    I like the image, although it leaves me wishing I could see more sky above the torch as I find it ends a little too abruptly and with more space would add more presence.

    Does the image give away that this was taken at night time? I assume it does.

    with the extreme angle and the massive contrast.. can hardly make out any real detail..... and yes..it is obvous it is artificially and harshly lit.

    With my camera, I tend to find that the less contrasted it is, the more noise that's visible in the photo, especially when it comes to images shot at night time.

    One of the disadvantages I've found with my fuji. Using the flash makes things look even weirder. =/

    So I take the blame, even though my camera is incapable of doing what you need it to do (needing better lenses, better focus options, etc) when it comes to certain shots?

    As said, a lot of detail is hidden. At first glance I thought this was depicting some people in bed ;) ....

    i tried brighten up the image...then i found its present look is better...not because of noise( it is there of course) but what is seen at the bottom all look a messy lot...presently it has some enigma; so on comparison, i like this :D

    I've also noticed that there's a distinct brightness difference between those who have laptops, and those who have certain desktops.

    There's also a color differences from time to time, for those heavier saturated pictures. On some screens they look over saturated, while on others they look saturated, but not over saturated.

    I calibrate my monitor.. so it is currently set to what is accepted as the standard brightness, contrast and color range. That way I am consistent with all others who calibrate their monitors (quite a few on here, as a matter of fact!). ;)
