    Was meeting up with a friend for a few mins this am when out of the corner of my eye I noticed this photo op. It was just starting to downpour when I quickly fired this shot off and headed for cover. Feel free to C&C

    Nice texture and color contrast, but overall I find the shot kind of boring. Maybe a different angle or some better lighting would help out.

    Or you might get back there in the sun and have the curled up paint bits throw shadows? Could that be nice?

    I was thinking of having less in the image as sometimes, less is more.
    Ii love the colours, but maybe try having more of the section with the peeling paint / rust in the image and less of the rest.

    Although this can probably be done easily in photoshop

    I like it... I like the idea of a different angle, and also going back and taking a photo w/ the sun shining on the curled up pieces. TMO

    I like it, don't find it boring at all. If you reshoot it, try zooming in and filling the frame more with the bigger cracks and chips, might make it a bit more interesting.

    Would make a cool grafix background with some color variations.

    it seems like the outsides of the shot is a lot softer than the middle.. i would say that it should all be sharp, perhaps close the f/stop a bit (im no expert though..)

    Black and white would make it more interesting.
