    I am posting for general critique including remarks for technicalities, composition, etc. Thank you!

    30s, F11, ISO100, tripod.

    P.S. SOme already have noticed it is not truly horizontal - do you notice it? It looked OK to me :)

    Thanks for the notice!

    It used to work with that website but not any longer :) And it looked OK when I posted.

    Now you should see it fine :)

    The slanted horizon is the first thing I notice, I find it very distracting. It would be a simple matter to fix it if you have photoshop or something similar. I like the warm glow of the artificial lighting and I think the exposure is dead on. The shot is very centered, but it seems to work. It is a very symetrical shot. Nice work

    It looks like you've added some additional information, I will put it back in the critique section for you.

    Got it. Cool shot! I love how the ship is out of water. The reflection is on point. Critically I would go with a tighter crop on the subject.

    AlisonPower: thank you :)

    Pursuer & Craig: thank you for detailed critique :) I will experiment with a close crop too :) I have taken some frames with a closer crop but they are are not as sharp - I will make a remote control to help it.

    Hi, I like this shot pretty much. The symmetry and the centered compo perfectly match the title. The exposure is just great and the lights .... definitely an almost perfect shot. As the other already said, I would also try a tighter crop to make the "H" stand out even more. You can also do this in PS, so there's no need to reshoot. It might be a bit tricky to find the right crop but I would try not to crop within one of the reflection "columns". Just play around a bit and you'll find the perfect size.

    Thanks!

    It seems to depend on personal taste - one photographer commented that he would prefer a little wider picture :) However I have no problems working with photos in PS in, so to speak, intermediate level and tigher crop seems an interesting alternative to me :) Reshoot is a little better when I want the best quality :)

    You said you wanted a general critique - you would have got that in the General Gallery.
    The Critique Gallery is for getting help with specific problems. You didn't seem to have any - at least you didn't say you had any. Asking for a general critique is the same as saying 'what do you think'.
    In future try to be more specific - read the guidlines.
    And if you have a problem you could always try PMing the Forum Mod - he's usually the one who has moved it.
