A lot of construction takes place downtown and taking a walk I saw this huge crane with the leading lines pointing to the sky. It was perfect for this challenge. Looking at the guidelines pointing to the sky, I imagined myself in space aboard the space station

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that meets the challenge well.

I have mixed feelings about this Marcel, on the one hand I like that you have thought about creating a more unique composition but I’m not sure it is working as you would like, I say that because the choice of left frame for the ‘base’ leaves it feeling as though it is toppling over and on its way down. The other issue is that these lines are all very strong in themselves, they do not lead in the traditional scene leading sense to a part of the image that you desire to be led into, the choice of subject is totally dominant it is the subject per se.

Strong lines, simple composition and a compelling background.

I feel that this photo misses out on the leading lines but is a nice picture
