    Ghent in Summer

    Hi, anyone who has been to Belgium 'for a day trip' probably went to Brugges - and 'enjoyed' the crowds. Just a short drive down the road is Ghent, an equally beautiful town - minus the crowds. This shot was taken in July 2007 on my first digital camera - a Canon 'point & shoot'. And before anyone mentions the need to straighten the buildings - talk to the builder - that's how they are

    Ghent in Summer

    Thanks for looking - C&C welcome.
    Cheers, Richard.

    this a lovely pic very pleasant pic indeed and very colorful in the foreground and subtle colors at the background my only complaint is the balance in the pic! the colorful flowers are taking too much space in the frame a little cropping frm the bottom shud even out things here

    Agree with Taken on both points (wow) - reduce to about 7x5?

    And I agree with both of you - it does look better.

    Cheers, Richard.

    Hmmm,
    I think they are both good, I do agree with the second image, as it is more balanced.
    (smaller portion of flowers).
    However I do think that the first image has more of a 'flow' about it that the second one doesn't have.
    eg the river curving round to the front gives a sense of movement that is pleasing to the eye.
    Then again it does take the attention of the feature
    I guess it just comes down to personal preference
