Its an interesting shot. It must have been dull for you to use +3, - but thats a good decision.

Everything is in the wrong lace compositionally, - but it still looks attractive due to the old architecture.

For me, this shot is all about the man and the dog, and you may have got a beyyer shot lower down, and in landscape mode to compose foe tese two elements


I also think the farme is too heavy and dark, and its appears oversaturated to me - could be just a monitor issue.


Ive loaded 2 mods, - Mod1 is the original with dark areas lifted a little, and the frame removed, plus de saturation, The second is one you might consider, -a square crop that makes the dog and the man the subjects by removing some of the elements you may have tried too hard to include.

As always,

I hope you find this constructive,



regards



Willie

Very nicely shot. Though I wouldn't fancy climbing those stairs with all of those plants. Smile

I liked it as presented, without the mods. It may be a little busy, but it adds to the character of the street, which for me makes the trio of subjects with the dog & man.

Perhaps the frame is a little broad, but it's your shot, & you are entitled to present it as you want.

I really am more attracted to your composition than the mods. It gives the feeling of the place, and is true "street photography". The details are what makes the photo interesting. I understand the classic reasons for wanting to crop the sign, but in this case I think the rule is better broken. The tension that exists in the varying elements of the photo is also its strength.

I like this compostion. While others focus on the man and dog, I saw the sign first, and found it very charming "5ive and se7en" LOL never seen numbers like that. I also like the wrought iron lamps, woudn't touch it. If you cut out the charming sign, you would also lose the green box baywindow, and part of the lamp. I wouldnt do that. Yes the man and dog are the main focus but there is a lot of interest going on, and I enjoyed looking at the street and doorways, and arched yellow door at the top. Invariably thats where the eye goes even if its partially obscured by the little tree. The colours and ambient light are fabulous. Lovely set of shots. I too prefer your original shots. Krystal

Great comments from everyone. I like this shot your original V. The only thing i would change is the title maybe "morning walk" or "street of stone" or a funny title Smile like "5ive and se7en"
