To be 100% honest, I don't
There is nothing particularly striking about it, and the light is terrible.
ill agree, lighting is off, colors are blah
maybe get a different perspective (with a subject?) and you might produce something interesting
it's annoying that there are objects that are not discernible. what's that stake in the mulch, and the big black thing behind it.
Looks like a sprinkler head and a stump.
The "stake" is a sprinkler, and I'm not sure what big black thing you're talking about.
I think i like this picture better
How are the lighting and colors off? I just got a new monitor so I hope the colors aren't fucked on it. Can someone correct to what would be good colors/lighting so I can see the difference?
It's more the POV. It's not an interesting angle, at all, and what are you trying to capture?
What is says to me is, "Oh hi, I just stepped on my back porch and took a picture of my landscape bark."
I am not trying to dog on you at all, just expressing what it appears to be.
You really need a subject in the frame to make it interesting. Maybe tell us what you are trying to capture, and we can help you make a picture out of it.
Sorry, that's a horrible image. Absolutely no subject. Horrible lighting. Boring perspective (standing height). It looks like your camera went off accidentally at your hip.
Can you explain what you mean by horrible lighting? I know its a boring pic, but the lighting looks fine on my monitor.
There is almost no detail in the very dark shadow area towards the top of the image. And then very extreme and uneven sun and shadow elsewhere.
What are you trying to convey with the picture? Why do YOU like it?
I think that if you're going for interesting without a subject, it would probably look best if you got down on the same level as the brick, got real close, and got the texture of the brick in focus and just led our eyes across the picture
the lighting is more or less the shadows look good (in the middle, corners are way to dark), then the highlights are just way to bright, if it were more even it would be better.
and as far as the colors, they lack contrast, and some saturation, a little PP and you could make the colors "pop" a bit better. Its not your monitor.
What lens did you take this picture with (I suppose I could just look at the exif)
There's no EXIF.
take another version of the pic with some of the suggestions posted, play around with some PP, and see what you can come up with
Don't bother. Find something more interesting than a snapshot of bark mulch at standing height.
yea, just go take a snapshot of something interesting, with crappy perspective.
It will still make a shitty picture.
