It's funny to see how conflicting takes of identical elements congregate here (and elsewhere). Obviously, there's little consensus. Apparently, when it comes to elements of composition, great sensitive critical facility can follow righteous inability.

What I want to point out here, that there may well be definite rules of composition demanded by the work itself. These are often variants of what we know already, if only it were so easy to see what we know.

Of course, I'm thankful for all the comments, but if a picture like this 'lacks interest', I would really like to know why, so I may find out, if it was my failure as a photographer or something indicative of a failure of feeling or perception on part of the writer or his/her social environment.
I also could not find out, why one should 'bring the subject closer' and to what purpose. A crude 'next time crop the bottom' also does absolutely nothing except take up virtual real estate, which could be occupied by some interest in the matter at hand.

DennisF, frisca, and robbieh actually 'looked at the picture', and when they were done, had something useful to say.

reminds me of stanley park in vancouver. :) Seems a tad oversharp, but I like the angle you have on the carriage where its more in the background and we are drawn (no pun intended!) to the horses. I might have cropped out a bit more of the left of the shot to get our horses over a bit in the frame..but I'm not sure if that is actually a better crop than what you have! :)

Like the composition - the horses have someplace to go.

I like everything about this photo except the busy background. It tends to cause the horses and buggy to blend in to the background. Especially because the foreground is so simple. It is still a nice photo though.

The horses' expressiveness makes this a very interesting photo!

some of the picture is over exposed and some is under exposed.
the picture itself lacks interest. You probably could have cropped out some of the sides or bring the subject closer.
