So cool. It almost looks like a painting.

That is such a great photo... looks almost simplistic like a children's book... well done.. great work.

This looks quite different to me. It seems as though all the lights shine with the same brightness. Almost a fauls light and all the shadows with the same shade of grey. Now this is black and white and I love black and white but it seems almost surreal. Im not quite sure about this. An excellent photograph nevertheless.

A black and white night picture is always difficult to execute and this one seems to have been done with perfection. Lovely play of light and dark areas.

Like M. Clendenen, ......     it reminds me of a dollhouse in that if one could peer in the various windows, one would see many different people living individual lives of joy and sorrow and the various journeys we are all on.      The outward appearance of perfection is contrary to the truth of the complicated lives we all lead.       Love the black and white appearance; even though life has a lot of gray colors at times.      Inspiring and haunting!

Spectacular photograph.And it could only be as is, in black and white.The lights are alive, giving the darkened windows a wonderful contrast for the whole shot. A pretty building as well,to help it along. j.e.s.......
