David Blecman's Annapolis Photography Workshop Group July image critique's theme was "Distressed." I didn't have any winners. Here is one of my entries.
The judges said this image needed to be a half stop brighter and were disturbed by the crap on the left side of frame. Made several suggestions for cropping the crap out. At the time I was irritated by their comments. However, I went ahead and reedited the image.
