Your Photo: Our Critique

Ray Wongchinda submitted this image taken with Canon 5D Mark II, with an exposure of 1/1600sec at f/2.8, ISO 60. By using aperture-priority Ray has selected a very shallow depth of field which works well. The crop creates some nice triangles of space, especially across the bottom of the frame. This image, as simple as it seems, creates a nice graphic photo with good lines and colors. The rust on the post adds interest and color.

The top right edge has some white creeping in, either crop it out or as a last resort clone it out.
