    I'd crop out the corner of the wall on the left.

    Also in Lincoln?

    i like but the wall on the left is distracting. i agree... cropping would be perfect.

    I like this ... very mysterious! Where do those stairs go? It looks like it's in the middle of the woods! Cool!

    nice. could use some sharpening though. and a little less light on the left side of the picture. just my opinion.

    Nice shot :thumbup:

    Couple of things imvho:
    - I think it's a touch slanted, could do with 1 or 2 degrees anti-clockwise rotation.
    - Boost the contrast a touch to bring out the detail.
    - Try to darken the white area on the left hand side, bit distracting and spoils the photo imo.

    Nicely composed though and lots of potential. :thumbup:

    If you crop out that wall it might change the perspective. and you would lose part the tree off to the side which I like. Maybe do a blend to disguise it rather than cropping it. I like the balance and a crop may alter it.

    The contrast was boosted a bit, but as far as darkening the lighter side, it was overexposed in that area so the range stayed in the white no matter what. Sorry.

    Same for me, first thing I noticed was the slant in the photo.
