gosh! Where do you rate this amoungst your fine images? You have to be proud of this. mal
urban8: Cheers, mal!
I don't think I could even begin to decide which shots I like best as I'm far too self-critical so find fault with every single image I've got on SC.
Sad but true....

Very nice capture of light!
urban8: Thank you Martin - hope the US is well this morning.

Looks like an older picture at first, until you see the cars. Nice lighting
urban8: Hi Nigel - I know what you mean, there's just no escaping cars on streetscape images!

super stuff John,the light on the houses is just wonderfulsmile
urban8: Hi Tim - it was just a snap-shot as I walking past the end of the street, took 3 or 4 then carried on, so turned out alright.
You be as self critical as you like John! This I just love and it is going in my likeys
urban8: Cheers, Bill, that's excellent!
Great perspective to the beautyful light
urban8: Hi Richard, thanks for the comment, I was blessed with good light.
This is good. Such an ordinary street but the rhythms of the architecture, chimneys, lamps posts, parked cars, really come across with the dramatic lighting. Well seen.
urban8: Yeah, terraced housing does have something special in the repetitive nature of the build. Ta, Ian.

The repeated patterns glow in the sunlight.
urban8: Hi Kathryn - glad you liked the main thing I like too!

Phenomenal, this is a stunner to me, the lighting, everything, a deep bow for you, my friend.
urban8: I will kindly accept your deep bow, Astrid, thank you.

Good shot John - my kind of street! Particularly impressive given that it is natural colour rather than a duotoned B&W.
urban8: Certainly is natural colour, no dogdy PS work going on here, believe me!
My version which is so so similar to this in its theme... is miles behind this in quality. I'm going to have to do some more fiddling before I post it. Great richard.
urban8: Thanks for that, and I'll keep my eye out for your shot when it's posted, Richard.
Who lives in a street like this, well I did once upon a time in my early days. Like the light on this well captured John.
urban8: Yes, so did I, Les, but the street I lived in wasn't facing in this direction to capture the setting sun so well.

Beautiful light. The lines coming from upper right part of the pic is making this very interesting. I start to think of puppets on a string. I like this very much
urban8: Glad you spotted the telephone wires, I was pleased they came out against the bright setting sunlight as they add something to that space which otherwise would have been burnt-out.

This is good, really good.

What is it about these mono/sepia pictures that are mouthwateringly viewable.
urban8: It's a good question, and I know what you mean! Whatever it is, it works for both of us, Ellie!
