Went out around 2 am last night to get some pictures of my city with no people around.. never made it to downtown (need to go out again) but I ended up with this guy. Let me know what you think!

Nice shot Tevo! It's got a nice fairy-tale atmosphere to it.
I really like the balance between the trees and the lights.

Nice composition, the bare tree is sweet with all the negative space allowing the light to shine In between the branches.

Nice composition and lighting. I personally would probably clone out the lamps though, make it a little more "magical". Totally makes me think of Fern Gully :D

I see a tall husband and a fatty lady...(villain is behind too) ;)
You could have took them a bit off center
Otherwise OK

:D


I am thoroughly stumped as to where you see that.

Thanks for the input! :D

Scene lighting - the lamp in the parking lot illuminated the tree perfectly, it was quite lovely!

Thanks!

I thought about that, but I was trying to convey a sense of industrialism / man-made~ness juxtaposed with the tree and the green. I felt the lamp looked manmade, and was relevant subject matter, while also functionally lighting the tree. (it also shows that I didn't just abuse the Dodge tool :p)

I dig this. That little bit of green is such a nice, subtle pop! Almost like non-cheesy, natural selective coloring. Very cool.

That's what I was going for! I have a few shots that are just natural selective color, and I think it works well :D

Thanks<3
