Melbourne At Night 2 by moviegirl78 Melbourne At Night 2 by moviegirl78
EDIT: Oh my god!! A Daily Deviation!! Thank you `Ricardo-Rick and ^Kaz-D and ^ScENeYmE for this truly unexpected honour! :huggle:

:iconpenguinsnuggleplz:

Oh, and just in case you were wondering, this (as are almost all of my images in my gallery) was taken with a point and shoot, not a DSLR. Check the camera data out to the right of the screen if you want to know more details.

I want to point that out, as I'm already getting a couple of queries on what camera and settings I use. You don't have to have a whizz bang camera to take photos! :D

~~~
Digital Photo taken a couple of weeks ago along the Yarra River in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

No cropping, but slight contrast added.

Lots of reflection work going on with this one. Not sure if it's a little busy or not... what do you think?

This has to be the best night shot I have seen in a long, long time.. when I looked at this it took by breath away!
The colours, exposure and composition are exceptional.
All the lines are doing a wonderful job of leading the eyes deeper into the image and with so much detail you just want to get lost in it! the light on the right balances it out nicely and the reflection is just incredible..
I really have nothing negative to say about this, it really is a truely wonderful photo!
great job, i am looking forward to seeing what you take next :D

I love the lights in this piece (even the blaring one from the lightpost). The reflections are really cool as well with all the lights. That for me is what makes this picture excellent job!

Is it? I've not been to Melbourne, Florida; although I think Melbourne, Florida is a sister city to Melbourne, Australia?

No offence to you, this is a great photo! But why the fck did this get a DD??

moviegirl78 Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2010
I'm sorry that this piece is not something you think should have been featured as a DD.

I can't say why my piece was chosen for a DD. I have no control over what the gallery moderators choose to feature and I believe most artists that are featured are in the same boat as me - other than what is mentioned in the "DD Suggestor Says..." section, we don't know why our pieces are chosen.

If you have an issue with my (or any) piece being featured as a DD, then I suggest you note or leave a comment to the gallery moderator that chose to feature it. Alternatively, you could check out FAQ #873: What do I do when I disapprove of a Daily Deviation feature? which might assist you in your queries.

how can someone not take offence to that comment! how would you like it if you got a DD, and then some #@#$ makes a comment like that..
Ill tell you why it got a DD, because people like it.. it seems your the only one that didn't.. there is always someone that has to ruin the DA community for everyone else!

I did like this photo, but a DD is not suppose to be given to works that everyone else are like "OWWW SHINY". It just seems that the DA Community is giving a DD for fcking everything this days.

Honestly I think this would be better without the lamp to the right. Its too bright and is distracting me from the rest of the photo.

:iconmoviegirl78:
moviegirl78 Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2010
Sorry you feel that way. I do think that the image needs something on the right hand side to balance the busy left hand side... whether or not it should be a light there or something else...? (Not that I can remove a city light... I think the Melbourne council would get a little angry with me! :D)

I don't normally self promote, but if you haven't already, you might find something more to your tastes in my gallery? If you've got some time, feel free to take a wander through and let me know what you think :D :hug:
