This photo had a lot of potential - the collumn looks interesting next to the doors on the right but the black area to the left demolishes the composition. It slices the photo in the center.

It creates contrast though, doesn't it? I thought the texture on the left column was cool?... hmmm.

Perhaps a person lit by a flash woudl have been nice to see on the left... perhaps in a contemplative pose? ne sais pas.... The line in the center is pretty strong.. too... A couple kissing here maybe? ... just ideas for the blank space. The texture is nice, your right, but nice for a background. In my opinion. Lots of potential. I like it for what it is alot.

If your ever there again... try the shot again with a subject in the blank space... break that bold line perhaps with a shoulder or arm or somthing. Im wanting to see A couple kissing here in the left... or somthing special yet hidden.. a moment. Stop down a bit to make them in focus... focus midpoint. GO back and shoot it again!

Will do, thanks so much for your input all of you, and especially Andrew Smile

I went there a bit ago for a Bob Dylan concert, perhaps on my next occasion I'll try and find it again. Thanks.
