    guys,

    I took this midday at Mount Hope Cementary. I wanted the cross to be brighter. I used my flash to bring it to light more but it doesnt seem to be enough, any ideas?

    A bit too busy and washed out for me ... I appreciate what you were trying to do but the lens flare is just too strong.

    As well compositionally the tree which seems to be extending out of the cross is just distracting. A different angle may have helped.

    good effort though :thumbup:

    Probably a re-shoot at a different time of the day; when sunlight hits the cross?

    Why not take it without the strong light and add it wherever you want in Photoshop.

    the cross is not level, and the lines (shape) of the cross gets lost with the trees. Find a cross in more of an open space. Close the shutter down a littlebit. When your looking in the viewfinder, or lcd screen THINK ABOUT GEOMETRY, vertical-verticals...
