This is lovely work. I wonder if a tad more contrast in the darker tones would make the colours a little richer?

sorry for lateness

I'm not sure what I think about this one. I think that if I can across it in the challenge I wouldn't have voted it terribly well, but looking at it now I'm beginning to like it a lot more.

The high contrast does play a role I believe, even if it put me off to start with - not sure how to describe it but it does gice a kind of lost, desolate, not-sure-whats-going-on-with-your-life feel to it, which I think is what you were aiming for

I still think the processing went a bit too far though, but it certainly made me think

Hmmm...I have to say that this one doesn't really do anything for me. At first I thought you suffered badly from JPEG compression, but I see that you used posterize so that effect was intentional. I'm personally not keen on posterize, but thats just me, I don't tend to like shots that look too heavily processed.

One thing that would really have helped would be if the boat was more obviously a boat - even with the title I'm struggling to figure it out. Also, the composition is very centralized, which makes it much more static

This is a beautiful shot, and should have done better I think. The only problem is that the bokeh seems rather arbitrary (and scarce), rather than an integral part that enhances the photo.
However, outside of the challenge topic, I love the colours and the focus/DOF is perfect. Whilst the crop is quite tight, this works quite well I believe.

I agree with others that in order to meet the challenge more you needed a wider pov to include more bokeh.

I think this could work really well with the challenge, but looks a bit like a kid's toy, just made out of one piece of plastic, and in this way may have worked better if you made the set yourself.
I think it needed a little more sharpness, and perhaps a slight wider angle - not sure tbh as it doesnt really "grab" me, and even after looking at your original& perspective, I'm still not entirely sure what I'm looking at. Sorry! (As a kinda excuse, I've only ever seen monster truck rallies on the Simpsons! :P)

Sorry to be so late with crits

I think you've shown some "photographers eye" in spotting this opportunity, but not fulfilled its potential. I didn't vote in this challenge but would probably voted a 4 - there's not enough going on to keep my interest, especially with the softness. Also, I'm not a fan of the uneven lighting.

One suggestion for editing (I can't try right now as I don't have PS on this computer) would be to boost the contrast and add some colour to accentuate the pattern you found - not sure if this would work well, just a thought.

Whilst there doesn't seem anything "wrong" with this, it doesn't seem to have much punch imho. Theres an awful lot of grey, and I'm not 100% convinced about the focus, although that may be just because of looking through the glass.
I think it would have been a lot stronger with a touch of colour, because the composition does have a nice zen feel to it, and definitely has potential

Hey, I added this to my favourites straight away even though I didn't have time to comment. This is my favourite of your entries so far, even if not the highest scoring. ITs a beautiful abstract, I love the rich colours and the clarity/sharpness of the patterns in a kinda cubistey way, rather than everything being completely blurred.

Not sure what I could suggest to improve it... possibly (although I know its partly trial and error) it may have been better with more of the yellow bit, which gives it more of an eye/seashell shape rather than the more circular shape.

Definitely underrated, but you can pretty much expect that for an abstract here. You should be very pleased with it nonetheless

I like the clean simple composition, and the added interest of the triangle of reflections, which seems to combine the city life with the clinical, ordered, cold architecture. I'm not sure why, but I would like a clockwise rotation about 5deg, it just seems a little wonky as is.

I think I'd like it if there was a little more contrast between the colour of the sky, and the colours on the buildings - not sure if this would be possible, maybe with some curves adjustments or something..

I love the toning with the red sign, not too saturated...subtle reference to the "no skateboarding".

I know this wouldn't really be possible with the panning, but I wish the sign was sharper so the "one way" was more obvious.

The exposure seems spot on, and along with the toning gives it a very photojournalistic feel.

I think overall the photo "deserved" better, but I'm not really surprised of its score given the DPC audience
