Questionable play of moonlight and shadow hanging over a heavy builiding gave priority to the technical side of this shot, completely losing the feeling of the power of nature. Bad picture.

Bad picture? I'd rather say - very bad, pathetic picture! Play of moonlight and shadows, mentioned by Jeremy, is pity, even with the big, straight post separating two parts of this picture. I'm depressed.

Now, when you've said that, I realize - good photographers take a picture of a moon and what you see is the whole Universe. But here! It constitutes a mere addition to the overweight block on the far right and the anorectic lamp post in the middle. Ouch!

You' re absolutely right! But we may look at this "picture" from the other way - one part of it is very dark (eg. the sky, the building) and the other is just dark (everything else except the moon and the windows). This is not a picture - its a Big Mistake!

By using the word "dark", Philip, you're adding to this picture a meaning that is not existing in it - one would call it an artificial reality. I'd rather say - potentially interesting situation unfortunatelly caught on the way to the center of artistic unknown.

Good and bad designations are subjective. So are descriptors such as depressing and "big mistake". I find the photo interesting, and I like it. I challenge the critics, Jeremy and Phillip, to leave a website address where we can see what they have done.
