Greetings from the Critique Club!

This is a lovely shot that met the challenge and then some! I love the dragon in this shot and the blue tint that runs throught the statue is very unique. But the lighting leaves me wanting more. Maybe if you could have come in from the sides and top to really help highlight those blue tints.

The black background is perfect but the cloth underneath the dragon is distracting to me. I think you were going for the oriental feel with the pattern but I think the dragon would have done that better by himself.

The cropping and composition are great. Overall a very nice shot.

Good Luck In Future Challenges!

Looks a little flat. Some more creative lighting (I would try from the left side) would help bring out the wonderfull textures and detail.
