cropped and rotated slightly. converted to b/w in channel mixer.

this is a shot of a temporary art installation looking down market street at the indiana state capitol.

it was taken at 10:30pm, if you're interested. not exactly "late," but it was a school night. :)

i had to set up the tripod between the legs of another statue to get this shot. even homeless people were looking at me funny.

Not a bad Idea but this image really needs some contrast boost, it seems severly flat. Also, I can´t help but wonder if this hadn´t been more interesting in colour, those nighttime colours can be quite nice but that´s always just a personal taste so ignore me if you dissagree. Anyway, the composition is pretty good and if you had increased the contrast somehow (curves for example) it could have been a good shot but as it is I find it quite mediocre and gave it a 5.

I like the humour

Effective composition

cool subjects! Great settup. I would only change the street lights to stars by shutting the apurature ( longer exposure). 9

I actually would have liked this photo even better without the little See/speak/hear no evil guys.

I would have liked this better without the little guys in the foreground...I might just be boring, but I love the shot.

Nice exposure. I had problems with a large building where the light levels were low expect for the dome and it wanted to be over exposed.

The three statues at first were a little annoying but when I noticed what they were and what they were facing I laughed. I wish the street lights were not so bright but their rays add a little to the shot. Great tones on the main building. Good shot and good luck

Funny and cute. The building seems slightly out of focus, however; try a smaller aperture.

Interesting. I'd like to see a bit more contrast. Fun shot.

Good details all the way through. Just my preference, the lights are a bit harsh.

Great DOF. Everything looks sharp. I like the updated wise monkeys.

This looks awesome. I almost did mine in black and white because I love black and white night shots. But mine didn't lend itself to black and white as well as this one does. This is great.

great composition love the here no, see no, and speak no evil in the foreground, It is almost like two images in one. great work 8
