Commenting as part of my Team Suck duties...

I reckon this subject had some wonderful potential. A tighter crop (remove much of the right) and a little tweaking of the HDR to reduce the blacks and halo in the clouds and this would have faired much better. I think this image as it is suffered b/c it fell between the pigeon holes of landscape and mechanical, and also b/c it feels a little over processed. I do like the subject, the details and the colours in the shot... I'd love to see some outtakes or this one reprocessed, as I think you could get a top 10 from it.

Interesting machine. The sky is a distraction. Overall, this image is oversaturated.

I like the strong colors, but otherwise this is not doing too much for me, I'm afraid. Maybe the rest of the image is overpowering the main subject and it just does not stand out. Not really certain though.

A little to much HDR here, Colors are off. But great subject and composition, the processing kinda ruins it for me though. Sorry. try not to over process.
