You've got some dust or something on your lens/sensor. To the right of the second from top window, two thirds of the way along there's a bit of a cluster.
Overall nice picture, though. Very rectangular.

This looks to be saturated just a tad too much and the same goes for the sharpening.

i like the color contrasts - but the image seems oversharpened (especially noticeable around the edges of the building

I like the composition and the vivid color. It has that super sharpened look, but I think it works with the texture of the bricks and the grass against the soft clouds. It didn't effect my score, but you have alot of dust on your sensor (I think that's what those specks in the sky are). 7 from me.

Blownout highlights, sensor dust, a little overexposed. Comp seems to work. Interesting subject.

Great color and texture. I'll bet it was difficult to downsize this file and get good sharpness! I like the deep red bricks against the sky. If there is anything to change it might be to just get a detail of the ruin instead of the whole thing. I would suggest framing just a perspective shot of that tower. It might have more effect for this challenge. Overall a good shot with vivid color and sharpness!

The shapes, the light, the angles, everything comes together magically.

There is just something about weathered brick that is interesting to look at. You also have the windows so even more rectangles. Should do well .. a 7 from me

I like this a lot - could have a little more saturation but overall it's wonderful!
