For the Critique Club:

Composition: Only from the comments can I tell what this is (I assume now it IS the flagpole.) That in itself is not vital, but without that knowledge I have no idea of scale, for example, or what some other angle might have fetched. I wonder why there is no flab aboard? Or what this shot would be like with the flag attached. It is not an uninteresting shot, but I am not sure how long it would hold my interest.

Technical: It all appears to be in focus (although again the lack of a sense of scale takes away any indication of DOF) and in what appears to be quite bright light, there are no important areas overexposed. I think it is a little flat in color ("washed out" as one commenter said.)

Overall: Certainly meets the challenge with the blue sky, but I don't feel drawn to the image in any way.

I hope you tell us what this is. I sure can't figure it out. It's nice and clear, good focus, don't know how good the cropping is cause I don't know how big it is or what it is. What I see I like, would just like to see more . PTL

The great 3 million dollar Canberra flagpost? BEAUTIFUL! What happened to the flag though? Wish the flag was flapping in the wind, it would have made the picture more interesting... I have a very similar picture. Good luck!
