A whole new world by gnohz A whole new world by gnohz
One of my most recent works of Singapore. Taken high up at a residential district.

I remember leaning out so far that almost half of my body was dangling dangerously out of the window. My hands were shaking with excitement and I was holding my camera so hard for fear that it might slip off.

The risks we take to get nice images…

Critique by Sonamy365 Feb 10, 2012, 8:07:57 PM
This is my second or third critique, so i might not do very wel, but here goes nothing.
Wow. Just, wow. When I first saw this, I felt very happy inside. This photo is quite something. I really think that no one, not even if someone tries their hardest, can ever take a photo as beautiful as this. I admit, it looks a little dark at the bottom, but that's alright. I love the angle the buildings have, compared to the rainbow stretching over them.

I really do love his peice. I hope that others will enjoy this photo as much as I do.

The top rainbow is kind of faded and even thought that's not your fault, it takes away from the overall effect. Under the first rainbow the sky looks REALLY cool! Another aspect that's not your fault, the buildings just don't fit somehow. The rainbows and sky give off this misty heaven-like feeling and then, buildings, just buildings. However, the trees add to that heaven feeling, and so does the faded sky. Where did you take this form anyways? It feels like you went to the top of a building but I don't really know. I think anyone would take a picture if they saw a double rainbow so that kind of thrashes on the originality points, BUT, I do like the title "The Whole World". That's about it but I'll keep typing to readch my 100 words. Overall, I think it looks pretty good. word, word, word, word, OK, I'm good!

Absolutely beautiful and well worth the risk. I once climbed up a tree on the side of a mountain with a 500 foot drop below me just to shoot a small waterfall in Alaska.

Hi Robert! :wave:
Sounds like you had your share of adventures too :D I'm afraid of heights actually so it's scary to imagine your story too.... :faint:

I went to Alaska too and love it! Where did you shoot that waterfall? :)

Spencer Glacier near Portage Alaska. My Army unit trained there every year that I was there. To my understanding the army doesn't use it any more and now there are tours of the glacier.
