1. In which area is critique or feedback to be given?

Composition and colour/WB.

I Like to take night street shots. However, I'm struggling to approach my subjects so that I can capture their facial expressions without them feeling offended. Also, I do not know how to adjust the white balance to remove the orange cast from street lamps without making the image look too blue.

2. What were you hoping to achieve with this image?

I want to show the hard work the man is going through, working late at night after the shops have closed so we can enjoy the clean environment.

3. Under what circumstance was the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)

This shot was taken at Haji Lane where all the pubs are. It's quite dark and quiet after the shops are closed.

4. Thread-starter's personal thoughts about the image.

It doesn't give the impact that the man is putting in a lot of hard work and the physical demands of pushing the dust bin.
