    As far as subject matter goes there isn't much to keep me lookin at the photo. Also the light seems overpowering and blown out a bit. I'd also clone out whatever is in the bottom left hand corner of the pic as well. If you can try and reshoot and get more of the building and use that for subject matter rather than the light :) The building looks to be pretty unique!

    Hello Killed,

    I love the Sepia tone in this image.

    However, I would like to see a slight tilt towards the right. While composing an image it would be nice to make sure at least one of the strong lines in the image is parallel to one of the borders.

    You mean like the horizontal bar of the light being parallel to the top and bottom borders? :wink:

    No, I meant the yellow line. The pink line (aka the lamp stand) is parallel to the top and bottom border as you said, but for me, it is not the "prominent/strong line" in this image.
    Cheers! :)

    LOL, I thought I'd play devils advocate a bit. It would seem wierd to me to have the lamp post floating off at some odd angle.

    I think it may be a positional issue, more than an angle?

    And no formal education at all here either, well for photography anyway.
