Lots of elements that I like here that make this work for me. I like the converging lines that give it depth. I'm quite keen on vanishing points. They also create the diagonals that I often try to incorporate to make a lively shot - even for a static subject such as this one.

I also love that colour; what would you call it - burnt umber?

Well seen.
EJWilkins: Thanks, I tried several shots and this was the one that worked for me, showing these giant parasols(?) at their best.
I suppose it would be called burnt umber, but in reality it's probably slightly faded orange. *grin*

Well done Ellie, really good capture here. smile

My only comment would be the crop, you could have perhaps gone a bit tighter on both sides - to the edge off the pillar on the right and the corner of the shade on the left?

EJWilkins: Thanks Chris.
I spent ages trying to work out where to/not to crop, and hesitated in case I took too much away. I think you're probably right. smile

i like the lines here like flowers in a row. did you try shooting one from underneath looking up. just thought it might looka little like a frank lloyd wright lilly pads colummns from underneath
EJWilkins: You know, I didn't! Wasn't that just plain stupid of me! I hope we'll go back there before too long and I'll try some shots from beneath them. THanks for the comment Nev, and the idea. smile
I like the perspective and the sense of space that I can feel.
EJWilkins: Thanks, these are so huge yet they didn't seem to dominate the area and make it feel claustrophobic.
