    I like this shot. It's a wonder no one's commenting on it. Very pleasant viewing, and just ripe for wall mounting... which I would do if it was mine.

    Watch your framing. You cut off the side of the bench.

    What's your subject? The bench would have been a perfect subject and would have added interest to this photo.

    The flare from the street light looks bad, IMO. Was your lens dirty or scratched? The ripples coming out from the light suggest that.

    I find the street light to be very distracting. A darker exposure would have helped that and added an element of mystery/intrigue to the scene.

    Haha.

    @molsen
    For me the path is the subject. The composition is set up so that the viewer's eye is lead through the entire composition. There is enough variety and visual interest to hold my attention. Great colour palette established with this shot. The overall harmony with colour and texture works really well. The bench establishes a starting point for the viewer and the leading lines take you directly into the path that lead to the rhythm of the lights.

    back @Geoaskier
    With all that said, my only niggle is that a horizontal crop might be tried as there seems to be wasted space above and below. It's not terrible, and might not look good cropped horizontally as the vertical supports the the lines of the trees and lamp posts.

    I like the photo, but agree the white light is a bit bright other than that it's a nice photo

    lol just giving you some constructive criticism to help you take better photos. You did post in a feedback/critique forum afterall. I'm not hear to pat everyone on the head and say "OMG IT'S SO PRETTY!" I'm here to give honest feedback. If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen ;)

    I agree with Molsen on the framing. I personally like the comp of the shot. I don't think there is any problem with what or where to look. The light flare is a little distracting, but I don't think it ruins the shot. Nice job.

    lol your critique was to "get even" at me after I critiqued this one photo, and don't pretend like it isn't. Those photos of mine were posted over a year and a half ago. Your went waayyy back through my post history to seek out something you could add negative comments to. Pretty immature :lol:

    FWIW, I think most of the other photos on your site are pretty good.
