I'n not quite sure about the composition of this one. I feel it could do with a splash of contrasting colour somewhere, but I guess I can't have everything.

Regards,

Syd

Like Terry said, this is your calling Syd. Love the blue tone. My favourite colour. This one is sharp and of an artistic interest. Regards. Jaki

Hey Syd,

I am really liking your recent fascination with buildings... they do produce some great colours and shapes. I love the lens flare on this one - natural or PS? I do like it. Also like the composition, the curves, it is just a cool shot!

Nice one.

Dom

Thank's JaKi

Thank's Dom.

I must admit I really wasn't sure whether the composition was off or not, also this other rule~ aspect ratio thingy. The lens flare was put there with PS 7. Sometimes lens flare works and sometimes it doesn't. I thought it added a certain je ne se qua.

I see you're an Gunners supporter Dom. What's their stadium like? What colour/s is it? Would it be worth a trip with the camera? I might take a visit to Majesky Stadium here in Reading with the cam' as it's all done out in real trippy blues and white.

Regards,

Syd

Yeah for what its worth! Terrible season for the gooners.... however it is the last season at Highbury so it would be worth a trip - there is a new stadium sponsored by Emirates cunningly named "The Emirates Stadium" - or Ashburton Grove which we will be starting to use in August.

Are you a footy fan?

Beatufiul colours and the flare works well! adds a crtain flair to the image sorry...



Only thing I would do is straighten the "horizon" slightly, the building on the left seems leaning to the right? so maybe a couple of degrees of counter clockwise.

Maybe post both, it just kind of grabbed my attention a bit away from the image.

Thanks for pointing out the tilt dude. Here's the straightened version.
