I really liked the first shot, but I thought the headlights were a bit distracting... I edited it a little bit, hope you don't mind. Also recropped it and adjusted the contrast a tad.

not a problem.. that is why i have the edit ok..

now as to my eye..

the photo is special to me because of the extra lights in view..

if there isn't any light up above the subjects the look is too plain for me..

but your version has a clean studio look to it.. - i don't have a studio and really don't like studio looking shots.. though i wish i had one for winter use..

Headlights make the shot. The edit without is nice, but that's all it is, just nice. With the headlights it's fantastic and tells a story, some kind of story, to the viewer.

Great job, Phamster. I'm a big fan of your creativity and I always look forward to seeing what you're going to come up with next!

I definitely like it better with the headlights than without; I think it gives the photo a lot more depth, and makes it a more interesting view.
