A catchy shot! Great POV, love the light and the texture of the pavement. I agree with Marion, very atmospheric. TFS!

a stunning POV and beautifully expressive image. Love the light and your immaculate sharpness here. It is an extremely accomplished execution and a quality presentation. Captivating imagery - well done!
Enjoy the weekend - Brian.

Hello Michael - You have captured an atmospheric shot of the Shambles and what is really great is the fact that there's not a soul to be seen. So unusual! The water and wet cobbles reflect the lights which adds additional colour and contrast to a well composed image. Very good management. Best regards Rosemary

This one is a very good long exposure, benefiting from the tripod. I think you chose a fine angle of view which makes strong perspective effect and has a great close look at the cobblestones. You must have photographed this late at night - it looks completely deserted. But it also looks very 'old', as if it were a picture from long ago. Nice work indeed.

wonderful view into the dark picturesque street with the sparkling reflections, white and coloured, offering wonderful glistening patterns, and a vivid wet atmosphere. There's delightful depth leading to a curve and the stronger colourful lights but it's also interesting to wander around the fascinating textures on both sides of the street and on the cobblestone.
Well done for the composition and the technique!
All the best,

excellent night view on this old street paved with a good management of light on an image of a very good sharpness.
Very good work

You've captured the spirit of the place. I like the play of lights on the wet ground and colours of the pin prick of lights in the distance. Congrats on this one!

This is a super picture. The light on the wet street and cobblestones is fabulous. Composition, sharpness and exposure all first class.

Good idea to have a low POV to take the wet cobblestone backlighted by the streets lamps. it looks as a d picture (HDR?)
Spend a nice sunday

Belle et impressionnante photo nocturne de cette rue déserte. Le pavé luisant est superbe.

The textures in your photo are really great. The color is very deep and the perspective is good too.
