    Match Day

    Taken today, England and Austria were playing football in the city.

    Not usually one for selective colouring.

    perhaps it's an empty street because everyone's in the pub watching the game?

    It is a great shot. You say that you aren't into selective coloring, but I think it definately works here!

    There are subtleties that suggest it. bare in mind this is in the middle of a big city by british standards.

    Thanks for the coments all.

    That is why in my language we call these matches that almost everyone wants to see on TV (or even live, in the stadion) "street sweepers" ... suddenly for 90 minutes the streets seem to be "swept clean of pedestrians and cars". Everyone is inside watching the match :).

    I think you captured the situation perfectly here!

    With a bag painted as red as that, the cops coming towards him are gonna wonder why it's not black and white like the rest of the photo. hehehe.

    Very nice photo though! Very football season too!
