Greetings from the Critique Club

First Impressions:

Is that it is just a shot of an old building, nothing special to see here and I am ready to go on to the next shot.

Technical (Comp, lighting, color, focus):

The building is framed well but it is cluttered with a lot of brush. I agree with the commenter that I would have cropped out the thin line of snow at the bottom.

The lighting is ok and you captured some nice detail on the subject but the top left is a bit blown out. The color is pretty bland and some of the red/bronze hues are not that pleasant to look at. I think this shot would look nice as a Black and White.

Focus seems just a tad off. The whole scene is soft and Iím not sure that is the best route to take with this type of photo.


This meets the challenge well and I like the route you took with it.


Iím not really getting much of either on this shot.


This shot just doesnít grab your attention and I think many voters quickly voted and moved on to the next one. You got quite a few 6ís and a handful of 7ís and 8ís so there was an audience that appreciated this shot. I think a tad sharper photo with a dramatic Black and white tone would bump you up several spots.

Keep at it and enter more challenges and you will continue to grow and get better.

very nice :-) I love pictureS like this; if this were mine I think I would have cropped out that thin line of white there at the bottom as it gives a feeling of a boarder and there is actually none there; it's just a little distracting

I wouldn't submit this photo. It's not sharp...really at all.
