Greetings from the Critique club. After viewing your photo and trying to decide what I like and what I think could be better here are my conclusions. I think that you have portrayed a fear to the viewer well through parts of your photo. The subject against the fence alone at night portrays that very well. It sets a mood and the lighting is well done perhaps a single light on the subject could have helped. I think that the cars are a bit distracting and take away from the "alone" theme. Had the cars not been in the photo I think it would have done a better job of portraying the feeling of being truly alone. Rules of thirds are pretty well followed, however choosing a different spot without the top post of the fence going off view could have helped. Perhaps cropped the fence top post off so all you can see is the fence across the screen. The shot is a little dark, I think that perhaps the lights on the cars may have messed with exposure a little. Overall I think you did a pretty good job, and am kind of surprised that it didnt score a little higher. Good luck.

I like this shot and I love Night photography but I think this needed to be exposed just a bit longer. This looks like about a 200th of a second, maybe 1 second would have brought out the sky a bit more. Keep up the good work.

I think this shot is a bit too dark to convey all the feelings.

Interesting idea of juxtaposing auto and autophobia. Better exposure of the person would help, and I think that the fence doesn't help.

Just doesn't convey "alone" with all those cars down there. Fence doesn't do it for me.
