Summernight in the old streets of Oaxaca ...
It is very nice to stroll in the old colonial streets of Oaxaca.
Wikipedia says that :"The city of Oaxaca, Oaxaca (formally: Oaxaca de Juárez, in honor of 19th-century president and national hero Benito Juárez, who was born nearby) is the capital and main city of the Mexican state of the same name. It is located in the Oaxaca Valley in the Sierra Madre del Sur Mountains, at 17°05′N 96°45′W and an altitude of about 1550 m (5000 feet). The important Monte Albán archaeological site is close to the city. In 2003 the estimated population was 526,000 people.
The historic centre of the city is laid out in typical Spanish colonial style, with a rectangular grid of streets surrounding a central square, the zócalo. Most of the important buildings are within this central area."

Like the photo, little slice of life it represents. Color of the sky is great contrast with the warm colors of the street. Street light is distracting, but don't know how you'd fix it other than to reframe to exclude it. Very nice.

The colours really shout at you from the thumbnail, and when you see the full-size shot the people bring it to life.
The composition is good, but maybe a little crop on the sides?

Un ciel si bleu alors que le soleil se couche est très surprenant. Cette rue est vivante et l'atmosphère bien rendue. Je regrette juste la tête du personnage en bas à gauche. Merci

Although your photo is rather on the blurred side it perfectly captures the night scenery in the streets of Oaxaca. I especially like the hillside in the distance. Did you go to Monte Alban?

I love this sort of pictures that reflect the daily life of somewhere in this world . People strolling to and fro , the latest day lights specially with such spectacular cloudy sky whose blueish and greys contrast with the city lights , first lamp lights , colonial architecture and a bunch of details for recreation ...Good job and my best wishes !
