I was walking by this and thought the evening sun made it look cool so I snapped the pic. I kinda like the golden light on it.

It shot a bit soft, but I don't know if I should keep it or not.

c&c welcome. Thanks for looking

I like the soft light on it, but just a little too warm for me...I'd just crank up the WB a notch. Good pic!

I like it, too...I agree with shorty that it looks pro. The only thing for me is that the glare on top is very distracting to me.

Thanks! My intention was to capture the warmth of the evening sun which is why I didn't mess with WB in PP.

Thanks!! I agree the glare is distracting which is one of the things that I dislike about it.

Maybe I could fix that in PS. Haven't done anything with it in PS except to add the border.

You should be able to burn it a little and make it much better. Or maybe those with more PS expertise than I could offer a better idea. :)

There are a few things I would do differently if I have a chance to shoot this again and hopefully I get that chance today especially since my new lens is due to arrive today....:)

This picture is far from perfect. Maybe next time.

I shot this in manual mode. I don't much of that or as much as I probably should.
I mostly shoot portraits using a strobe which means I am in AP mode almost 100% of the time.

This photo is actually a product of the inspiration that I have found here at this forum. There are numerous folks here who are very creative and I have seen many powerful photos displayed by both beginners and pros alike.

This forum has helped me tremendously and I consider it to be a valuable tool in furthering anyone's photography.

Thank you for the comments and thank you to all who have posted their photos.

Have a great day!!

Now quit reading this and get to shooting!!! :lol:
