Greetings from the Critique Club:

This shot rocks. It's way underrated. I love the contrasts - the composition is great. I think the only thing that hurt this shot was the sky. The clouds almost look inverted and don't look "real" and definitely don't fit the mood of the rest of the picture.

This is a really nice edit - good capture and good finish. Too bad about the not-so-understanding average voter.

happy shooting!

Very nice. It is perhaps a bit too high contrast--the clouds have posterized in the background.

You've definitely created high contrast with a photo-editing program, but the sky seems....overly done, and it seems to border on a pencil type drawing.

This is a beautiful scene. I'd like to see sharper focus on the front of the house, rather than the upper right clouds. The sky is a bit blown out, which distracts from the rest of the scene. Nice job with the colors. They're subtle and help give a contrasty feel to the image.

The clouds are a bit distrating but all else fits very nice

The angle of the horizon is crooked. Perhaps a 1- 2 degree rotation CCW could have helped this. Good luck in this challenge. <7> Would have been 8 or 9 if it were straightened.

Good black and white contrast.

I love old buildings. I think I'd like this a bit more if shot from an unusual angle, although this does showcase the doors and windows of the back and the lighting helps with the contrast.

Meets challenge well.

No argument on the high contrast.
Too busy for this style perhaps. a simpler subject with fewer lines maybe.

looks a bit overworked...
