OK, lets see if I can get this right.

Please be critical of this photo. I really want to know

if it's good or just a pretty picture.

Thanks

Casey

I don't see any point in being nasty for the sake of it, but I'm not sure it's even a pretty picture.

There's too much context for it to work as an abstract, but not enough for it to be a landscape. There's no point of interest either and little to hold the eye.

It seems to be nicely exposed and sharp enough - but I'm afraid that's all I can find to recommend it, the problem is the composition. Don't be disheartened though; you clearly have some skill with the camera, just keep on trying.

i am going to have to agree.. not enough to be abstract and no focal point..

Honest isn't nasty. Thanks for the critique. I'll try again.

you may try shooting through the trestles and converting to get more of an artistic play on the form and texture of the wood..
