wonderfully controlled and composed shot this. The light is sensitively managed and the detailing enticing. Full of atmosphere and character. Excellent!

interesting photo with nice light and soft night colors. Good idea to place some people in the frame - it adds some life to the image and makes it more eye catching. Nice composition.

This looks at first as a very ordinary street scene, but the street ends with two very different buildings; a blue modern house and a green church. This brings a certain surrealistic impression to the picture. A fine observation!

lo strano albero di Natale fa bella mostra nei confrnti della splendida torre.
Ottima l'esposizione con il lampione in primo piano che illumina, ma la luce non da fastidio.

This is a nice presentation of the Brussels Old Town street. The tower in the centre looks interesting and eye-catching. The ad on the right side is a little bit disturbing but generally the view is great.

Superb composition, framing the narrow street in the Town Hall illuminated needle, which looks like a jewel at night.
Wonderful composition performed effectively.
Well done. I love it.
Enjoy the weekend.

Belle atmosphère dans cette petite rue de vieux pavés avec vue de la tour de l'hôtel de ville joliment éclairé, je pense voir aussi le sapin, enfin si l'on peut dire!!!!

une belle ambiance de nuit règne dans cette petite ruelle.
Très bon shot!

another cool narrow tall street view from Brussels.
the green lights really shine against the blues...and i think i recognize that blue structure - it caused a heated debate right?
good to see these inner city views.

The background colors act as a strong focal point seen thru' the atmpospheric narrow alley with excellent human touch. A fine low light shot offers a glimpse of local ambience and the feeling of depth flanked by old buildings on both sides. Good shot, Congrats
