Comment by banmorn:
My! Well I voted at home where, apparently, my monitor is not as bright as at work. I did not find this too dark. The coloring worked for me, especially that great blue/purple againt her gorgeous auburn hair. But what caught my eye is her eye, peering at me right over the fan with that smiling, seemingly coquettish (sic) face. And as often as I look at it, that is where my attention goes. I thought you did a great job with this and gave you an 8. I am very glad that the tone of your responding message is very positive and I look forward to seeing more from you. Good luck in your future challenges!

Hey guys!!
Thanks a lot for your comments, good and bad:) I expected a better result but i guess it all comes down to what majority likes. I'll take that onboard next time.

Reminds me of my first time walking down a certain street in Asia. Oh wait, wrong type of photo. Interesting, with the shyness of the look and the colors.

Comment by Spork99:
Greetings from the Critique Club

I'll briefly talk about the technical stuff, since, based on your own comments and those you got during the challenge, you know the major problem is with sharpness.

I love the sky in this shot, too many people, when doing a cityscape like this make the sky black and the edges of the buildings get lost. Here, the overcast sky and the city's glow combine to give a surreal orange look to the sky.

From an aesthetic point of view, my eye is immediately drawn to the right half of the image, due to the pink and purple reflections on the water there and the fact that the reflections are more intense on the right side. The left half just isn't as interesting to me. If anything, you might try cropping most of the right half entirely.

The only other thing I might suggest would be to try HDR or something to expand your contrast range and keep the lights on the buildings from being blown out. It's just something to consider trying.

I don't care for the selective desat here. She looks dead, and this is kinda creepy.

I am not sure I like the lighting, or the way her skin seems almost grayish. IMO

A touch of sharpening and this would really pop! Nice choice for a card.

Comment by Pug-H:
Does that mean it's not isolated during the day?
And, of course, it's a state capital.
