I was running to develop this film before the shops close and everything just clicked together for a second. I'm not so sure about the exposure values but I remember this was the only shot of the scene. In fact that was film frame 37.

Comment left by: Olaf Greve (no e-mail specified) I like this shot a lot, as it has nice colours and an interesting contrast between the pale left hand side buildings on the one hand, then a 'separator' (i.e. the lovely lantern pole), and then the nicely lit buildings on the right hand side.

Comment left by: Jay Drew (no e-mail specified) Very lovely. The offset of the lamp left of center makes for a good compostion break. I wonder what this scene would look light later in the day at dusk with the street lamp lit.

Comment left by: Moose (olymoose@gmail.com) Another first rate shot, regardless of theme. Wonderful subject(s), color and composition.

But I do keep wnating to catch the lamp post before it falls... You corrected the perspective, how about rotating it 0.6 deg CCW?

Comment left by: Chris Barker (no e-mail specified) Well spotted. I like the colours of the buildings as well as the shape and position of the silhouette.
