Aren't you now exaggerating a little? Great night shot, fashion and nature photo all in one. I hope you can take this as a compliment: it seems to me you are becoming a dangerously talented paparazzi. I'm glad to live so far away :). Your whole night shot series here: great work!

sixten_imgs ~ LOL ~ Um.... OK well just a little bit perhaps :)) Not at all sure about the Paparazzi bit even when intended as a compliment :)) ....but really pleased that you like the series and that is all that matters :) Best wishes ~ nick

Good shot Nick,

really has to be viewed in full size, unfortunately my connection from Malaysia is now very slow. It took two minutes to open it in full size.

The only thing you could do to improve it would be getting rid of those reflections. Have you tried polarizing filter?

Best wishes, Timo

tmoj ~ I'm very pleased that you took the time and trouble to open this shot fully up Timo as there is so much to find within the picture.

I think that the reflection does not detract and actually sort of adds to the street aspect of the shot.

I'm not very fond of using filters and not at all sure that a polarizing filter works on eliminating reflections. I doon't even bother to take my filters with me these days.

I'm sorry this shot took two minutes to download, that is one of the reasons I usually upload much smaller files, but sometimes when there is a lot of detail to be found then I upload very large files.

all the best to you ~ nick

Hi Nick,

of course it is question of taste and I admit the reflections can give it a real touch, without them it could look too sterile.

I still prefer bigger size files, because in most cases you only can really enjoy the picture in full size. It's quite frustrating when people only upload very small files, because they at´re afraid of the images being stolen. It really spoils the otherwise good picture.

Best wishes, Timo

Hello Nick. You have so many beautiful Christmas pictures. Wonderful image. YSL Greetings from Cri

Nick Weall on December 15, 2011

* *Cri Photo** I'm glad that you have enjoyed them Cri ~ Thanks a lot for the YSL too ~ Best wishes to you ~ nick

tmoj ~ The trouble is that some images do get stolen or borrowed :) For most of us that is probably not such an issue and might even be flattering now and then. Of course if a shot really hit the big time then I guess you could invoke the copyright issues and maybe get a share of the loot :)) I enjoy taking pictures and enjoy others looking at them ~ that seems far better than the shot shut away in a private file or album. Horses for courses maybe. all the very best to you Timo ~ nick
