    I am often drawn to snapping a few pictures of this house when I pass by. There is something I like about this picture, though I can't seem to get a crop that I'm happy with. The corrugated wall to the left is distracting, yet I like the colourful weeds along the bottom. Any suggestions would be great.

    I would say there are two pictures in this one; one is the rural scene with the house, weeds and all. The other one is the hovering insect and the flower. The latter would have to be cropped down to a size that would only be useful for web use, but it is good to see the possibilities.

    For the rural scene I would decide what elements are crucial; the house, de weeds in the foreground, and a little bit of sky to add even more depth and space to the picture

    For the bee, a slightly different point a fiw would have been better, now the flower and bee are just on the edge. by crouching a bit more with the camera, the flower and bee would have been completely against the background of the house, and without the light coloured grass, it would have stood out a bit more.

    Wow. They are great! sabestian, I like your B&W, and janneman, your first one is just how I remember the scene when I'm not looking at the picture, and your style of framing is just what I need to work on more myself.

    Cheers,
