Greetings from the Critique Club!

I'm so happy I got this image to critique! The composition is amazing, and very well put together. Very very clever how you set up so you can read Leicester Square several times in the photo, and you have to strain to see the one little one in the right corner. So Clever.
The colour is superb too, so I wouldn't change anything about that.
The motion is very well done, and I think it makes your eyes read the letters right under the car, which are "Leicester Square"..
I think the only reason your score may have suffered a bit, was because there was no "specific square" element, other than the word "square." Personally, I didn't let that affect my scoring this photo, because it works so well out of the box.
Well done! I like your work, and I hope to see more in the future!

Good motion shot. I think you needed a little higher aperture to keep the die from getting blurry. Awesome color though. The reds are jumping off the page. Nice shot - Inspzil

Nice blur on that car, and a humorous concept. Yeah, it's not very deep, but it's funny. You know, your version of Monopoly is quite different from ours!

This is cute. Not sure how well it fits the theme, but you did a wonderful job. In a motion challenge it would get a better score from me but right not I give it a 5.

Neat shot and idea. More file size would have sharpened it some. It must have taken forever to get this right. Color is super and so it the shot.

Neat use of the motion effect. You can just make out the thread, but I reckon you can claim it's exhaust fumes.Good composition though maybe slightly overlit - would have liked to see more shadows/colour variance.

Now that is cool. My Monopoly pieces don't have wheels! :-(

The motion blur is fabulous , but when I first look a the photo I don't think "squares"

very nice effect. I like this one a lot. The long exposure is right on and the blurring is great.

This is a great idea and I thought of doing something similar for my photo. I just couldn't find an English monopoly board anywhere here in Germany. I am surprised you are the only other person who came up with this idea. Anyway I loev the photo. The blur on the car really gives it that extra touch. Nice crisp colors and great composition. I gave you a 9.

Interesting blur effect. I think a bit tigher of a crop would be more effective. jgillard7

What is that a British version of Monopoly? Looks like "Marvin Gardens". But the exposure is excellent and the car motion is great!
