Luki DayAnd Night by dspiridonov Luki DayAnd Night by dspiridonov
My beloved hometown, Velikiye Luki. It was 3 times burnt and cut out (including elders, women&babies) by Rzeczpospolita, destroyed to the basements by German nazis, but always he arose from ashes, like a Phoenix (I'm sorry for such a banal analogy). It's unclear, from where Velikiye Luki (smthn like "Great Bows") took it's name: from bends of the river, or from well trained snipers, or from viking's Loki (their ships were burnt here not once). Anyway, it has a truly heroic history. And very beutiful girls, btw ;)

This is a very nice picture! I'm not very good at shooting at night and in low light, so I always adore photos of that kind. I like the color, but I have some doubts about focusing point. When I look at this photo I just can't decide where to look: to the right, where there is some kind of lamp, or to the left, where the sun is. This makes my eyes shifting constantly. 
Keep going!

Спасибо за комментарий =) Если честно, это чисто для себя и небольшого круга ностальгирующих по родному городу картинка, самая фишка в ней это аккуратное совмещение дня и ночи, ну и вид, собственно.

Да, я поняла, что идея была в том, чтобы совместить времена суток, просто взгляд реально мечется туда-сюда :)

It is interesting to look at, and it has a nice combination of warm and cool tones, but the composition is a bit strange. There are two very bright spots on the opposite sides of the frame, which makes the eye roam from one to the other, and a huge space in between that is just empty. I don't know, it is interesting, but I'm not sure whether I like it or not...

It's a very interesting composition in your pic. The two axes of light do frame it well and bring the title's promise near to the viewer. So I'm not quite sure if it's a manip but anyway it's well done. Love it!-)

Thanks!

Of course, it's manipulation, left side (day) was shot at 3 pm, and right (night) at 8 pm, then images was combined, and many other things has been done with them :)

Well, my mind said: it must be a manip, but my eyes didn't find it. So well done! Great pleasure!-)

It's ok. "Great Onions" -- it's a typical local joke.
