Greetings from the Critique Club

You've done a beautifully moody image here. It fits the Challenge perfectly, tells a good story, and is nicely photographed, especially under the Basic Rules.

You've placed quite well in a large field of entries. Anything over 6 is pretty good pickings.

One of the problems with a "dark" image is that some of our voters do not have perfectly calibrated monitors and I think this may well have worked against this fine image. If they could not see the subtle detail - which most certainly is there - they are going to vote low numbers.

While that's the nature of the beast, it does not detract from the excellence of your work.

I think this is "too dark", but I keep coming back to it anyway. A high vote from me.

Not bad but a little too low key for my taste, still above average in the challenge and I voted 6

This is a very lonely photo. the title works well with the image. I enjoy the simplicity and darkness of the whole thing. "10"

I think that this image is too dark, good the idea and the composition.
