Greetings from the Critique Club...

Hi panynj :)

Compositionally, this is a nice image. Subjectively, it doesn't offer a lot of interest to me. I think the blue saturation is overboard to the point of looking very unnatural. At least you didn't get but one flag hater to comment on the image :) People outside the United States don't seem to have much patriotism for their own countries, and they really hate Americans who do. Politics will override great photography in most cases...

decent enough detail, and focus, and so on, but to me simply an architectural portrait - telling me very little, affecting me likewise very little. Whilst the exposure is 'correct' in the sense of nothing is over- and nothing is under-exposed, the overall brightness of this is taken too far: you'd get more impact, more sense of the true depth of colour of the stone, more drama to the shot if you were to lower the overall brightness level - just try adjusting with levels and moving the slider to the right a bit, just to give it some punch. A perfectly fine, ut an unexciting entry.

this is pretty average, but none-the-less an okay image

In our current political climate, this will undoubtedly go under appreciated. I like it a lot! Thanks!
