Hello, and greetings from the Critique Club. I am your critiquer today, and I think I'm in over my head. LOL.

Initial Thoughts

Seriously, my initial thought was "woah!" and it even came out vocally as such. Some seriously fine subtle color work here.

Composition / Content

I have nothing to offer on this subject, as this is a very tried and true compositional photo on this site, and many others. I can't even explain why the offset circle is stronger than a centered one would be.. but I certainly *feel* it. Leading lines and all that. Your content is just wonderful as well. The colors just really blend, giving it an almost hypnotic appearance. This is one case where it proves that you should always be looking as a photographer.. up, down, left, right, all around you.

Background

Since it's not a *background* per se, it's hard to comment, but what looks like clouds and sky through the circular opening is simply icing on the cake. Brilliant without being tacky, and with a wonderful textural element.

Camera Work / Technical

Again, I feel like just and admirer instead of a critiquer, but I honestly can't find much wrong with anything here. Exposure, DOF, Framing.. everything is pretty darn fine.

Digital Processing

You didn't include any details on this, so I can't really comment, but whatever you did certainly didn't hurt anything.

Fits the Challenge

Finally, something I can critique a little bit.. Dynamic Lines, while being a D&L technically.. aren't really a D *and* L, if you get my meaning. I think people might have been looking for a dual-mode photo in a way. I can't be certain, but it might be one of two weaker links that dropped this score out of the 7 range.

[b]My Opinion of the Photo[/b}

Stunning, it truly is. However, it's also been seen before, and while that doesn't always apply to lower scores in challenges (many examples of "seen before" actually increasing scores), I think that maybe that aspect also contributed to a slightly lower scoring. Also, the fact that it's more "abstract" in design also probably wasn't a help.

Still, I love this shot. The muted, complementary color scheme is simply fantastic. It's like a Southwest color scheme meets avante garde architecure. A great find, and a great shot all-round.

Good luck in future challenges.

Cool architecture, great reflections, lines, and excellent composition. Nicely exposed as well. Great stuff.

Good take on the challenge. might be my monitor but the skylight appears oblong, not circular.

I would like this better if there were some reference point which allowed me to get a sense of scale.

sweet photo! Good job!

One of my picks for the top ten. Tremendous composition, maybe just needs the 'eye' to be a little more to the left. Good luck

I like this one.

I like the spiraling angle and the fact that the middle circle is off centered. The coloring seems a little...odd, but cool shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2005 04:22:15 PM
Ya, this works nicely as an abstract. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice shot, but I find the roof tiles to the right to be distracting. Cropping them out might benefit the pic IMHO.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2005 10:04:10 AM
nice shot but it looks very grainy and the darks are a little too dark
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice leading line of the architecture. The browns and blues are a nice compliment to each other. I like the added reflective quality here and there.

Cool shot. I can't tell if you are looking down at a pool of water or up at the sky.

Deliciously Linear!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2005 09:30:38 AM
Like it, but maybe a different title, like "Dynamic and Linear" Just a thought. Love the lines though and the lighting.
