The first thing I noticed about this shot was the beautiful deep, rich colors you have captured. It appears to be early morning, or dusk, but that could just be the "darkness," of the photo. I think if you could have done just one of a couple of things and made it a little lighter, so that more of the details would have "shown" through. a) bump ISO to 100. May add a touch of grain, but I don't know that it would have been noticeable. b) One or two stops lower on the aperture c) a notch or two slower on the shutter speed.

The composition is good in that the chute helps to "anchor" the shot and give the picture a feeling of stability without seeming stagnant. I do find myself wanting to see over it and into the horizon more. I don't know if it would have been possible to have a higher perspective, but that may have added to the shot, if you could have.

Good work, and I hope to see more in future challenges. If you have questions, comments, etc. please feel free to PM me. Best to you.

I had the feeling this looked pretty New Zealandish :-)

Nice composition and I like the nicely saturated colors, but think the image could use more exposure.

Interesting subject matter. Would have been really great if the loading ramp was actually in use! Unfortunately this shot seems underexposed and I'm not sure that the white border does anything for the photo.

Typical and common sight in some areas....... refreshes the memory of travel to western States and beef country. I like the darkness...... beautiful rich colour at dusk or dawn? A simple thing made monumental. Good work.
