Greetings from the Critique Club :)

First impression: WOW

Technically, it is flawless, absolute perfection! Your exposure is fantastic, giving a gorgeous motion blur to the wheel and the river, and the lighting is spot on. It is sharp with no visible noise. To make a long story shot: it has a very professional look.

The subject is obviously well chosen. Spinning is the essence of a wheel, etc. It was a great idea to include the building on the right. It gives an interesting contrast between new and old, which tells a story about Liverpool. The river helps to locate your subject, but I would have liked your photo just as well without it, leaving just the docs as a base.

The composition is good, but from a point of view of pure design, there is maybe a tad too much going on. There are a lot of shapes: circles, rectangles, lines, stars, curves,... Plus two strongly contrasting warm and cold color tones, also those do reinforce the old/new contrast.

Anyway, my warmest congratulations for your well deserved ribbon!

If you have a question or a remark about this critique, feel free to contact me.

Wonderful scene. Truly perfectly illuminated in every way. Crisp and sharp. Great colors and composition. And to be honest I don't think I've seen it represented any better. Nicely done.

Cant decide if I like the building in this one or not? However, the blue tone to the wheel is just gorgeous, and the blur in the river is wonderful Really nice shot!

o0o0o0o Motion blur ftw. perfect exposure, nice reflections. The top of the buildings it getting a touch dark and fading into the sky, but other than that, nice job.
