Bruges' City Hall (1376) is one of the oldest in the Netherlands. An absolute masterpiece is the Gothic Hall with its late 19th-century murals and polychrome vault. The adjoining historic hall calls up the city council's history with a number of authentic documents and works of art. A multimedial exhibition on the ground floor illustrates the evolution of the Burg square (from http://visitbruges.be)

You took these picture almost to the entrance of the city hall ("Stadhuis" in Dutch)
Notwithstanding is the entrance a very pleasant colour, for to take an colour picture.
A little bit spooky with the ghosts man.
Excellent composition, pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice week,

perfect scene for B&W!
It has some kind of unique mood,that monochrome treatment emphasizes much better.
Also the way you composed the scene and the low POV suits well to the scene and gives it an artistic touch.

the low POV directs the eye on the shiny ground, reflecting the windows, and you've waited to have blurry human silhouettes to give live to this shot; maybe a little too early, it would have been better to have them in front of the windows.

I've always been a fan of monochrome, so this is a treat. The framing is interesting and unusual, presumably to include the reflections on the floor, and the fact that you waited for a figure to walk across the frame adds an important element of humanity but also mystery to the photograph.

Interesting POV Basak,
Difficult light conditions (for 1/10s) yet well managed.
