Im interested in what you personally think of these two shots. No gawkers please. If youre looking then please say something good, bad or indifferent. Thanks.

Both good shots, showing two different kinds of cold. The first one looks cold and damp (reminds me of Louisiana) and the second one is cold and crisp. Might try cloning out or down the two lights in the right hand background, they tend to catch the eye.

Ah you do have a good eye Calicajun. I thought about cloning out the lights on the right. However, that is the house owners garage and his black vehicle you can just see the front of. Im going to give him the picture so I thought he might like a nite shot of his whole property. This is the house I shot and won a prize for in the local Town photo contest. Its my favorite house in the whole area. It looks so warm and inviting and he maintains it very well.

Surfing from one image to another as a 'free gawker' nowI am badly caught:lol:

My opinion is that; though the second image looks crisper, I'd prefer the wet and misty atmospherereinforcingthe quitefitting setting of 1930's!!

The first shot seems noisy and soft, shot straight on with nothing

much on either side of the building adding tothe scene.



The second is much better less obvious noise and crisper

as well as having other things in shot on either side of the house.

Well Bahadir the first shot of the steakhouse is rumored to be a money laundering place by organized crime so the old car is appropriate. There isnt much on other side however, on the right are the store lights of a small plaza visible in the winter when the trees are naked. I was particularly focusing on the business and not interested in extraneous scenery. In the case of the house I was interested in the overall property at night with particular focus on the lights. The owner has good taste in the appearance of his place all year round. Subtle lights and not too gawdy. There are many houses which I hope to photograph which look more like Mexican brothels (not that there is anything wrong with that) than actual houses people live in. They take out loans to pay their hydro bill.
