    really nice sky colours... but the dark areas are so underexposed, i wonder if you would not have been better off just shootng a skyline without the people.

    personally i like this photo,
    sunset people going home... and the shadow gives the feeling of end of a day and i really like the lighting of the evening sky..
    just my personal opinion.
    love it!

    the angle is not good, too much of a messy silhouette. consider going lower next time.

    I would personally try to move the lamppost out of view, but I like it nonetheless.

    i like the silhouette part ... but I feel that the black part at the bottom is distracting ... Maybe a full body shot that shows more of the sky would help .. IMHO

    too much black mass at the bottom. silhouette cut-off, creates an unease of something missing in the figures. maybe a lower angle shot.

    It does convey the sense of returning home after work though, but in that context the lamppost does not add anything to it and merely distracts. Crop or clone away, but thats a minor point: can't save the composition.

    amsyari like the photo and the colour. People in the background give the title meaning. Work from dusk till dawn.

    The idea in the above photo is similar, just much better composed.

    I think for such a photo, you were trying to get the returning workers against the sunset. Perhaps you should have kneeled/squatted when taking the picture... then you will get less of the black mass at the bottom, and the people will appear longer. This is one reason why many photojournalists get bad knees when they age... Too much kneeling to get a better perspective.
