What a beautiful scene, and you have captured it with leading lines and points of interest throughout. I especially enjoy the patterns in the pavements. There is a large area in the foreground that makes it difficult for me to feel I'm going into your scene. Perhaps cropping would place the viewer on the point of entry.   Posted: 08/06/2022 13:31:33

I agree with Arabella on the foreground though I think she cropped too close at both the top and botttom. Here is my suggestion that shows more of the interesting brick work at the front.   Posted: 08/09/2022 19:37:40

I think all the crop versions improve the picture. The day I waas shooting the streets of Bergen, it was raining, so in muy pictjures I had almost no sky. That said, I think I like the sky and would crop lthe bottom as ARusty suggests. I would leave a bit more sky and crop the right itens on the left or desaturate them   Posted: 08/16/2022 13:01:05
