Too dark. You have to try too hard to see what the picture is.

Couldn't agree more. Doing so destroys the progression of the thread.

That's a cool atmospheric shot--noise be damned (ie. even the noise looks good).

Thanks!! I agree on the noise. I tried changing it in the new version... but looking at the two now, I think more grain looks better.

If you turn on "image editing OK" youll likely get more helpful advice...

it really comes down to what YOU want to express. the original image while dark offers a mystery that no longer exists in later prints. no one said you had to spill the beans in every image. the viewer may want to look into the shadows to find things that may not be ordinarily seen at night. that may be part of the value in the image. of all prints on this page your original is far more interesting in my eye.

thanks for the feedback jetcode! i think, it also depends on the screen you are viewing the image on. on my laptop, unless i crank the brightness all the way up, i feel like the first image is too dark, but i definitely agree with everything you are saying.
