    It's a good idea to include the shot info when asking for C&C.

    Camera: Canon XT
    Shutter Speed: 1/60
    Aperture: f/5.6
    ISO: 100
    Focal Length: 55mm

    Image is a little dark and seems soft.

    So, what do you really like about it? What are you trying to show us with this image. What inspired you?

    I liked the window mainly as the focal point but didn't want to center it so decided to add the column.. For instance here is the original. Sorry forgot to add the camera info before.

    I'm guessing I really should invest in a better lens?

    i'm not sure the info on the shot would make me like the shot more or less. altho i do think its useful for us (me certainly) noobs to proactively think about the settings we've used...so we can start to learn the different effects and outcomes they have.
    Perhaps providing them would be a good reminder...as much for yourself more than anyone else. Just my opinion.

    As for this shot....i'm sorry but i'm just not feeling it. There isn't really anything on the building that excites me. On the plus side, I do think that your cropping and after work has made it more appealing than its original form.
    Thanks for sharing it tho and keep posting and practicing!
