Very cool looking sign (or what remains) that has weathered quite a few years. Just stumbled across it while taking some pictures in Tallahassee. I had some other pictures in mind for this challenge which didn't work out. Luckily, i found this beauty!

Hello from the Critique Club!
Hi Budweezer!

HRMMMMM this looks very very familliar, lol.. Did you return to the same place to take the picture? lol, that's funny.

Well, what can I say? I like this picture, definitely. It fits the challenge nicely. The biggest compliment I can give you is that I can't really think of anything you can do better! You can't go wrong here with a sky shot, with such lovely blue. I'm not sure about the main subject though, it looks a bit old and rusty. Maybe that's why your score was just under 6. I'd have given you a ten if I had been voting in this challenge!
I think what did get you was a bit of compression, that's it.
Well done!
good luck in the rest of the challenges.

I'm sure its been said before, but this would have made a great "pi" entry. :)

I think a plain blue sky without the clouds would look better and enhance the abstract look of the photo. Also it seems that it's not perfectly symmetric, a step to the right could have helped. Otherwise a good photo.

this would be perfect for PI!!! Love the texture on the metal & rust and the wonderful background.

Great shot, too bad you can't use it for the Pi shot this week too :) Score 9 - Corey

And you could have entered this in the Pi challenge! Nice subject and the contrast with the blue sky is great.

At first glance this looks like a shrine. Colour seems pushed perhaps a tiny bit too far. Interesting view, though. 8 - floyd

Good details, composition and subject.

Great colours and texture - must be a nice camera or an excellent photographer. It feels a little lopsided but I love the composition otherwise, and the flaking paint is wonderful.

I'm sure I won't be the only one to suggest that you use the same subject for the "Pi" challenge this week!

awsome awsome awsome 10... I think though it should be "dead center" - it seems off to the right a tad

Should have save this one for the "Pi" challenge, huh? Too bad there was no way of knowing it was coming...Anyway, an 8 from me.
