Greetings from the Critique Club.

First impressions are "wow - what a chair"!

Technically this is ok, there's not much to fault it on other than it being a bit flat.

Artistically it's good, the person a good touch to give us a sense of scale and not have us think it's a model or diorama. POV is not the best but I doubt you had a ladder tall enough to do much about that :)

In summary it's a quirky shot that meets the challenge and has an initial "wow" but after that we are left with a feeling of "it's just a big chair". It's a shame the sky wasn't cooperating with you that day.

Feel free to PM me if you have any queries.

This would be great in the perspective challenge. The tones look a bit flat but overall I like this. 6
