Default Quiet cobblestone road in Stockholm

Hi gang! Been away for a while. I took this photo when my wife and were walking around Gamla Stan (Old Town) in Stockholm, Sweden. I hope everyone is having a fantastic summer. It is quite cool/cold here in Finland, like 65 etc.... It feels like we have only had two weeks of summer where it was in the 70's F. All the best. Ned

Like the vertical crop as it really accentuates the narrowness on the road and the height of the buildings. Wish it was cool here as we are 40 degrees Celsius with the humidity.

Regards

Thanks guys! Yeah, taken in difficult conditions... lots of high dynamic range... but it is always a blast to use my K7 and just do what I can. Thanks again! Ned

Very nice, I like it a lot. I think the composition makes the shot

Very cool shot, indeed! Nicely done, especially with that type of lighting. I'm another who's envious of your 65 weather - ours has been in the 90's, cooled off some but is supposed to go back up there next week. I'm fed up with summer already!

G'day Ned

I find the image unexpectedly beautiful ~ the image format certainly helps, the perfect verticals is credit to your composition too, but it is more than that > it's the way that you have offered us a glimpse into part of your world that is so very, very different to mine. I also am attracted to the delightful olde-worlde lights in the alleyway > beautiful shapes too

City scenes such as this do not exist in the great land downunder
So a question - how do they change the light bulbs??

Regards, Phil

Very nice street scene Ned. You have captured a mood in this shot that makes it look like an artist's rendering rather than a photograph. You have managed the difficult lighting and made it work well.

I had seen this on my phone earlier and liked it. But, seeing it on the computer it is even better. I love the detail you've captured.
