Greetings from the Critique Club

Composition - You could've used this photo for any number of recent challenges, yellow and perspective come to mind right away. The sky looks a gorgeous blue color... too much so even. The sky is pixelating probably from oversaturation. The subject has very good colors and is a pretty good candidate for a rhythm shot. The building this is attached to provides a good distraction for this pic. Unfortunately we aren't looking for "good" distractions and actually is a bit of an eyesore. I am sure it HAS to be there to hold the tower up. The tower would've been great if it could've been standing there on its own. It does have some great colors and is well worth taking pics of.

Technical - Nice clear shot! Very well taken. Good exposure and DOF. The big hangup in the processing area is the pixelating sky. The rest of the colors seem like they are ok. The angles of this shot are quite puzzling with neither of the structures being vertical nor horizontal on their axes. I'm not saying that's bad, but perhaps a bit "curious" instead.

Overall - A pretty nice shot with very nice color (except for the sky). Very well taken picture with some abstract angles. I think it meets the challenge pretty well. Nice pic, good luck in upcoming challenges - Bob

very nice color in this shot... it appears that the sky may be a little oversaturated... there is some noise appearing in the blue... - setzler

Great colors. I think I would have liked this better cropped a little closer on the left.

Nice use of colour and contrast with the perfect blue sky. A new take on the rainbow in the sky??

It's a fun, very colorful shot. Nice & crisp! I like the fact that none of the paint is blue -- the only area of the shot that has blue is the sky. That makes it even more interesting as far as I'm concerned!

My favorite this week. I would have prefered a tighter shot looking straight up of the stair and totally do with out the building. The angle thte the building is at make the image look a little off balance. Still this is my winner for the week. Thanks for sharing it... Dave

Fantastic colour saturation, I wonder if using portrait style would have suited this more.

The white wall on the left side of the pix really distracts from the rhythm of this one.A tighter crop would have isolated the color rings emphasizing--rhythm.
