Comment by Schmeldontino:
Lots of very nice leading lines! I love the feeling conveyed by the person and the dog, they have a vivacious interaction with each other and the beautiful landscape in which they have found themselves. The muted color scheme works very well for this image, as well.

Comment by photokariangel:
This is Kari Ann, greetings from the Critique Club:

composition: the leading lines of the bridge, the pathway, and all the vertical lines really draw your eye to the stranger in the composition, with that being said, i love the addition of the man, he is an essential part of the picture, and adds interest

color: sepia tone is managed perfectly. no overdoing it here.

contrast: the deep contrast really works well, offsetting the subject and adding emphasis to the leading lines

focus: the background being a tad blurry dosent bother me, but for some it may. i feel it helps focus the eye more on the man.

depth of field:again, this is a personal taste, but i like the shallower depth of field, some may find it distracting though.

lighting: beautiful lighting, well done.

other: i love this photo, its so solemn yet portrays the message of hope. i agree with other commenters though, the white on the top of the photo could have been cropped out to help emphasize the lines to the man. but its nothing major, just a small improvement to an already great photo. congrats on your new personal best as well, this is definitely worthy of it. If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me anytime.
-Kari Ann

Comment by bspurgeon:
Read through your comments, clearly the mood was well presented via the subject and your toning. I agree that the image is very interesting and intriguing, and I scored it a 7 because I love the mood, but the composition is potentially holding it back from a broader appeal. I agree that the horizon is splitting the photograph in half giving the image a slightly static feeling, and then it's tilted, which may be a function of the cloud layer. However, for me it works, and I love the feeling of the clouds creeping in over the horizon. The bright whites in the top right corner probably could be burned down, as it attracts the eye immediately dragging the viewer out of the frame. We may not think of this immediately, but I do believe that it limits the viewers enjoyment whether they no it or not. Finally the PP is a bit obvious in that I can see a trail from the layer mask over the lamppost. If I noticed trail over the lamp during voting I would have scored it lower, probably a 5. Obviously, we are nit picking, but also offering reasons why it may have score at 5.4. I will leave you this...I still like it despite "seeing" things I did not readily see during voting! The mood grabbed me and kept me.

ETA: spelling

Comment by cpanaioti:
I like the vintage look to the image however, a few things stand out for me that could use improvement:

1)The horizon feels tilted (though may be the mist) even though the lamp post is straight. Just gives it a feel of being unbalanced.

2)The horizon is pretty much through the middle which makes the image very static.

I'm wondering if a view along the railing (keeping the lamp post in the foreground) could of added some needed dynamics to the image.

I didn't score this one but probably would of scored it a 4 or 5.

Comment by Azrifel:
Didn't vote on this one, but I would have given a 3 or a 4 (I am leaning towards the low scores in this challenge). The reason is that <<<to me>>> the subject matter is uninteresting, exposure and composition not great and the toning and mood a little bit depressing.
Composition: It is not so great to divide an image exactly in half with the horizon. If the lantern is the subject, I want to see its foot. If the people are the subject, they are not very visible and put away in a corner. If the city is the subject, landscape would work better.
Exposure: Sky to bright vs a too dark foreground. Fill flash, shadow/highlight to get details out of the shadows or layer multiple exposures to bring it out more.
Overall it is simply not so interesting.

But if you are happy with it, that's great.

Comment by AP:
its definitely a cool shot and your processing gives it a distinct mood, but other than that the picture is not extremely original or grabbing... not much for the eye to hold onto, I think that's why your score was a tad low, though i did give it a 7

Nicely done. This would make a terrific pinhole image. I guess I'm seeing things now.

Comment by bassbone:
the deep rich tones of the sepia give this a very gloomy look
