Greetings from the Critique Club

Beautifully executed image of this church and its surroundings. I very much like the angle from which you captured this structure. Technically, I think it's just fine. Compositionally, it's also strong.

You have created the essence of a bleak landscape which seems to embody loss.

It may be this bleakness worked against your scoring a little. If so, it would be simply because the voters didn't understand the beauty of your interpretation.

Good luck in your future Challenges. I'll look forward to seeing more of your work.

Not what I usually associate with Memorial Day, but a beautiful picture.

Great shot. I love the matching crosses. Maybe cropping out the left side of the image just in front of the church would help just a little.

Wow, what a neat rustic church. Nice position. The ground is a bit dreary in color though. I would really like to see it stand out more.

I like the colors and effect, but don't see anything to associate with memorial day. except the cross marker. that doesn't remind me of fallen soldiers though.

The image is very good. I think the composition and the processig have been well executed. The gradient in the sky is a bit strong maybe. For me, this challenge requires an appropriate title for it to fit well in the challenge. I'm not American, but I believe that Memorial Day is a remembrance for those that fought in the war. This image doesn't really seem to fit with the Memorial Day title. JMO.

I recognize this place from previous comments. I still love the setting and the way you captured it. Nice diminished tones.
