|Greetings from the Critique Club.
Hello Charles, I am Alan.
First, I love the double play with the challenge suggestion. Not only the obvious counting Machine counting, but the machine itself, and hand made brick background showing the craftsmanship that at least at one time counted. Your angles do a nice job holding the eye a moment longer, your processing giving the image that old time feel, although maybe a bit clean for “back then” standards.
In voting I rated this photo fairly high, in what I thought was a boring challenge, so from me, good job.
Side note, me always the concrete guy noted your(?) porch, and my eye tells me that it exceeds the 2% ADA standards that might prevent some buyer in the future from obtaining a governmental loan. Just a thought.
