    Many people have, and are helping me with lighting with my camera shots.

    And also with many of the basics.

    This is just a snapshot taken a couple of hours ago with my phone.

    Just look at all the lighting stuff going on here.

    Took it late tonight, downtown.

    downtown.jpg Portugal is very safe!

    Maybe cropped version is much better.

    I don't intend to use the photo for anything but found the lighting interesting.

    First shot is better, you allow the path to be a leading line

    +1. The first one is better. In view, though, it is a little bit overexposed. It looks like a twilight shot rather than a night shot. The subject is excellent.

    Like the composition and like the first one best. Would be a good chance to merge two shots. One exposed for the BRIGHT lamppost and one exposed for everything else and merge the two.
