I did not vote, but probably would have given a 5. All the crazy lines and curves makes for a nice composition. The processing with all the muted tones is a distraction to me. I might have framed it differently as the building and tree on the edges of the frame are awkward.

I think the HDR works here. If its not, you got some wild a$$ clouds where you live. But I think that enhances the scene - its not overused and its applied well. The tree kind of stops me from entering the image - its like a big road block, but what are you going to do? I like the balance of the round white dish with the rectangular 'white' roof - find it intriguing and it raises my interest in the image. 6

Well composed. I like the washed out colors; they add to the impact.

the sky and the partially desaturated colors provides a sense of despair
