Pike's Market is a busy place morning until night, so it is hard to get images without people in them here. The exception is early in the morning before the delivery trucks show up and unload. It was raining and this added the reflections of the neon signs' colors to the cobblestone street.

Thanks for the votes! The other Pike's Market image was probably taken in the afternoon, so 12 hours and 5 minutes apart because there was no retail business going on at 10 until 5AM.

The reflection really makes this picture shine (pun intended). Good job on exposure and taking advantage of the street.

This shot has great colors and is well composed. I really like the reflections in the wet pavement...makes me feel like I'm there. Would like the neon to be a little sharper but I know that is a tricky so I'm back to bump you up to 8.

The wet reflections add a lot to this image. Very good job on keeping the exposure under control.

Tee wet brick streets with the reflections make this photo feel alive

About 5 minutes earlier than the other entry, got to love the market in the rain or anytime really. My guess you were about F/22 judging from the star bursts and black sky. Sharp image.

Hmmm. You were 5 minutes earlier than another entry, "Market"! Small world!!! (Ok - perhaps a different day.)
Excellent shot! Good luck!

Love the reflections.

You did get the whole sign in, but it doesn't have the "atmosphere" that the other shot of Pike's Market has.

Great! Love the way you incorporated neon into the photo... but it isnt the entire photo.

I love the reflection on the wet brick in this shot. Come to think of it.. Is Pike Street ever dry??

Reflection is very nice and so is the showing of the actual activity of the place..

Good use of the wet bricks, like to have seen the word Public all the way in the shot and maybe some blurry passer bys and framed longer in height.
Great job!
