Hello!
This is a critique provided on behalf of #Xpose-it

This is a lovely crisp capture, I love the clarity of the scene and the great use of light that you've taken advantage of here. There's a great vanishing point in the distance that you've used to your advantage. Instead of framing it dead in the centre, having it offset leads the eye away gently rather than harshly.

My only realy criticism would be the light in the foreground. The rest of the shot gets away with being slightly bright because it works well, but this light is detracting with its harsh graininess. It's a shame because really there is nothing you can do other than crop it out and you'd loose half the image! Perhaps next time a tripod might come in handy...?

Other than that, well done - beautiful capture.
What do you think?

Wow , I've always thought our city was so pretty at night. Love how it's so deserted yet, instead of being creepy, it just seems peaceful.

I love the vanishing point perspective. Seems like there is some optical stuff going on in the larger buildings further out. How wide was the lens that you shot this with?

As I look at it I was struggling with figuring out where to set the vertical at as the converging lines made it hard to pick what the true vertical is.

A very nice capture!

I really love the contrast between the lights and the pitch black of the sky, and the angle is very eye-catching. Gorgeous!

Simply enchanting. You've really captured the melancholy listlessness of late-night wanderings. There are multiple emotions in this shot, and it may be that I'm regarding it at a late hour myself, but I've really taken a fancy to it.
