    Beautiful image! I'm surprised it didn't finish higher! Congratulations on a simply gorgeous capture!

    Not only old but very artistically captured. Sorry I didn't get a chance to comment before the close (traveling).

    Thanks you all, the light was the tricky part, and that's why I opened the shutter as there was quite a large dynamic range. Jade, I think I can pick up the hint :). This was taken in the old city of Akko (Acre), it is from the Moslem era on foundations from the time of the crusades.

    The light in the distance makes this for me.

    Beautiful and timeless. Love the light at the end of the tunnel. Could be seen as a singe of better times ahead.

    Reminds me of my hometown. I am curious where it is.

    Excellent composition and use of lighting; placement of the lighted archway and the vanishing point.

    Nicely composed, bw suits well here. My 1:st choice.

    nicely handled light. Leads us into the old quarter of town. Probably lacks some interest...a person, some chairs, some flowers etc. But you shot what was there well.

    Not the greatest scene for an old city but not the worst either. Nice light and shadow effect with some sense of depth. You've done a nice job in avoiding the blown highlights while capturing the depths of shadow. I would guess this was not taken midday in bright sun judging from the 1/4s shutter.

    would the colour give a larger choice of tones. that said the mix of light and shade which draws the eye through te picture. the alley shows changes as time has gone on. drainage and lighting come to mind

    One of my top favorites, great composition and texture, fits the category perfectly.

    probably my number one pic. i like everything about it (except for the pvc drain pipes and electric conduit :) )
it is odd but it all balances out with darkness and light, something i'd like to keep in mind more often when i try to compose a shot. nice going.
