Greetings from the Critique Club

Beautifully executed image of this church and its surroundings. I very much like the angle from which you captured this structure. Technically, I think it's just fine. Compositionally, it's also strong.

You have created the essence of a bleak landscape which seems to embody loss.

It may be this bleakness worked against your scoring a little. If so, it would be simply because the voters didn't understand the beauty of your interpretation.

Good luck in your future Challenges. I'll look forward to seeing more of your work.

Great shot. I love the matching crosses. Maybe cropping out the left side of the image just in front of the church would help just a little.

Wow, what a neat rustic church. Nice position. The ground is a bit dreary in color though. I would really like to see it stand out more.

I like the colors and effect, but don't see anything to associate with memorial day. except the cross marker. that doesn't remind me of fallen soldiers though.

Comment by rwouthuis:
The image is very good. I think the composition and the processig have been well executed. The gradient in the sky is a bit strong maybe. For me, this challenge requires an appropriate title for it to fit well in the challenge. I'm not American, but I believe that Memorial Day is a remembrance for those that fought in the war. This image doesn't really seem to fit with the Memorial Day title. JMO.

*Greetings from the Critique Club*

First off, let me say congratulations on your 11th place finish! I remember this image quite well from the D&L challenge.

Hmmm... What to say about an image that scored a 6.6+... Well, I'll offer some of my observations - please don't weigh them heavily, however, as I'm sure I'll be grasping for areas of improvement! :-)

Composition:
Fantastic! It's very nicely balanced and uses the rule of thirds well. Good title too. I am curious as to the reflections in the water - they don't seem to me to necessarily be coming from the lights. Were they added along with the water blur? Or were they just the result of the long exposure? They don't quite look "natural".

Focus/DOF:
Tack sharp. Outstanding. The water's focus is a puzzler though (to me). Would still like to know how it was achieved. It works well, but is an obvious contrast to the rest of the image's focus.

Color:
VERY magical. The unnatural vividness of the tones really help transport the viewer to another place and time. Great use.

Overall:
WOW... :-) This is really a super piece of work. Glad you finally took that shot! Terrific job - congratulations again!

This is just a wonderful image. The illumination and colors are, if I may sound hokey, DELIGHTFUL! Good Luck.
