    I liked this shot. I would probably clone out the green lamp post and then use color replacement to reduce the impact of the buildings behind the trees. If possible I would also use a wider aperture to possibly blur the background a little.

I hope you don't mind but I just took a few minutes and made the adjustments I mentioned. I've posted it in the outtakes forum for your comments.

    I live in the city. During this challenge I was only able to move around on public transport. I cannot position a photograph of the trees in this park without having a glimpse of a building or two. I had hoped that the lovely early morning lighting on the line on trees leading the eye along the row and up towards the canopy would catch the viewers attention. It seems not. It is the buildings that grab the eye apparently and then the green victorian Lighting is jarring to the eye. If I had moved to the left I would have had trouble avoiding a much more prominent line of lighting and the wedding party photography.

    Forgetting the leading line theme, I really love the look of the trees to the right of the green post.

    For some reason, the green pole really distracts me here. Next I'm lead to try to perceive the white building behind the trees, but of course am unable to see enough of it. My overall experience is frustration. Maybe it's just me, so don't fret about it!

    Very attractive shot. Good camera position and composition. Right on theme for me even if the LLines are not as obvious.

    The background towers steal the scene from the tree line.

    The trees make a good LL, but the building behind distracts. Would shooting from left of the trees make a similar LL that takes the eye to the building?
