    I'd like to hear what people think of this shot. Don't hold back, I'm not fragile. Technical, artistic... any comments welcome and very appreciated.

    It's the fence-pole-light-thing. Right there? Don't you see it? Man my eyes must be going BAD. :lol:

    I'm obviously just joking. I like pictures of random spots of stuff... for some reason the leaves and the post and the light grabbed my attention and seemed neat.

    Is there another way I could have framed the same subject and gotten a shot that would appeal more? Or is it just a useless subject and I should resign myself to admitting that I have deep deep issues and need therapy? :)

    my tips would be to 1) put the post straight 2) put more of the wood in the shot (so less leaves) and 3) convert it to b&w
    oh and lose the watermark

    Ok, well I can play with a couple of those now. The raw subject is about 3000 miles away from me so I won't be able to re-cap to get more fence, but I'll play with the B&W and straightening to see what it looks like.

    Don't get what?

    Is the view pretty good from the cheap seats, Mr. 19 posts? :lol: Too funny.

    I never actually said this before, but just for anyone following... I'm not like over-attached to this photo or anything. It was just one of those things... I kinda noticed it walking through the zoo and it seemed kinda neat to me, so I snapped it. Later on, I felt about equally as interested... not stunning, but I kinda liked it.

    So, out of curiosity I posted it here to see what people felt about it... how it was good/bad/could be made better/etc.

    Just sort of an interesting excercise. I appreciate everyone who has been following along and giving some constructive thoughts. In truth, I don't think there's any real way to salvage it as a good shot... it really isn't all that interesting... but fun to play with and see what I can do, regardless.
