I gave this a 10 Nico, it really blew me away because it was so simple and I got this weird mood from it. Maybe because it's because I don't want to go back to school but either way... Nice work buddeh
"Gentle" is a good word for how your pictures come out, no?

A beautiful shot. The muted colours give this a warm, but melancholy feel.

I love the subdued colors and the mild shadows. You can really imagine yourself in this room. The composition is amazing as well (the lone clock, the middle chair abutting the one for the lefty, the paint on the board, even the black corner works!!!)

The only thing I can think of would maybe to tilt the image so that the top line above the blackboard is straight (I think either straight or much more tilted would work best....but this is such a minor detail!)
Very well done!!!!! Hope you get a ribbon!!!

Such lovely light and coloring...one of my favorites...I love the stillness, the quiet.

I can almost smell the chalk. I think a little burning of the shadows would draw the subject out even more. Solid 8

Nice sun, great lighting, nice texturing ande details. Feels like a nico blue. sorry if it's not.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very good. I like this alot. IT has simplicity yet there is enough to make the whole shot interesting. The placement of the chairs and the 'off' arm chair makes it interesting along with the white on the bottom right corner of the blackboard. Perfect use of light. 8
