I took this snapshot when I noticed the street lamp was out. I knew I could boost the ISO and not worry about over exposing street lamps. It won't do well, because it's not creating an illusion of some kind, or there is nothing rare about this photo.

PP: Opened in RAW, not as colorful as my jpeg, and I boosted master sat. up to 60%. I cropped it a little bit, before adding a think black border and sharpening. I adjusted levels on the pedestrians and lower 3rd part of the frame.

What a fabulous urban delight! I LOVE this photo so much. I have to admit I'm not sure what I'm seeing that's unseen. . .but who cares. The photo just grabs me in a huge way. 9

First off, I love city images, and night ones are even better. The fact that there is SO much light and the one lamp post is out is just a wonderful catch. Great.

I'm assuming the streetlight that's not on. It took me 2 mins of looking at ths hot till I worked uot what it was (perhaps I'm being thick lol) and I fear that the meaning may be lost on other voters
