Thank you, sir."

Hello from the critique club...

Better late than never on getting a critique. We are trying to take care of some backlog. Now on to the pic. The first thing that really jumps out at me is the sky. I love those angry clouds. The colors I think are good. I have to agree with the comment that ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', '/') + 1) . ' BrennanOB made. I think the empty space in the middle actually hurts the image. You could have rotated the camera slightly to the left, still leaving the tree and the left graves out of center, I think it would have made an impact. Anyway happy shooting and keep it up. Nice shot

I like the rich tones, but the division between groups of monuments puts the void between them center stage leaving the eye scurrying between them. Featuring either one of the groups would have made a stronger image.

Nicely composed, though too strident in the savagely saturated colours. And it's just not very interesting; certainly you have held Sanders' attention, but he has no choice. Given the choice I reckon he'd rather be elsewhere. Me too, I'm afraid, because there's nothing there I want to linger over. 5.
