    Seems a little underexposed and washed out, but otherwise a nice pic.

    Honestly, I think it's kind of an uninteresting subject and the framing isn't that interesting. I think with some more interesting angles that you could bring out some of the more interesting details... but I think the way it is, it just doesn't quite work.

    BTW, it's also kind of weird in that it isn't centered, but it's not really framed in a way that works off-center either. I think if you did some aggressive cropping that would help.

    A better exposure, but I agree about the composition. It is kinda flat. Try moving in and out and giving it some depth.

    Thanks again for the feedback. I'll see what I can do to get better angles w/o getting run over.

    Interesting image - I wonder about this crop & correction?

    Chris, that looks better...what edits did you do? I'm still trying to figure out digital editing, etc.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Dan, I think the cropping on the 1/3rd is the most important one as it leads the eye into the image - then I used Lab to curve, but just doing AutoLevels + Brightness/Contrast + Hue/Saturation would get you there.
    If you have Photoshop, then I have some actions on my web site that may help
    All the best

    Yes indeed Dan - I particularly like the first one - composition and tonal adjustments are spot on
    Well done
