I wish I'd had my Canon 7D and Sigma 10-20mm with me when I took this but it was too far from home to go back for a second attempt.

High contrast black and white is preset in-camera filter.

This is a new comment series for me, so please bear with me while I find my style!

(Voted earlier)

This is one of my 9s - I like it a lot. Furthermore I think it enriches the DPC collective portfolio. Put simply, I wish we saw more stuff like this. Let me tell you why it pushes all the right buttons for me:

1. I love how you've seen the potential in this scene and endeavoured to make a great photograph of it. The low light and consequent noise has no doubt given you a problem but you've brought you vision and editing skills to bear and I do believe we have an optimised image. I really like it when it's clear that photographer choices have a profound influence on what we are seeing.

2. This high contrast monochrome look is just perfect - it creates a great mood.

3. The canopy is a magnificent device in your image - it adds depth and perspective to a scene that might have otherwise been flat. The way you have framed to it and brought out its contrast is highly effective.

4. I like how you've transformed the scene - an ordinary food court now the source of vibrant night-time entertainment!

Overall - really well done, I like how 'crafted' this is.
