On a business trip to Melbourne, and am excited to spend this next week getting camera and PP skills!
I spotted this path on the way to the office, and on the walk back to the hotel, set up, and waited for someone to walk down for a human touch to a plain path... Added some light streaks in, and changed a little colour to suit a pallete I was after.. Being colourblind, I always find this super challenging so any comments on this are appreciated. One thing I'm thinking of doing is removing the (green?) lamp-post on the left.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance,
Ronen

The dark green lamppost on the left is a bit distracting and toning it down would help. Removing it possible but quite a challenge I suspect.

The light posts very much detract from this picture. I think the added light beams look......added....not at all natural. The overall color looks kind of surreal as well. Maybe that's what you were after. This one just doesn't do it for me.

Tis a stellar site...might suggest that you shoot at different times of day.
The streaks are overdone, green posts gotta go, maybe more contrast and/or saturation.

Did a quick (and nasty) run on a touchpad with photoshop at my office to see what it would look like without the pole (at least the bottom part).

Looks better I agree.. I will revisit it properly with a mouse to try and clone it out properly.

Thanks
