I don't know what you want me to look at.
Not a bad image, except that "bar" through the bottom part just ruins the whole image - my opinion. Also, on my monitor, it appears to be a bit overexposed. I would also crop out the lamp and trees on the lower left. My 0.02¢ FWIW.
yeah i thought the bar was a little distracting
Except for the bar it is very good
How come you thank the positive comments and ignore the others?
I seriously don't know where you're coming from. Were you expecting him to respond to the below?
Your comment was not a critique or a criticism. What's more, the OP responded to the others who gave him actual feedback, both positive and critical (notice the comment about the bar being distracting by both WesternGuy & Freqency).
It seems you're questioning why the OP didn't respond to you. Well, I suspect he didn't respond to you because your comment was useless.
It was a statement that I had no idea what was important in the picture.
If someone takes a picture, i can only assume that what is in the frame is there on purpose and I didn't understand what I was supposed to be looking at.
Since you seem to know, why don't you explain it?
I chided the OP to answer me because responding to questions is a good way to learn.
I think that the Traveler was trying to ask the OP what they were looking for C&C about, i.e. was it for the exposure, the concept, the composition, etc.,etc, etc....it's always a bit difficult to know what to say when someone posts a photo with no other comment other than a general request for C&C.
To the OP, what were your own thoughts about this picture? You said that you also thought the bar was distracting, what else would you say yourself about it? Oh, and what were your exposure settings (if you want C&C on that aspect)?
I am with GhostDog on this one. When I post some for C&C I want to hear your opinion on the shot, not to renforce any ideas I had on it. I want to hear from a completely different perspective/voice so I can learn from a wider range of people. Does not mean I have to agree with your comments but it provides insight into how others could view the photo.
To the OP, I like the composition but it looks over processed to me. The clouds just dont look right to me and the color in the building just does not feel natural. Plus the whole street light, sign does stand out.
I just read a more detailed response you had about wanting the OP to give shot at creative criticism of their own work, much better explained then in this thread. Really, imo, is a separate subforum or meeting for it. I learned a lot from a similar group before realizing now that not everyone is ready for that level or can express themselves to that level.
