Taken in Drammen Norway. The round object you can see is a part of a sound sculpture called River Harp. The River Harp consist of two large steel balls on either side of Drammen River, reflecting the water flow and bridge oscillations from nearby Ypsilon pedestrian bridge and turning into lovely music.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Nice tones here and an interesting story to go with the giant metal ball.

There is a lot going on in this photo, which can either help an entry or hinder it. On the one hand, there is a lot to explore and see, which is always good; but on the other hand the eye goes wandering around too much, searching for a focal point to work from. Composition is a bit cluttered as a result. The runner blends a little too much into the pathway, a lower and closer POV to isolate them against the sky would have had more of an impact.

To me, the ball/River Harp is the focal point, mostly due its size and shape - everything else is angular. If only everything else on that stretch of path was gone, the image as it's shot would be a bit stronger.

If you are able to reshoot, by all means do; experiment with different heights and angles as the locale looks very promising. It just needs more exploring. Keep on shooting and entering!

Feel free to PM me,

Love the dark colors. Can't really see a sunset, I'm imagining it's to the left of the frame.

I like everything except the big tree in this. Perhaps you could have moved closer to the ball to take the trees out of play. Just thinking out loud.
