Looks like a nice rural location. Reshoot with the buildings less centered in the frame. Wait for the broken cloud cover to move so that the buildings are highlighted.

Im curious as to what you shoot with all the expensive equipment you have. Do you do product or model photography by any chance?

as for the image, you need to have a good eye and know about colors and what appeals to the eye. The shot could have potential with different crops and also the right color adjustments. you need to make the image "pop" by means of adjusting things such as lights, darks, highlights, shadows, saturation, luminance, etc...

you also have to think about how to place the foreground and how it would enhance the primary subject. I always am moving left and right up and down all while having the subject and foreground in my view, so that i can find the best angle to shoot. In this instance, it seems like the foreground is just protruding in to the image. You cant just pick out any foreground and assume itll accentuate depth and perception.


There are no rules for a good photograph and there are no excuses for a bad one.

I fail to understand what Dino's equipment list has to do with this thread but I think mswobo's picture has something.

I think you also failed to realize the message was directed solely at the OP.

Disclaimer: Due to the fact that I was away from my primary computer, I edited this picture on an uncalibrated monitor using a free web based image editor.

Since you have image editing on I decided it may help to see what I and others are describing. I believe the subject itself is pretty good, but needs a few tweaks to make it even better. First, unless you are photographing mountains the horizon line should typically be kept level (this is not always true, but in this case I think it helps the image). You did a good job using the "rule of thirds" and I believe your focus on the ground rather than sky was correct. However, as others mentioned the image could have been improved by waiting for the clouds to pass over so the entire image is evenly lit and so the farm buildings are highlighted better. (This can be fixed with enough patience by using PS or LR if you have access to it) Lastly, the foreground elements are a bit overwhelming in this image and demand too much attention. I think it is mostly due to how dark they are. I have heard before that the human eye gives more weight to "dark" objects vs light, especially when placed on the bottom of an image. Something to keep in mind when choosing a foreground. Without further ado, here is my 3 min web edit to show you how I think the image can be improved:

But, unless he's removed it since, the OP hasn't got an equipment list ???

stayhumble has seen my list and no offense is taken by his question. He has offered solid advice on several pics.

The location is nice.
But the overcast day will be difficult to get a photo 'pop' if including the sky.
Few option: the same scene, but come back during clear day in very earlier morning, or late afternoon.
Or, use telephoto lens and focus mainly on the farm houses, and cut off most sky.
Good luck shooting and have fun :D

the BIGGEST thing i do when im not fond of my images instantly is ill play with the crop. Remember there are no rules to dimensions. Whats good is good. sometimes ill do a 1x1 square, or crop the single image into a panoramic dimension.

Ill try an edit tomorrow.

BTW, i THINK i know what you are trying to capture on that image. But if what im thinking is right, the shadows should be around the houses and the subject should be lit. Next time, wait for the clouds to open up on the main subject if possible.
