Greetings from the Critique Club,

Your landscape photograph is a very nice composition. I especially like how you've framed the left and right edges with trees -- this works very well, and reinforces your "Landscape became Cityscape" idea.

You've captured the sky color very well, good exposure and focus. A minor point (that will bother some of the DPC voters more than others) is your misspelling in the title (lanscape vs landscape).

Some of the comments below mention that the composition seems a bit crowded. I agree somewhat with this, but also realize that most cities look crowded. It might be interesting to try a wide-angle lens, and moving further away might open up other compositional ideas that work. This is a creative photograph for this challenge -- great idea to capture a landscape photo within the city!

Did you take this with a wide angle lens? Your buildings are strangely tilting inward. That sometimes happens with wide angle lenses. Not much landscape, but i understand your point. The sky is a nice color. The photo doesn't make me jump out of my seat with excitement, however it is very nicely done. Good focus and clarity, nice color, and the framing/cropping are alright as well. it's nice how you have the trees framing the edges of the photo. Good luck in the challenge.

Looking at those buildings I'd say it became cityscape a long time ago (100 years or more), but I still like the photo. It has an interesting mix of building types and colours and is nicely framed by the two trees. Good work

I like the contrast of the little old houses and the shiny new big buildings, but it's a bit cramped. Not too crazy about trees on either side as well - cropping out the fir tree on the left side would have helped anyway.

I like the variety of buildings in your cityscape, it's almost like a historical review with the old church and the brig house, the older and the new office building. Also the trees frame the picture well. They are of course needed to make it fit to the title of your submission. Sky fits well too.
My major concern with this image is that it is very tight, i.e. all elements are so close together and fill the whole picture that there is no space. IMO space is an important element in landscape pictures. A wide-angle shot or a shot from the distance would have probably reduced this issue. Colors could be stronger too (or maybe B&W?!).

Good eye to capture the colors in the building against the blue sky. Nice shot!
