    Interesting photo!

    Kinda scary if you ask me.
    Doesn't feel good looking at it

    Clearly the sky effects are your current theme.

    This one made me pause until I had it straight in my mind, but yes as a clearly adjusted shot the effect is to my mind rather intriguing and interesting.

    Like this one a lot

    For me there is too much black space above the image.
    I like the water apparently flowing into (or out of) the black space in bottom right.
    The very red sky is too overdone for me and detracts from the image as a result.
    The subject matter is intriguing.

    Neat image. As Adrian suggested, I think it could be made even better if you cropped it not far above where the light from the bridge stops. Pretty intense orange, but again, this is a matter of style.

    Would be great to hear your thoughts all the replies to this (and the previous photo you had posted). I think it would be helpful for all of us to understand more about your perspective. Thanks.

    Hey kaskais,

    Good to see you reply.
    Do not worry about your English.

    First it seems good enough to deliver the message.
    Second the McQ is not grading anyone.
    (But you never know when the pop quiz will hit you )

    Keep those photos coming.

    Two thirds of your pic is totally dark and one third is bright,infact the the river is bright i find the sky very artificial, but its attractive..the serenity of the pic is overwhelming.personally i would have preferred a equal balance between the black and color parts of the pic........the foreground and the visual depth is very good.....i like this pic for its instant attraction
