Two Lamp Posts at Victoria Harbour, at sunset. I like the red tinted clouds contrasting against the blue sky & the diagonal lead in line at left.

Hi Cris,

wonderful clouds. They really make great contrast with the blue sky. Well captured moment.

Composition and POV are really nice. Colours as well.

I hope you have great start of the New Year,


Hi Chris,
Perfect shot of two lamp posts with BG warm color.

Very nice colors Chris. Though I wish the FG area are more focus :D


Hello Chris,

Great perspective, beautiful colors and an excellent work!
Congratulations and TFS.

Happy New Year, Chris.
Best wishes you you for 2009.
A good year to change your good, but old Pentax, for a new Digital Reflex.
Yesterday I saw, the price of a Nikon D80 with lens, for about 460 euro. More than Half, of one year ago.!
Cheers from Jan

Beautiful well crafted shot Chris.
Love the orange glow in the sky and reflected in the water.
Very interesting lamp posts. Great POV.
Well done.

that colour of the sky and its reflection on the water is really beautiful, Chris. it overshadows the two lamp posts as the main objects here. nice POV too.

Hi Chris,
A very happy 2009 to you my friend.

The FG i sa bit too dark IMO, but still it is a nice photo.


Nice use of compositional elements here Chris.

Maybe it's just me but the lamp-posts don't seem to be properly vertical, perhaps this shot could've used a slight anticlockwise rotation? In the process, you could also have cropped out that half-building on the left edge of the frame, IMO it is a little messy to leave it there?

Well balanced levels and good saturation.


hello Chris,

another one of my fav. here the street lights.. not that sharp capture in one of the lamp post but still lovely to see it.. great backdrop though.. tfs..

regards, terry

Hello Chris! Nice street lamps. Nice pair. Good background. Very good capture. Beautiful delicate colours. Well done!

Hi Chris,
Very good composition,feliz 2009.

Excellent composition and great colour although I prefer the concrete block on the bottom left to be ommited.
Maybe it's just me but I think it's not necessary to be there.
