Took this by a park near my house. Always liked the contrast of this old park and the old houses (not seen in this photo) against the modern monsters of Tokyo

The effect would have been more significant if you had brought more color into the lower right - more than just the green. Perhaps everything lit by those 2 street lights? Still a nice image, though!

This feels unbalanced to me, when I say that I mean the whole shot feels tilted to the left. Still you met the challenge well and I like how the color melts into the b/w. Well done.

I thought at first that I didn't care for this, and that the title made little sense. However, the longer I looked, the more it made sense, and the better I liked it. The little pocket of peace under the trees doesn't reach out and 'wow', but it certainly makes the picture. The only nit-picky thing I can say is that the horizon seems very slightly off (a degree, maybe two) in the verticality of the buildings. 8.

interesting take on the selective desat theme ... I like how the green just fades into the blackness of the night ... wish you'd left some of the other things touched by the street light in color also ... 7

I like the concept, but my eyes are jumping between the colours trees and the big buildings and I don't know where to look.

Interesting choice. One would expect the skyscrapers to be in color...Good call.
