    excellent shot, the combination of elements just works and the colour has your usual signature.

    Thanks for the comps.

    On the lighting, actually its natural
    I look long and hard for these spots that have competing colors occuring.
    I dont add to it, I find thats been done to death and better then I could do by others
    I concentrate on the exposure time and the location instead.

    sodium vapor and white fluorescent come out yellow and blue @ night.
    Sometimes fluorescent comes green, but here in was inside a whiteish blue shade.

    Take a look at my color temp here. If anything was not natural then at 2700 the yellow would be brown and the blue would be black. Just so you know theres stuff like this out there in the "wild" LoL

    Besides that, I did some dodging and burning to bring out what my little sensor is missing.. LOL

    Nah cool.. was just wondering how it was done is all. Good eye though and dedication no doubt looking for these spots. Definitely a good signature style to your photos which is what you want, probably some of the best night shots i've seen have come from yourself.

    You have the gift of making the most uninteresting subjects very interesting. Bonus points for achieving unique results while keeping things natural.
