Hi again Mark,
This one's not quite as extreme as the last one but the same issue with the sun applies. (Hardly surprising, since it was taken at the same time!)
I have scant regard for the so-called rules of composition so I don't have a preference in that respect.
I don't have a problem with names or logos being included on images either but it does look better without the date stamp.
It's a better angle, and the foreground woodwork is more interesting than a single post. The comments about the sun still apply though...put your finger over it and see how the light looks better overall, then imagine the shot without the sun in the frame. You keep the lovely colours, but lose the burnt out section, and if you a careful, the flare as well. You are moving the right way, you just needed to go further and turn a little more.
Much better foreground, but Nick and Bren are right about the sun. I think flare may be a reason for the appearance of softness in some detail here. Not only a good idea to exclude the sun, but also a good idea to shade your camera with your hand on the side the sun is, if you're using a compact or don't have a lens hood. You'd be surprised how much difference this can make. Sue
Although the foreground interest is much better than last time I would guess that the aperture is still at full, so I would still close down one if not two stops. It is very important also as I think you have now gathered, that you protect both your eyes and your camera sensor from direct sun, it can be harmful to both.
Look out for the rules of composition as they provide an excellent insight into how to go about things especially for beginners. Once you have mastered them you will be able to recognise when it is permissable to break them.
I see you uploaded this in the general gallery some time ago.
The general comment remains thesame. The sunis just too bright.
