Hi from Critique Club.

Here are my comments:

1 - So much contrast. The orange explodes here... and it does not helps...

2 - The subject is very close. I had to read the title to understand the theme. Here I believe you could do the photo a little more distant of the subject.

3 - The photo is in the vertical position. I think you could make this in a horizontal position. This would give more stability to your image.

Hope you like the ideas.

Hmmm... they're definitely orange! Sorry Susan, they are pretty dull. But I'm not sure that even De Sousa could make orange barrels interesting! :)

for me your focus is off...the subjects needed to be in total sharp focus...

Seems like it has a little blur or shake or something. Just doesn't seem crisp and clear and my eye is trying to pull out more details than it can. Sorry.
