Your Photo: Our Critique

This image was submitted by T.A. Bentley, taken with a Canon S5-IS, with an exposure of 1/1.3 sec at f/3.5, ISO 80, editing the moon in. At first glance, this is a nice cityscape, the composition is well done with the lights reflecting on the water. Unfortunately it appears to have been way over sharpened, the sky has a strange look to it. The colors are also saturated which actually adds to the image. Knowing the moon was added it is out of scale with the rest of the image but this was the intent. It really doesn’t make sense because the buildings are lit with the last of the daylight and then there is a full moon.
