TBH, I think it’s great without any cropping and I think the colors are fine. The sky is balanced with the asphalt and give two parallel “lines” to frame what’s in between. The 4 “windows” are well balanced in the shot imo. The yellow is a little bright, but I think it is still balanced with the greenery on top (which,based on your title, was at…[Read more]
Thanks so more for all the continued thoughts ideas and suggestions. I like them all 🙂
Dorothy @dmstringer the wide cut you did looks really good and I think you’re right about healing that handle out.
