I like the composition of the image and how the subject matter comes together. The sign of the museum and the manager leaving come together as well. I also see a sense of Americana in this image, which comes from the building.   Posted: 01/13/2022 07:41:26

Hi Chuck, I like the composition, it is centered but it works well for this image. I think the exposure is handled well and I like that you darkened the sky a little. At first I did not like the red truck but after consideration I think it is a valuable part of the image.   Posted: 01/18/2022 16:13:24

It seems to give the old guy a destination.   Posted: 01/19/2022 08:43:47

Architectural design is perfect for this museum. Good choice for subject and good timing to capture activity. Lighting matches the atmosphere and snow on roof, The cutoff of the upper left roof makes me want to see the whole building. Did you try removing the power cable in top center?   Posted: 01/21/2022 12:31:01
