This is the kind of picture that makes me want to visit such a place. With the colors in this, I want to know what is going on inside. I really like the angle you shot this at as well.

Critique Club:

Hi Kelly. Congratulations on an excellent image. 21st place from 295 entries is something to be proud of. This is a good find and subject for the challenge, you got very lucky here. The colors are amazing. I was wondering what it was, I though maybe a motel or something. I would never have guessed a cinema.

The reflections off the glass give your pic that extra impact, added to the vivid colors in the windows. I tried to find your reflection in the window but couldn't :-) The focus is bang on bringing out the detail much more.

What bothers me a little is the sky up the top right, it is a little too bright in comparison to the rest of the pic. I get the feeling this is an evening shot but the sky is contradicting that feeling. As was already mentioned in one of the comments below I would have waited a little longer until it was later to get a darker sky in. Also the colors would have been highlighted even more.

Also going from a dark photo to a completely white border distracts a little, I would have prefered to have seen either no border at all, or else a darker one.

All in all a very good image and after looking at your past results your best so far. Well done.

Although I didn't get a chance to comment, this was one of my favourites this week. I thought it would do better. The composition is fantastic...I wanted to know what was going on inside! Well done.

Awesome place full of colors. Technically it could be les soft, but still, due to the choice of the topic it's one of my few favorits this week.

Now that's a lot of windows in color. Very nice shot. Good colors, good lighting, good focus, nice reflections off the glass, actually nice rich vibrant colors that you have showing. . .

Is this a building, the thumbnail looked like the grill of a car to me. This is very pretty.

That's really cool!

Love the variety of color in the windows. All colors seem to go well with each other. Very very nice.
04/08/2003 02:22:37 AM
Very original. Maybe you could have tried to take the picture when it was darker out, so the colors would stand out more.

This is a really neat, unique shot.

Interesting photo. I think I would have liked your frame with a black line between the photo and the frame. Also, might have cropped out the reflection of the trees on the right. Meets the challenge very well. Good luck. 6
