Greetings from the Critique Club
By Inspzil

Composition - I don't know if the aspect ratio of a photo qualifies as part of the composition, but I don't like these extra long aspect ratios. It just doesn't work for me. The redness of the tape measure is pretty muted and just looks a little red. I think with this title, the tape would have to be really red to be effective. This looks a lot like a plain old tape measure to me. I think a more stunning color would yield a more visually impacting photo.

Technical - Nothing wrong with the way this was taken. I would suggest a little less light but that's just me. The focus and DOF is good. THe framing, for this type of photo works.

Overall - Not a badly taken photo but it could've used a little more pizzazz and even some more color. I think the composition is the main problem with this photo as it is lacking visual impact. i.e. its not terribly interesting. Good luck with your future photos and challenges - Inspzil

yes white is all colors together, but is really more neutral than anything.. so for me color is not the dominant subject of the photo

Not the most colourful subject for a colour challenge but it is still colour i surpose. The title saves it a bit with the double meaning. Different. 7

Red on white is always a good bet, and you have done it well.

Lovely composition and the gradient minty green background adds to the effect. Very nice.
