here's a very busy shot.

good elements, but too many of them in one shot, i think.

what's your take?

yes, it is very busy. Cool looking though. Perhaps if you tone down the reflection so we get just a hint, that would clean it up.

I dont think that bright pink is doing it any favors. This may be the resize or my monitor at work but the subject lacks detail (cant make out the steps)

Also, Im not a fan of the fact you chose to color something that is obscured by another subject, thats just my taste though.

Looks like a fun place to shoot. I bet you have plenty of other shots

Yeah I guess so. BUT! This is really interesting! Hummm. This is a picture that had to be taken....

I like your thinking... 'To busy ! I'll point to whatI want them to look at'

Could you have gone to the left and shot more angle into it. I don't know.

You might as well show us the color and B&W versions.

It's busy but it kind of sucks you in.

PS: You have done well grasshopper.

ugh... i really don't like the selective coloring here..

i think this could work in color.. while it may be busy, i think it could be busy in a good way.. i'd like to at least see the color version..

i'd like to see the original version too. there is a lot going on but i don't think that's necessarily(sp?) bad. i don't care for the selective coloring though.

i like it, i think something can be done here to make it work well. maybe a little crop from the bottom for balance....someone more technically minded may have more appropriate suggestions....

Yes.... There's just something about it... It could be us folks out this way never see
this kind of garden.

I guess it depends on how many MP your working with here. If you've enough
you can hack at it some. But if you're starting on the low..."Shoulda-Woulda-Coulda"
No other shots of this area?
