i think you could work on making the scene stick out a little more.. the contrasty verticals from the building behind really play tricks on the eyes here..

Works for me.

The verticals make it nice and dynamic, the buildings are sufficiently out of focus that the eye cannot linger there too long.

Composition is spot on, with the diagonals of the pole and the placement of the lights.

Colours are great, the yellow and red contrast beautifully, and the subtle shading of the birds and the unmentionable stuff on the pole work well too, certainly don't "clean it up".

Original treatment of a city detail. Anyone else seen a shot like this? Nope didn't think so.

Nice to have you back, hope you had a good break.

Thanks, Dustin, Craig.

I could blur the background a bit. Maybe could use some more opinions on that. Dont want to make anyone dizzy?

Ok so will leave the pole... as is.

Thanks for your contributions guys.

maybe just enough to soften the edges a bit.. i do like the composition, its just i can't follow the pole without getting distracted where it meets the verticals..
