Hi Bricks_pt2. First-off; I like this image! It is a nice build, great use of depth-of-field and the low angle gets you eye to eye with Wall-E. Also, looking at the image makes me wonder what he found... a story is born  ???? .

What could improve this image? I believe the image would benefit from a different framing (I shopped a little to show the framing I would've chosen), this way more in line with the Fibonacci-spiral. 

Also, different lighting could've created more excitement in my humble opinion.

I really like the angle of the shot and the depth of field is lovely. 

I agree with the composition Foolishbricks suggested and to further improve it perhaps an object placed in the foreground camera left (out of focus) would help to further balance the shot. Wall.E famously lived on an Earth covered in junk and rubbish so a little pile of junk in the front of shot might have looked nice and been in keeping with the subject matter too? 

Just a thought!

Good advice on both fronts, crop and pop the light. I don't think it needs more in the forground, just a different crop style. SLRs typically shoot 3:2 format.... but i think wide simple backgrounds in 3:2 can lose a subject if it's tozoomed out. A 16:9 allows for more empty space to the left and right of a solitary subject while not making the whole photo seem empty. It's also the typical widescreen format... i wonder why...cause it's very... "cinematic"!!! On the other hand... single isolated subjects also look nice in 1:1 format. I really like the next photo on your flickr of batman... he looks good in 3:2 cause he fills a little more of the upper space, and it looks like you committed to a contrast level and contrast level that aren't overly neutral... slightly warmish with less contrast. Awesome! This one just needs a commitment to one or the other side os neutral contrast and white balance. Thanks for putting the photo up.
