Cornell University was my dream school. I applied early decision, got accepted, and didn't have to worry about filling out anymore nasty applications. I'm now in my second year of living this dream.

this image was hurt for me because of the lack of focus for both the foreground and the background. the windows on the school are also a bit overblown with light. sorry I could not be more positive with this image:( 4

It's a nice picture, and the way you shot it is nicely framed. It doesn't shout "dream" to me, but still interesting.

Not sure what exactly you mean by dream school but the shot itself while the concept is well thought out since you have the forefront so out of focus I would hope the school would be sharp and clear, a more defined dream per say. The tower seems the sharpest point of the shot while the left of the school looks almost as out of focus as the fore front of the shot.

Excellent composition. That school looks like a model - is it? Or is it a real building?

A school where one learns how to dream? Or a school that you could go to if your dreams could come true? Either way, I like the sillouhette-framing effect.

Nice composition. The strong light reflected by the windows of the church works well.

So you want to go to Cornell? I loved that clock tower, I have pictures of it from all different angle, at all didn't times of day. That's an interesting framing of the building. I take it that this is taken from the dorms at the bottom of the slope on the upper floor? Most people probably won't know what school that is from though, unless they have been there.
