Love the distortion from the wide angle on this.

OK, I'm going through the Free Study submissions, purposefully finding those images I think are shot with a less conventional eye - this is one of those images! Thanks for offering something that isn't just DPC friendly eye-candy (though of course there's nothing wrong with eye-candy):

Positives: What an interesting perspective - just how wide was your lens? It works really well and your composition of elements within the scene is well matched to your lens choice. There is plenty to look at here and I find my eye is pulled easily to each of the elements - there really is something to look at in every part of the image. I particularly like the guitar case. I also like the long shadows which emphasise the already pronounced perspective.

Critical stuff: Not much really, I do wish that the shadow of the guitar case wasn't cropped and wonder whether you might have increased the saturation of green a little to bring the wall out a little more but I can see how that might have messed with the authenticity of the image.

Overall: I like this image, it is interesting and well executed. I'm glad you submitted it.

Black and white may have worked well for this image
