    Strengths:
    I like how the shadows are so soft across the severe ridges. The exposure looks perfect to moi.
    Suggestions:
    I might have cropped off the left side of the image a little.

    Strengths:
    Very strong interpretation of the theme. I like the strong contrast and the crossing shadows as interest and energy.
    Suggestions:
    I'd experiment with the tilt to see if the image would be stronger with sharper angles.

    Strengths:
    an image that attempts to simplify its subject matter to just the theme statement. Yellow is usually a fairly rare colour (and a strong one), so as colours go, this one stands out. The shadows add more lines that contrast or "contradict" the metal ones, adding interest to the frame (esp. as you start to pull your eye back from the frame). The larger framework acts as a container for the smaller lines. Having the lines on diagonals adds some dynamicism (a word?) to the image -- if you had shot vertical, the image wouldn't "work" and would have appeared too static.
    Suggestions:
    It works as it is for me.

    Strengths:
    The rich warm colour is great and it's nice to have those shadows to add a little more element.
    Suggestions:
    Where something is skewed from the frame edges, like a horizon, it should be made to look deliberate. This one sort of looks like you couldn't get quite the right angle; next time I would give even more of a diagonal to it.
