The lighting is very good (clouds in the background are just awesome). I usually hate tilted pictures as being too contrived - but it really works in this picture to add to the drama. I like the touch of "humanity sleeps while the hero does his work" feel of the housing in the background. Very nicely put together.

Nice creative idea and execution. Agree with others.

This is wonderful; I love the colors the composition and wizard imagery.
You have created an image that will be difficult to beat.

Thanks again Colin, the light source is really quite simple. Without the lens flare added the image didn't have quite the impact as with it.

This looked great on my naff work monitor, looks way better on my home monitor, the colours are so rich and saturated but natural at the same time.
OK, I've gotta know, what was the light source on the end of the wand ??

Thank you guys, A Harry Potter theme would've been better for the title but it didn't come to mind at the time. I'll leave it as is. Niko (nephew) has not seen this yet and he is an avid fan of both Star Wars and Harry Potter. I'm sure he'll be thrilled.

How old is he you? You know hogwarts will be expecting him in the fall if he is 11.
Very good idea, well composed and great colors.

All good ! Very good idea, exposure, pose, colours... Boy, that's going to be difficult to beat !!

Hope you have a theme in mind. I think this could be the shot that wins. At least it sure does make a big impression on me. I think you did a fantastic job with this. I love his wand, to me Hogwarts came to mind. Another young friend of Harry Potter's perhaps? I bet he is thrilled about his picture you took!

Excellent! Love the saturated evening colours. The idea, pose and title are all excellent too and I like that he has his hood up to echo a star wars cape as well.
All round very very good shot.
I'll puzzle over the lighting when I get home and see this this on a better monitor.
