I love "discovering" people (who've been here a while) by seeing their name in a thread and checking them out. This is an awesome image.

many thanks - I recently re-shot this one from the same location with my new camera/lens and did some gradients - made it more of an angry sunset look with reds - and took everyones advise and cloned out the lamp post (actually, I was a tad intimidated by all of the DPC rules at the time and thought I couldnt do that! - oh well).

This is a wonderful photo, evocative of another time, which I quite liked. I had hoped it would score higher but then again, 6.3xxx is a very good score. This shows me you've got talent and a good eye. I hope to see more great work from you.

Love your treatment because it matches the subject well.

I like the contrast between the sharp shapes of the building and the rugged sky. The tones and colours you have used really help to set the scene.

I wish the lamp post was not in the shot but I love the sepia tone with the pinkish sky - nice work!!

Great scene, though it's kind of hurt by the street light. I would suggest moving to get it out of the shot.

The buildings seem to really jump out. I like it.

Nice work, though I'm not sure I care for the pink tones in the sky. I think this would have worked as straight sepia.

Amazing photo - beautifully put together!

Very interesting processing. I think I want to clone out the left street light ...

I'd like it more without the light on the left, I find it very distracting, but other than that I think it's fantastic.

Excellent photo in so many ways, but the pink hue in the sky is really annoying. I really wish it wasn't there.

Of course the street light is bothersome too, but I'm sure it is unavoidable. 7

Gave it a 6, two things that kept me from going higher as I really like the lighting/texture on the buildings. Why did you include the lightpost there, it´s sticking out like a sore thumb? Secondly, the pink hue on the clouds draws my eye there, I would have wanted to see it with the sepia toning everywhere.

Great processing make this an interesting shot

It would be a great image if it wasn't for the lamp on the left. in my opinion it i doesn't fit in the the overall scheme, and is really distracting.

the lamp on the the left is distracting

Love the inclusion of the street lamp and bird in flight. Not totally sold on the red, but it does an another layer here. Nifty shot.

Gosh! I wish that light fixture weren't there... *sigh* Without it, the image is perfect, in my opinion. With it... I just want to move my head so it's out of the shot. The sky is wonderful... the processing top-notch. (not voting yet)
