Greetings from the Critique Club

When this image popped up on my screen in the random selection that we get here at the Critique Club, I thought "oh, this is the one I liked!" and sure enough, my vote was one of your four 10s. So, I'm going to be a bit prejudiced about critiquing this image.

I loved the dark, ominous mood of this well composed image. And if you did it handheld, more power to you. It is as crisp as it needs to be to maintain that mood. If I had to nitpic, (and it would be a nitpic) I'd suggest that if you had composed your shot to eliminate the lights at the right border, it would have eliminated an unnecessary attention getter.

Other than that, your score must have been a matter of personal like or dislike for our voters, as the image meets the Challenge perfectly and is technically and artistically well done (IMO).

Keep up the good work.

Thanks for every one that voted for me. :)

I realy wanted a different angle for this shot, but it was not posible handheld to get it sharp.

I had a similar idea for this challenge but I almost got myself arrested. I probably should have gotten permission :)

Ah and there they sleep... I am not sure about this one it is interesting but a triflle to dark to get to me...

Nice use of ambient lighting. A tripod probably would have helped with the motion blur. It (the motion blur) isn't bad, but it is noticable. Nice composition - a little too dark for my tastes... maybe a star filter for the street lamps just to kick it up a notch. Also maybe a closer crop to keep the focus on the buses instead of the dead grass etc.

Love it :) What about cropping right to the front of the far bus, giving them impression that they keep going? (would get rid of the lights too)

Cool perspective. I think it would help if you had cropped out the lights on the right. They pull your eye away from the busses.

good idea and perspective :)

I like the vanishing lines. Good capture of the early morning mood. Maybe a little closer to sunrise would have been even better.

Thats a LONG line of buses. Where is this taken?
