I like this photo because the price is changing in the photo. I also like that it’s an old school pump and there aren’t a lot of those around anymore. Anyway I think this is a really good picture.

i like this. i think the red alabama is kindof distracting because it is so bright. if it were more faded out i think it would have been more cohesive. i still think this is awesome.

Am sphs get some gas

this is a good photo, i like the way you captured the old pump and texture look that it had. i like the way you made the alabama sticker stick out to sort of show other that you found this in a old country town.

This has a few good points in this picture. I like the rusty look of it. I could picture this being at a really extremely old gas station. I really like it. The thing about it though is I think its lacking something. I am not exactly sure but maybe get more of the picture? Show a little more of the nozzle or something of that. You did a great job though for the most part! I love how it’s only 12 dollars for 5 gallons. Only if it was that cheap still…

The cropping and the antique-like feeling to this picture really caught my eye. The coloring of the rust and the sharpness of the pump are great too. Good lighting and picture overall.

I like the antique feel to this picture. I agree that the red Alabama sticker is distracting because the color is so vivid. I like that the nozzle is in the picture. You used the rule of thirds well, letting the edge of the pump be off-center. Overall, good job.

I really like this photo. I like that the numbers are changing and the rusted look that its giving off. I'm not a big fan of the Alabama sticker in the middle or the red letters at the bottom. but i do like this you fit the gas pump in when you cropped it. Overall great photo!

This photo is really interesting. I like for one that you found an old school pump. but also i like the crop, it makes it seem even older by excluding other elements in the area. The only things i would have changed would be a slightly tighter crop because the self service sign is a little distracting. Also the Alabama sticker could have been faded a little bit.
