    Well done! That red is really eye-catching against the subdued background. I'm going to have words with fc and see if we can come up with a compromise :)

    Well if you'd listened to me and cropped closer you might have been in say 32nd place LOL Congratulations - super shot!

    Nice photo. Maybe I would have left a bit more room in front of the lady and less behind.

    Yes! - lots to like here - the sky, the cityscape, the lines of the lamposts and the bench planks - really well composed so all these good things are visable and well balanced. And of course a nice bright red coat!

    Sorry, Lo. I've already disappointed forkcandles by not including more of the shoes and feet - LOL!

    I like the glowing coat against the desaturized background, and the concentration of the girl. I would have been tempted to crop just below the lower knee, as the pose is not the most flattering.

    Nice job on the post processing and a good subject to work with. A favorite for me.

    I think a closer crop to emphasize the two rows of lights disappearing into the background works better, especially with the tilt corrected. Your desaturation technique works well.

    I did not oversaturate the color of her coat. It was made out of some strange material that almost glowed in the dark. Of course, desaturating the other colors except red emphasizes this - but that was my intention.

    Effective PP work but the red looks just a smidge overdone to me.
