I think this would have benefited from a narrower depth of field.

Hi from the Critique Club

Fit: Almost any picture will fit this challenge but the question is does the image benefit from the treatment. Your image fits but lets see if I think it benefits...

Composition: Composition is ok but there are areas for improvement. One of the "rules" (I say that in quotes because rules are never fixed in stone) is that horizon should be level. In this case it should. You have a nice sight line formed by the cars as they recede into the distance but the titled horizon competes for our attention as it slopes down to the right.

Technical: This image is one that is fitting for the selective desaturation. There are some aspects that mean that this has not been realised to the potential ot could have been. First, outside of the colour areas we have no intest. This means that while you have the cars in colour, that is all we see in the image to it almost feels as if nothing has been desaturatd. Secondly, the sky is blown out a bit. More detail in the sky would have aided the above point but also not given us that bright area at the top that we can't help but be drawn to. Do you shoot in RAW? If so then maybe it's time to think about HDR and Tone Mapping. Do you have photoshop CS2? If so then the Shadow/Hilights tool may have brought some detail out in the sky. I also wonder if this isn't overexposed a litte.

Feel: I didn't vote in this challenge but I do like this image. The subject is unique (that is getting harder and harder on DPC). The colours are vivid. The image has interest. It's just that once my eye has run along the line of cars I feel like there should be more but that is all there is. I think this would have easily passed a score of 6 if there was more detail outside of the cars.

PM me if you have any queries and good luck in future challenges.

Comment by Hawkeye:
Nice one. But why is one wind generator facing in the opposite direction to the others? This pic would have benefited by the use of a polariser. The sky and clouds look washed out IMHO.

Nice and crisp. Maybe a tad boring.

Comment by dtremain:
This would be more effective with a tighter crop - you could easily lose the empty brown foreground, and the dark left 1/3. This could also use something in the lighting department - your subject is a common, ordinary item, so it needs something to attract and hold your attention (curiosity?).

Comment by Melethia:
Has a surreal aspect to it, like it was shot on the moon. I hate that they've painted over all of them, in a way. I seem to recall seeing shots when they still looked like cars instead of multicolored alien invaders.
