In this picture I wanted to give a different perspective to almost make you part of the streets of the New York I love, with a particular balance between the balls and the city :)

Nice, but two issues for me that need work. One is the use of two different camera angles. The level look at the player is confusing with the downward perspective of the cityscape. Not good to mix camera angles that much.

Second, the light on the player would be better and show more detail where needed if coming from the left rather than the right. That would make your eye "read" the light from the street illuminating the player. Right now you lose the cue stick in his hand.

Hey thanks jack for your comment!
I'm still learning so everything is welcome!
U r perfectly right about the light, i realized it the same night when i got home that i should have done it from the left :)
about the angle, that was actually my idea, i waned to create this particular balance-no balance, between the scene and the city...lol...i guess i'm a little crazy!:)
thanks again!!!
And diane, thanks a lot for telling me about this site!!!
