    I took this shot a while back and thought I could get some opinions/suggestions. This was out at our lake house on a pretty good day. I thought the bench had a real lonely feel to it. (More so in the last one)

    Shot with my Canon EOS Elan 7ne
    400 Film
    Can't remember any of the specs.

    I like this one the best, but I would like opinions on the original (http://www.deviantart.com/view/19199310/)

    The colours are rich and you have really shown the ageing in the bench. The crop works well, some might say you should have included the whole bench - i nearly did but on second thought it's perfect the way it is.

    I feel like it's cropped way too tightly. There's nothing that really stands out as the subject. I like the monochrome version on dA, but I wish it wasn't cropped so tightly.

    Thanks. I would post an un-cropped version, but there isn't such a thing. :mrgreen: ThatÂ’s the original picture. I like to get in close to things to give them different perspective.

    Well, I am with spiralout here and say: I do miss the back of the bench and a bit of surroundings to really show the "lonely" feeling that you were going for in this photo. Tightly cropped as it is, you might as well have photographed a bench in a busy surroundings, only suggesting it looked lonely.

    Detail and mostly so colours are just great! The texture of the wood stands out. That is really good.
