|This was taken a while back from a cellphone before I finally bit the bullet and bought a proper camera. I did make some edits to the picture in lightroom. Despite being one of my earlier shots, I am still pretty happy with how it has aged. Any and all feedback is appreciated.|

No, but I can definitely see how you could get that impression. This was taken at an abandoned school. The building itself was a bit dated, but it was closed due to a shortage of funding.
|This is a really good shot. Good composition, exposure, lighting. I like it. |

Thanks man, I appreciate it.
|Nice shot! Composition is dope. The only critique I have would be to aim the camera juuuust slightly higher so the edge of the basketball hoop (your subject, I'm assuming) isn't so close to the edge of the shot. |
there is nothing to fear but fear itself
|thats a super good shot keep up the good work! (what camera you used?) |

Thank you! Yeah, ideally I would have shot this with a wider lens as I wanted to include the basketballs on the floor within the shot too. Unfortunately at the time I was only exploring with a cellphone so this was the best I could do. I believe the actual net does align pretty nicely with the rule of thirds, and I would say that overall the graffiti under the basketball hoop ended up being my subject more than anything else.

Thanks, it was just shot on a Galaxy S4. I would've had a proper camera if I had done this explore only a month later.

Yeah I agree, unfortunately I could not perfect this as much I would have liked. It's definitely easier with a proper camera and shooting in RAW.
|I rather like it. The red of the hoop and the net itself really stand out! |

Thank you. I generally strive for an urban desaturated look in my edits with an emphasis on some of the colors (mostly red in this case).
