de Grey's solicitors on the corner of Blake Street and Dean Court. I haven't ever thought about the photographic possibilities of this building before. Well spotted.

Greetings from the critique club :)

Sorry but this is going to be a bit short, I don´t really have much to say about the image. It meets the challenge in my opinion, no doubt.

However, it´s pretty dark, too dark for my taste and there is well frankly not really something in the photograph that is interesting. Sure, there are people walking there but this is just another shopping street to me. I would vote this a 4 for those reasons. It´s not really a bad photograph but compared to the majority of the entries in this challenge, it simply doesn´t impress me.

Try using a longer shutter next time and use the histogram for metering, what you see on the back off the camera screen in nightshots can often be very misleading. Also I find it much better to take nightshots in the city not really by night but rather around sunset or sunrise, you have then an hour or half an hour window where you still have a hint of light in the sky and that often makes a very big difference.

Kind regards from Iceland, Lárus.

Hello from the Critique Club,

Let me start off by expressing my sympathy for the loss of your friend. You choose a very tough subject to sell in a challenge at DPC. Suicide makes people uncomfortable, as well it should. Regarding your image, I think you did a great job communicating your message. There is no emotion more extreme than taking your own life. Reading through the comments you received, I see that people were split between liking the B&W and wishing it was in color. I think the choice of B&W was a good one and served the image well. I think you might have scored a little better with a different conversion method to make it B&W. I prefer the channel mixing method explained in the DPC tutorial by fotomann_forever. This method would give you the option of adjusting between the red, green, and blue channel to make the blood show up better and to provide better contrast in the rest of the image. The more you boost the red channel above than the green and blue, the more the blood will lighten up. Give it a read and play around a bit.

If you want to send me a color version of the image, I would be happy to try a conversion or two on it to show you what could be done. Send me a PM if you have any questions regarding this critique.

Tim

Dark, but it portrays the mood well. A bit contrasty.
