You are aware from previous comments that I am not overkeen of the heavy framing together with the text that you tend to apply. But as you have included it again there is one thing that I do feel you must do with pictures like this one. I do feel that all the straight edges should line up. The left hand light back board and its lampshade need an anti-clockwise tweak. Compositionally, I would have preferred to have seen all of the bed-side lampshades in the picture rather than them being chopped off.

Quite a nice idea otherwise.

Actually quite reasonable but would prefer both the lights fully in the frame. Cutting each off does nothing for the composition.

To be honest I prefer your own images of nature than a picture of a picture.
You have some really lovely images in your portfolio taken from nature.
I'd love to see more of those.

Focus_Man anticipated me - I don't know if it was your intention to show the non-straight lamp and put it in a context, but if that wasn't the case, aligning verticals is a must here. As also indicated above, cropping part of the shades doesn't help the image in my opinion, so I agree with the above comments.

Other than that, I like the contrasting colours.

The lamp's the only thing in this shot that's not straight so presumably, it wasn't straight in reality.
That being the case, you'll need to resort to manipulation to move it, or leave it as it is, since it's really like that.
As has been said though, the crop's a bit tight and the border's too much for my liking (although I don't like borders of any kind, so that's a personal thing.)
If you want to use a logo, it's entirely up to you. It's your image to do with as you please.

Thank u all dear Frank,Paul,Kate,alistairfarrugia and Bren for those you all mentioned, it was a tight crop.....but as you all see in the meta data this was shot at the shortest focal length available in my lens that time.....there was no room available for me to step further back to catch the whole lamp....unfortunately this shot was taken by hand held so after taking the snap i realised there is a little tilt in the picture,so when making it straight in PS the little remaining lamp shade available in the picture also got chopped ....SadSadSad
...Thanks once Again for those comments dear Friends......SmileSmileSmile

Dear Kate sure i will concentrate more on others than a picture of a picture ( when i saw i was not able to control my self not to photograph it...somehow i really liked this very much)..thanks for the honest Feed Back dara friend.....SmileSmileSmile

Madhu, if you're using Photoshop's latest version, you might have a feature that will save you some trouble on some shots like this - it's the Content-Aware Fill. Not sure if you've ever used it, but it can help you save the image if you try the following:
1) Increase canvas size
2) Rotate as needed
3) By using magic wand, select the parts of the canvas that have no image information (black probably, or white/transparent).
4) Go to Edit, Fill, Content-Aware and allow your pC to work.

What this does is study the image and using a technique similar to the stamp tool, it fills in the selected part for you with "content-aware" material. Most of the times, it will help you gain some lee-way for such moments when rotating ends up cropping stuff out. Try it out, might help you end up with a better variant. Or else upload the original and I'll try it out for you myself. Smile
Thank u so very much for that xlnt information.......dear alistairfarrugia.....i was unaware of this technique....will try it and post it later......Thank u once again dear
