Editing to resize and play around with contrast. I haven\'t used Photoshop before but found out the university I attend has it - so I was messing around to see what I could do with my picture. It looks worse than the original but it was fun.

Too dark, and I see no central motiv there, and also no interesting scene...

Too blurred, too grey, too uninspiring. Sorry.

Some potential in the lines here, but the lack of focus renders the image uninteresting. The car reflections are distracting. Try pp sharpening to help this unsteady shot.

Respectable shot but it lacks any point on interest.

This needs a focal point.

It's such a shame this hasn't worked like you'd hoped. It's just gone to a grainy grey and lost the dramatic aspect that I bet you saw when you shot it.

The reason I'm not scoring this paricularly highly is that I don't find the subject particularly interesting. Nothing really jumps out at me.

Kind of a hazy lok.

A bit too fuzzy, but i like the lighting

I'm unsure what the focus of the shot is. The street light seems to be the only highlight area and the tones seem washed out and a little drab. It would have worked better for me if there was a main subject of the photo to focus on.
