Really called "Le Diable Vert", (and it is really completely red inside), this is one of the more trendy bars in Montreal. Taken during my day on the road. I had no tripod with me, so I just rested the camera on one of the barstools, and used the timer.

Critique Club Comment

Composition : There are a lot of nice strong lines leading deep into this shot. I found the one table(sort of) in the front a little distracting, but there isn't much you could have done about it. There is a nice repetition of 3's here too... The groups of 3 lights leading to the back wall. Nicely done :)

Exposure/Lighting : Very nicely done. Especially considering you had no tripod. I like the shadows.

Focus : A little soft overall, but certainly not a problem (at least for me :) )

Post Processing : So this was a red bar? I never would have known it if you hadn't said it, which tells me your post processing was successful.

Emotion/Challenge : Nailed the challenge. It didn't have as much Wow as it could have, but I don't know what is missing.

Opinion : I enjoyed this shot and was a little surprised not to see it place higher.

pretty decent photo. the blues and the purples work well. was this the actual lighting condition of the bar or was this altered slightly? something about the composition seems a little cluttered to me. but i think it's worth a 7

Very cute,.... too bad there isn't a band playing... maybe the bar is blue because there are no people?! :-( I like it a lot. NIce job and good luck!
