A nice atmosphere well captured with a good light.
I had seen Bryggen in summer but in wionter it seems to be really nice too and more quiet.
Well done with those nice reflections.
Happy new year

This is like a scene from a fairytale! A beautiful blue-hour shot with excellent light management and good composition, with the repetition of the houses and with the reflections. The gentle light is perfect for the scene.

Fantastic composition. Landscape in cold colors and a lot of places with worm lights in houses. Beautiful mirror of water. Suitable frame proportion.
