About the Image(s)

It was taken on a sweltering day this summer, quite a few people are enjoying a small water feature in downtown Toledo.
Taken with my DJI Mavic 1/30 at f 2.2 ISO 100. I capture in RAW format and the images are flat when I import them into Lightroom, so I increased the exposure and saturated the colors some.

What a fantastic fountain! Looks like a great place to hang out on a sweltering hot day, like we've been having this year.
Love the colors and the geometry and the general composition.
I would love to see a directly overhead shot, of course, but I realize that it isn't advisable to do with people in the shot. In lieu of that, I would like to see the photo aligned on the horizontal lines of the fountain and the sidewalk. It feels a little too askew to me.   Posted: 08/17/2019 15:03:31

Oh good... I do too! Didn't want to offend. I know how it is to try to get above people.   Posted: 08/17/2019 15:22:36

I really like the color contrast, and would like to see it punched up. Also, Lisa's crop suggestion is the one that works better.   Posted: 08/17/2019 16:04:52

Nice image with it's color. It is right pic for taking from above. My opinion is don't need to keep all people siting on the left, just more crop on the left and on the top so can zoom in the picture to see well water   Posted: 08/17/2019 17:34:40
