Many thanks for the UA and loves from my last upload from Ullswater, it was a well received image.

Had a visit to York yesterday to see our son at Uni who got the train from Durham.

I've been to York loads of times for business but never been into the centre, must say I was well surprised how beautiful it really is. Timed it quite well for this street which I have seen a few times here and there, an hour earlier and you could not see the pavement for people. this is about the quietest I could get but still with people in, however they do add interest I suppose. It was handheld at a 30th of a second but I had to crank the ISO to 8000 to get to that speed, I wouldn't normaly do a scene like this at F5.6 but needs must I suppose.

Nice use of the low viewpoint, good exposure for the low light.

Knew this had to be York on viewing the thumbnail! Wink Been many, many times and never tire of visiting here, a great place for photography. A fine evening shot, with still some detail in the sky, and like the low viewpoint. You've been lucky to get it relatively free of stray bodies, it's always heaving with 'em along there! Smile

A good photo and it gets my vote. I think it might be even stronger with a square crop by raising the bottom edge up to where the pavement curb changes colour.

That 8000 ISO works a treat and at 1/30 sec you must have a really steady hand as the image is pin sharp!
I'm impressed!Wink
