    I was travelling through the Smokey Mountains a couple of weeks ago and found this old grinding mill. The lighting was not great that day, however I am interested in all comments regarding this photo. It has been a while since I have posted here, but please feel free to be brutal.

    I like the photo a lot, good use of lines and composition. It works well and the contrast between the building and greenery. Good work

    Thanks for the comment, it is appreciated. There is something about this picture that just bugs me and I am not sure what it is. Perhaps I am being too critical.

    I like the composition and colors. The one thing that does stand out to me is that it doesn't appear to be sharp enough for my liking. Hitting it with unsharp mask in photoshop may be enough to make all of the difference, but I'm also wondering if the focus may be just a little soft on it. Tough for me to tell on this monitor.

    A little boost of contrast and saturation may help to make it "pop" a bit more as well. I think its really close to being a very nice shot.
