St. Louis, Missouri has a very impressive skyline. Fireworks display captured to the left of the Gateway Arch.

As you placed this into the No Mercy folder that means you want a brutally honest Critique from #thephotographyunion.

Your work reminds me how much I really want to play with slow shutter speeds. I love the color and technique in the shot. Your framing and lines are pleasing to the eye and well…. This shot is just FUN.

I would have chosen to crop a bit in this case to remove the uninteresting foreground and empty skyline at the very top. Additionally if positioning would have allowed it I probably would have set up quite a bit to the right or left to avoid the arch’s intersection with the taller buildings behind.

Keep up the great work. I’ll watch with interest as I really enjoy your style. On a totally unrelated note… I really like your “Personality upgrade” animation.

From :iconthephotographyunion:

The colours here are absolutely amazing. The water is so still and you've got some amazing reflections here. This is obviously a city that comes alive at night :D A couple of things I'd change in this photo though:

1. The composition. The horizon is right across the middle. Normally I'd try and place it using the rule of thirds. The difficulty here is how empty the sky and the water is... I'd suggest a bit of a tighter crop to bring back some of that empty space.

2. (and its minor) a wideangle shot of this would be stunning, I think. I understand you may not have one, but if at some point down the track you do, and you're at St. Louis I'd love to see this in wideangle.

Hope I could be some help,
From #thephotographyunion No Mercy team.

When you were there, did you get any Imo's pizza?

It's the most amazing pizza on the planet.
