Such beautiful light and detail! It looks like a fairy tale town... Cheers, pear (p.s. I really appreciated your comments re the forum elsewhere. I thought it was just me... )

Superb night shot, Axota!

If I can make you a recommendation, increase the sensibility, to 200 ISO for example, and use a smaller aperture, like f/8.

The right part of the photo is not as sharp as the middle or the left parts. By using a smaller aperture, your lens will provide better results.

greetings François

Rodríguez Prati~~~~I'm delighted you enjoyed this one Edmundo..I seem to have a craze for night shots..Only, I am getting too old for creeping about on cold winters evenings :)

tintisol~~~That's kind of you to say so, much appreciated!

peargrin~~~You are most welcome peargrin and your evaluation is gratefully received! As for the other matter, I'm afraid I cant tolerate rudeness and cynicism from those who believe they are above criticism! It appears to me that their elevated and possibly self promoted position absolves them from common courtesy! Enough said!!

BritPlom~~I'm thankful for your helpful critique Francois, I have much to learn and any tips to improve my photography is most welcome! I shall take heed of your advice and try those settings on my next night shoot! My biggest concern is failing eyesight making it difficult to determine the focus of distant objects! Clearly, your suggestion of a smaller aperture and more sensitive ISO value could help to reduce the aberration! I cant wait to try it!

To you all, I express my sincere thanks for your visits, precious comments, your endorsements and votes!

Kind regards :)
