Greetings from the Critique club!

Interesting idea. When I first saw this shot I thought that the letters were engraved in stone. This is probably due to the texture of the paper that is well captured. The upper part of the shot is quite bright and is quite distracting.

The subject is simple and for many viewers it would seem that there is little to hold their interest. I personally enjoyed the simplicity of this image however so I wouldn't put to much stock in either opinion.

I like the angle that was chose as it really creates a feeling of depth.

As for the challenge? XYZ are letters yes but each of those letters appear by themselves in the dictionary WITH definitions. That in my books (and Webster's) makes them words.

This composition is one that can make you sit and contemplate the many meanings the artist could be portraying in this photo. The lighting and contrast are good. The texture and angle of the letters add depth to the photograph.

Uhm..okay. Your photo doesn't hold my interest for long, but I do like the texture of the paper.

I like the textures of the paper and processing. And the fact that you chose the three letters no one would dare touch with a ten foot pole in this challenge.

Not really sure how to react to this; was expecting words, not letters, and I'm not finding the letters all that appealing.

I am struggling to find anything interesting in this photograph. Maybe the diagonal composition?
