I like the way the fountain pops out from the picture and everything else just stays in blur. :D

I absolutely love Edinburgh, I hadn't visited the city since I was young and got the chance back in October to visit it again!

I absolutely loved it there, and hope to visit again in the next month or so, we just didn't have enough time to see everything there :heart:

Wonderful photo, the castle is so breathtaking :heart:

I like how the focus is on the fountain but the eye is still attracted to the house. The black and white really adds to the feel of it. Makes it seem older. :D
Only thing I'd suggest is cropping out a little more of that whitish space at the bottom.

I'll give the crop a try and see how it looks. :)

I wish you didn't use the spot soft focus filter. You should reshoot it. This is a type of shot i've been trying to get in Newport, Rhode Island around all the houses that the rich people own. There's some really creepy houses

Ummmm, no filter used here.

The holgs camera has an incredibly poor lens that is sharp in the centre, but has massive focus fall off towrds the edges.

It's all part of the charm of the camera.

You may indeed, good sir. :)

This is Princes Street Gardens in Edinburgh, Scotland's capital.

The building in the background is Edinburgh Castle.
