I saw some of the others posting photos from GCP. I follow suit! And this time, there’s real commentary!
That’s the slideshow for the whole set on Flickr. I’ll just be posting the ones I like better here.
Sony Cyber-Shot W110
5 and 7 megapixels
Automatic mode, with macro control (sadly, this camera comes with no manual controls at all in all the modes, save for an exposure compensation one in Program mode)
Flash always off
It’s a flower. It’s an exceedingly plain shot, actually, and the flower isn’t that pretty either. I was mainly trying to see if the rule of thirds really works or not (the flower is in the top-right third). I guess not.
I found the light very interesting – it was a crisp, clear day and that lovely winter sunlight was everywhere. I also like the concentric circles. The composition is a bit boring though – I guess tighter cropping or shifting the subject matter off-centre would have helped.
It’s a sunset! At about 4 or 5 pm. This was taken at the Old Summer Palace (or what remains of it, anyway…) and I thought the silhouetted ruins provided a nice dose of nostalgia (wrong word, but I can’t think of a better one at the moment) to top off the day.
This could have been a much better photo. I’m quite happy with the expressions of mother and child (?) but there are random shoulders at the sides, which takes the focus away from them. Didn’t have time to wait for a better shot because we were already running for the bus.
It’s the light again. That lovely sunlight! I wish we had more of that in Singapore.
This is some sort of ancient astrological instrument, if I remember correctly. Don’t really like the background,d though I thought the bit with the sun turned out quite nicely.
