The people waiting patiently are what make the photo compelling for me. Human nature is a wonderful thing.

Yeah, the people around were very interesting to me. I tried to step back and capture the real scene. Being my first time, it was very exciting and I had a hard time capturing the experience. It was lots of fun with the family.

You are quite limited in the vantage point to make images here . That limitation is of course for many good reasons . Your photo brings back pleasant memories .

Accurately framed in line waiting photo with an open end story to it. Like that you though about documenting it, well done.

It's a bit dark. Just my input.

In my opinion, you should decrease contrast or increase brightness for shadows.

Thank you all for the feedback!

I have so much to learn. I have to fight the urge to blame the equipment. I see others capturing great images with their Pentax K-5's. I know what's possible. I don't like this Image much but figured I'd start posting anyway (admittedly due, in part, to the K1 giveaways) Hopefully with feedback like this, I'll start to improve. Thanks for the honest feedback, it helps!
