Default Folded Pipes On The Asphalt

Today I noticed these folded pipes on the asphalt in a big parking.

I've left the colors in the shot, as well as the garbages on the asphalt.

Any feedback ?

Any idea on how to make it even better ?



:arrow: Revisited Version according to Klaus suggestions :



P.S.:
- cropping
- manual level correction
- contrast

I like the shot. This is what I would do different.

1. Add more sharpness. Areas like sand, stone, concrete a.s.o can take a lot of sharpness compared to i.e. the metal in the shot.

2. Crop even more to have a more wide look.

3. Darken the overall shot, but brighten the dark square on the ground. More contrast.

4. Clone away the green leaf to get a more clean shot. I don't think the leaf is good as a symbol against some broken pipes. But this could be a matter of taste.

5. Remove the white frame and add a black. The white color seems to stand too much alone.

Looking at the shot - I wonder what this actually is ? If you haven't told it, well. Maybe add some philosophic title or theme in the lower part of the shot.

Maybe the shot would have been better shot from a lower stand, with a car in the background ?!?!

Basically a good shot though.

I would put up a sign, maybe with a flashing light, warning drivers to watch out for planted pipes in the ground...oh, you want help with the picture...my bad.

Intereresting photo, brtsergio

I agree, black border sounds good!

I am curious...was this a bicycle rack that had met its demise?

Thanx for your suggestions, Klaus.

Digicamfan, I really don't know what it was for !

I've found it in the Football San Siro Stadium Parking in Milan.
It was standing alone : rather a strange thing for it to be a bicycle rake in that place.



Any idea ?

P.S. : I'll dedicate a serie to the architecture of this Stadium.

Klaus, I've put the revisited version with your suggestions below the original one.

Yes, better now, thanx. (Maybe the new crop and the black frame are not the ones of my taste ).

I removed all of the garbage.

Just one thing : it was not a leaf , it was a piece of glass from a broken bier Bottle, hence symbolic in a certain way.

So, it would have fit according to my taste but i erased it cause ... there is no point in leaving something in a shot if it is too small and only the photographer knows what it is !

Brtsergio, I know my original post was a bit sarcastic; I was just having a little fun as this “frame” was obviously mangled. I would like to say I think the shot of the stadium with the vignette highlighting the mangled frame is mush more impressive to me. It would be neat if you could make the vignette a hot link that when clicked upon then the second close up photo appears. Or somehow incorporate the two photos together, I just can’t imagine you hanging the “close up” on the wall all by itself. I like your clean-up job but think the white frame offered better contrast. Have a good day.

very good second edit! I think you got the tubes to look somehow 3-D like! I like that.
