Hi BK, I like to see this part of Singapore and the emphasis on the boats is a big bonus. The building in the background seems slightly splayed out here, in mine they are often splayed in slightly, maybe the various lens. The POV looking along the rail is good as it makes me feel like i am there alongside you. TFS. Murray.

I Koh,
I am a little confused about this photo. I don't have much technical expertises. So, please don't mind about my interrogations, here! It is not a negative criticism. I just want to understand your mind about this photo for improve mines.
First, your POV is very nice giving a great perspective at this place. But, I don't understand about the light blur on it. Is it a real rendered foggy mood or a voluntary effect with your lens for an artistic presentation? At the first sight, I believed that a little more sharpness or more neutral colors could give a more clear look at the FG. Also, the buildings in BG are distorted, surely cause of the wide angle. Why didn't you correct it with PS for a better looking at this beautiful view?
Best regard! Annie

Hi BK,
