This is a picture of a Robinson Helicopter, The day was not a good one as it was well clouded, which in one way may have helped with this shot. I have sharpened this shot and just slightly tweaked the hue of the entire shot as it was a red helicopter.

Greetings from Andi via the Critique Club

First Impression: Yup, thats certainly pink! Nice and bright compared to the bland background. I thought you'd used selective desat but reading your notes understand it was taken on a bad day.

Composition: Subject fills the frame nicely, might have been even better if you had included all of the 'exit' sign top right (quite comical).

Subject: Like one of your commenters I was thinking Barby Doll Helicopter, fits the challenge well for me, maybe not the most interesting subject out there but plenty to look at and love finding the houses/offices and rails in the reflections.

Technical: I like the exposure though maybe a small boost in contrast would have helped as would a light run in neatimage as there is a fair amount of noise at the base of the helicopter.

Final thoughts:Fits the challenge well and whilst not exactly a WOW image it does hit the spot and feel a 5.1 is a low score. Though, saying that I noticed its bang on the average so a low scoring challenge.
