    hej, mister :)
    i agree with the Modphoto at the moment -;)
    when i was looking at the pic for a first time, i felt like ...maybe i would put a little "something" at the background, something what would make the 'twist'of stairs more visible?
    but , after the changes it became too obvious (?) for me, (personally)....so...i liked the first one's mood better :)

    ....but both are good, just a different - :)

    (hmmm...was i brutal enough? -;))

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I like the composition. To me it's almost an abstract. I'm just taking in the lines and textures without trying to identify anything.

    I think that more DOF would help. I don't like the soft textures on the trees at the bottom of the stair.

    I think that there are issues with the tonality that may be my monitor, the low res file, or the lighting/exposure. If it's the latter then you may have to try and reshoot.

    hi peeps

    Vonnagy i like these photos. both got plenty going on, for me.
    the painter in me feels the only lacking bit of #1 would be to
    highlight-up a couple of the trunks/brancges in the upper left
    area. its being picky, but IMO, thats the only region where the
    picture just indifferently leaves the frame with less dynamic than
    the other 3 regions.

    the second pic flies nicely straight-off the bat i reckon!

    :0)
