there is an awfull lot of atmoshpere here and the subject with the intrigueing figure is actually rather interesting but there are issues which prevent it from being the best image it could be.

the mysterious figure is merging with the shadows, the unusual flare over the streetlamp is fighting for attention and the red overall colour is not working forme, may work for others but im struggling with it and the whole lot of artifacts in the red sky. it looks like it was taken at vast iso in total darkness.

now im all for creativity and credit to you for that, because there is quite a bit about the shot i like, but the processing may well have been done better in a variety of ways.

under normal circumstances i would have suggested how to do alternatives, but the lack of data, the fact that i dont have access to the raw file would make that quite difficult without having a strarting point.

can i please suggest that if you request critique in the CG that you provide as much information as possible so the team can offer help in the right directions

I'm sorry. It's a try at something, but I must be getting old, can't really see what you were trying to achieve. Why would you want this result?
