**** Greeting from the Critique Club ****

The first thing that is noticable is that the focus is sharp on the left and soft on the right.

- Relevant to the Challenge? Yes
- Is subject unique (vs. unoriginal or rehashed)? Yes

- Good or Bad? How can it be fixed? Since this image is an abstract the composition is entirely subjective -- left to the viewer. I like it.
- Good use of Depth of Field? I would prefer to have the entire image in focus at about the same level as the 8th stem from the right. The ones to the right are too soft and the one to the left are too sharp. In such a short space this is visually uncomfortable.

- Good use of light? Yes. Nice use of shadows. While not blowing out any highlights.

Aesthetics/Artistic Appeal:
- Colors and Contrast The colors are a bit dull, but the contrast is excellent with the light browns against the black background.
- What is my reaction or feelings? Overall, I know that it's a fan and would like to see more of it. The fan has a shape, but this closeup is not the shape one would normally associate with it. It's an unique view (always a good thing), but it doesn't thrill me. I do like it though.
