Default What do you guys think of this one?

Kind of different, and obviously towards the artsy side. Do you think it makes RP standards, and if not what could be improved? Thanks!

I think it stands a chance to tell you the truth. A small chance, but a chance. I'm a big fan of OOF shots/shallow depth of field shots. The only big problem I see with this is, what am I looking at here in the foreground here? Also, there is some grass in the front blocking the view of what we're supposed to be looking at. You could try it, and like I said I like it, but this is on a fine line here. It needs some processing also, I don't know if you processed this or not. A little boost in color and saturation, and some sharpening is in order. Wait until you hear from others who know what they're talking about, haha.

I think it is too confusing. The foreground, I don't know what that is. The structure, don't know what that is, and it is obscured. Given I don't know what the foreground thing is, the most dominant element, in the sense that the eye is naturally drawn to it, is the obs car and it is blurred. It doesn't hold together as a composition, it is just a bunch of stuff. Not a fan, sorry.

I agree. The main thing that stands out to me is the "story" here is confusing. Chris, what would you like the viewer of the image to learn about this scene?
