View from Cathedral Step - 街の光景

Trafalgar Street, Central Business District, Nelson, New Zealand

Nikon D200
AF Zoom-Nikkor 35-135mm F3.5-4.5 @ 35mm
F3.5, 1/160, ISO-100

It's a bright Sunday Afternoon.


  1. Nice vantage point. This is so Nelson, although the bright sunny day not always so.

  2. Beautiful light, grayscale tones and composition. The sun is up but I guess is pretty cold...

  3. Terrifically interesting street and photograph!

  4. oh! You changed your site! :-)

    Love this image. The tones are perfect. The eye is drawn between the two posts nicely.

  5. Ben, this one's a stunner! Excellent gray scale, meticulously lined up and framed, absolutely filled with interest. Although it is a street scene it reminds me of a formal garden, probably due to the foreground stonework and the trees. There are so many places that the eye can wander and explore here. You have chosen a good time of day to catch the light glancing on surfaces giving nice contrasty accents. It has everything: depth, perspective, light, shadow, textures and a good point of view. I think the choice of b&w was definitely the best choice and that has also helped to make this work so well.

  6. beautiful view and Black and White imagery gives it a classic touch...

  7. I prefer this over the color version as it adds a timeless quality to the photo

  8. Thanks, everyone!
    I didn't expected such a good feedback, but I'm really happy!

    Dawn, the change I made were mainly the colour schema, stretched width to accommodate larger photo. I was trying to say "not much change here", but it is a bit of change, isn't it.

  9. i love the composition of this and the light
