    Yesterday evening, I walked the city streets again, in search of a few good photographs. The following ones came out best in my opinion.

    On my monitor they seem a bit to dark.

    Sea of light is my fave, I like the composition

    The first one is the best. I think the last one would have been better if the people were more frozen by a quicker exposure (which probably wasn't possible, but I'm just saying) or blurred/removed by a much longer exposure...

    ...IMHO.

    Thanks a lot for all your comments folks.

    @Rachelsne: On my monitor (which I consider calibrated correctly) the photographs look just fine, I also checked on another monitor, where they also looked fine. But thanks for mentioning it, maybe I gotta revise my settings! :)

    @saltface: yep, you are right, I also considered this issue, it looks neither really blurred nor really sharp, but given the difficult lighting conditions, I had to work with what I got. Still I am pretty satisfied with the end result, the picture could have been better, though.

    The first one is really beautiful. Flowers look amazing in black and white.

    The last one interested me by the fact that the people in the photo weren't frozen. They're are moving, which I really like about the photo. It might just be me, but I really like that aspect.

    All of these photographs are amazing by the way.

    I really like the first three and I would like the last if it wasn't for the halos around the post and the top of the building....it looks like a local contrast adjustment or burning in artifact. The shadowy nature of the shots communicates very well the time of day and the feeling of that time...a slightly warm spring afternoon.
