Couldn't stand sitting around the house today, so went out on a photo shoot at a local park.

It draws the observer thanks to the strong perspective emphasized also by the low angle point of view, almost that of a warm!! I think some cropping from the top couldevenstimulate the effect.Well done!

Thanks for the comments all,

You're correct, I should have cropped some of the sky out. I know better than to center a subject as in that shot.:angry:

A wonderful shot. What an eye you have for an image!

If I were playing with it, I'd...

(a) crop off the spurious strip of wooden post from the left-hand edge;

(b) Move the larger puff of cloud rightwards so that the bridge led the eye towards it;

(c) remove the smaller puff of cloud altogether.

Just cloning out the clouds completely would leave another perfect picture.

Thanks for the suggestions, I didn't notice the the wooden post in the left-hand edge of the picture. It definitely needs to be cropped out along with some of the sky. Understand what you are saying about the clouds but not sure if that is something I would remove. Will play with this picture and a couple of others on my day off this week.

Beautiful! Nice crop, and the single puff of cloud is perfectly placed. I especially like the tiny bits peeping up over thewalkway on the horizon. It makes you want to go & look over it.
