Travelling through the Western Cape, South Africa, we came across these delightful colours alongside the road. Critique would be appreciated.

Hello happytommy!

I bear both good news and not so good news but let me first welcome you here!

Not so good news is that the main gallery contains all pictures but the Critique gallery contains only those pictures specified to be examined by a group of members who form the Critique team.

To have your picture uploaded there tick the box which says "Critique wanted" when hou upload your picture. Your image then will receive critique but it won't be allowed to be voted. But it can be modified by any member including those of the Critique team.

I like the picture, the light, the coulours, the exposure and the framing. I notice the composition is a play of zig zag triangles which help making the eye moving along it. For my taste the sky is the least interesting part and I could suggest you to replace it for something with a stronger blue hue (with or without ***** clouds). But I can also suggest a crop, cutting off the sky completely.. What remains is a nicely lit barn and a landscape of ridges and fields.

What do you think?

Many thanks, Pablo, both for the welcome and explanation re critique. I have done as you suggested with great improvement. I now have two new images. Is it possible to show you privately or do I have to go through the main gallery again?

To be honest you can upload the new image for critique actually and display the original as a modification or a version on the same page.

Remember to tick the box which says Critique, when you upload the image.
