    I took this shot and can't tell whether or not it is interesting or just boring and uninspired. Will someone with some experience/insight/opinion give me their thoughts on this. What makes it good. bad, etc.

    I'd really like to get some takes on this.

    Well I'm certainly new at this... but at least the subject is clear, and the diagonal is much better than straight on. Not sure why the L is cut off....and looking again I find the letters facing the other direction in the back a little distracting.

    Thanks for the input. The "L" ran right into the shingling of the roof (which you can see in the bottom corner) and if I left it in, it would have looked like crap. I didn't know if it had some linear/geometric quality to it or whether it was a jumbled mess.

    What were you going for here? Do you like it?

    It doesn't do anything for me personally. Try re-taking the shot at night when the neon lights are on. It might look kinda cool.

    Or shoot the whole building? Maybe a wide-angle vertical shot from the bottom looking up. Hard to know without seeing it...
