Underneath The Arches

By Jasper87  
Underneath the arches
I dream my dreams away,
Underneath the arches
On cobble stones I lay,
Every night you'll find me
Tired out and worn,
Happy when the daylight comes creeping
Heralding the dawn
.......................... John Farnham (how many of you remember this one!)


A cobbled back street in Ljubljana at twilight. Andrew Yu posted a similar image a while back (we were on the same trip) in mono, this is my colour version.

Iso 400, 13 secs, f16, on a trusty tripod and remote.

Good idea, and clever observation.
At first I thought... maybe a bit cropped from the bottom and also from the left?
But the longer I look at it, the better it all works.
Bloody awful yellow though.

The reflected light on the cobbles is magic, as is the contrasting colour of the wall at the end. Love it Dave.
