Greetings from the Critique Club

Technically this is a good shot, not blown out anywhere etc. The composition is also good, and if it was a different challenge topic, I am certain it would have received higher scores. However, I believe there is only really a tenuous relationship between the photo and the challenge topic. Yes, it does have furniture in it, but is the furniture the main subject of the image, well, I don't really think so. Seems a bit of a shoehorn entry and I can't help feeling this is why you received a sub five score.

As I said, I think if you had this in a different challenge, then it may have scored better.

The chairs and table disappear into the detailed wall - the eye has to search around to find the subject instead of being immediately attracted to it. Given it's rather bland color obscured positioning the subject fails to attract an interest.
