    The City at Dusk

    I took this shot this evening around dusk. I was aimimg for some remnants of colour in the sky as well as some city lights. I would be interested to hear what you think of the composition and how it works in general thanks. Pls click on image for best viewing.

    Dave, when I opened this in max size in lyte box, the rhs was off the screen. I think it looks better without the foliage and lamps.

    Dave, that's a great photo, wonderful colours and reflections.
    I tried a minor crop to take out the first lamp post and the handrail on the bottom right.
    Try it if you like and see what you think.
    Cheers, Greg

    I think it works very, very well, except .............. that closest street light. It's the first thing that grabs attention when you first see the image.

    In my view, take that lamp out and you have a beauty.

    Hi Dave,
    great shot, but I agree with the guy's regards the lamp & hand-rail.
    This is a minor issue to what is a very good picture.
    Cheers

    Hi Dave, I probably would of framed the photo the same way you did but I have to agree with the above posts. I do like the photo but maybe the lamplight does take away from that gorgeous touch of sunset. ....Bob

    Thanks Greg, Greg, Donald, John and Robert. Point taken about the street lamp, I'll have a look at either cropping or cloning it out.

    It's nice to have a photo that the one simple fix mentioned by everyone is the only thing that's needed.

    The revised image proves all of us right and proves you to be a wonderful photographer. Better yet, toggling back and forth between the two images in the Lytebox brings new meaning to the term, "magic lantern."
