This my first post at Steve's, therefore it is my first attempt at showing a file. I am not asking for C&C but any would be welcomed. This post is for the learning experience. The photo is of downtown Ft Worth, TX USA taken at sunrise.

PGM.....
I tried this type of shot on a vacation trip to Sedona AZ...I caught the setting sun behind the peak of a mountain...I thought it was very interesting because I had slight sunrays showing in the shot...I got mixed comments on the shot...My biggest critic, the wife, didn't care for it, so I filed it in the "o well" file...Anyway...Your shot, IMO, would be one of the "o well" file photos, except for the 2 windows in the building on the left...Some how those make the shot interesting...You might want to play with cropping the picture some how to reduce the effect of the sun...To me its just to bright and dominates the photo...Just my opinon remember....

Thanks John and musket, I appreciate your comments. I have printed this photo at several sizes and it does present quite well regarding the sun. As for the black on black, here, the photo does not present well at all. I do not care for frames but a simple line frame here would help the presentation to define the lower limit.

Please see this link for a better representation.

I'm not sure that the shot would be a yawn without the two windows, but my eye was drawn to them right away, too. They seem to imply a story -- a couple of competitors working all night, perhaps? They make you want to know why those lights are on at this early time of day -- there's a story there, and the photo poses the question, what is it? They certainly add a special dimension to the photo.
