Greetings from the Critique Club

This is an intriguing and beautiful sculpture - I've seen it in many challenge entries in many different lights and angles. This is the first time I've seen it from this angle, though. You've captured a pleasing repetition of the sculpture's upward curves in the faint traces of clouds in the sky. The warmth and angle of the setting sun give a nice glow to the work, which is nicely seen in the reflections.

Post processing is simple and subtle, and in my opinion effective and not overdone. This is a nice quiet study of shape and light.

Like the symmetry, even the sky helped out, nice picture.

I wish this were more centered, or Iguess I wish you spent more timeediting this. This has some great potential

love the use of the wide angle here in capturing a perfectly moody sky

if it was just centered or moved to the rule of thirds still really has a lot going for it

An oft seen image at DPC. Beyond cliche, almost.

There's a collection of good elements here, the symetrical building, sweeping landscape, impressive sky, working nicely together.

Nice colors.
