I have no idea if this will be excepted. I took it earlier this year when I went to Williamsburg. It's the old capital. I was going to take the tour but the waiting line was so long!

Nice job.....I think the composition would have looked more complete if you had taken a couple steps back so the wall at the bottom and flags at the top could have been included.



Looked like a beautiful day! My husband used to be a chef at The Williamsburg Inn when we were first married...so this is an "old stomping ground" for me.

Actually, I did have the wall. But there were some people in front so I cropped them out. I have been to Williamsburg twice. It was a beautiful day, and it was warm for it to have been Feburary.



Here is the uncropped picture. :|

Hi, Novice. The second shot is much better since it shows the complete building and surroundings. The people in the shot actually help the shot by giving scale to the scene. Very well done.

Thanks Cal,

I didn't even think about the people helping to show the size.

Nice shot NP,

I have to agree the second one is better, and the folks walking around really show the scale.

I saw your post of this in the people forum also, That guy with the dog likes to be in you shots:G:G:G

So, i'll have to remember that people in photos are okay some times. :-)

Mugmar, the guy in the second picture here isn't the same one. But the dog is the same breed. That day, there were dogs EVERYWHERE. Almost more dogs than people. :lol:

Thanks for looking and commenting everyone! I really appreciate it!
