A variation of a previous posting, this one taken before the imminent storm that later followed.

This is a fabulous shot of a beautiful building, punchy colours, saturated sky, setting of the gold trim of the building a first class shot and a joy to view.

Hi

This is nothing more than a snapshot for me and not really deserving of a HC. That might seem a little bit harsh but I when I was browsing the HC gallery and saw this I was a bit concerned.

Some of the faults include the fact that the framing is actually a little bit tight for an architectural image of this nature. The saturation levels etc are fine but the light is very harsh and theres some obviosu distortion which hasn't been corrected.

It's a fabulous building and I certainly would have liked to see this in softer light with a bit more space left around it. Did you manage to get any additional shots of that nature from here?

Dan

If the premise on this site was for 100% perfection no one would receive an award of any variety myself included. I'm sure many shots would benefit from slightly better lighting and angle etc but as we all know sometimes time and place does not permit such luxuries. Now I am totally unaware of the circumstances of this shot other than a storm was brewing so I do not assume the photographer would be settling in for the day to catch that elusive PERFECT shot. As it stands I judged it on my gut instinct first, "its and outstanding piece of architecture displaying some fine detail and beautiful caught in the moment so to speak. At this scale It is a bit harsh to denounce a little distortion and with so many stepped angles to contend with is all but pointless to condemn. Tight crop again perhaps there was distracting buildings etc which would have in due course have us questing "why was it not cropped tighter" its a no win situation, so as it stands we are all due the good and the bad critic on this site as that is why we all upload, but in this occasion I stand by decision and Roger is well deserving of the award as I see it here a fine example of what I would be glad to hang on my wall or see published in a travel magazine in every respect, both visually exiting and technically well beyond the advarage snapshot!!

I agree with Dan, sorry Victor.

If we have to assume all situation or find excuses (they might not have time to wait for good light, there might be other buildings around etc etc) for the photographer for not getting a better shot, then every single shot in EPZ would get a HC or PA.

No offence intended Victor, however to I'm afraid this isn't even anywhere near a high standard. I really don't want to get into attacking Rogers image as my post was meant to be mainly critique orientated. Suggesting ways in which the shot could be improved rather than having a dig at the person who made the award.

That said I appreciate you coming back with some passion over your choice. At least you are bothered and involved which is the main thing for me.

Like you I totally stand by my statment that this image isn't up to par and having had a flick through the HC gallery I can see that at least 50% of the choices so far aren't either ....

Sorry

No problem Dan your are likely at bit like myself I hate the grey area I either love a shot for my own reasons or not if we all liked the same it would make for a pretty dull site. I'm coming to Rogers defense like a blind man and perhaps he would agree with your very own comment but I have been privileged to make it MY choice and that i have.
Thanks guys for the feedback appreciate you taking the time as well.
have a good one over the next few weeks

For my part, I am only too pleased that if nothing else, this image has provoked comment and attention and that is good enough for me.

And I can assure Dan also, that there is much distortion that has been corrected!!!

How good to see some constructive criticism of a shot. It makes a change from the "Oh, fab!" rwemarks which seem so prevalent. I
i think it would make a good postcard. Come to think of it, they sell postcards almost identical outside the Grand Palace in Bangkok!
