HI from The Critique Club!
First Let me say I love the title of your image. All in all I think the image is pretty good! A few small things I think you might want to play with on this one. First I think the lamp post and red flower are a tad distracting. I also think this image would be great with a tighter crop, maybe taking out the tree it\'s self entirly, along with the lamp. Since the shadow is the main focus here. The natural lighting and the way you caught the shadow on the wall is great! Excellant focus, nice and crisp shot. The angle is very good, which keeps it from being boring in this situation. I also like that this is a creative take on the Branch challenge. 147 out of 426 isn\'t all that bad. Overall I think it is a good shot. Very good for your 3rd challenge. I hope this critique has helped you a small bit. Good Luck with future images!!

Wow, the combination of a stunning architectural shot on its own, plus the tree and its shadow combine to make this a top effort in this challenge. The offline verticals niggle a bit. Not obvious enough to look deliberate/art so maybe just not attended to. Costs it a 10, scores 9

The wall seems too busy and takes away from the striking shadow cast in the strong sunlight.

It took me a second but I was pleasantly surprised when I "got it" well done!

I like how you can see the shadow of the branch.

This is really original. I really like it. I wonder if the picture would have been better without the tree? That patch of sky is kind of distracting. The shadow is quite powerful by itself.

P. S. Is this the Chapala Lofts?

I like your concept, but for me, I find the lampost and other building in the background distracting. Good capture of light and dark shadows though.

Interesting perspective. I wish the lamp post weren't there. The focus is good and the shadow is a nice touch.
