I guess you are still using that filter - it makes for very nice evening pics. Great colours. I agree about the bottom of the building that should rather be included.
John Eagle: Actually it is a setiing on the camera called Twilight. And yes still using it.

Thanks.

The lighting is once again spectacular, John. Town Halls, believe it or not, is one of my categories/themes. I make sure I take pics of them every city I go in Europe because they are usually so full of character!
John Eagle: Thanks. I love architecture in Europe. Town halls, churches etc. There is a since of history and style. Montreal has this as well.
Looks like I agree with all of the previuos comments but I do have a question, how did you overcome the street lights, was it the filter Louis mentioned or was it done in post ?
John Eagle: The Filter (Twilight setting) on my camera did this. Not sure what the setting is comprised of. I will do some research. The setting allows in a lot of light with a 2 second expsure. And it some how minimiizes the bright lights. The only work I did in Phoptoshop was with Shadows/Highlights ever so slightly to bring out a little detail in the clock, and unsharp mask.

Top shot John, I really like this. Mal
John Eagle: Thank you.
Super, super low light shot John. I really do like the flare on the street lights, the effect is very similar to the sunset shot I posted on 31 Dec. The overall lighting is manificent, so we know that the setting (I prefer to call it a digital filter)on your camera works great. Very good work. Kind regards, Neil.
John Eagle: Thank you. Similar to your sunset, yes but your sunset shot takes it all the way. I am very happy with the digital filter on this camera. It is a nice surprise. I have to be careful not to depend upon it.
