Greetings from the Critique Club.

Hi Jae,

Welcome to DPC. Well done on your second submission.

Wonderful rich colours here, although the whole does look a bit unnatural. The colours in the sky are remarkable, and such a contract to the lit road stretching forward. The leading lines of the road run the eye right off the image, drawing it away from your colours.

Not really sure what you have done in post-processing so the following may be off track. The colours on the water look a bit odd - the sky is all orange, but in the water the reflection contains pink and quickly transisions to blue. It just looks a bti unnatural to me (which doesn't mean it is unnatural.

It is my hope that these insights are helpful and constructive. Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions regarding this critique. And please remember to mark it "Helpful" if you found it so. Good luck with future challenges.

IMO a black border might have been nicer, but that's just me. :) I love the dramatic sky, and the lovely glowing colors against the black shadows. NIce shot!

I think there's only room for one main colour in this photo - I would get rid of the blue and make it grey.

I wish the image was larger instead of that border being there. Beautiful colors and good composition.
