I can see what you were attempting, however this one is so technically flawed that it should be tossed in the trash thanks to that rather large ugly finger obscuring the top left of the shot.

www.kodak.com has an excellent beginners guide to photography that you might like to read. A bit more time spent behind the lens rather than posting banal comments is needed methinks :devil:

although I know it's not anywhere near *there* yet, but what could have been done or added/removed besides the *ahem* "human rain cover"?

Even so,
after the crop, when you look at the shot, what does it say to you? I hope you don't mind me saying so but the colours look flat (and yes, i know it's a over cast day) and there is nothing to really "anchor" the shot.

Too man distraction along the sides as well.

An old maxim i would adhere to is, if cannot shoot,
then don't shoot.

Was once told that it was easier to shoot, than not to shoot if you know that the scene cannot bring out a positive shot....

I hope this doesn't come across as being harsh but if you could get the scene in better light, with a subject just turning around looking back into your camera, or something to that effect, it might come across better?

hmmm I think u didn't "get" the pic.. dun blame u hehe...
this was meant to be abstract, showing just an expanse of curves... in fact the more generic and flatter texture the better, where nothing BUT the lines are accentuated...
but u're right man, there's too much clutter esp the top sides..

sigh back to the LCD... ;p
