A great shot Andrew. Interesting composition, and not spoilt with a flash. Cheers, Paul

Thanks Paul. This one was a little bit tricky because I had to get it with the ambient light being just right. Any darker and the ambient light would have been lost and I couldn't have used a tripod on that busy and narrow street in any event. It was also processed as a 16 bit file, even though I shot it as a JPEG. This helps exploit tonal variations with an extra margin of flexibility.

The 2 punters struck just the right pose as well.
