    Long Exposure shot on a semi foggy Night, any critiques would be AWESOME.

    I personally love it. The lighting is so dynamic, dark foreground and all. Is there anything in particular you are looking to have critiqued?

    The picture looks very "warm", is that how it looked naturally or is that digital?

    I like the composition, but IMO, the color is all off because you had to do a long exposure, it happens.

    The tones in the bottom left by the trees, are really muddy and have a blue hue to them, so by changing the levels a wee bit, it took care of it.

    Usually when it’s foggy, things look a bit greyer, so I went into photochop and decreased the saturation to make it look more convincing. The sky was still too bright, so I used the burn tool to make it a bit darker, and then used the dodge tool a bit to lighten up the building on the far right.

    This was the result:

    Include the entire streetlamp on the right since its one of the major elements in the shot. It almost looks too light, too much like it was taken at night. It needs a darker feel
