Under the atomium in Brussels, with the Sigma 12-24 mm. First trial of that lens on my 5DII, can you imagine that: 12 mm focal lenght - but not a fisheye - on a full frame sensor: impressive angle, and decently sharp above f/11. f/22 here, with the added bonus that it creates the "stars" around every light source.
+ 0.7 exposure's correction, compensating the bright light.
Minimal processing (levels, colors, denoise, sharpening)

Cool lights and interesting angles. Too bad about the building on the right detracting from it all.

I like this photo. As I like abstract photos, where the viewer is forced to ask himself - what am I seeing here? I would crop out the buildings, leaving only the "stars" and the sky.
