You've picked a great angle to take the four seasons photographs from. It's an age-old theme, but this might be the best interpretation of it I've seen yet. The only major qualm I have about it is that the differently angled winter picture makes the whole thing a touch unbalanced. It's not even that noticeable at first, and the slight variation in the other pictures is fine, since the composition mostly builds on the branches of the tree and not the bench. But in the winter picture, where there are no leaves, the bench draws more attention and the difference to other pictures becomes more obvious.

The thing I do like about the different angle of the winter picture is that the branches and the edge of the bushes in the background almost seem to continue seamlessly from the autumn picture. I don't know if this was intentional or not, but building even more on that could've made the whole of the pictures even greater. There's some of the same in the autumn and spring pictures too.

Either way, awesome work with the four seasons theme. Technically, the individual photographs are obviously quite flawless. They're well focused, and the natural colors fit perfectly together as a whole. The subject matter is a good blend of nature and constructed environment, and commendably appreciates detail, with the cycle of nature in appropriate focus.

Thank you for a really great critique! It made me actually look on the piece again and see it anew. :heart: The winter piece was supposed to be more like the others but the snow came and the snow went away almost instantly so I didn't really get any more chances but the winter photo is my personal favourite because of the snowflakes even if it is odd bench out ;)

Yet again, thank you.

Great if you find my critique useful! A lot of my comments have been a bit on the long side, but it's actually the first time I've written anything in DA's critique system. And yeah, I didn't mention the snowflakes but obviously they add a nice touch to the winter picture :)
