Dear All,

This is the shot I took during the late evening hours in the city center. I enjoy the architecture of these old buildings and the pathway leading to an historical church. The building with white facade is the town-hall and the buildings on the right are shops and restaurants.

The lines you see on the street are not of a tram but this is the effect I suddenly got when a can passed by. Due to its light, the stone-textures of the historical street gave a special appearance.

You can see the ghost image left by the fast moving car (seen in the lower right corner of the picture).

Hope you enjoy the mood in this nocturnal shot.

Best regards,

Good noturne...with good details of decorations and good architecture. If you correct a little the lines in the front you would achieved perfection... very moody atmosphere.
um abraço

Very nice timed exposure, nice catch of the headlights making those lines. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Night photography and long shutter speed is an art and you are doing well her Paras. Amazing clarity sharpness and focus. I like to see this shot taken in during the blue hour too. Well done my friend, TFS.

Hello Paras

I think i like the road leading to the church. Tack sharp and full of study. A very interesting image.

Hi Paras,
A very nice night shot. Excellent sharpness for a night shot. The road very nicely leads your eyes to the church. The Northern European architecture on display here is superb.

Likes: the lighting, the composition, the road and tree

Dislike: convergence, upper and lower black bars

Hello Paras :)

Houses and street look in the evening light very nicely.
The black background underlines colours and light magnificently,
I like him very much.
The beautiful work in the showy realization!

Best wishes...Barbara.
