I dodged and burned only the top part of the clouds in this and

wanted opinions on that. This is a digital image processed in

Photoshop.

I like this shot - Looks like a stairway to nowhere. Personally, I would have tried a little different angle - to crop out the sign Avenue A entirely - but that's only my personal preference. I think that would have been a more interesting theme. Overall not a bad shot

I love the full range of gray's you are able to pull out in your shots. I admire your work.

Very nice photo overall. Captures a sense of place time and feeling. You could have reframed to crop out the sign as has been suggested but that would be a different photo. So this subject is worthy of two photos. But I like this one, the balance of ground and sky is very well done. You must have developed and printed this yourself? I can't get my local lab to print this quality of tonal range.

I disagree with the cropping suggestions...you'd lose the uniqueness of the picture and definitely compromise the character of the subject. If the subject is a stairway to nothing in particular mysteriously marked Avenue A (or seems to be anyway), then portray that character--the value is in the out-of-the-blueness. i join others in awe at the tonal range. here and in 'poles' you've achieved seemingly impossible range from white to black not only in the photo overall but also in the clouds alone and in the ground alone...HOW?

A great shot, so spacious and unquieting ... burning and dodging are not intrusive so you did a good job and the sky it's not overly dramtic. I agree with a comment about cropping & taking Avenue A out ... Of course, you would come with an entirely different picture -- Stairway to Heaven instead of Avenue A

Overall, I liked your portfolio, but this one and another one caught my eye... I might have enjoyed to see also a totally different and more spectacular angle for this shot, and to compare. Your angle is great and smart, since it reflects peace in the "Avenue"... Could have been interesting too to use a different angle to suggest a future awakening of this lost place... But that would just be another possibility, and not a better possibility...

This image really grabs me and draws me in. There are three elements, the stairway, the street sign, and the sky. They don't compete but complement. The image would be less without any one of them. Well executed technically as well.
