    interesting... do you have a larger version?


    in my opinion, this might make a better landscape shot... I don't know... to small to tell.

    Interesting, I like it. The slats in the bench lead the eye right to the woman. I just wish the sky wasn't blown out.

    I was the exact opposite... I started at the woman, and the slats lead me right out of the picture. That's probably only because I saw the top half of the picture first though.

    Nice capture.

    I think a landscape version of the same image might work as well. I resized my window to show me landscape and it looked decent. I find that there are alot of slats and it dominates the picture a bit too much. Going horizontal would allow you to keep the woman the same size, keep a similar effect of leading the viewer, but have her as more of a dominant figure

    i love this shot, but prefer a tighter square crop. it balances out the interest, and the space.

    Funny, for me too the first word that came to my mind was "interesting". I had to go out and come to see that my eyes go from closer back to the girl. Any image that makes you pause for a moment and think [anything at all] has merit.

    Absolutely love the composition of the original image. Only thing I'd change is maybe do something about the (lack of) sky – adding some vignetting, perhaps – and clone out the "thingy" on the top right-hand side.

    Two thumbs up from me.

    Beautiful! Love the lines of the bench leading to the person sitting. I personally like the portrait(original) crop better because the wooden planks in the foreground add so much more depth then if it were cropped...it's what makes the shot
