Tarrega is not big town, but the night life is much bigger. On Friday and Saturday evenings, when the sun has set, young people appear on the streets. They get together in the main square and go to one of Tŕrrega's several pubs.
I had the fortune to spend a week here and experience this lovely town's night life.
Tŕrrega is the capital of the comarca of Urgell, in the province of Lleida, Catalonia, Spain. Altitude 373 metres above the sea. Population 16.131 (2007).
Tŕrrega possesses a large natural park, called Sant Eloi in the north-east. The city has many romanic and gothic buildings. The Palau dels Marquesos i la Floresta dates from the XIII century, and the Church of Sant Antoni from the XIV century.
At its theatre fair, held annually each September, Tŕrrega welcomes more than 100,000 people. It's the second biggest city in Lleida provincia.
Manuel de Pedrolo (a famous poet), lived in Tŕrrega. Joan Capdevila (Villarreal CF and Deportivo de La Coruńa footballer) was born and lived there.
I would be pleased if you told me your opinion about the photo!

Beautiful night photo from the Spanish town.
The blur shadows of the pedestrians make a great atmosphere.
The light management is also successful.

kellemes és hangulatos esti utcai kép, tele szellemekkel (:D.
A kevés fény kezelése nagyon jó és ez megnyílvanul a tökéletes élességben is. Talán a gépet meglehetett volna emelni egy picit, hogy keveseb aszfalt és legalább az az ovális reklámtábla teljesen beleférjen a képbe. Részletek...
Gratulálok és kellemes d.u.-t kívánok!

Good night capture of this street, with good exposure and nice golden tones.
I like the dynamic effect of the movement of the people, they look like ghosts, and the perspective that you have obtained in your setting.

Your Spanish vacation seems to have inspired you :)
It is always great to see ghosts walking around, thanks to long exposure.
The steady figures are very nice also, but especially the ghost next to the left border is frightening and perfect!
ps: have you made up your Istanbul plans?

Nagyszerű éjszakai fotó remek fényekkel és részletekkel. Osztozom Atus véleményében a képmező megemelésével kapcsolatban, a térélmény egyébként szuper. Hangulatos és szép városkép, Gratulálok, és szép tájakat!

this is excellent. both luck and talent meets on this photo I say this because this street is surrounded with almost same colors of light all along, and the buildings are very close as the street is narrow therefore it makes the influence of light very positive.

Wonderful shot! I like the mood that you've created here. The warm lights are superb, the inclusion of the people in the street tells a story.

Hi Marton, friend,
worm atmosphere on this picture you created. The street really is so charming. Like some street in Vesprem, I visited some years ago.
Have the best 2009 year, plenty of pictures for your soul.
