Greetings from the Critique Club!

Wow, this is something else. A supermoon rising over a crazily tilting cityscape and a suited model with a light fixture for a head holding a lightbulb. Definitely searching for something! I gave this a 7 in voting. Glad I did. I like more abstract ideas brought to life like this.

I think the main problem here is more technical than anything. All the light sources are from behind, yet the model is lit from the front right (shadow cast to the left and rear). In reality the opposite would be true, the shadow should fall mostly to the front right on the ground ahead of them. Maybe a blending layer to help the model fit into the street scene? I think this is what pulled your score down. I tend to make the same sort of mistakes too so Ah feel yer pain ;-)

But you still finished in the Top Ten so it's not all that bad, and for the most part it's an interesting image and well done. Keep up the good work!
