLS KINDLY ADJUST UR SCREEN TO THE MAXIMUM BRIGHTNESS TO ENSURE CORRECT LIGHTING EFFECT AND COLOR RENDITIONS. THANK YOU.**

This trip is taken in May with a friend who is learning photography. As an amateur in digital photography, we took whatever we did, MAINLY, focusing on FRAMING, ANGLE OF PERSPECTIVE AND LIGHTING EFFECTS.

Nice capture of the cup. even the scratches on the table can be seen but too simple a subject.

Nice colours captured of the Tuk Tuk nicer still is the contrast it shows against the mysterious background.

The Bus Stop has a slight distraction on the bottom left.

I prefer the Silky Thorns in B & W, hmm dunno why Razz

Red Bud background is too distracting.

I would crop the bottom of the Devotees just below their hands to the arms of the Buddha to hide the distracting lower foreground.

I won't shoot Playing Time, too many subjects.

Golden Silence is fantastic.

Singha Beer should be near our friend and he should appear drunk beholding the glass. Razz

Getting Married has a nice mood.

Lost is nice but our friend looks amused rather than lost. Razz

I love this panning shot but the title ain't apt because there isn't any Traffic Jam. The reaction of the Tuk-Tuk driver is attractive to the photo.

Wedding Gown is one clever and nice shot.

Evening Rain is very nice it looks like a scene straight out of a Humphrey Bogart movie.

Concentration is a nice shot with a good lighting from the window complementing the mood.

Tha Wat Muang Khae Quay, phew I almost twisted my tongue, the focus should be on the background with the leaves blurred instead.

River Cruise is a very nice and serene shot.


Apologies, if I had said something silly or incorrect. Thank you for sharing your photos Nick. Razz

hi saymell,
Thank for the comments. I'll take note of some of the pics that u commented. Hmm...i'm actually still learning to correct my perspective vision on how to capture an object...hmm...sometimes i'm lost as to what to compose a photo.

Hey, when will u post some of your works in here? Like to see them sometimes.

Cheers!
p.s: Your criticisms are good. It made me learn more about my shots and what i should have done.

All are nicely captured. Colors, framing and composition. Only thing is #16 doesn't match with the caption.

Hey ... i am a newbie too .... but just my little C&C
Pictures

1 - can see you are using a wide lens. so the cup looks flat at the top and a little distorted at the bottom- out of shape. should watch out for that. can go further away and zoom in.

2- Nice Very Happy

4 - nice. no prob with it Very Happy but i would zoom in and only leave those spiky things in the frame and you have an abstract !

5- the plant colours a little dull ... make can Photoshop to make the red more contrasting

7 - too many subjects with high contrast - distracting.

10 - nice use of framing

12 - nice panning ! sharp

22- nice but should try to get the whole lens in the picture

25 - nice sky ! should try to leave the building tip out. like the the other post ... leave it in or out .. not half unless abstract. like for 27 the boat out is fine as the main thing the chair is in !



anyway great pictures. i have not done travel photography before

I pretty like Tuk Tuk and Step right on~

Did you HDR most of your shots? Need to note the luminosity if so.

As for Step Right On, did you use a tilt shift lens? Nice~

Alamak Nick too many pictures lah. Concentrate not on quantity. Each time showcase from 3 to 5 lah. I and you got alot of work in 'Engines' you know. Razz

Boat Quay has a nice perspective but the building in the background (left) spoils the picture. Actually you can lower yourself and concentrate on the walkway.

Cruise in Style has a nice "framing" but the head in the foreground spoils the picture.

Guided Cruise has a nice 'compo' but the focus should be on the guide and flash should be "on" to highlight her, instead the focus falls on the guy whoo looks at the camera.

Pink Cab colours are a bit dull.

Shooting Inside is lovely, I love it.

The Young King should be in portrait and a closer crop doing away with too much white sky.

Washed and Browned would be nice if the boat in the foreground is not present.

Looming Clouds has nice sky hues but the "penis" shaped thing distracts. Razz

The Boat Keeper is nice, I like it but the background should have more blur to isolate the main subject.

Step Right On I don't quite like the "compo" everything is too centred.

Souvenir Shopping I love the mood.

hey, thanks for your comments. Will take note of them.

No, they are not HDR shots. It's taken mostly during the mornings or evenings where the sun direction is more definite. So, when i take the pics, i face away from them or if possible, create a silhouette shot.

Yes, for step right on, i used a tilt shift lens method.

Thanks!

Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your pics here. I must say I enjoyed viewing them and I think you have a good eye for details. Though some of your pics look a little bit under on my calibrated screen, I think they add a bit mood and story which is good. Overall, the composition and editing are fine with me.

My concern is that putting all of them wholesale like that is a bit too much for me. After a while, they just look like snapshots. I think presentation is a very important aspect to learn as well. Maybe you can choose a few good ones that means a lot to you or group all into a common series which would help to tell your story better. E.g. Things to shop, places to go, where to eat... etc. One way to make your photo more interesting is to put in captions or write a little about it. It gives the reader some sense of direction. Another thing which irks me a little is the size of the title and black border. I find it a tad overdone and somehow distracting. I don't think you need to put them all into your pics. My suggestion would be to keep it consistent and keep the text small or don't put them at all. Give it a try and let me know if it works for you.

Hope no offense taken. Cheers! Very Happy

hi Hazmee,
thank u for your comments. I will take ur advise on the border and he arrangement of my pics. Hmm...am still trying hard to learn to be like Zoossh in clubsnap. His travel shots are phenomenal. Just find that hard to imitate.

Thanks again for taking the time ! I've still got lots to learn from u too!

Criticism are very good for me. I prefer criticisms and hear about opinions than praises...as i wont learn from praises...

So! feel free to criticise my pics!

Cheers!! Razz
