Hello from the critique club.

Nice to be able to take the time to critique your image Riverside Expressway. It is not

The immediate impression is that this is an imposing picture. This is in a good way. As a veiwer I am dragged into the image, which is a good feeling.

The composition is good. It has pleasent leading lines, although the clash of these feels a little uncomfortable it is a nice challenge to the eyes and makes it interesting.

The lighting is lovely, and the colourisation used impressive, but you know that from the comments received.

To improve the votes: Not sure, I think this is a great image, and well deserving to be in the 80%.


YOU SHOULD BE PROUD. It is not your highest scoring, but it is great, and a challenge to be taken and processed.

If you would like to discuss the critique or have any comments feel free to PM me.

I've seen a lot people attempt a blue duotone, and they do a horrible job. This however is amazing!
