Hi Ernie,

Exposure seems to be spot on and i like the blue and white colors in this shot. I do have some points though which i feel would improve this shot.
1) There is a shadow that's crept into the frame at the bottom (yours i believe Smile) which adds to distractions.

2) At both edges of the frame LHS and RHS its a bit cluttered and half cut of cars which distract, i think a closer zoom would have been neater.

3) I feel there is too much space at the bottom of the shot again a closer zoom would sort that one out

I have attempted to correct the above points in the mod. Hope you find this useful.

On a side note the front shop area of the shot in itself would lend to an interesting shot it has a lot of detail and elements which would be of interest and would make a good image Smile, this could also make for an interesting color pop image if you like that kind of thing, with the shop area color popped and everything else in mono

This has a very matter-of-fact style that isn't really my cup of tea but which was popular in art photography at one time. It does need cropping to remove your shadow from the frame, though I don't have much of a problem with the half-cars at the edges, since they're part of the scene and the crop gets a bit tight if they're removed.

I do like the somewhat timeless and locationless feel of this — the garage itself doesn't seem to have changed much over the years. I also quite like the contrast between the bright, saturated colours and the rather mundane scene.
