Greetings from the Critique Club.

Hi Glen,

You have received some quite constructive comments from voters, most of which I agree with.

Eschelar has pointed out the character of the shot and I can see from your portfolio that the look that you captured was not accidental and you have captured some strong mood elements. The muted color and grain work very well in this shot and the veil of cloud over the moon adds a focal point

Some areas for potential improvement:

You state in your comments that you couldn't quite get the location that you were after, this tells me that maybe you settled for second best and your score has suffered.

The two light sources compete for attention, it would have improved the composition to keep one or the other but not both

The highlights are a little too harsh IMO. I see that your aperture was quite open, perhaps stopping down would have helped reduce the intensity and still allowed you hit 30 Seconds.

I think that the image would have benefited from a deeper black, silhouetting the trees.

Overall I think this is an interesting photo and meets the challenge, the problem is that often good photos don't particulalrly score highly. Most voters only spend a few seconds on each image and if you don't have the WOW factor they'll click a '4' and move on. Some people also view artifacts like noise as a negative and mark down for this. Noise is not to everyones taste.

Good luck in future challenges and keep up the night photography.

Image is a bit flat for my taste, if you had boosted up the contrast somewhat I would have liked it much more.

I would have liked it better with only the moon as the light source but still good

Comment by Artifacts:
Subject and idea fine for this image. Tones in BG clouds good. It has some technical issues that are distracting. Should set a black point that makes all the trees solid black. If you desaturate yellows and reds somewhat then you could reduce the effect of the overexposed lights and moon.

A bit of noise reduction would have helped.

Comment by eschelar:
A little bit better than 'so bad it's good'...

There's a lot of really good character stuff here... grainy, B&W, selective desat to enhance that... low contrast and hazy lights...

Definitely some potential here.

Comment by Mambe:
Nice slices of lime but you could have prepared a little better the set up and the lighting to avoid the strong shadows and the reflections from a window (I suppose).
