I like the colours, the format and the mistiness but the lamp post is a real shame.
I'm sure the PS experts could clone it out but it's not something I would want to take on.
It's a shame because it does affect a really first class picture.

This looks like something out of an old book - apart from the lamppost, which is an eyesore, and a crooked eyesore at that. But eyesores can be removed ;-).

I have to admit that the lamppost was one of the things that drove me into clicking the preview image - and I actually like it because it adds interest - alright, make that a crooked interest - to the right half of the image. I really like how you managed to capture the fog; this could easily be used to illustrate a fairy story book. Very nice shot, Frederic!

I know this place. "Fredon" seen here the beginning of a fairy tale. Good catch. (I don't think the lamp is a shame - it give a good DOf and refine the composition).

This has a beautiful misty and mystic feeling. The lamp post adds an extra dimension and, on balance, I prefer its inclusion (and that it is not vertical pleases me).

Cette vue a quelque chose de féérique. Le lampadaire à l'avant-plan donne de la profondeur. Dommage pour les traits peu naturels du ciel. ( Certainement problème de compression de la taille d'image )

Very very special feeling! The light and the fog does it I suppose. The lamp should not be there if you go by the handbook, but to me that leaning old lamp adds to the mysterious feeling. So let it stay!

Amazing colors. Hard to believe a sight could be so colorful. Wish I was still there.
Anyhow an amazing sight.
The pole is a distraction. :(
Couleurs étonnantes. Croire dur une vue a pu être si colorée. Le souhait I était toujours là. De toute façon une vue étonnante. Puits capturé. Le poteau est une distraction : (

Nice picture! Looks like a scene of a movie. Color and composition is grate.
I have no idea of pictures but if the street light was little bit right side and lower position, it would be better...
