I liked this scene. It has a post apocalyptic feel to it. This is a HDR done and merged, with some sharpening done to it.

** Greetings from the Critique Club **

Overall, I was impressed with this shot, it really stands out, mostly because of the processing. Although it placed low in the challenge itself, in of itself, it is a decent photograph.

The composition is well thought out. The three is composed in the right and top thirds and helps to frame the power plant. The green grass, brown weeds, and horizon are also well placed. I like the sky composes 1/2 of the top and the bottom half is split in half again. This does a great job of framing the power plant. But, here is where the composition has a flaw. It frames the power plant, not the chair. In terms of the challenge goal, the chair has gotten a little lost. I think as a free study, this shot works well, and I urge you to enter it (a similar one) in a free study to see how it scores.

Perhaps if the chair was placed closer, or used somehow in the frame, this would have scored higher.

Still, this is an excellent photograph.

The processing really works here, it is not over done and adds a distinct 3 dimensional feel to it. The choice to shoot this on an overcast day was a good one. Although shadows are gone, the recovery from the processing adds some great texture.

Fullwitted whimsy. Much visual delight.

This is fabulous! Feels like too much Topaz for my taste, but absolutely love how you composed this. Good lines and shapes, and use of DOF to show them off.

What a backdrop and setting. I think a lower angle (not much more - jst to be placed more against the Brown/white field) would have helped a bit to bring this chair more into view. Processing works fro this shot
