** Hello from the Critique Club **

What a fantastic shot! Congratulations on your ribbon!

Composition
This composition fits well. The black space around the pillars really help to isolate and draw the focus to the light source. What a fantastic job you did capturing the reflection as this allowed you to get a vantage point that you would not normally be able to get. This is certainly a prime example of how the best angle for a photo can't be seen by standing up! The group of 3 lights was a good choice as we normally relate to objects in threes. The texture of the lamps really help to accentuate the light itself. Finally, what a fitting object for the challenge!

Technical
The exposure on this photograph is perfect. You did an excellent job of balancing the tonal range! It is because of the balance that the texture was brought out. Nice job. Excellent depth of field as well.

Congratulations. I was glad to see you on the front page. You were one of the very first people that welcomed me to DPC and gave me great constructive critique on my first challenge entry back in 2006. I never forgot it and appreciated very much. Again, congratulations. Awesome photo.

I like the simplicity and the shades, but I find the border a distraction from the otherwise clean appeal of the photo.

Back to comment: This image has an optical illusion aspect to it that required an extra second or two to see the squares for what they are. Once I saw it, the illusion went away and I could not see again as I did for the very first time. True amazing and worthy of a 10. Hope to see it on the front page.
