Greetings from the Critique Club:

Impressions: I like the concept, and the shot of the tires with great DOF works well. I particularly like that we get a closeup of a tire in the foreground which looks like it has pretty uneven tire wear.

Improvements: Looks like your camera failed you a bit, as there appears to be purple fringing around the trees. The sky itself seems a bit odd in color as well. Compositionally, it might have been better to use a vertical division into thirds, e.g., two thirds tires, one third sky (or vice versa, but since the tires are the subject, I think two-thirds tires.

Hi, sky is performing well, interesting subject too. But for me the horizon is too much in the middle, violation of the rule of thirds. Otherwise nice picture.

Too dark on the wheels, the effect is almost lost on two flat zones: Up shine, down dark..

I would have liked to see more definition of the tires. Nice use of the sky as a backdrop.

pretty sky, but the subject matter, the tires, are badly under exposed and too dark. i am looking at a black hole here, and that is not interesting to me

Good effort on a tricky exposure between the bright sky and dark tires, showing detail in the treads. THe composition doesn't tickle my fancy
