I'm totally speechless, but I should write minimum 100 words, so it's better if I say something.

Vision: 5/5 because it's a very interesting composition, the shadows and soft lights are balanced, the colours harmonize with each other.

Originality: 5/5 because I saw many photos, dark themes too, but I feel it unique. And there is one of your trademarks, the water-drops in the air.

Technique: 4.5/5 because there is a very little noise in the picture, and I'm not sure if it's the camera or you also use jpg image format (that's basically a bit noisy). And I think it would be better without that unnecessary noise.
Except that, little thing, it's a good picture, you could sell it as a print :)

Impact: 5/5 because it caught my eyes immediately, when I saw the thumbnail image, and it has a very special atmosphere and mood. This is the good kind of dark scene, not the scary one but the one that makes me curious. I would like to step into the scene and explore this dark and magical world.

Keep up the good work! ;)
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
6 out of 6 deviants thought this was fair.

First of all I would like to say that I love how this looks! One of my favorite parts of this picture would have to be wither the swirling sculpture in the middle or the wonderful bokeh. The darkness of the picture gives it a eerie feel that I really like. I like how it is dark, but not to dark. I can't really think of anything to say to improve it because I already thing it is wonderful. I think that everything in the picture is perfectly framed! Also, I just love how the tree on the right goes to the left up at the top without taking up to much room in the picture.

Keep up the good work!

Oh wow, this is beautiful. The color is amazing and the contrast of the two dark shapes (sculpture I think and the tree) really draws the viewer to contemplate the scene. You create a lovely amount of depth with the tree limbs and highlights at the right side. It really is beautiful work.
thank you so much *-*
i am so happy you like it~
yes, on the right side is a sculpture made of the old rail track~

in case you are interested in the unedit photograph, i uploaded it to my scrapbook:

You did a good job with the edit. It really feels much more moody and hyper-real in your edit. However, you also had a good photo to work with so that always helps, right!
oh yes that helps a lot :) i really was lucky~
