    Personally I like it a lot. But some other things I like weren't view as greatly as I had viewed them, so I'd like opinions please! :D

    It seems the grain wasn't noticable in this one, either, with makes me very happy.

    I'm really sorry, but this doesn't do anything for me. It's just a broom on a slightly interesting surface. Don't like the shadow either.
    You've posted some really nice pics here; this isn't one of them (IMHO).

    Maybe add some dirt to be swept up and it might make this more interesting. Not bad though.

    My first thought of the pic was if the broom is tilted to the left it would imply that it's moving the left in which case it would work better to have it on the right 1/3 line. Haha Rule Of 3rd's for ya! I agree with the others though... the pic alone I don't think works but you could add some elements to it to improve it. Someone mentioned a cat... that might make it more interesting.

    Okay just to be contrary why would you leave so much empty space on the right. I know everyone has heard me say this a million times but if you want use a horiontal format there should be someting in it.

    Heh, I thought it looked neat cause of the texture of the ground.

    I like the horiz version but didn't see it before I did this. I probably pushed it farther than it needs to go, but anyway........

    if you would ask me, I'd say your original is the best. it has just the right mood and composition is right on spot. Always keep some things in mind like for example "symmetry is beauty for fools" - Paul Cezanne.

    And a picture that has no balance appears to be falling off the wall from its own weight. But thats what makes horse races. Some people bet on the bob tailed nag and some bet on the bay.

    I think it would look coo shot from a lower position so you could show the texture of the floor and the bristles of the broom. I think that would look really cool.
