good choice of placement for the fountain... the water does have texture but its definitely something that I normally wouldn't consider when thinking about texture :) I see the texture in this image, but the image doesn't make me think about texture when I look at it. = 5 - jmsetzler

Funny, I see the stone as smooth. Would have cropped out the right wall, so that the right end is similar to the left. Would have cropped out the top stuff too. Actually, would have seen more close up of the water fall to underscore the texture aspect and give the picture more life.

The human eye can see the roughness from this distance and lighting angle because the brain puts that texture information in when it processes the image. The camera has to be right in its face to see texture.

Interest shot, but as for showing texture, I don't think that it does.

Technical Aspects4
Meets Challenge9
Total Score6

For those that are just learning, like me.

Composition: Scoring in this area is based on basic composition of a picture and includes the rule of thirds, balance, cropping, and curved and diagonal lines. Subject matter that does not lend itself to the picture or otherwise unwanted is also considered here.

Originality: Scoring in this area is based on pictures or concepts that I have seen, as well as how much effort you have invested in the picture. Usually a little something that sets it aside from a snapshot. Does it make me want to come back for another look? You know things like that.

Technical Aspects: Focus, exposure, lighting, and other special effects (done by the camera), and post processing are all considered in this category.

Meets Challenge: This is based on my interpretation of if you, have/have not, met the challenge. This is fairly simple but quite important for this site.

There are many sites that can give you assistance in achieving better skills in photography, but I think the best way to learn is to take pictures and show them to other people. Believe me when it is a good one you will know it.

Good luck!

I can appreciate this picture but the rough texture isn't really evident here.

Looks very good. I think I would have cut off the (half of a) fountain on the very far right, or I would have shown the rest of it. Cutting that fountain right down the middle just doesn't seem right. I do like how you off-centered the big fountain in the middle (Which more than makes up for the cut off one)
It's a pretty good picture and I've given you enough crap about it, so here's what I give you: 7

Should have repositioned or cropped to get rid of the distracting top portion.

nice photo but slightly too crowded.

You know the wall is rough cause you were there... I can't really 'see' the roughness in the photo though. I think to make this shot work you would have needed to get your feet wet... literially... a close up of the water coming down the red part of the wall would be more interesting. Of course, that's just me.
