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.
