I got some great feedback on this photo from Photographica. VegasStan suggested that I retake the shot to include the feet of the statue, and then burn in (town done the brightness) of the lights as they are distracting.
I'll have to head to downtown Sac again before I move back to Colorado. In the meantime, I'll upload a new version of this photo with the distracting lights burned in a bit.
Tell me what you think...
