As demonstrations of night technique, they're quite good.

Composition doesn't grab me in either, however. I can't discern the subject of the first one. The image appears tilted because the angle of perspective is different on the left and the right. The sky looks artificial, almost like it was a giant backdrop. The hazy shadow outlining the building edges is perplexing and makes it look like the setting is a miniature model.

The second, again, is a technical tour de force. But the composition fails to identify the subject for me. As a sailor, I was a bit taken by the confusion of two masts and booms at odd angles in what appeared to the one boat. Then I realized it was actually two boats. This is a minor point.

Thanks joe.

I completely agree, i feel like my technique as far as capturing what i want to capture is spot-on, exposure and processing.

the problem is, what i want to capture is not always the best thing i could have captured with the situation as it was presented.


i have to work on my composition.

I'm always **** about the pictures being too large for my video system, which is 1366 x 768 pixels. Perhaps I am not the only one that would like to see changes to the posting guidelines such that ordinary viewers can see the entire image without scrolling. This problem is exacerbated by posting landscapes in vertical format.
