    a little overboard on the sharpening i think, but otherwise okay?

    critiques welcome!

    It's got a very creepy feel about it, i dont think it is too over sharpened, i think that adds to the effect. nice photo

    Hmm, I think it is dead, isn't it?






    sorry for this highly qualified comment ;)


    I think the sharpening has stretched the limits, but not crossed any limits if you see what I mean. I like the colours, and like the crop.

    one could have given a bit more empty space in the lower part of the image, as now it is a half / half, otherwise it could be a third/third/third

    but maybe that would not work with so much empty space... maybe something in between.

    I agree kevyn...I think the sharpness really works with this image.

    Nice job!

    thanks guys. but kevin i disagree . . .

    so many people subscribe to the rule of thirds so often it gets stale, its not an end all rule to photographic composition. and it felt good to emphasise natural symmetry with photographic symmetry.

    Let's see it in B&W. I think it would look good.
