    this is really good example of "natural framing" were you frame the subject with another subject. i would have liked to see its from a little to the right though.... dont have much else to say cause flowers arnt really my thing... great capture...

    keep shooting

    Personally i think this photo is pretty good as is... If you moved the shot over you would wind up with everything too centred... I hate shots with everything perfectly aligned... They just look so fake. So yeah, Nice shot

    I feel like it would have more impact if you were a little closer to the people. Also, I would likely have cropped it a little closer in. It feels to me like there is more green at the top than there needs to be; feels a bit top-heavy.

    It is a very good example of framing and utilized the rule-of-thirds well. Overall, it's a very nice picture and easy to look at.

    I really like this shot. The first thing that attracted me was the colours-warm reds and browns next to cool blues and greens. When I really started to look at the image I noticed the wonderful lines that pull you into the picture. I love the natural framing of the trees which sets up a circular motion which really gives alot of impact.
    I like where you have placed the people in the image. Their size and neutrality do not stop you from going further down the path. If they were closer I think you would be splitting your subjects. (what is this picture about-people or landscape for example.) With this composition you have made a strong choice as to the subject.
    To make this an even stronger image I would like to get rid of that too bright white at the end of the path, I guess it's the water in the fountain with the bright sun on it, but it just seems too bright for the soft lighting in the forefront and I think draws your eye too quickly along the path lines.
    A really nice shot. Thanks for sharing this image.

    Nice shot! if you can go and take the shot again, try waiting for something special to pass by, like an old couple, or someone on a bike, just a suggestion, the pic is already nice as it is tho
    also try to watch out for the angle of the sun since this scene has potential for dramatic sunrays

    what i wanted was for the path that is coming into the foreground to end up right in the corner, it would feel more natural that way for me
