Critique away, this was shot at the embassy suites hotel in Napa, CA. This was done after a long day of wine tasting. I sat the camera on the hand rail of the 2nd floor of the hotel.

Nice shot, I like the way the water appears on the bottom right. Shot seems nicely exposed. What was the exposure just out of interest?

One thing I would say (but I'm no expert), is that I would have shown less of the sky, maybe filling only the top 1/3 of the frame with it.

^ Thanks, so am i. I thought it would be a good photo because it reminded me of the little town that frodo from lord of the rings was from lol. A modern version of course.

I know you probably didn't have the option being that the camera was resting on a rail, but I would like to see way more foreground and much less sky. A lower perspective might have helped.

Have you considered doing a 16:9 or maybe a 2:1 crop? The sky doesn't add much to the image.....the rest of it is very interesting.

Ahh the old hand rail. Steadiest tripod I ever owned. That's a good shot for your first time out.

Love long exposures. :) Looks good overall, but I agree with the crop comments ... would love to see more of the water/shed.

very nice photo, though I'd agree with some of the posters here, the sky takes too much space in your photo. Love the colors and the lights... the water looks nice as well, but the green came out superb.
