OK, not London and doesn't have a potions store but seemed an appropriate title for the challenge. Taken in Heidelberg, Germany while the sun was out for a minute or two.

this is a great example of an "unfinished photo" in my opinion, the longer i look the more i see, and wonder, what the stores are, why so many bikes where are all the owners shopping?

I really like this type of shot. I took several of these when we were in Ireland on vacation this past summer. I think the brick is a tad too bright but there probably wasn't much you could do about it. The colors and the bicycles are so "Europe" and make this such a nice image.
Good job.

Deb,
I'm loving your Germany photos. I gave this a 10. In fact, it was one of my faves of the challenge. I love the vanishing point and I think you did an excellent job controlling the lighting, which could have easily gotten blown on the cobblestones. Great shot!

This is a nice shot, I like the real life of this. The color is wonderful. I like all the people on the street too. This is a good shot for this challenge. I think it should have been in the top 40, but that is just me.

This is a shot in the dark, but is this Heidelberg?

The other Diagon Alley was better, they called theirs Diagonal Alley and was seedier. This would sit much better in a tourist book and is better photographed.
