Greetings from the Critique Club :)

Hi JJ...

Your composition and symmetry on this photo are both fine... no problems... the subtle color and toning of this photo also work very nicely. I don't really know how to comment effectively on this photo. I suppose that, subjectively, the photo doesn't intrigue or inspire me. It's a perfectly executed shot, but I can't get excited about what I see. Based on the final score of this image, I would believe that this may be the primary problem.

I really enjoy viewing your photos... Keep up the great work :)

i saw the symmetry but just didn't find the picture very compelling (which is just a way of me saying i can't tell you why i didn't like it). did you consider submitting it in b&W? i just took a look at it that way and thought that it captured your lighting much better, and it removes the distraction of the brown floor tiles by turning them into a complimentary dark/light pattern to the side.

Lovely light and an interesting subject for the shot. Would be interested to know why you chose this. 8 - floyd

the angle and the flooring don't fit the symmetry...

Fabulous job taking ordinary items and making an extraordinary shot! Your desaturated colors and subdued tones work very well in creating a feeling with this shot.

A shame about the burn-out on the far container - looking at the diffusion of the shadows I'd guess this was natural light, so tricky to deal with I suppose. The only poor element though.

Yeah, your a better photographer than me. I'm just a little dabbler compared to you. Lighting is brilliant. You have a great eye. Great work!
