    I am surprised this did not do better. It is a great shot!

    Colour is off-putting but love the lines of the road way

    Like the twinning subject, like the framing, like the composition, hate the colour. The bluish cast looks really "off". Maybe a white balance issue? Setting set for indoor?

    Visually interesting though I think composition may have been improved a bit by cropping out the distracting clutter on ground (both foreground and all the way back to the trucks i.e., about bottom 1/4 of image, and then tighten up right side a bit for proportion). Need work on white balance; greenish sky and over-blueish

    IMO it's too blue, but I like the sense of height that the photo conveys, and the sweeping curve of the roadway. In my TT.

    A very powerful shot, well composed. The colour of the sky seems to be a bit off.

Mar 7, 2015
    Like the choise of perspective and composition. Shooting at another time with low sun angle perhaps would add some interesting light and shadow to the undersides of the roadway.

Mar 7, 2015
    Absolutely love the perspective and this is a novel treatment of the theme. My problem with this image is blue color, which does not look natural and is somewhat distracting. None the less in my TT.

    I really like your subject and composition.
my only concern is the colour and lighting - whether it would have been possible to play with shadows and highlights to tone down the contrast slightly on the left pillars. the sky appears almost too turquoise.

But I imagine that exposure was really tough on taking this, and frankly the interesting viewpoint and subject makes it a favourite for me.

    this is screaming for black and white. the blue does not work
also a horizontal flip would have got the curve to lead you out of the picture

    Great angle and lovely shot in my favourites. Pity that all the activity going on couldn't have been excluded but that's being picky!

    Theme - 5
Composition - 3 Like the curve between the roads. Would have preferred a portrait format rather than square and slightly wider to include base of columns
Technical - 2 Whites are clipped and color is way off
Originality - 4 Like the perspective from under the road
Overall impression - 4 Interesting view point and lines

    I would crop/clone at the bottom to remove as much ground as possible, it doesn't add to the photo. Perhaps reduce the blue cast also. I think you have captured the strength of the structure very well. Love the two front columns dominating the whole and the unusual open strip between the two structures accentuates the curve adds a lot to the composition. Good eye!
