Congratulations for this superb view of a street of this very nice city. An imag full of athmospher, an athmospher a little mysterious.
A great prospect effect to the St Nicholas church with this FG on the left (lamp and wall) well selected. I like too the very nice dored light. A very good and beautiful photowork.
Have a good evening,

Good evening, Wilson.
One of those shots that strike upon sight and keep growing on you the more you look at them. Stunning in terms of lighting and atmosphere, it makes me think of Nosferatu, Eine Symphonie Des Grauens, F.W. Murnau's 1922 cinematographic masterpiece... Outstanding photojob, TFS! Have a good weekend, I'll be seeing you.

une photo qui rend bien l'ambiance nocturne et qui semble échapper à l'époque contemporaine. un post-traitement efficace à l'origine de la réussite de ce rendu. un format vertical bien approprié
Sne011 (3084) 2009-02-21 16:46
Prague really has a special atmosphere and you caught it very well here! Great night shot!
Have a nice weekend!

Beautiful shot, Wilson...
I love the light and those wonderful golden tones. Remarkable sharpness for a night shot and there are so many marvelous lines and details. Truly an incredibly well done photo. Many thanks and warm regards,

Hello Wilson, Excellent all round photo work here, I mean not only is it well composed & framed but colour, detail etc. are all spot on. The scene is lovely & matched only by the atmosphere you captured & created.

Great POV !
I like the way you composed with depth and several great architecture elements.
Have a nice day,
UlfE (14641) 2009-02-21 23:39
Wow, what a wonderful shot from Prague. I love the warm yellow colours. It seems to have been a cloudy night but taking night shots is not a bad idea under such condition. It could result in really beautiful pictures like this one. Excellent photo-job. TFS and have nice Sunday!

Beaucoup de rigueur dans ce cadrage et une très belle photo de nuit qui retranscrit bien l'ambiance des lieux.
Une très belle réalisation!!
macondo (19516) 2009-02-22 1:16
Very good night time capture, full of atmosphere. Makes me think of old films like The Third Man. Pity the lamp is a bit tilted, but I think distortion removal might have meant cropping too much of it to leave it with any presence. No doubt you thought about it. The detail you dragged out of the shadowy areas is terrific.
snunney (99116) 2009-02-22 2:49
I like the framing and point of view here and the presence of the people. A beautiful ensemble of architecture, which takes on a different dimension under the warm glow of the street lights. Very well done.
Budapestman (82620) 2009-02-22 5:19
Beautiful nocturnal shot with gorgeous lights and spectacular vertical composition. The architectural details are beautiful, the light control is superb. Excellent shot. Have a nice Sunday!
jemaflor (97305) 2009-02-22 11:04
Good idea with this frame and interesting effect with a good light capture, nice architectural perspective with a good human presence, just a detail with a noisy sky, difficult with this dark night !
Vasa (515) 2009-02-22 11:35
Hi Wilson, dear friend,
you make what you wont with your Canon. The temptation on the limit of the light is quite succesful. Prague is so warm in your picture. Even in December. Many thanks master.
Graal (102894) 2009-02-22 23:57
nice night reportage from Prague. Good shot and presentation of Old Town. Fine vertical composition. I like it.
Nicou (142176) 2009-02-23 0:41
Superbne image, Quelle douceur dans les tons avec ces belles lumières, ces lampadiaire, la recherche du caedrage avbec le clocher en fond de la rue, très bien réalisé.

Good morning Wilson,
nice the nocturne shot of this backstreet of the Prague's city,with the artificial light to make the scene so atmospheric.The existence of the blur people, looks like figures in this empty street.Well done.
Have a nice day,Danos
dumbo (4541) 2009-02-23 5:10
Good night photo of this very beautiful city. I like this composition and those church towers.
Cricri (119511) 2009-02-23 11:09
Un cadrage bien pensé sur plusieurs détails et architecture, une couleur spéciale qui renforce le silence du soir, belle réalisation
Good evening for you

Ciao Wilson, splendid nocturne shoot with fantastic light, great perspective, very well done, ciao Silvio
andante (7092) 2009-02-23 12:43
The photo has a strong feeling for a John Le Carre story... feels like I'm there... great atmosphere!
emjleclercq (15780) 2009-02-23 13:36
Great depth and excellent light, a very nice night picture (with just a bit of noise in the sky, IMO).
All the best,
John_F_Kennedy (43665) 2009-02-24 1:41
Wonderful capture. Very sharp and clear. Love the colours.
patdeph (35748) 2009-02-24 2:11
this is a superb street,not only the St Nicholas church and its dome,but also the houses walls,the stairs,the bow-window,the porch,the lights,and everything superbly enhanced by the wonderful golden colours!This is full of magnificent details and you had chosen the best POV to show this street and its beauty!
JCG (35129) 2009-02-24 8:19
A beautiful picture at night with a good format to match the architecture. The golden atmosphere is very pleasant. Interesting image with light well managed, thank you Wilson.
With all my friendships and a very good end of the day
gunbud (34066) 2009-02-24 8:27
The tight vertical format works very well here giving us a lovely deep view of this beautiful Czech architecture seen in this warm golden night lgith.
feather (51130) 2009-02-24 8:36
What a difference the people make. The tones somehow give an air of mystery: even menace, and the people somehow look like they are up to no good. :D Very good framing and handling of the vertical perspective. The sky is a bit noisy, but nothing I can't live with.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2009-02-24 9:21
L'image est mystérieuse avec ces personnages énigmatiques et élégants qui parcourent cette rue. On y découvre une architecture intéressante. Bonne gestion de l'exposition. Un joli travail.
Have a nice evening
papagolf21 (101984) 2009-02-24 13:36
Bonsoir, cher Wilson,
Cette composition semble sortir tout droit d'un film à suspens ! J'aime beaucoup l'ambiance qui se dégage de cette composition.
Le cadrage a été finement pensé. Cette vue en perspective avec l'église en toile de fond est parfaite.
vinicio (23423) 2009-02-24 23:04
Nice atmosphere and beautiful view of the town, very well done, compliments Wilson.
TopGeo (38216) 2009-02-25 4:28
Hi Wilson! It is a picture with very beautiful frame and a composition in a nightly way that impresses! The colours and the dark background with the tower interests.
Cretense (68703) 2009-02-25 5:53
Beautiful nightshot and excellent architecture photo! Great framing and composition, nice exposure. The White Balance is obviously wrong (too "warm"), but somehow, it works very well! Congratulations!
axiotea (21651) 2009-02-25 11:02
A successful framing and good expo at night time, allowing to see nicely the details of the backstreet architecture. The lamp streets are also a nice element to look at!
devimeuxbe (58557) 2009-02-25 14:16
interesting vision on the city by night. Amazing light and nice perspective.
paololg (31448) 2009-02-25 15:13
Ciao dear Wilson,
stupendous nighttime, done with excellent photographic technique, especially in the management of the light and the sharpness. The perfect POV has allowed you to capture a really suggestive view of this beautiful city. Compliments!
Ciao, have a nice day!
bakes888 (18499) 2009-02-25 21:20
Hi Wilson. Great photo. Wonderful colours and atmosphere, very arty. The figures walking in the scene are a great inclusion and add life to the composition. Excellent work and thanks for sharing.
PixelTerror (0) 2009-02-25 22:12
Moody picture in these unique surroundings and a good result for being shot hand held, just the left street lamp is a bit close to the frame border.
Have a nice day JY
bracasha75 (24589) 2009-02-25 22:57
Very nice evening scene in old Prague and place with lot of historic places and great beer!!!!!
I have never visit Prague but i know some guys from there and once.....
Angelillo (9374) 2009-02-26 15:19
Very good sharpen and great golden light. I like specially the light, strong in the foreground, and softly dark in the background. Only by the light, we could realize the deep in this scene. It's too good for that, the people walkint and the cupoles in a very good perspective!
batalay (38821) 2009-02-26 15:31
Superb light management, with the street scene resonating with golden hues, and the straight lights resembling glittering jewels. The cobblestone street, the elegant jetting bay window, and the cupola of St. Nicholas remind me of the 1984 film, Amadeus, about Mozart and Salieri. It was filmed in Prague, as, I understand, so much of the 18th century architecture still stands.
jhm (152970) 2009-02-27 3:17
I like the light and colours in these wonderful night picture
Prague by night splendid done.
Marvellous capture of this particular moment.
Very well done, TFS.
Juntas (7960) 2009-02-27 7:21
Hi Wilson. VEry nice view of that street of Prague. Too bad that you couldn't give more space to the street lamp on the left. Nice colors and light well managed. Good job. Have a nice weekend. Paulo
stego (24132) 2009-02-28 5:17
I like very much the tight crop, the straight perspective and the warm moody light, which probably doesn't match the cold weather. It's very attractive graphically, but it also features a quite "nocturne atmosphere", enhanced by the presence of those ghostly human figures walking.
MLINES (12516) 2009-03-01 13:35
Hi Wilson, Good capture of this well-lit street in Prague, a city of great mystery. I like especially the colouring and details of those lamp posts. Very good night photo. TFS. Murray.
BWJ (3094) 2009-03-03 19:12
This is a fantastic night shot Your managed the light perfectly to get warm natural color and excellent details. I like the vertical lines and variety of shapes formed by the buildings. Prague is a beautiful city.
brevbrev14 (140) 2009-03-05 15:22
Hi Wilson, the orange tones of the night are well captured
i like the people on the street
Didi (60588) 2009-04-15 9:12
Nice warm lights on the street, well done for this good lights management.
It's possible also if you take RAW pictures to set the white balance if you want to give colder lights.
pboehringer (770) 2009-05-20 21:29
thanks to the not quite clear design of the new TE site design I am a little bit lost in finding the right sequence in presentation of your work, but that has some positive elements by itself. All of the sudden I got this older shot of yours on my screen and I have to say that this was absolutely worth it. The dominant orange color with all these architectural elements and finally the slightly blurred persons in the right lower corner makes this a real great shot.
nels (2623) 2009-08-16 7:48
hello wilson, realy like the lighting and atmosphere captured in this shot, my wife visited this place not so long ago and remembered the place, she keeps saying i must go and see it for myself, seeing shots like this i might just take her one day
cobra112 (15589) 2009-09-05 11:42
Ciao Wilson. Amazing compo for thi nocturnale taken. Good playing of warm light and intrestin gcontrast. What atmosphere!
plimrn (21344) 2010-02-03 9:43
Interesting night shot with the onion domes glowing in the background.
tedesse (25135) 2010-02-06 11:44
Wonderful street shot!Nice night photo,excellent sharpness and light.
macjake (67806) 2010-02-07 19:20
ALthough there is noticeable noise in the darkened areas, it doesn't take away from the overall beauty of the shot.
the buildings make for textured layers creating depth and form.
jafadabret (56501) 2011-01-17 10:43
J'aime l'équilibre de cette composition. Les lumières et les couleurs donnent à cet ensemble beaucoup de grâce.
Du très beau travail !
yeln (11516) 2011-01-25 11:01
kompozicija s pridihom starih časov. nekoliko nostalgije je začutiti na tej ulici z lepim arhitekturnim elementon na steni hie. zelo lepo delo!!! tfs!
