I did a retake of this shed (originally called desolation)
I was really interested by the way the rising sun changed the scene. I thought it was very cool. This is a simple image but it is rich with composition. The colours, the curves, the contrast, the lines, the rule of thirds... Hey it's my free study :)

Hope this does well, I really like the shot

This was way underated IMO, the simplicity is so absorbing. For me, the highlights|shadows make the shot, I think clouds would add something this image just doesn't need. Be proud......

Greetings from the Critique Club.

Hi Cole,

Congrates on a superb take. I'm personally find the score low, but there you go. What absolutely makes this image for me is the golden light and shadows raking across the fields - beautiful. The shed gived a nice focal point, but isn't really what the shot is about.

So I ask myself what is there not to like? Not a lot really. Perhaps you've hedged your bets a bit with the sky - either more or less. I think a centimeter crop off the bottom and left would have helped, but thats just my opinion. I disagree with the comment below about this needing clouds; I think that would have detracted from the overall starkness.

It is my hope that these insights are helpful and constructive. Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions regarding this critique. And please remember to mark it "Helpful" if you found it so. Good luck with future challenges.

So clean and simple. I like the negative space and the color gradients. Lovely golden tones. Back to bump you up to 9.
