Hello Francis, the PoV allowing us to see the reflection in the water really makes this picture a success. Plus the woman walking past gives us an idea of the scale of the artwork.
Best wishes for the holiday season, regards Jean.

Hi Francis, Nice Christmas presentation. Great POV with reflection on the ground well seen. The woman in the frame enhances the sense of scale of the architecture. Splendid lights and colours. Happy Holidays.

Bom dia Francis

Hi Francis,
The HDR has really created such a meaningful in depth vision of these Christmas decorations. Love the small water fountains in the foreground and the reflections are eye catching.

Ciao Francis, lovely Christmas decorations, fascinating reflections, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, Merry Christmas to you Silvio
