At last, the second evening I could reach the Old town market place in Warsaw, in the Stare Miasto area.
Once again, I was attracted by the large stone pavements. One portion of that pavement would create a nice perspective in my opinion to show you the nice colorful buildings of that place.
Bombed during the WW2, this historic place was largely rebuilded or restored in the last decades. Still, this area deserves an intense night visit, especially under that very moment of the sunset.
Rotated, USM applied and contrast masking technics. I also tried to correct the overexposure of the public light even if not as successufully as I wished.

Looks fine, same as I remember it. Good moment chosen to achieve color/brightness balance. Perspective might be corrected (leaning buildings) for even better impression. You managed to capture this magical feeling there. I cannot understand how did you manage to have the pavement clear of poeple for a while (or are they just waiting behind your back ?). Well done

Very nice composed. I like this type of night shots! I notice a minor problem with noise.

Great composition and capture. I enjoy the motion of the woman on the right and the still and calmness of the man on the left. Perhaps use neat image to take out some of the noise in the sky, but other than that, well done.

This is an interesting and very beautiful photo Steven. The light and colour is great - the light in particular on that building on the left is superb. In fact, to accentuate that great building on the left, you could almost have cropped it some along the bottom. But, great as it is... thanks for sharing this, and your note too.

Je connais cette place et j'admire les travaux qui ont été effectués pour la réhabiliter après la guerre, conforme à l'original.
C'est une vue de nuit bien réussie dont on appréciera le jeu des couleurs dans la lumière artificielle!

Hola de nuevo Steven. Una foto muy buena. El punto de vista tan bajo incrementa mucho la sensación de amplitud de la calle. Me gustan mucho los colores y la iluminación así como el encanto de las calles peatonales con sus restaurantes y mesas en las calles. Buen trabajo.

Beautiful picture. Very colorful and bright. Downtown life is revealed pretty good. Texture on the ground and the blue sky are great. I think the light in the center is little overburned
