This is a very neat shot Susan. The wind blowing the tree really adds an erie effect.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

It seems I am the designated critiquer for you :)

At first I thought it might Art's picture. I saw the tree as a godzilla for a second! Also reminded me that I forgot my tripod, I'll never let that down haha.

I think that the tree might have been a love it or hate it feature, you know how fickle DPCers can be about blur. I thought the lightpost was great. The only thing I would have done differently is to take this from a little higher angle so that the building in the background is shown more above the railing and fills the sky a bit more.

You received a 6.2 average from the commenters though and ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' posthumous liked it so you know you reached some people.

If you have any questions click here to message me!


Oh and edited to add, I love ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Yo_Spiff's comments haha

Well I only gave this a 9 but I suppose I should have combated all of the ridiculously low votes and gave this a 10. This shot is great on so many levels. Love it, and if I had an award I would give one to you but alas I do not. So I will do this instead and post it on the Posthumous Ribbons, Part IV thread but you are probably already there. Good job.

Grog say Snarfles robbed at spearpoint. Grog see creative use of blur. Send Thag and Kron to kill low voters. Skins of trolls keep female warm in cold time.

I find the motion from the tree to be more of a distraction than interesting. I do like the foreground exposure and tone of the photograph.
