Greetings from the Critique Club

Sorry this did not score higher, I thought it was one of the more interesting images in this challenge. Also, check out the distribution of scores - that is really interesting. No 9s or 10s and no 1s or 2s, then an almost even distribution of the other scores. Quite unusual I think.

I love the composition, even though I'm sure this is a candid shot, it could conceivably have been a set up. The man looks so engrossed in his newspaper it is clear he is blissfully unaware that you have caught him. Nice.

I am a little unsure why this didn't score higher, other than perhaps there was too much (or maybe not quite enough) of the canal boat showing. Perhaps voters needed more context? I don't know, it certainly puzzles me. I would have expected the score to be much closer to a 6.

This came out really well, Greetmir! Far better than the one I tried. I like that you even got the bottle of wine, too. Nicely done!
