its an interesting shot! the books on the left hand side look like they are glowing. it almost looks like an old newspaper photo.
overprocessed. i hate how you can see past the bridge/walkway thing on the left, but is cutoff on the right. it should be more balanced. dead space on the top.
That staircase looks familiar... You shot this before, but I think last time you shot it symmetrically. I find the antisymmetry here curious. Looks like you're trying to do something, but you're not pushing it enough.
No comment on the processing.
Good canditate for a square crop.
I always thought squares were a big no no
Square crops come with there own "rules" for composition, and are a little harder to pull off well.
There's no such thing as an absolute no no in photography. Sometimes, things that shouldn't work, do work. And things that should work, don't. Don't be afraid to experiment with different things. You might be surprised.
I think its cool composition, I just ain't feeling the post processing you did. Little heavy IMO. I think it would also be a cool shot from a very low angle.
I for one love the PP. It might not be the "normal" thing to do but Vangogh didn't do the "normal" thing either. The shot itself isn't pleasing to me but keep doing your own thing!
i like it overall..pp a bit much
i like the use of lines here..could use a little more balance.
