I'm surprised the people were standing still enough for a four-second exposure to work! I think I'd crop the lights from the top of this one, though — they look great but they're so much brighter than anything else that it's hard to look away from them at the market scene.

I think staying still is probably easier if you're proper up a convenient bar! Smile Thanks for your comments - I was in 2 minds about the stars, but as that part of the market is the "Star Market", I decided to keep them... Might upload a cropped version without them at the weekend though...
