    hey all,

    took this pic when I visited Prague in march... I really like it, as the eye has something to follow... I think that's good?! I dont know! Although the colour is dull (stupid rainy weather!) - how could it be made better?
    Maybe using photoshop to enhance it or something??

    Anyway - have a good weekend everyone! :)

    I really like it.

    The dull color, combined with the empty path really creates a mood for me. Also like the composition, which draws my eyes down the steps and leads me to looking over the rooftops of the city.

    Well done! As far as improvements go, I really can't think of anything I would change.

    At first I was going to point out the crooked horizon as a flaw...but the more I look at it. It seem to fit. The stairs are not uniform, some of the buildings seem to be leaning. It all fits together nicely.

    Our friend mfacer was standing at a point where the earth curves. Dont you know that our earth is soo big :). So the 'tilt' that you see is just a part of the curve :)

    And as a matter of fact, the tilt/curve looks really beautiful in this picture.

    Like they said, it's a nice moody picture just like it is. Here it is with horizon straight and a little other PS work. If you want to do something like that let me know.

    I like the color changes drdan.

    But I would prefer the same color changes with the 'tilted' horizon. The tilt has the top-of-the-world feel to it.

    Just my opinion though!

    How strange, with the horizon straightened, the rest of the photo feels like its leaning to the left to me. Maybe I'm just off balance ;)

    hey,

    thanks for the replies! All very good comments!

    I never noticed that the horizon was slanted! - but as chase mentioned, with it straightened, the steps now look as if they lean to the left!

    drdan - the colours look much better. What did you do? I've got Photoshop, but have never got in to it - I always have used Paint Shop Pro...

    just about to post anothe pic which I need some help with!! (in a new thread) :roll:
