Sunset on the streets of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

This is a simply fantastic piece! I get the feeling that, even though the street is nearly empty, it is alive and kicking with hundreds of people during the day. The lighting works well and the vignette at the bottom keeps the focus in the middle where it should be. The only issue I have is with the lights at the end of the street. They seem a little out of place to me, and the person near the scooter too, but with those minor things aside, this is a well constructed piece and a pleasure to critique. Keep up the great work!

Vision: I think you did a great job building a name from this photo. Silence of the Sun bodes well with this empty street full of sun lit color. You certainly start the mind moving before the picture hits full view because of the color of photo and name of the deviation. Nice vision here.

Originality: Its hard to be original. However, with the location you have chosen, time of day, perspective, and lack of thoroughfare you have made this a pretty original piece. I can't say that I have seen something very near to this although I have seen many street level shots.

Technique: This is where you shine through on this deviation. The perspective really makes the shot what it is. Your use of lines and the height of the camera gives the feeling of really being there. The colors are stunning as you chose the right time of day to do the shot. I think it is a bit dark but that could be the intention and its a personal preference and not a blunder in technique. Only thing in the photo that hurts my eye is the white spec on the right side in the road (under the first overhang). I actually like the bike and person there as it brings the sense back of reality. Had they not been there it would be a surreal picture. I think sometimes its good to have the opposite, especially in a busy place like Mexico. Do you have a tag you are working on? I notice you don't have one here and you certainly should be identified as you have some great talent.

Impact: I think the impact here is initial but not long lasting. By that I mean when I see it is certainly strikes a chord. Its not mind blowing but it is very good and nice on the eyes. It makes me want to take a nice vacation. This is good! Its not the type of photo that stays in my mind once I look away and start into other things.

This is certainly a very great piece of work here. It is obvious by looking at the photo that the author is very skilled and has a great eye for photography. Cheers.

BriceChallamel Featured By Owner May 17, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
I use an additional layer, shade it and multiply it on Photoshop. In this case, the very long exposure had created too much noise in the dark areas so it's also a trick to "cover the dust" ;)

Thakn you for your kind comment! :flame:
