The clarity is exceptional here, Adrian - all the way to the lights in the very far distance. I like this very much.

Why B&W? - I think urban night shots produce some interesting colors - or didn't it?

Great night shot. Did you use a filter to get the star effect of the lamps? John

Thanks to all for taking the time to look and leave comments.

Steve, I have uploaded the colour version, you can decide for yourself. When printed the B&W version has more impact.

John, No filters used, each street light along this walkway carry two spherical lamps, I think its the shape of the lamps which has created the starburst effect.
