    Alley - gritty feel to it! Many contrasts. Very good.
    But there's too much street in the foreground, to my mind - it feels like such an amount of dead space is not really needed here. It adds nothing, and it is too bright. So a crop to square might help ... would you consider that?

    I agree with Corinna, great shot with a distinctly urban feel, but a bit too much blank space in it.

    i have to say i disagree. I'v just tried scrolling it down to chop the bottom off and it didn't improve the shot at all in my opinion. I like the way the dark alley draws you further in, and it would be a shame to loose that effect. :thumbup:

    i agree with archangel.
    the empty space gives a nice open feeling and balances the picture. Also gotta love the little softness :thumbsup:
    a great shot, darin.
