Photo critique Here is where you can display your images and seek the comment, advice and, maybe, constructive critique of your work. Only post your images here if you are happy for frank feedback. If in doubt, use the beginners board instead. Only post your comments here if you feel you can make a constructive and polite contribution in response to what is, for some, a leap of faith in exposing their work to your critical comment.

Your composition doesn't obey the rule of thirds, but that rule isn't entirely obligatory. I might experiment by cropping off the right hand side to an extent.

What do you think?

Where was this taken?

The picture was taken at a sports stadium in Geneva, Switzerland. There is another view in my gallery.

Here is a crop of yet another view, is it better?

I think if you are going to crop closer, you need to get closer than you have. Just slicing off the top of the statue hasn't done much for me.

I still think just removing the right hand quarter or so will improve the first version a huge amount.

I have to agree with Ian. This is a far better crop. Ian is very busy so have taken the liberty of doing it as he suggested.

Thanks Ron, pretty much exactly as I would have done
