Greetings from the Critique Club!

The first though that comes to mind when I see this and read your comments is "You shot this handheld?!" Haha...you deff. have steadier hands than I do.

First off....what I think could be improved upon; Well...to be honest with you there isn't much about this photo that can be changed to make it better. As stated in an earlier comment...I think a different perspective might have worked a little better. Maybe just shifted to the right a little..so the red lighted trees in the middle are a little less in the middle. That's really the only thing I can see that could be improved on.

What I like about your photo; Pretty much everything...Especially the lights:P Your depth of field is wonderful, the trees in the foreground on either side really brings the photo together. Everything is perfectly in focus and very sharp, especially for a night shot. Your composition is great also...The building is perfectly positioned in the background and it's beauty is really brought out by the Christmas lights all around it. A very festive shot indeed...

Overall...a great photo totally deserving of the score it recieved. Congrats...and Keep up the good work!

Caleb

I first viewed this picture on my work monitor and thought it was great, but now that I have viewed it on a monitor that is calibrated correctly all I can say is stunning. Well done and congrats on you high placement.

Wow! What a beautiful photo. The reds might be a tad too vivid (for my tastes), but again, great shot and fits the challenge too. 8

This is a most wonderful nightshot. I am not sure "where" that is, but you might want to offer/sell it to them for advertising, postcard, etc use....

I like this. It's has a fun holiday spirit to it. I might've shot from a slightly diff. perspective so that the one clump of red trees isn't quite so centered. But overall, it's clear and nicely done for a low light shot. 7
