I came to Plaza de Espana when it was still a day and then had been waiting for blue hour and night. Again, it seemed that the night would never come and sometimes I wanted to go to the hostel earlier. But when the first light appeared - it was magical. I spent there tow hours going round and round with my tripod.
Plaza de Espana is one of the main attractions in Sevilla. It wasbuilt in 1928 for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929. The Plaza de España complex is a huge half-circle with buildings continually running around the edge accessible over the moat by numerous bridges representing the four ancient kingdoms of Spain. In the centre is the Vicente Traver fountain. By the walls of the Plaza are many tiled alcoves, each representing a different province of Spain.

mi sembra quasi di vederti in giro con il treppiede, senza tregue, senza posa, alla ricerca dell'attimo giusto. Sei sicura di esserti goduta questo momento?
Noi, nel frattempo, ci godiamo la tua foto, dove le luci calde si moltiplicano grazie ai bei riflessi.

Beautiful place, colors and golden lights. You got amazing reflections too.

Oh yes, the dance of the tripod...don't you just love being hooked to it now? :) I think this is a case where the completely darkened sky works better with the reddish tones from the artificial lights. There's a warm, and even touch of mysterious mood from the coloring...maybe even a bit devilish. :) A beautiful composition which plays to the strong suit of the reflections and perspective. Glad you resisted the temptation to turn back to the hostel, it paid off with a lovely result. Enjoy the new week. All the best.

Malgorzata, Beautiful night scene of this Plaza and it is built at the water front which is a plus to the view. The golden tones add warmth to the composition. Best regards

Une bonne photo nocturne de cette place de Séville avec d'intéressants reflets et des couleurs chaudes.

During our visit to Seville some twelve years ago, we only visited this magnificent square during the day; we obviously missed some excellent photo opportunities:-( The point of view is excellent looking along the runway of reflected lights toward the focal point offered by the tower. Ideally exposed and with lovely warm colours and clarity.

Your notes certainly relay to us the excitement that you felt and that is evidenced in your photograph. It is alive with flickering lights, illuminating a very special scene.
You have chosen your viewpoint well, the double row of lights guiding succinctly to the focal tower.
Have a good day,

Well worth the wait to capture this beautiful night shot, the golden lights are stunning and the architecture presented against the reflecting lake is a real bonus. The inky blackness is a very cool surround for this impressive sight.

Fine picture of the Plaza with a good perspective and fine exposure. Its heartening to see that you used a tripod here :-)
The picture is beautiful of a place I haven't seen any pictures before..

Excellent night shot, Malgo! Superb quality, perfect exposure, gorgeous colors! My congratulations!
But what's happened with the King of Spain after your visit? ;)
