Your Photo: Our Critique

This line of colorful buildings caught the eye of Mark DeSouza. The sun appears to be coming in

This line of colorful buildings caught the eye of Mark DeSouza. Mark used a Canon Rebel XT set to program mode with settings of 1/30 sec at f/10, ISO 100. These setting have given the image great depth of field. The graphic lines of the buildings work nicely and the colors catch your eyes. If a graphic image is the goal I would suggest moving to either remove the tree all together or have the tree as a positive part of the composition. Right now the tree and the power line with the orange strip on it clutter the foreground. The sun appears to be coming in from the right of the frame so shooting from the other end of the block would still give you the buildings, the tree would still be in the shot but would be anchoring the far end. Mark this is a nice shot but I think it can be improve upon with a little work. Good job seeing the possibilities.
