    LOVE love LOVE the shot. However, the sink being cut off at the bottom is distracting me. Is this a cropped version that you can redo?

    Aside from that, I love all the lines leading to the sink and your composition is great.

    Looking at it again, it's not even that big of a deal. In fact, I tried to imagine it not cut-off and it might just be better like this.

    Even if it isn't perfect, I'm sure someone with a more trained eye than mine will point out something, I think it shows real potential for you. There are so many leading lines that the train in the background doesn't even distract me. I think this is an awesome image and you should give yourself a big hug for me. :hug::

    Excuse the enthusiasm, I'm pulling an all-nighter with Photoshop.

    Nice shot.
    I don't think cutting off the sink was a big deal. I would like to see more of the window frame. I CRAVE IT. ;) Perhaps panning the camera to the left a wee bit.

    Nice shot. Try crouching diwn just a little to get a better view out of the window. Also, try leveling the shot more. seems slightly off kilter.

    I think the shot looks good, just me but I think if you were to lower the camera a little it'll really make it pop.

    The shot itself is great. Although it doesn't do much for me, I also think it's a misconception beginners have about "cutting off part of an image" It all depends on the photo, the subject :) Welcome to the forum!
