Greetings from Andi via the Critique Club. Welcome back Aaron and congratulations on submitting to 50 challenges!

First Impression: Just as Enzo (your sole commenter) says, interesting subject. All the elements seem to work well together but for me there is something missing in order to give this that WOW factor that the voters want (especially in a free study). Its a decent shot and my mind wanders along the water chute wondering where the water might end up.

Composition:A strong composition that allows the water to flow into the water chute thingy.

Subject: Yup, its interesting, it must be a pretty strong pump as swimmers are advised to stay 75 feet away. The two small objects on the horizon are a bit of a distraction for me and as they don't really add to the image think you'd have been safe removing them. I like the pumps reflection and shadow in the water. The sky in amongst the wires seems odd to me, almost as is if a couple of sections have been edited but not all of them? The aged pumphouse looks like a great subject to photograph.

Technical: The exposure is ok but maybe a little flat, is the vignetting from post processing or from the lens at 10mm? Maybe a slightly different angle as the pump house is suffering from a ultra wide angle and looks lob sided and I keep getting drawn to the sky on the right side of the pump.

Final thoughts: Its a decent image (I gave it a 6) and considering it was submitted to a free study think it finished about right and its not a bad score.
