I found this challenge subject to be quite odd at first, thinking "what in the world could I do for this?" Little did I remember, I drive by this old gas station every day to work. I love old gas stations as they have so much character.

I'm losing count of how many times I have seen this gas station in this challenge! Looks like you were all there at different times, however.

Biggest issue I see is some visible tilt that can be corrected under basic rules. The pole is a composition problem, but hey, that's what the place looks like, can't do much about it.

Very nice and one of my favorites. One suggestion...would prefer to see either all of the lamp in front or crop to eliminate half a lamp showing.

I am amazed at how many time this station is featured in this challenge...I like the B&W of yours...wish you could read the "Shell" on the shells better but it is good anyway

Nice shot but the picture doesn't look straight, looks tilted down to the right...

Great one.

This is good, but. IMHO it should have been shot as portrait instead of landscape, that way the lamp post wouldn't be cut off and the space to the right would not detract from the shot. Also, it seems to tilt to the right, needs to be level.

I think this is an awesome picture, but I notice that it is slightly tilted. Unfortunately, many of my photos turn out tilted as well. I still think its a great shot regardless!
