The rest of medieval walls around the town Nymburk.
I have a problem with this picture. It seems to me that the lights on the left attract much attention. What is your opinion?

Greetings Vladmir, I think that the warm glow from these lights, which highlight the pathway & the benches, balance well with the larger area of the castles whiter floodlights, they also bring a piece of our modern time into that of the medieval time of this castles architecture. I think it is a stronger composition having these lights as opposed to one without them, just my two cents worth. TFS
Have posted a WS to better show my point of view.


Hi Vladimir,
I do think the lights on the left give a neat balance to the image as a whole. Nicely exposed and good depth. The sky has made for an attractive BG.

Hi Vladimir

Attractive and interesting subject, nice lighting, well composed with a good balance. Plus no noise from such a long exposure, good result.

I like Ron's workshop, as it illustrates the lack of balance without the lights.

Interesting sharp image using long exposure here. My eyes first goes towards the lighter shade of the wall at the left. Overall a good nocturnal shot.

Hi Vladimir, Very nice night scenery with super perspective. Speaking of light, the front ground and the bases of the architecture are under exposed a bit and can be corrected by the PP works. Over all this is a nice night nocturne scenery. Wonderful DOF and with warm golden tones. Thank for sharing
