Excellent photography. The sharpness of the image - the solid structure of the buildings, contrasts with the fleeting blurred image of the cyclist passing by. The play of light here is excellent - with the cyclist seen here almost as a silhouette. This dark movement is again contrasted with the clear white lantern swaying in the light breeze. The colours are warm and the composition just fine. Thanks for sharing.

Great moody nighttime shot, Ryno. The golden glow on the walls, stairs and arch is perfect, and other elements create a spooky and quiet feeling to the shot, most notably the bicyclist but also the shadows and the lantern hanging at left, waving in the breeze. Well realized capture.

The light is interesting, giving the picture a real mood with the "ghost" of the guy on the bike.
I also like the composition and its diagonal lines.
