Well composed shot, a little heavy on the colours, not sure about the boarder

I'm not much of a fan of the border you have. It's a good idea, I just don't think it works very well here. The photo itself is gorgeous.

Normally I don't like borders but I DO like this one. Well executed. The subject and its composition are very good. It may be just a bit oversharpened. In general the saturation is quite good, but the blue in the lower right is too intense for my taste. If I were editing it, I might have used a layer mask to tone it down just a bit. As is, it puls my eye away from the rest of the photo.

Wonderful texture. Distracting border.

The composition is good. I would tone down on the color saturation a bit though. The highly saturated colors makes the bricks look a bit unnatural.

A good shot with a good use of the diagonals/leading lines in a photograph.
Color levels and details look good here as well as an interesting subject.
The framing really takes away from this. A simple white border, or a simple white border with a 1 pixel black inner line would have presented it better in my opinion.

Not keen on the frame but the colours and subject are excellent.

I agree.

love the border in this shot... nicely done... the water has a great effect, and the colors are beautiful!

I like the border, but maybe not here I find I am looking at it instead of the stunning photo! 7

Beautiful colors and textures and a very interesting subject. Why did you have to add that desat border. It really detracts.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2006 10:57:44 PM
Great perspective, composition, and color. The border is distracting and takes away from the beautiful shot.

Very sharp. Wonder DOF.

I like the colours in this, I don't like the border
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The colours are just a bit too intense for me - nice subject though!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2006 10:29:05 AM
Beautiful and timeless

too saturated to my taste

Great photo, like the colours and textures out there, not too sure about the border technique.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I don't like the frame it distracts from the rest of the picture. Was the water really that green?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Frame! I did not really see the frame as necessary, nor as complementing the photo. It kind of ruins it for me to be frank. You'll probably get mixed reviews on it, and polarizing the voting body usually does not produce good results. However, if you shoot (and post-process) to please yourself first, you've done a great job! 7

very sharp photo,colors are enriching with the good use of the light..
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The torqued-up colors work for me.

IMO the border is destroying this otherwise excellent image. this is especially true on the right side, where I mourn the occluded arch.

I LIKE THE BORDER. IT HELPS ADD AN EXTRA PUNCH TO YOUR IMAGE.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wonderful clarity all around, I can almost hear the water...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/01/2006 01:36:14 AM
It's a nice image with a great point of view and comp, but to be honest I think it's oversharpened and oversaturated...the blue is a spectacular colour bit it all looks unnatural imho...nice composition though 7

Not sure about the border, though...
