Wow, thought this would have placed higher in "empty room", I loved the unique "trashiness" of the room. This reminded me of what a motel/hotel room must have looked like after a rock band stayed the night and partied all night long ... 5.6 is a great score early in your DPC career. Congrats !! And you live next to Universal Studios too ... cool, I am a amusement park junky.

Hey there from the Critique Club

First of all, congrats on your highest scoring image to date.

Camera Work/Technical: I like it. Your focus is very nice and your depth of field captures all the elements that this image needs. Your tones and coloring are very nice for this find.

Lighting: I do like the lighting, but the side window is just a bit distracting. I think shooting this one at a different time of day would have made this image even better. I think that the window needs to be included, but with lighting that is a little less harsh.

Composition/Content: Again, great find. The chair is placed very well, and the messy room really helps make this one strong. All elements keep the eye moving in and around the frame looking for a new stain or rip somewhere in the shot.

My Opinion: Very nice job meeting the challenge. I think that you made the right decision on your submission for this challenge.

In need of some repair, it looks like. Bonus point for finding such ugly wallpaper (personal opinion, of course.)

Great perspective and wide angle shot. Seems a bit fuzzy on my monitor though.

Something very 'fifties' about this image. I like the colour and PP.

What an ugly place! I don't like the window and it's light on the left. Would it have been better if they had been cropped?

Fantastic color and grime...there's just something about a purple carpet.

Reminds me of some hotels I've stayed in. LOL Good use of light and composition with the single chair. Love the peeling wallpaper!
