Hey there from the Critique Club

First of all, congrats on the new personal best. Very well done.

My thoughts on the image: This was one of my favorites during voting for this particular challenge. The wide angle, deep depth of field, and point of view are all spectacular. Your cloud cover and bright sunshine adds a wonderfully dramatic feel to the image as well.

My ideas for improvement: I may have adjusted the crop just a little tighter on the left hand side, but that would have been one of the only things I could even imaging changing.

Where I would have/did score this entry: I did vote on this challenge, and...no surprise now...I was one of the 12 voters that believed that nothing needed changing or adjusting with this particular capture. This is a beautiful capture and a well-deserved finish. Congrats.

Thank you for the opportunity to provide a critique on your entry,
Eric

what I find particularly special about this image is that it almost looks as if the clouds themselves are decaying. This is a great photo. My favorite of the challenge.

Congratulations. It's a great shot, and there's something very poignant about those strings of washing hung up there amongst the decay.

This reminds me so much of Korea.. it's a beautifully captured social comment.. also, the composition, light and use of the wide lense is flawlwess.

Beautiful, in a sad way.

Amazing how you've managed to capture such ugly subject matter so beautifully. Details and composition are wonderful, as are the colours. I really love the cloudscape, and that you've managed to capture "urban decay" without graffiti featuring as a significant item (seems rare in this challenge). Great image overall, and I reckon this should finish in the top 10.

Love the sky! did you try a black and white conversion?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

One of my two top picks for this challenge. You did well to include so much of that rather dull foreground, it adds
to the emotion of the shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2009 03:38:46 PM
I think you have succeeded wonderfully in depicting the decay that goes un-photographed by typical landscape photographers. It adds so much meaning that it is shot in the traditional landscape mood and with great landscape techniques. One cannot avoid the message.

I wish the buildings were a little closer to view properly, otherwise I'm mainly stuck looking at the foreground. The blacks in the clouds on the right are a little weird for me when compared to the left side. No vote, I'm in this one.

Fabulous scene! Great discovery! LOVE the PP.....9

Wow, this hits the mark. Great perspective, nice use of wide angle, nice sweep of the block. My personal opinion, the sky looks great but for me it doesn't "fit" with the image of urban decay.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2009 12:22:04 AM
this is a real winner for me. great sky, use of wide angle, and perfect image for challenge 9
