Fantastic atmosphere, Ian! You're such a master with these night scenes. It's a little anonymous with the people having their backs to the camera but invites us closer into the whole... ambiance, if you will, of the whole image. Magic!

Once again your night shots make me jealous. Wonderful.

Very nice night shot, Ian! I like the cool tones you`ve chosen for this image. Usually photos or films shot in France have rich and bright look and tones. Though you have chosen rather "northern" look for it which in my opinion creates a better atmosphere and takes us back in time....

The inclusion of the two silhouetted tourists really makes this shot.
