Some levels/curve work would help here?

A nice concept, but this piece falls short for a number of reasons, in my view. Your brightness and contrast are quite flat. It adds no definition and makes it look like no real time or thought was put in to the photo. The crop was a little too tight, and the sun just supplies no real "backlighting" because of its position. It seems to just wash out the one side. I'd suggest experimenting more with exposure values, and/or, if you can, aperatures an shutter speeds. Try and find one subject to focus on so that you get less general clutter in your shot, and really just try to visualize something, then go and work on making it happen. (A part that I still have major troubles with myself.) I just thought that I'd help try and give you some pointers, as comments on my stuff early on really helped me. Good luck!

This is very grainy and flat in terms of contrast. Photoshop might have been able to help with these. This also looks fairly low resolution. Was it cropped? Or did you use a low resolution camera or setting? Also, try experimenting with different exposure lengths and ISO settings might help too.

A nice idea, but it seems a little flat to me. Maybe a boost in the contrast or saturation?

a little pixleated, a great shame, but a good photo
