    don't mind me saying ... colours are nice but something is very wrong about the picture ... i would experiment with other ways of cropping this though ... how about making the 'yellow border' uniform in thickness? i'm just not sure ...

    ... paiseh, i'm very disturbed by the picture ... something must be done somehow ... lol ...

    i cropped it this way cos i wanted to exclude the two diagonal steel bars at top right and top left supporting the awning over the door. hmm.....u find the proportions in the pic disturbing? i feel that having a uniform width yellow border would make it the photo even more elongated..... departing more from the golden mean?

    not sure ... i think although this photo looks like a 'straight' and 'normal' photo it NEEDS to break some rule somewhere to make it really really interesting ...

    the impact seems to be diluted by the frame in the frame somehow ... unless something is done to that frame ... ... you can take me as talking nonsense if you like to

    ok ... just trying out something with your photograph ... tweaked the curves for the yellow frame and placed them side by side .... just a mad experiment, hahaha ... can't stand it ... this picture is getting on my nerve
