Very pretty spring image, but I don't quite see the subjects falling in the "thirds" grid.
This is a very pretty, soothing image, but I also have to agree that it is not very spring-like.
I was also going to say to bring up the colors outside, but this gives an interesting "old" look. Tough one to comment on, can't quite put my finger on how to improve. Maybe too much, or too little dark wall around the window.
I think it would look prettier if you increase the saturation and bring out the red in the plant and blue of the sky.
Has a nostalgic look to it, very interesting image.
Very nice shot, I can't really see a way to improve the composition.
I also like the angle, but both your title and description talks about the statue which is the OOF part in the background. I think it would be dramatic to see the statue from this angle, in focus, with the blurry pink flowers at it's feet.
A very different look and I also like the leaves balancing the overall shot. The support stick in the middle still distracts me a bit.
I also agree that there is too much going on here. I would try cropping horizontal across the sky just below the dark pole at the upper left, and maybe crop to just left of the standing person. Maybe make the main track convergence point the 1/3 point.
The tree being right in the center bothers me a bit, also the strange halo around it and the branches in the upper right. The foreground rocks seem a bit too bright and vivid compared to the rest of the image.
Very nice shot, I like it a lot. The green leaf at the lower right does not bother me at all, but the tan colored stick in the center distracts me.
Yes, very cool shot, but can you post the rules you followed?
I think the previous post nailed it right on. It is a gorgeous shot, but too many things are sharp and too evenly lit. The large rock in the front is distracting to me, maybe darken it at bit? The blue waterfall is the focus here.
I like the shot very much, although I'm not sure either if it is following the 1/3 rule. The blurred background does not bother me at all, brings your eyes immediately to the two subjects up front. I do with the couple was bit sharper and colors more vivid. Also, maybe crop out the gray vertical wall along the left edge?
Gorgeous shot!!! And I would also crop out about two sections of the orange thing to the right. I like the shot very much.
It's a very nice shot, although I'm having trouble finding a focal point of the image, seems a bit unorganized. How about cropping out the strong vertical window frame to the right?
Like CG33 said, the photo is well balanced and very interesting. I actually like the tower to the left, as if the road points to it.
Beautiful shot. Hard to improve, but perhaps crop out bit more of the empty space to the right, placing end of pier closer to the "1/3" position.
Lovely image, I'd leave it alone!
