Orchard Road in Singapore during Advent-Christmas festive season. Orchard Road dresses up for Christmas every year during the period between last week of November and first week of January.
The famous annual Christmas light-up is a great chance for visitors to snap a special photographic memento of the decorations.

Wow this looks like a fairy tale place.
Amazing decorations and lighting and you have captured them with intricate details. As we cannot see the support wires due to the black BG the lightings seem to be hanging in the night sky. Superb effect of depth and perspective. A very beautiful and well taken photo.

I look forward to this week for it is usually when people post atmospheric shots on their experiences of Christmas. This gives the 'big city' mood with the festive lights showing up well against the dark of the night.
You have a lovely composition, baubles to the left, then the arched, street-covering lights creating a wonderful sense of perspective as they diminish into the b/g.
Have a lovely day,

nice the night shot of the well decorated Orchard road with the lot of garlands to creates depth and perspective in the scene.The lights of the passing by cars are a good optical focal element of the scene.

A great place to go shopping - Orchard Road. Here we have the added bonus of some wonderful Christmas lights whilst I assume the weather remains reasonably mild. The repeating motifs of the lights and the car head lights together help create a superb long perspective. Ideally exposed and with excellent detail.

Le point de vue sur les décorations de circonstances donne une belle image profonde ou se reproduisent le même motif lumineux sur une longue distance. J'aime aussi le ballet de voitures qui passent dessous.

Very attractive holiday light creation curving and flowing above the road. Perhaps too distracting here for our easily distracted drivers?

You're capturing well this street in blue hour by a good angle,a good perspective and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the street with long colorful decoration for Christmas season. It looks like the design skillful to eyes. And, the headlight of car draws out a good impact.

Superb POV which give the car lights and Christmas decoration on the street, the beauty of the light is spectacular decorations, elegant design that gives much party atmosphere.
Good brightness and sharpness, with vibrant colors.

the Christmas decoration is very attractive and surely delights the commuters and passers by, especially the children. I think that your composition would have even greater depth and impact if you had included the whole of the luminous pattern at the top of the frame, but this may not have been allowed by your point of view. Sharpness and colours are superb, the traffic and movement below set the context effectively. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

I was just out over the weekend trying to capture the same type of festive holiday mood with lights, and it turned out to be more difficult than I had imagined!? :) That being the said, I applaud your result on this one. It's a great arrangement too, I didn't notice the cars as first, I had just assumed this was stretched over a pedestrian path, so even more impressive is the exposure control which has kept everything in tact, visibly delightful and bright. A cheerful and happy night time shot, great job!

I must admit, your recent posts are really putting me in the spirit of the Season, so festive and beautiful to see. This is a fantastic array of decoration, and I love that you created such superb depth as we look down the road under the roof of lights. Lovely composition too, leading in from the low right corner.
Once again, as I reach for the eggnog

very nice use of the light and the patterns created in the street. I liked the colors and the visual effect you got here. I would cut off the upper side, concentrating the attention in the lower part of this compo.
