I really like this...but IMO I think a bit more cropping could really go along way with this...the cart return on the left adds nothing IMO...and would give such a cleaner view of the Parking Cart...nice job

Simple but nice. I like the mist.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives : This is definitely an image that benefits from a longer look. It took me a while for eye to find the tarmac cracks but once it did I liked how my eye was guided along the white line to the trolley. I really enjoy the way the light diffuses into the light fog and how the lights in the distance begin to offer clues as to the scale of the parking lot. I don't know if you've applied a vignette or that is the way the light from the lamp has fallen. It works though - perhaps more so because I don't know if it is 'natural' or applied.

Critical stuff: Although I can see why you have kept the structures on the left side in the frame to add context - I'm not fond of them: I like the simple construction of the rest of the image to have it interfere.

Overall: Very well made image.

great mood photo. The lonely shopping cart, with the misty air at night, that since of being forgotten or abandoned. Thanks for sharing.

I'm sorry, but I'm just not finding this photo interesting at all. MAybe if you concentrated more on the cart and the nearby light, and removed all the other distracting elements it would be been nicer.

I'm a big fan of this kind of shot, nicely spotted & well captured.
