Cool picture! I like the due tones, brings up child hood memorys ;)

Nice depiction of the space, well lit. I like the gritty texture and the range of grays. I find the windows in the back distracting tho, and also the edge of the counter . Perhaps a little rearranging would make a more powerful image?

Awesome. You capture the working-class kitchen of the 60s here. Go in a little closer--don't be afraid to take a new angle or zoom in on a particularly interesting feature. The best stories involve specific details rather than a huge generalization. Such is true for the best photography. There's plenty of time in life to tackle all the objects pictured here; your job is to convince me that they all belong there together. If not, zoom in--get more specific.

Excellent. Nice shot in all ways,

There are some interesting objects but nothing stands out as THE subject. It's become somewhat crowded with no focal point. Lots of potential here though.

Very well done. The corner of the counter in the bottom right is a little distracting, but not bad. I like the choice of subject and color tone.

Beautiful lighting and masterful exposure. Just the right amount of contrast. Great textures. My only dislike are the burnt out highlights caused by the windows. I'd like to have seen a very similar shot without the windows. 7

Nice composition and the sepia (I think) is a nice touch.
