I think in general you made this a bit too dark with as a result that the picture lost much of its charm. I think by making it lighter and may increase the contrast a little this would work far better. The total picture seems to be leaning to the left somewhat.
i haven't seen your black & white side yet, jim. i like it. the mood in the sky here is beautifully captured. how's that for "straight and tough" critique? oh, all right, here's one: lop off a little from the bottom; just barely an inch or so to keep that dark black and a few of those sparkly tar-beach highlights. the lighting on the buildings is great...the stark shadows all work very well.
i really like the dasrkness of it, the sky is great, i would probably just clone out the little white spots in the right backround,little houses or shops?
so the focus is on the sign and motel itself.
You know, when I stayed here they didn't have any customers either. Wonder how they keep the place looking so good. Fantastic lighting and comp. Nice POV.
I have never seen one of these after eating mushrooms!!
I love the lighting and do not think it is too light, in fact lightening it up would turn it in to a more common shot. There is a feeling of the sun peeking through an opening in the thick dark clouds right before nightime...imminent really. As for the composition I love the contrast between the incrdibly gigantic sign and the tiny motel complex.
