Hi! Sorry itís been so long! Iím a lot more active on my instagram account (@cdavisphotography) and Iíve had lots of school works over the past few months so I havenít had a chance to login to my photography accounts (I have Viewbug and YouPic too). Anyway, I took this photo last week when we found some abandoned rails! I hope you like it! In my opinion, my photographyís grown a lot since I last used this and I hope I continue to improve!

Welcome back, Caitlin!
I love this kind of photograph, and yours is a really good example. Some viewers might complain about the 'wash-out' on the left, but it doesn't bother me. It's an excellent image to experiment with. For example,
I wonder if you have tried inverting the image to place the ball in the upper half? I'm not sure it would be 'better' but it's worth considering. It would place the wash-out on the right; as we read images from left to right (just like books), the wash-out would become less noticeable.
Another possible version would be a square crop.

Hi Caitlin, great to see you uploading again! Smile

A fascinating scene, seeing it through the 'crystal ball' makes me look closer at the scene beyond!
