Great kclai 2006-09-14 2:32

Hi Andre
Glas to see another shutterbug from penang Island, joining TE.
Welcome abroad.
Well, it seem that you have put your camera to the limit by producing such exquisite imgae, that reflects the atmospheric feeling.
This is pretty a good image, but not truely cool enough. The lack of peoples, except the silhouttes of the two monks, have "vanished" the true atmospheric feeling of the ceremony.
The fire itself, together with the burning prye is one interesting elements.
The too near focusing, which resulted a tighter cropping have also contributed the lost of composition.
Get everything into your picture. Get it to the PC. Learn the composition and then work on the cropping. his might give you a better image, Andre.
Well done.
Cheers and good day.

Default To kclai: lack of people

Hello Eric

Thanks very much for your critique and welcome. I have to say if there were more people there it would certainly give a truer atmospheric feeling to the ceremony. There was a huge crowd eariler when there was light but everyone seems to have left when it got dark.

Thanks also for your tip on "getting everything into the picture" and then getting it to the PC Will keep that in mind.
