A bench in Dresden

Visit my Facebook Page:…

Yesterday we visited our hometown Dresden. :)
This is the first picture of this trip. It shows the Terrassenufer in Dresden. On the left you see the academy of arts. In front there is the Semperoper and the Schlosskirche.

Made with Canon Eos 7D and Sigma 10mm.

Taken in: Germany / Dresden

This caught my eye passing over as just a thumbnail and I took a double-take and went to the full-size. The layout of the image is perfect, I like how you see down the whole bench which the direction of the planks draw to the top of the image, past the people on the walkway, and the warmer colors pull you back down to the bench. The darker shade of the buildings and the highest part of the sky really bring nice attention toward the warm colors of the bench and the sunset.

All in all this is a wonderful piece. Keep up the great work.

The first thing that draws your eyes is, obviously, the bench. It drags your eyes to the water front, as if all you want to do is sit there and watch the sunset.

The colors are great, the tones are perfect, and the overall composition is excellent. The Sigma 10mm is a very superb lens, and you've managed to grasp it wholeheartedly. The left side of the image I find to be a little darker than need be, yet it promotes the sunset well. I understand the need for the height of the photo, but the dark top of the image seems a little distracting. Perhaps cropping it would have suited better. I do also think that the center point is a little off on the photo. Perhaps had you shot the photo a little more from the center of the bench, it would appear easier to view.

Overall, This photo has an amazing feel and tranquility to it. Great job.

The concept is simple, yet extremely effective. I saw this from a distance at first, and thought that the bench ws a sort of starburst. The lighting is just about perfect, and really draws the eye in. I wonder how it would look if you burned in the guy in the center to make him more of a focal point? It might be distracting, but it would be worth a try, I think. Excellent drama and tonal range, very sharp, wonderful colors, good design elements, and it really makes me want to see more of your work and visit Dresden!

Funny and cute. I've always liked collie dogs. I also like cauliflower as a vegetable.

Hello, I am wondering if you would mind if I used your photo for a school assignment, it will not be posted online anywhere else by me and is just for the assingment. 
You're photo is amazing, all credit will go to you. 

Thank you for your time.
