Greetings from the Critique Club

What an interesting idea for the Square Crop Challenge; Circles within a Square.

While the idea was a really good one, I'm afraid you had a little problem with execution. First, as your commentors mentioned, your image should be square. That is, all the pixels on all sides should be "640" or some other equal number. Because voters didn't think you met the Challenge, this doomed your image at the start. Then, it's important to have at least some of your image very, very sharp. This gives the viewer's eye a place to rest. If he doesn't have this place, he just keeps going on to the next image, never taking the time to enjoy the idea you have presented.

Finally, when you request a comment from the Critique Club, it is important to include your camera settings, and also write something about your thoughts in the Photographer's COmments section. This helps us understand what you were going for, and in addition, helps you to understand your camera.

I wish you good luck in your future DPC entries.

640 by 559 is NOT square, sorry, but will not vote on it

This is not a square crop

Interesting subject for the square crop

This looks like the Sea Of Holes scene from The Yellow Submarine!

This doesn't look very focused, but the idea for the abstract is a good one. 6

Interesting photo, nice perspective and would have been really good for the abstract challenge. I think you might get eaten alive because this is not a square crop. 6

Interesting aspect, Rikki. ;-) It's an unusual subject for a photo, I guess.

Nice abstract. I feel that more DOF would make the image more appealing by bringing the pattern at the top of the frame more into focus.
