Greetings from the critique club :)

Sorry but this is going to be a bit short, I don´t really have much to say about the image. It meets the challenge in my opinion, no doubt.

However, it´s pretty dark, too dark for my taste and there is well frankly not really something in the photograph that is interesting. Sure, there are people walking there but this is just another shopping street to me. I would vote this a 4 for those reasons. It´s not really a bad photograph but compared to the majority of the entries in this challenge, it simply doesn´t impress me.

Try using a longer shutter next time and use the histogram for metering, what you see on the back off the camera screen in nightshots can often be very misleading. Also I find it much better to take nightshots in the city not really by night but rather around sunset or sunrise, you have then an hour or half an hour window where you still have a hint of light in the sky and that often makes a very big difference.

Kind regards from Iceland, Lárus.

Dark, but it portrays the mood well. A bit contrasty.

I find the image to be too dark overall. Street photography usually involves people in a candid style - but the people here are too dark to really see much of.

The nightlife capital of Europe?

This picture is a little under-exposed. I would like to see more from the bottom left of the picture. It also looks like you were using a flash and I can tell because of the undesired glow on the right. Next time try using tripod because could have a potentially interesting shot.

Really nice image, contrast between the dark pavement and the ligt building works well.

So who has been visiting York, I wonder? Stonegate always looks good at night when it has rained.

Nice capture - Like the tones and damp reflections - I think cropping off the right hand shop front that is blown out in the highlights makes this a stronger image as its very distracting

Is this the original Old York? :) It's a bit dark for my taste with not so much going on but it is street.

Wonderful. I like the subtleness of the lighting. Great reflective quality.
