Greetings From The Critique Club!!

Initial Impact: .........................

Does It Meet the challenge? No I don't feel it fits the challenge very well. While the the shot does have some large pinkish colored banners in it. I don't feel the banners are enoughto carry the photo by thereself. I feel that to meet the challenge that the object in pink should be the part of the image that demands the veiwers attention.

Focus:The focus is very nice in this shot. I can make out the fine details on the most distant objects and the little pretty lights along the sides.

Color: The colors on this shot seem a little bland to me. There are no vibrant colors to entice the veiwer.

Lighting: The lighting in this situation have a what you have is what you get scenerio. There was nothing you could do about the lighting. Taking that into consideration I would have to say that you did prety good.

Composition. There are not ant good strong lines for the veiwers eyes to follow through the photo. I also feel that this would have done better if the banners were centered between the two escalators. I think I would also have cropped the bottom section off. The people on the bottom serve no purpose and seem to detract from the wonderfull archetecture.

Overall: this seems like a pretty standard photo. There is no center of intrest. What are you trying to show the weiwer. What was it about this shot that inspired you to take it? If it was the archetecture try shooting it with less distracing people around. If it was the people try zooming in on just a small group of people. If it was the banners Like I suspect it was then I would have concentrated more on the banners and less on the remainder of the area. Perhaps using a DOF to blur them out a bit leaving only the banners crisp and just hinting at the world around them. This shot had alot of potential but lacked direction. I hope that I don't sound like I am bashing your photo. I just feel that honest is the best tool we have for learning. If it is of any consulation I gave It a 5 during that challenge. I found it to be just average. good luck in future challenges.
