    I took this picture a couple hours outside Shanghai a few days ago. Tell me what you think. I used a Rebel XS kit and it's my first posted shot ever. Thanks!

    The idea is good, but must be a perfect image to be good... looks too dark to me... exposition is all in images like that.

    People here don't like following links and generally won't click them. If you want C&C post your picture in here. GL

    Here you go. Right click the image and copy the image location then paste it between for next time.

    As for the image. The pots and the floor are very dark which is unfortunate because there appears to be a lot of texture there that would be be quite dramatic if it stood out more, imo. I like the composition of it.

    Edit: Removed image

    Kudos for trying to help GFreg, but you're in violation of at least one TPF rule/reg because you're not the copyright owner of the image. The Photo Forum - Photography Discussion Forum - FAQ

    If an image isn't yours, leave it alone.

    For the OP: http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/...forum-functions-pictoral-guide-using-tpf.html

    A reflector, or a speedlight set at low power would have made the pots 'pop'. As it is they're kind of lost in the shadows.

    Having more of the the wall on the right in the frame with the corner 1/3 of the way into the frame from the right would have been more effective at leading the viewers eye down to the right most pot.

    With added light the Pots could have been given more of the visual weight they deserve being the main subject of the image.

    By the way, do you think the LHC will be able to produce a few?

    I have a photographer friend (physicist) who works there, CERN that is.

    Keith, I had no idea how you brought LHC and CERN into this for a moment. I hadn't paid any attention to the OP's screen name :D

    My same thought originally but then I made my edit stating it wasn't mine after I thought about the fact that it wasn't my edit. Anyway, pic is down now.
