This is beautiful. Virginia (and West Virginia) have some beautiful places to photograph. Love the natural beauty here.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

This feels almost like a scene from a graphic novel or RAW magazine, with the stark shadows, flat colours, use of angles and grey tones. Interesting use of processing, you could make this your own style if you so choose. Be warned though that such pp is verging more on digital art than photography and voters may take you to task for it.

My main nitpick is the colours versus shapes, the colours are vivid but highlight relatively unimportant areas in the shot. The old corded phone box by the wall is the focal point, but it's fighting for its life! I like the shadow from the phone pole touching it from the left side, it helps to draw attention to it. The red building behind the phone box drives me a little nuts because it does help draw the eye to the phone box but then the colour detracts from it. Argh! :-)

Overall a very interesting shot, the kind of thing that may eventually grow on the dpc crowd in time. In the meantime continue to shoot and enter what you like.

Feel free to PM me,

Susan

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Interesting shot of a shutter, which we are all familiar with. I *got* what you're trying to do here as I've done similar work, and gave you a 7 for the effort.

However, the blue/orange lines of chromatic aberration are caused by the light and possibly the lens you used, too, detracts from what should be clean, sharp lines. It looks like you were set up too close, within the camera's minimum focusing distance. That and the angle makes for a tough way to get a clean shot, esp a macro of the subject. Generally you have to ensure that both your lens and subject are on precisely the same plane. Try to take what you're learned and reshoot, it never hurts to see what will give you the results you like but from a different angle.

Feel free to PM me,

Susan

I like the detail in the foreground, but this is the focal point. I think it would have been better if you made the sunrise the focal point.
