Sorry, nothing to critique on this one for me. This is very cool and very printable to frame and put on the wall. The OCD in me wishes the windows lined up better so you didn't have a partial window on the far right and the bottom of the frame but the windows look out of square so I don't think that's possible anyway.

ok thx - The lines were bothering me big time here. They are not straight, and I tried to fix them....
Maybe it's just me...

I suck at critique, but I do like this a lot. Especially, printed quite large it would be a really interesting piece. Lots, to look at and think about.The lines are a bit off but so is what is going on in the photo. Everything is broken. Well I could go into a big metaphor, but I think you get the point.

Marko .... frame it. I do not mind the lines being not straight, as a matter of fact, it does add to the image, as far as I am concerned. The whole thing is about "listening", or paying attention, observing ... with that said, the details in each frame tell stories, so let's see what they have to say. I especially like that one frame is totally blank. nothing, nada, zilch in the frame. Perfect! I think it is a very strong image, and I like it.

I think the wobbly bottom of the frames adds something that a more uniform grid wouldn't. Very striking image.

Thanks for the comments.

This phenomenon happens a lot to all of us I'm sure. We look at our own images and 'see' what we believe to be a fault or something that needs correction....and nobody else notices. :) Thx again!

I like it a lot too. It has a kind of cool feeling from the bluish glass and green foliage, it somehow contrasts the destruction of the broken panes and graffiti to give a calming feeling. The words and bird add to hugely to the image in my opinion.

Thanks Antz! The words and the bird were the exact elements of the scene that first called to me.

There are portions of the window framing in the photo that one expect to be a little out of shape due to the lack of glass to support them, but I think I see a bit of pincushioning throughout the entire frame. What time of day was it shot? With the absence of glass in a few of the frames, they appear bright enough to make me think mid-day. It's probably not going anywhere, so I think I might go back when the light was golden. What about HDR?

Seems a little bit soft, too. Just my 2 cents.

Very cool. In addition to what the others have said, I also think the missing pains really add to the image
