Hello from the Critique Club!

Hi a_berenguer, I hope I find you in good health :)

This is an interesting shot, and definitely fits into the challenge well. I like the green tinge, personally.

I think you may have tried to over sharpen the image, because it seems like the metal is a bit hard to look at. I think I would suggest trying this same picture with a different aperture, something more in the middle range to get better light in.

There is a bit of distraction with the way you placed the picture, and the composition. I think had you stood a bit more to the left, and cut out the top left corner of the copier, it would have worked more harmoniously.

All in all, I think the idea was there, but the execution could have been a tiny bit better :)
Good luck in future challenges,

Intriguing light. It's fun to see a unique light source being used! The composition works for me, too. The stapler doesn't seem very sharply focused, though, and this detracts a tad from this lovely and inventive idea.

This really does nothing for me, I'm afraid. I think I'd rather have seen the copier in action with paper or something more unusual (coffee mug? a kitten? yes, I'm weird) on top of it... eh.

I think the green hue really distracts in this shot. I understand that the stapler is sitting on an open copier, but why? The two things really don't seem to go together.

A different shot. A little blurry
