    Any comments appreciated. I think, this photo can benefit from some cropping, such as that white building on the lower right corner.

    That's a pretty shitty pic. You have branches hanging above blocking the shot, etc. Just way too many disctractions.

    oh? :(

    I actually put in those branches in the shot on purpose to achieve the "framing" effect. What do others think?

    it looks crooked on accident not on purpose...it has that effect uh it also looks a little blurry but that could just be me.

    yeah too many distractions.
    You might be able to work the framing the trees in idea, but you need to get closer or zoom more.

    IMO...i think if ur gonna use the branches to frame it....it should not show too much detail as so it won't lead the eye away from the main subject...the trees on the bottom and esp. the building in the foreground are too much of a distraction. try moving in closer or shooting from another angle and experiment with different lighting.

    One of the inherent problems with tilting your camera up when shooting buildings is that the buildings seem to "tilt" back in the shot. To fix this, you either have to elevate your camera so that you can frame the shot with a level camera, or get a "swing/tilt" lens.

    or use perspective correction in PS. which isn't as good as doing it in-camera IMO, but it costs less :p
