Lovely lit street, Mal, leading right up to the starbursts. I love how the light skims over so many surfaces. I hope Tonny accepts your warm invitation. smile

Beautifully done Mr. Smart. Not quite the Hovis ad feel to it, but a wonderful example od low light photography. Many regards, Neil.
Great shot. I like the starlights

No blurry figures stalking the street - have you taken this picture mal? I don't see any pubs so how will Tonny believe that this is your home?

A great dedication and I like the line of the street - like somewhere where I want to go. Even just to make sure if there are any pubs.
It's a cracker Mal! Maybe see you in January when I am in York with work?

It almost doesn't look real, Mal! More like a movie/theater set. Are you serious--this is where you live? If so, I'm enthralled. Why would you ever want to come to Amsterdam?! grin

A deserted other worldly street. I don't think I've ever seen York like this before, so devoid of life. The star bursts and signage keep it in our own century rather than what the architecture might suggest and maybe that's what gives it an uncanny feel as much as your toning- we're so used to there always being people in town.
Love it!
You could straighten up some of those wonky verticals in Photoshop Mal! wink Only joking- great night-time exposure, and how many assistants did you have holding the hordes back, or was this 4am?! smile

Blimey! Coulda sworn I saw this lane [or one like it] somewhere else today, but it had a guy laying down in it...is this a pic if your bedroom, then, mal? Looks like it is big enough to handle a whole double-deck busload of visitors.

Oh what a sunning street. So much of a vibe, so many interesting signs and great lighting. Love it!
Lovely shot Mal - really like the lighting.
Hi, My name is Tonny. It makes me want an invitation that bad.....
Ah - the Shambles. First time I've ever seen it devoid of human life so I guess you must have taken this on your early morning milk round? Nice one Mal. David

It looks a right Shambles of a place Mal, and you'd have thought they'd have put a pointy bit on that big church at the end of the street!

Beautiful scene. Great lights. A fantastic image.
beautiful romantic warm, a place with history, if only the walls could speak, they would be telling us great stories, like the image is telling us if we let our mind wander...
What a sparkling place! Great light and tones.

Man there must have been some serious cloning done here Mal to get rid of all them folks that are usually wandering around here...

;P

Or you just took it late at night perhaps...

Great light and I love the use of the road to lead you right in there...
You've made a magical picture that beckons us to visit this street. Luminescent.
This is the image class that I more like of your style, Mal! That texture, that depth. In your blog memory some this way. I hope that in this street (it is Here where you live) the cars do not circulate around those small side streets. Likey for my, by everything!

I love the way the light on the street and pavement lead the eye into the starburst light. Quality.

i've wondered over this year or so whether we would actually see a few more cobbled stone shots of york from you. i bet you weren't hovering around waiting for a juice. great tones.

I don't think I've ever seen it empty down there. York is beautiful isn't it.

I think I have walked down that street many times and it never looked as good as the shot you have done. Is it the shambles in York?
