    nice of you to offer, but may i ask what makes you any more qualified than anyone else to critique someone's work? are you a professional, published photographer or something?

    good

    -great clouds
    -overhanging tree adds interest and works here
    -good comp (just a tad to much dark FG in the color version)

    nit

    -photo is underexposed (light meter being tricked by bright sky)
    -photo has a slight tilt to the right when placed on a (grid)
    -photo is noisy

    tweak

    -cropped a tad off the bottom of photo
    -brightened the photo by setting the white point on one of the clouds

    -used gradient tool in Nikon NX2 to lightened just the dark FG and not the sky to imporve overall exposure

    -straightened the photo
    -healed out the tv antenna in the far left
    -put the photo through NR software

    Hope this helps and thanks for posting.

    PS If any of these terms are new to you just google them as there is
    lots of info on them and not that hard to learn.

    Take care,

    Dwayne Oakes

    OK. I'll give you a HARD one to critique.

    Do THIS one. Really. It's tougher than you'd think.

    Thanks.

    good

    -interesting comp (lines and shapes)
    -good light

    nit

    -black film border is a bit of a distraction
    -photo is flat (lacks contrast)
    -photo lacks color vibrance
    -photo has alot of dirt specs
    -photo is noisy

    tweak

    -cropped the black border out
    -set black and white points (room still left on the histogram)
    -added a tad of global contrast boost
    -added a tad of selective color saturation to just the trees with color

    -lightened (dodge) the lower window frame were the light is reflecting
    -lightened (dodge) to main vertical window frames

    -healed out the dirt specs
    -put the photo through NR software

    Hope this helps and thanks for posting.

    Take care,

    Dwayne Oakes

    When you're dodging these items, are you selecting them first, or free handing it?
    What setting on the dodge tool?

    Always looking for help, especially with a new camera body. Taken at sunrise, so the colors are really orange/red.
