One of the ways I judge images and vote is as follows: do I think the processing effect lends itself well to the image?

In this case the answer is no. I would have loved to have seen this with subtler processing with perhaps the liberal saturation boost that is here if that's what you're looking for. I think a strong sharp contrasted image would have scored much better.

However, this is just my opinion. I don't know what you were trying to achieve. If it was this you did it excellently. I really do like the perspective used here.

DPC is hardly a true to the art contest. It's all about clear, simple, easy to view photos that have sharp detail and great color.

:)

Shoot what you love and don't let this place dictate how you do it.

FWIW, this image strikes me more as digital art than a photograph. There are lots of cool elements here and it does like an interesting photo, with the fisheye and long exposure etc.

Keep up the good work, just go easy on the HDR! :-)

Depending on how you define "success", you got feedback as to whether folks love it or hate it, a fair amount of comments. I would say this was a successful pic. Just my humble opinion though :)

Personally ...I like it...I'm wondering if the DPC HDR haters will feel the same !

Cool processing. Makes me think of a water color drawing. Like the super wide angle.

Love the fisheye look. Contrast seems a bit soft but that might be just me.

What fun. It has an almost cartoon feel. The fish eye really lends itself to it as well. I like it.

From a subjective point of view, much too overdone in the post-processing. From a technical, issues with haloing around the buildings and excessive noise in some areas. Composition is fine, although as presented the ultra bright red to the right dominates. A photo worth revisiting, I feel.

Nice scene, but I find it to be way overcooked.
