  • 356 Day 23 - Another view of the docks

    Yesterdays photo was uploaded into the 'critique gallery' and I was delighted with the really constructive comments I got. Could I get lower, was I able to take the shot straight on rather than at a slight angle, was I able to get more foreground, c...0
