The idea is really beautiful but for me is too much cutted...This could be a first or second place with but with another cut!!

Im talking about the bottom......wasn't a good idea cut all feets of those horses and statues....because in this way the entire scene composition is choked

the top cut is ok.

Hey its refreshing to get an honest critique, I like the 2:1 landscape format a lot but it can be limiting for vertical features, just have to keep on trying I guess.
Many Thanks my friend.

i got a strong concept about a crop.....A crop for me must to be always in relation to the main subject/object. 


Your cut was ambitious here...and really difficult because vertical works aren't easy :D and indeed.....
Before, with eyes relaxed i was watching another giant problem here.....Focus your vision on the left where there is the giant statue. The statue is giant ok? and those horses nearby? This mean that those horses got the same giants legs of the statues..Impossible :D  This is a great visual anomaly...well more right say proportion problem!....because this mean that they are flying :D  and yes they are flying for real ------> sta.sh/0179osk8ghbq I watch always these details but many times I don't want to write technical stuff
i think u know this problem because u was  looking for a compromise to the final visual composition...relative to your prefered cut. but when u do a cut, u can't use random proportions! ( i love my shit english hahaha)


I see a great hidden potential here! to fix the problem there are a lot of solutions 1 of these is create a sort of cut like gates of Argonath......37.media.tumblr.com/63b1ea3634… In this ur case using only half statue......+ of course all that background and the general dominated by the magnificence of that enviroment linked to Rome.

Hey I looked again at this and you are completely right, I had not seen that anomaly at all - I was focussing on what we do see and not what we do not. You have a great eye and your English is more than adequate to express your thoughts very clearly my friend. I appreciate that very much.

I'm a poor loser!
No pressure, its not work here after all and if you want to be busy you can always come and strim our paddocks.
I just spent the whole weekend doing it, we need a donkey (or a llama!)
