Good work Tommy! I did end up going with a shot I took that night, but one taken while we were in Kings Park, not of it. My shots of this didn't turn out quite as nice as this one.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Very interesting color here. There's a lot of potential with this subject, but I think there's a couple areas where the photograph could be improved.

First, you've picked up a bit of light pollution in the sky. You may notice a dark brownish tinge to the sky. If not, then you may need to calibrate your monitor. This can be leveled away pretty easily.

In addition, the vast area of sky above the tree line is probably unnecessary. I would recommend cropping close to but a little above the top of the trees, giving a panorama-like composition. In my opinion, this fills the frame with your subject and gives the overall image a more dynamic feel.

Finally, you might consider cloning out some of all of the bright white lights in the foreground. I believe these distract the viewer from the main subject. Getting rid of these would also allow you to level up the trees a bit, making them brighter and giving the overall image more punch.

Very cool colors! They're a little wild... but I like the contrasts. Good shot.

Lots of dark on the top half of the image. Otherwise nice and colorful!

An interesting capture. There are areas of sensor dust to the right of the image.

everything is just coming across sort of muddy on my monitor. composition could use some work-the slat doesn't add anything for me.
