Something about the composition on this... not sure. Cant figure out what it is thats making me feel this way. maybe that theres so much unused space on the top and right side of the photo for a portrait position...?... i dont know. :blink: Maybe it's jsut the direction they are looking in that's throwing me off..?.. :silly:

I really like the black/white contrast of the statue. That came out really well. :beerbang: :thumbsup:

I like it. Maybe about 10% off the top and 5% off the side. That would put the horse's face at right about the 1/3 points and lead the eye down to the man.
Note: I am a finicky crop freak due to my background in graphic design in BC (before computers :) )

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

Thanks guys. When I found this statue I loved it, had to take a picture of it. The problem was, it was next to a parking lot fill with cars. I didn't want the cars/parking lot in the background. So the angle is a tad off compare to what it could have been.

I like this...although i think I would have gone in closer to fill in the frame...and not have so much space around the horse. love the black & white!

Maybe they should ban cars from parking lots :blink: It still works.

It's too far away from me. I'd get a lot closer and fill the frame like others have said.
