    Constructive feedback please

    http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/a...Picture037.jpg

    Could someone please just tell me if this is any good. Its not taken on anything much. 4.1mp 10x optical zoom kodak.

    But i'm interested in hearing a technical breakdown of what is good and bad in it.

    Not technical review, but from a personal point of view, I like it. Looks great. Superb wallpaper and quite dramatic in terms of capturing the look of a potential storm brewing over a sports event.

    I like it.
    It is Inevitable.....

    erm...well...its a bit, empty to be honest.
    ok, so it shows the roof of the stadium nicely but what else? there's no drama to create the impact of what may be a storm onthe way...what I don't know is whether the grounds are empty and thus likely to affect very few people. What I'd rather have seen is some of the pitch in the lower 1/3rd of the image, packed stands and some players, whilst the threatening sky above hangs there - meaning going wide-angle. I'd also selectively burn the sky in a bit to make it darker and emphasise their depth...

    also would have tried a mono-conversion...

    I agree with shiato around all the dead space.

    But, as it is maybe I would loose the top left part of the stadium roof, either with a crop or "paint" it out?

    I think it has potential. Don't agree with it being 'empty' but do agree that the roof in the top left should go.

    Not sure what else i'd change, perhaps a play with photoshop is needed!

    For me its all about seeing what people think, understanding what pointers there are.

    Happy to see all and any suggested changes/improvements.
