From DePaul University in Chicago. I 'think' I got a couple nice shots. This is the first that I posted. What do you think? I haven't done much with architecture or subjects like this in the past...

I like the mood, coloring, and exposure of the photo work well with your website coloring. I think the composition could be improved by not cutting the photo in half with the building and the statue. Because right now the background/building is so dominant. My eye sees the building first. Also cropping the photo at the top half inch, so the green of the roof is not showing seems to bring the eye down the main subject, the statue. Hope that's not too harsh. Feel free to tear my photos apart.

focus and DOF are pretty good, a little shallower would have been nice, also a little lower, gettting the roofs of the building in frame and maybe a base or horizon for the statue. The tops of historic and University buildings like that are often landmarks or markers in the old days, it a way its symbolic to include them in the photo even if they are blurred out in the background.
