Greetings from the Critique Club!

What a wonderful shot! I didn't get a chance to vote in this challenge but if I had this would have gotten an 8 from me, at least. The image does convey a great sense of retired and the wear and weathered look on the wagon and the wheel is very nicely detailed. I played with the cropping a little bit (putting paper on the screen to try different looks) and a slightly tighter crop on the right really brought the wheel out more and maybe a slightly bigger crop on the left so the one spoke on the upper left is complete? The lighting is very nice, natural but not overly bright, again lending to the feeling of relaxed and retired. A touch more contrast might help just a bit but other than that this is a great pictures!

Good Luck In Future Challenges!

I like this one. I'm glad you didn't use b&w or sepia. the red on the wagon at top is great.

i appreciate the framing, but the subject is just too common....or obvious, i should say.

Great subject and nice composition, but it seems overexposed and the colors seem bland. I think a little playing with the levels in PS would bring the colors out, or go the other direction and try it in B&W or sepia.
