Hey there from the Critique Club

Camera Work/Technical: I like the tilt you chose here, and your focus is spot on. The white balance you chose yielded some very nice coloring and tones.

Lighting: The lighting looks a bit flat and uneven. A slight curves adjustment would have helped a great deal. There seems to be more light at the top of the frame than at the bottom. This is probably based more on the colors in the building than actual lighting.

Composition/Content: Your composition is this image's greatest strength. The angle paired with the repeating patterns provide the eye with lots to look at, thus keeping it flowing throughout the image.

My Opinion: This is a fine image that met the challenge very well. With slightly altered lighting or a crop that lost the bottom of the frame, I think you'd have jumped into the 6 range.

You have acheived a bizzare glowing quality here that contrasts interestingly with the solidity of the building and the composition. I like the pastel colors too - they add to the soft texture.

This is a great shot! The softness of the columns vs. the sharpness of the windows really lends contrast, as does the mix of colors. I hope to see this on the homepage in a week! 10

I like the coloring on this. The angle gives it some intersting perspective, but I'm not sure I care that much for it.
