Just a further thought about how this forum works. Suppose you posted this shot and had two questions about it: (1) does the composition work? and (2) does it seem a little too flat in tonality? Someone could come along and play with the image, as I just did very quickly (and not too expertly), and reply: (1) the composition is almost a charicature of the rule of thirds, and it may suffer from a lack of clear subject focus, i.e., I am almost looking at two or three images, and (2) maybe giving it a bit more "punch" and bringing out a bit more in the midtones might help the "flatness." So here is a slight crop and a little tweaking with levels and hue/saturation adjustments. What do you think?
