The very bold colours make this image stand out well from the pile, should do well.

Ah, once again I get to expand on a comment I left during the challenge. For the record, I was one of your 7's.

I really love the detail in the statue. The "artificial light" you mention definitely gives the statue a wonderful, mild sepia glow. I know there are a lot of people here who repeat the "sick to death of HDR" mantra, and while I too am tired of overstructured skies and landscapes I do believe it has its place and it works here - though I'd need to see the originals to understand why you chose to use it and then leave the very distinct shadows. I suspect the HDR structuring kept folks from giving you higher marks and perhaps even just throwing a 1, 2 or 3 at it.

As I said originally, if I find one real fault with this it's the lit area to the left of the statue. The coupling of more saturated color and brightness just distracts from the real subject of the photo. It's like a flashing neon sign outside a hotel window beckoning you to pay attention to it instead of falling asleep. Had you desaturated and darkened that area I believe you would have seen 9's and possibly a 10 or two instead of capping out at 8.

Love the detail. I might have burned in the edge more and perhaps desaturated it somewhat as it's distracting as all get out. The rest is great.

I wish you hadn't told me this was a statue... I gave it a 7 (earlier), but.. I'd loved to have imagined that it was real... *sigh*

Hello from the critique club...

First I will start with the good. I absolutely love the HDR effect this has. It almost always improves a landscape. The colors are nice and vibrant. I love the clouds. To me clouds are a great extra in a landscape.

Now on to the bad, and there is not much. The tall buildings seem to lean. I like taking landscapes myself and have struggled with this prob. It's actually the 1st thing I saw while viewing this.

Overall this is a good HDR. I hope to see more from you. Happy shooting
