Ahhh Ok, looks really serious. I still think you need a focal hook to catch us on this one.

I'm trying to figure out what this is...? The top of a chimney, a lighthouse, an observatory? What is the hook? (the focal point to catch us)

Good idea to put this on an angle for setting it in this kind of format always brings a tinge of excitement rather than straight up and down (which oftentimes works as well depending on what you want).

Hey, I don't think you can use this photo for two contests...you have it up in the "HORSE" contest....the mods will take it down and you will lose a spot on the contest...so hurry up and replace it.

Your POV makes me wonder where you are as all the folk are standing behind her. A good catch but slightly soft...which really doesn't matter.

I like the monochrome for it is well done with good tonal ranges. I do think that the umpire lacks a certain sparkle, standing like a telephone pole showing no emotion at all with back to us. Technically you have a huge dust spot by his cap and that needs to be removed. Formatting him into the rule of 3's helps but doesn't save the image.

Here is something from Wikipedia.

In March 2007, Greater Manchester Police seized two golliwogs from a shop after a complaint that the dolls were offensive..


Soon, in the UK, in order not to cause offense, it is said that Sharia Law will come into effect and all women will have to wear a hijab.

Such an innocuous and cute doll and too much PC.

I like this shot, thank you.

This is a well composed shot and doesn't look like you just walked about and snapped it. The fact you left some of the background in the photo adds to the story and your pov coming in close to the baskets gives a good solid feel. If you have photoshop you could have darkened the sky in somewhat to give a more dramatic effect. Nonetheless, it is a grand shot.

Please check the level on this photo as it seems to lean to the left. Also, the intense blowouts of white on the right-hand side may be brought down a touch with shadow/highlight lever. I like these kinds of photos, antique....
