* Greetings from the Critique Club *

I remember this shot from the challenge well. By far the best wire-cutting shot. You kept it simple, clean and colorful. Very nice composition. I like the lines a lot too - they lead the eye right into the decision portrayed in this picture.

It met the challenge perfectly and is a very nice shot on its own. The background is a little noisy & distracting, but only slightly so. The detail you managed to eke out on the wirecutters is great. Lighting is also very good - very little glare (with the exception of the background, and I'm not sure how you could cut down on that noise unless you did it selectively). And by sticking with very basic colors in the wires, you really accented the overall feel with the color.

Very nice job. Sorry I don't have more critical suggestions to make, but I think you nailed this one right on!

Just my 2 cents... :-)

Good though for the challenge I would have brought the wire accross the cutting survice of the dikes. Good shot and well balanced.

oh another wire-cutting pic ! But I must say this is the best one so far, so well done. The background is a little distracting but at least you've kept the wires simple.

I went back and rethought this, personally I would have preferred to see someones hand in the photo to boot, but I have to say that the title does give me the impression that 'someone' is behind the decision to cut the red wire. So I am moving this up to a 5. This is the best of the wire cutting photos so far.

Great idea! Although I think you could have executed it a little better. This fits the challenge well IMO. Nice thinking!
