This is from my recent trip to Eastern State Penitentiary. This is an amazingsite for photography with many things to shoot. I was keeping \'Thirds\' in mind when I was shooting, but nothing really stood out except this. I have another that I wanted to use, but the subject (a lonely hanger casting a shadow on the wall) wasn\'t in focus. Gr...

*Greeting from Critique Club*

Hi, I think that this image match the contest. the composition follow the thirds rule. I haven't a great feeling with this image because there are some reflection perhaps obliged on the leaf with loss of the detail.
On some stones I see the whites burned and a small definition.
Some unusual colours of the background leave to think me to a saturation excess.
Good luck in the next contest.
Best Regards

I actually enjoy the light neutral tones more than the greens. I would suggest toning down the greens. Normally my opinion doesn't count for much, but I am part of the core audience for shots like this. :)

I really like the contrast of the green against the bland greys. I love the lines the stones make and the vine growing on it.

Nice shot. I love stone walls, and the leaves stand out beautifully.
