This is a common image in Baixa district at the night time.
The Pombaline Baixa is an elegant district, primarily constructed after the 1755 Lisbon earthquake. It takes its name from Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, 1st Marquess of Pombal, the Prime Minister to Joseph I of Portugal from 1750 to 1777 and key figure of the Enlightenment in Portugal, who took the lead in ordering the rebuilding of Lisbon after the 1755 earthquake. The Marquis of Pombal imposed strict conditions on rebuilding the city, and the current grid pattern strongly differs from the organic streetplan that characterised the district before the Earthquake.

Excellent nocturnal composition! I like this black&gold combination, good perspective, fine DoF. Thanks for the presentation of Lisboa. This is one of the cities what I'd like to visit. TFS!

This night shot is a little bit creepy. Oh, just kidding, because the street is so empty. And the street lights are lonely. But the golden tone on the wet surface is very nice.

Very nice golden tones, splendid reflections on the on the pavement and a great perspective on this street of Lisbon. Well done!
Have a nice week my friend.

A very attractive night time composition much enhanced by the warmly lit glistening pavement, which stretches as far as the eye can see. Carefully exposed and having good colours and sharpness. Thanks for sharing.

Salut Daniel, imi place foarte mult imaginea. Exact cum ma asteptam sa fie Lisabona. Imi plac tonurile portocalii.

Bel effet lumineux et coloré sur les pavés luisants. je l'aurais peut-être tentée en version carrée en coupant en dessous du premier lampadaire très lumineux?

I like this night view very much. The street looks like made of gold in this light. All the details and the structure of the cobbled pavement have been shown in very nice way. It must have been right after rain, because the street look wet and shiny which adds very much to the scene.
Good POV and depth.
Thanks for sharing

A very good perspective with all the lines that meet at the focal point far away. The golden colours dominate the scene and the reflections in the wet paving stones are very attractive. A peaceful street scene, where are all the people?

Lovely night image of this beautiful city. I really like the way the cobbles reflect the light.

I like the snakeskin pattern formed by the tiles in the pavement and the reflected golden sheen. Good sharpness and textbook use of diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. The blue green fluorescent light from the shop window adds a nice warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

The copper and gold tones of the wet street and shop windows are magnificent. This is a very sharp and well taken piece of night photography.
Kind Regards, Ann

attractive mood, works well for me!

Hi! Wonderful night & street picture! Management of light, colors, vertical format and composition are true highlights here! I love the reflections of the lights on the wet pavement! Cheers, Neyvan

you worked for this photo in a creative way and made the most of all the elements that were available or imposed by the setting. Composition and framing are superb, the perspective you are offering us is captivating and its great to discover so many details and textures all the way. There's marvelous interaction between dark and gold tones, the sheen of the light on the ground and the windows is lovely. Your picture is mysterious and inviting at the same time. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
