Something I Never Attempt

Sunrise or sunset?

I don't blame you if you can't tell if it is sunrise or sunset, the picture itself is quite deceptive (due to my helluva lousy Motorola V3XX attached camera).

Darn... I really need a bloody 12.2MPs camera with those sophisticated features! Saving money for it now...

We can determine whether somebody is optimistic or pessimistic.

Sunrise = optimistic
Sunset = pessimistic.

Nice shot... Keep it up!

In my humble opinion, I think it is not logical and quite unscientific to say so...

Nice shot huh? It's quite deceptive seriously. Every pic I take of sky, it looks cloudy... =.=||

If it were to be sunset, the sky around it will be orange too not light blue :)

I am not very sure of the test.. But that was told by my physics lecturer and some of my friends heard about it before too.. So i think it is quite true..

I heard of it too.... According to them, choosing sunrise is optimistic because dawn brings new hope, which means he/she always lives with hope....

To be honest, the shot is bad :(

Several factor, camera itself is one of it. Subject is not in the center with fence obstructing it. Last is the wyre.

Again, 12.2 megapixel doesn't mean the quality is good or better. A camera is good or bad depends on the brand. Why brand? Because each brand/manufacturer has their own firmware to compress their picture and each manufacturer has their identified signature of compressing pictures. Compressing will determine the colour reproduction, algorithm, saturation, exposure value, default brightness etc... Thats not only, the camera sensor is also important where we will see whether a 12.2megapixel is a genuine one or interpolated by looking at the size of the CCD :)

Anyway I know this angle is not right.. Simply took it while waiting for my friends to go UTAR....I will view more pictures by professional photographers and improve on my skill =P
