I was intrigued by the even unevenness as well as the coloring of this rooftop lawn. Not exactly the classic lawn but more of a humorous interpretation.

Hello from the critique club...

I think someone needs to mow their roof....lol I definitely like the idea of this shot. I do think it is a little oversaturated and a bit grainy. Also I would have brought the crop in a bit tighter on the right...eliminating that small triangle. I think that draws the eye too much. I do like the contrast between the sky and the roof. Definitely adds to the shot. Happy shooting.

What I like:
- The sheer number of lines and angles makes for an interesting shot
- I like the gradient from bright sky to dingy soffit
- It is an interesting take on the subject.
- I generally just like dystopic/ desolate pictures.

What I don't like:
- The colors. Yes the orange contrasts highly with blue, and that can make for a an eye catching photo or an unsettling mood- which would go well with the overall feel of this shot. But I feel like in this photo, the contrast between the blue and orange is too much and strains the eyes. Making it hard to look for a long time.
- It grainy.

Overall: Great idea, fair execution
