Its more than that, the horizons are on different levels on each side of her, it balances angled lines and straight lines, the cliff in the background is another angle coming towards us.

there is alot going on and it all balances out perfectly. (except for her broken foot)

OP - that's a pretty good shot. Possibly you might want to crop slightly to more centre the middle.

your so retartet with your pseudo-arty bullshit compositions which say nothing. is it so difficult to differ? cant you SEE?? can't you stop just repeating what somebody told you art would be? start LOOKING! and then think. i really hate every single one of you pretentious bastards.

here's some more good composition to keep the niveau up in this thread.

and btw .. it's not that you choose the wrong phitographer, but what your posting in this thread just shows that you absolutely have no clue what a goid example for composition is .. but you think 'hey it's peter SMITH! it MUST be a good composition'. ... but no.

Seriously now, why does nobody like it? What is bad about it? At least put some CC in there.

>>2736284
It's just nothing. The subject is too small, hard to see, and ultimately not interesting at all. There's too much detail that distracts. It's obvious what was trying to be done, but it isn't working.
>>
>>2736289
Oh well... It especially sucks when this is the one I really like.
>>
>>2736289
Btw, what WAS trying to be done here, if you don't mind telling?

Not getting what's good about almost any of these != having more.

Literally, what does make you like the crop better than >>2735615 ? They both could show more details to me, but the uncropped image is just better.

Rule of thirds/golden rule, him being so overpowered by piano and positioned in the far corner, I just find it more pleasing and more interesting to look at. It looks cleaner to me, without unnecessary top of the walls and badly cropped piano legs. You can still see that it is a piano, the gray/white contrast on the wall is more noticeable etc. The composition is just nicer to me.

That's just like... your opinion mate. It looks nice, I think it is a little bit unfair to call it a snapshit.

piano is such a big mass in the uncropped pics, it just looks wrong at that angle except if cropped

Hm. My perception doesn't seem to agree, but thanks for the explanation.
>>
>>2736411
The world would be boring if we all had the same taste. There is no right and wrong here. The uncropped ones are also fine to me, I just personally find a cropped version fresher and it is something I haven't seen as much as the uncropped one. But just by looking at some technicalities and elements that are supposed to make a nicer composition (e.g. rule of thirds in this case), the cropped one achieves them and the original doesn't.
