This could really work, I would have cloned out the lamppost, I would have cloned out the tower block too. And maybe adjusted the white balance to make it not green or red. I always thought the D300 had an auto white balance mode. My Ixus 300 has an auto white balance, this could have helped you with the colouring of this shot. Unless you wanted it Green and red, If you did then we obviously feel very differently about what constitutes a good photograph.
Good luck with your next attempt
Thank you for your critisism, its much appreciated. However, I composed this image with the intention of including the tower block and lampost. Had I moved slightly forward and slightly to the right, the image would have not had either of these supposedly imposing subjects in it, but this is my chosen composition as I felt the grey concrete tower blocks and the switched off grey lampost added to the bleakness that the fog seemed to have brought to this usually rather busy area. My D300 does have an auto white balance mode, though I personally use the manual mode as being a HND qualified photographer, I feel I'd be a bit cheeky using auto! The colour of the shot has actually been achieved using a crossed processing action in post production. This entire image has been completely in my control, from the choice of white balance, composition right up to the post production. So there will be no other attempt at this image. But I am a great believer in personal opinion when it comes to art, so I thank you for yours.
