Daily Deviation

Given 2014-06-19
The fisheye effect and the stark contrast really create the atmosphere in this photograph. Great capture!

Pretty nice capture you got there! But I must say the composition is a bit unbalanced - too much contrast between the right and left side. Other the tones are surely impressive, a nice spot of warmness near the colder blueish tones.
As for technique it ain't really remarkable as you have some vignetting on the left side - only on that side (symmetry would have compensated). Also the DoF seems pretty shallow therefore the already dark background makes the top and bottom of the photo seem separated by some sort of dark void.
All in all - desired or not - the faults of the shot make it really interesting and the perspective is surely very original.
What do you think?
