::: Greetings from Critique Club :::

Hi, as requested, here is an indepth critique of your submission.

First Impression - the most important one:
Nice texture and lighting. Very well exposed.

Composition isn't this photos strongest point. The choice of crop feels a bit crowded for my tastes.

Discussing subject is sorta pointless for this photo as the texture and shapes of the "columns" are more the subject than the colums themselves I feel. That said, you did well at emphasizing the shape and texture.

Technical (Color, focus, and light):
Color: natural and well balanced.
Focus, sharp as a tack as far as I can tell.
Light, excellent.

To grow its vote?:
Tough challenge, but I feel the crowded composition may have hurt you some. And for many this photo probably didn't provide much "wow". DPC voters love some sort of wow factor.

Very nice light study. I really like your choice of angle to capture the lighting.

Hope to see more from you soon,

Almost looks like a line of pregnant women. Very graceful curves. I like the pattern and DOF. Nice the way the light plays here making the highlights and shadows bring out the curves.
