The image is very well exposed, giving great details in the architecture!
The lighting of the structure is interesting, and contributes to the fine feeling of depth...
Sharp fine details and an outstanding night capture!

Hi Ulf, A stunningly beautiful photo of this amazing hotel, I though it was a cathedral, the light is perfect & looks even better against the black sky, the detail is brilliant, great shot, kind regards Wilson.

When I visited Brussels last month, the weather was unfortunately not very inviting for photos, so I haven't very good captures of the beautiful town hall and no night shot of it either. This looks great, the highly decorated facade is wonderfully illuminated and you caught it very well here in all its splendour. Very well done and thanks for sharing!

Great detail and lighting of the building against the dark sky. The crowd of people and even the reflection off of the street are nice.

Magnificent example of Gothic architecture.
Superbly exposed, we can see a lot of details in the building.
I don't know what time could be, but there are a lot of people in the street, Brussels seems to be a very lively city.
