      Dark passage near Charles Bridge in Prague. Darkened ceiling to emphasize “tunnel” effect. Some small retouches. CC?

      Very effective photo – only thing is I think I want to look at the silhouette of the rider rather than their tail light.. Might be just me though.

      I like this photo Petr. I agree with Rob’s comment about the light. It is quite distracting.

      Composition is gorgeous, although the red light is indeed quite distracting. I don’t know if a slight desaturation could reduce that feeling. I do like the silhouette and all the textures enhanced by both the artificial and natural light. Even with the distraction, it is a nice keeper! congrats mate.

      Nice shot. The striped colors on the right really make it.

      Yeah, the tail light. If you want to keep it, get rid of the white blowout in the center. Color it red, darken the whole thing a little, maybe. Try it, then clone it out.

      The second version. I’m not skilled at retouches. My best result. I’ve removed whole light. I wonder if it is too much…

        I like this Petr. It gives a mysterious mood to the image 🙂

      Yes, my eye is pulled right to that red light, yet I think it adds a bit to the mystery, but I did not notice at first that it must be the tail light of a scooter or bike.  It is also probably the cause of the red glare on the right wall.   I remember taking a photo looking down this tunnel, but I never left the street!   I like seeing the woman standing in the light at the end of the tunnel, too.  Nice shot.

      Removing the tail light was a good idea, the image looks cleaner this way.

      I like the red light, it explains the red reflection. Just not the blown out white.
      I prefer to remove the woman in the BG.

      I would prefer to ditch the red light and keep the woman. She seems to add depth to the “tunnel.”
