Not the greatest image, but I'm happy with how it turned out.

Great job! The colors do seem to be a bit washed out, needing some processing to saturate it a bit more. Just a bit. I also think that I'd remove the people, and just leave the umbrellas, but that's for advanced editing. The horizon doesn't seem to be very straight in this either, tipping a bit to the right. I do like the shot, and you met the challenge's theme perfectly. I just can't score it as highly as I'd like.

a little bit on the gray or muddy side. i guess because it was overcast. the subject matter, to me, calls for brighter light. seems sad and dreary. maybe a different title would have changed the comment.

Very good composition. I think it is a bit flat. Did you try photoshop levels, curves, and hue/saturation? Would make this an excellent photo. 6

Contrast low and the horizon not level. The subject does not stand out enough. I wish you well in the challenge.

Great shot but a little bump in color saturation would have really made this pop

Great line-up, wish this was brighter.

interesting composition. 5 umbrellas amybe could have increased the saturation to intensify the colors, Dont you hate the trashcans?

Soft. Sweet, but soft. And you tilted the horizon . . .

Would it be possible to brighten this up just a bit?

perhaps a little bump in contrast may of helped?

Shame you didn't fix the dull colours. This could have been so good.

I like the toned down colors in this shot.... evokes an old fashioned photo.
