1. in what area is critique to be sought?
I don't know. Frankly if I knew it, I wouldn't need to post this here. But please read on...
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
As the name suggests, I want to show the grace of the curve (of the bridge) and the magnificence of the bright star at the farther end of the curve.
3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
I was walking on the street when I saw this bridge. I was immediately attracted to its graceful curvature. And I knew that, if a small aperture is used, the lamp at the other end of the bridge will become a magnificent star. So I set up my tripod, set the aperture to f/16, and happily took a few shots.
4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
Everything looked fine on the back LCD of my D90. But when I open the raw file on my computer, the feeling mysteriously disappeared. I don't know what it is, but something, which caused my feeling, was missing... Please help me figure out what it is. Thanks.
