CIty Night

I actually shot and processed this image about a month ago, and I've been on the fence about posting it since then. There are some things I really love about it: the atmosphere of a city at night, something I've always found really magical. Also, I love that girl with her shopping back in the foreground. And I like that she's blurry, but I wonder how y'all feel about that. I like the different layers as well: she family in the background, the lady having a conversation with her coffee in the bottom left corner, the city lights in the distance. The only thing I worry about is: is it too busy? For me the focal point is the girl.

But what about you?

(PS Happy Birthday Hannah!)
