This shot was taken during my last night abroad in Luxembourg. I didn't have a tripod with me so this is the best I could do, but I think it looks great they way it is. Very eerie, as it was in person.

A visit from the Critique Club :)

Wow, I really like the atmosphere of the photo. I think this is an excellent photo. You managed to capture the scene as you say it was in real life. The only minor complaint that I have is that black blob that looks like a garbage container seems to add another "person" into the photo. I love the repeating lights and the lines. The placement of the person is almost perfect too but maybe move him a tiny bit more to the left.

Congrats on a very nice black and white shot! I really love the mood you have created with this image. The foggy notion here is quite impressive. I'm not sure if there would have been a better way to create some more contrast in this photo or not, but I think it would be a great improvement if the light sources in the scene were a little brighter. I don't know if you could have opened up your aperture more or not.... great shot :) = 9 - setzler

Excellent composition, actually I think this image is perfect in every way. The best I have seen on this site. An 11!

Nice fog shot. Good eerie feeling to it. I get your challenge, but I was hoping for more "out of this world" type strange-ness. (score unaffected) Very nice.

i like the idea and i really like fog shots, but my eye lands on the man on the right and he looks more like a businessman carrying a coat and a briefcase than a stranger.

Great job! Way to meet the challenge! I also like the fact you weren't afraid to shoot in subdued lighting and poor conditions. I find these conditions usually make for great pictures.

A mysterious image. I love the mist and the figure in the background. Excellent.

This certainly has an eerie tone. Well done.

Good mood and good capture.

a fine photo. Very "Stieglitz".....

Other than being a bit dark, this is a great fog shot. I like the perspective, lights and two forms in the distance.

A little grainy but very interesting. I like it. Perfect in sepia tone. High score is coming.

Looks like the beginning scene of a murder mystery. Awesome shot. a 10 in my book. PTL

Interesting idea, has a nice atmosphere.

I like this shot, very mysterious. Not sure that I would say that it looks out of place or portrays a Srange Land but it is very appealing.
