Plaza de la Alianza, Barrio de Santa Cruz, Sevilla.
Night in January, after a beautiful sunny day. Now we are in a lovely old square, with no-one around, but surrounded by orange trees and confronted by a rather kitschy advertisement. I wanted to capture the disjuncture between the dimly-lit square and the somewhat garishly-lit poster, though I'm sure they are quite used to each other!

Excellent idea of this wonderful capture! The place looks absolutely great and eye-catching by all those bright and vivid tones. Well taken and executed image. Thanks for sharing.

I like the idea of using the piece of wall with painting to add "narration" to the composition.

beautiful capture…the idea to include the woman on the wall was marvelous…at first look it seems a little strange..till you understand the true dimensions….very well placed…nice colors and clarity also!

An interesting juxtaposition and a nice idea for a photo. What initially drew my attention were the blocks of colours and then, when looking more closely, there are some lovely detail. I like this very much indeed.
Kind Regards, Ann

Hi dear Will
A nocturnal with a difference. What a creative composition. I like the way you've framed it with the mural dominating on the left. It actually looks three dimensional. Beautiful warm colours, good exposure and excellent sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

Une bien belle image où tous les éléments sont parfaitement à leur place et bien colorés.J'aime beaucoup le mur peint qui donne vie à l'ensemble.

So, i see that we keep on strolling on the same streets and finding the same corners. I was planning to upload a very similar photo with exactly the same POV and framing, but after seeing yours, i decided not to upload it as i feel it will become nothing but a duplication :)
I like it of course. Otherwise, i wouldn't do the same.
