Greetings from the Critique Club
By Inspzil

Greetings M. Beguin. Before I start this, I was looking at your comments and I must say I'm glad you didn't win because if you did, then I would've blown my best shot at winning anything on DPC. You have plenty of ribbons, you can spare this one.

Composition - Nice array of chairs with some good shadow patterns. I think you did an outstanding job conveying the warmth of the wood to the voters. This is a surprisingly simple scene, but with all the shadows and the angle you took this picture from, it sure looks like a lot is going on. The angle and the way you framed this is very good.

Technical - Besides the hot spot in the center of the picture, it is almost perfectly exposed. Everything is very nicely focused. I think the hot spot in the middle of the picture is the only thing really wrong with this picture.

Overall - I've been thinking about this picture for 24h. Honestly, its a quality pic, but I have a hard time telling you that I don't really like it. If it was someone else, it would be easier. But it doesn't really do anything for me. There... I said it. It can be difficult to say something like that from someone like me to a more experienced, obviously better photographer like you, on a week where I won the challenge I'm critiquing a photo for, and not sound condescending. This has been awkward and I'm glad its done. Hopefully you can understand what I'm trying to say. Good luck in future challenges. - Bob

I agree. I think this photo should have won first place. It's a beautiful photo. Awesome job.

My goodness. This photo should have won first place. Why it didn't is just beyond me. I really wish I would see the opportunities to take pictures like this one. Oh well.

Some might not like this because it is technicallly not an office, but I love this shot. The lighting, shadows and lines all add up to superb photography. One of my favorites for the challenge!

This a beautiful picture! What can I say ... the patterns, the shadows, the golden colour on the straw seats, the square format, everything is beautiful. 10 from me.

I keep coming back to this one, so I'm bumping up the score to a 9. The shadows are beautiful and the lighting perfect for the moodiness of it. Congrats!

Nice tone in the wood. A little busy maybe.

Excellent use of light to bring out the gorgeous warm tones you've captured in this image. This is remarkably well done. Really gives the viewer a sense of feeling, as if you were standing in the photograph. 10

A meeting room isn't an office. Nice tones in the image but the subject matter isn't particularly interesting.
