When the day is done the night rolls in
Lonely lovers come alive
Like a heartbeat in a world of sin
Cruising around hungry eyes
Like a midnight train going nowhere
Fading dreams of the city
Penthouse beds, sweet love affairs
Crimes of passion for the pretty
Man in blue on his beat
Unseen faces in the streets
Neon nights, neon nights, endless flame
Neon nights, neon nights, never change
Neon nights, neon nights, endless flame
Neon nights, neon nights...
This is my old report from the night Pattaya, Walking St. Sometime I want to come back to that crazy atmosphere.

bello scatto che documenta bene la vita notturna di questa famosa località thailandese.
Mi piace molto il taglio verticale che permette di unire nella foto la folla e le insegne luminose, entrambe dominanti e vero simbolo di questa famosa località.
Ciao e buona serata

Khao San road in Bangkok looks the same!
A good nightshot with all these neon signs and the locals and tourists in the foreground.

eine verrückte Atmosphäre, vielleicht für uns?; aber genug Neonlichter.
Wünsch dir eine schöne Zeit

Neon lights always make for an eye-catching image, and you compiled a nice group with this shot! Love the exposure, nothing appears to be overly exaggerated or blown out. With the vertical composition you've allowed for the inclusion of people, which has added more life into the scene...it feels vibrant and fun, full of atmosphere. Not the easiest kind of image to execute, but you pretty much achieved it to perfection. Great job! have a terrific day.
All the best,

Pattaya, some love some hate it, the latter is the case with me and my wife, we avoid visiting Pattaya. In the past 30 years we had to be there 4 or 5 times for business only. However looking at the neon lights of your shot, it has some magic, it is a very crazy place made for foreigners, what is the main reason we avoid it, we prefer 100% Thai environment, if possible. Excellent light management with available light and high sharpness. Well done

Asia and these omnipresent neons-they look really stunning!I´m really amazed how excellently you were able to expose the scene(I know it´s not easy even if you use a tripod)-but you did it perfectly.Sharp and clear image and...excellently captured lively atmosphere of Pattaya.

Spectacular night street scene. So many commercials!

A fine picture of nice old Thai traditions...;-)
A fine picture anyway, showing an incredible number of neon signs and a very crowded street. You have handled the artificial light well and captured enough light at street level to make us see the crowd of people quite clearly. The exposure of the neon light is also very good. In spite of the obvious excitement of the view this is not a place where I feel an urge to go.

What a cool night shot! I know many people think neon is a terrible thing, and looks cheap and tacky, but I feel that in some places, as you show so well here, it can make such a unique and colorful atmosphere. This looks like a very special place, and the angle you have chosen here to show so many of these signs is superb!
Really nicely done, thanks
all the best

Je me souviens très bien des marchés de nuit Thaïlandais. On dirait que tout le monde se retrouve dans la rue pour profiter de la fraicheur, des odeurs et des gens.

a thought provoking shot this so beautifully crafted and executed. The lights are the stars but I also like the distant looks on the faces of the people. Quite fascinating. Excellent quality as always.

Constant traveler you are, Serghei, enjoy your next trip to Spain.
Fine night scene, with all the marvelous neaon-sign and vibrant traffic of tourists.
Excelent night shot, clear view.

a very rich composition that fills the vertical frame with interest. There's a vibrant feeling both in the colourful upper part and the lower darker one. Clarity on the multitude of neon signs is amazing and there's great sense of depth in the crowded alley. Although the sight seems a bit stressful to me, i find your picture excellent and captivating. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Plenty of bright lights here and a lot of people too. Seems like they all are watching something. They seem to be quite absorbed by that.
