Beautifully composed and your editing gives us just the right balance of light and shadow we need to appreciate that conflict in weather - the wet streets in the blue shadows, the parasols for cues, and the wonderful clouds and sun warming up the distant architectural marvels. A window into Cambridge life. Nicely done.

I can't think of a thing to say that hasn't been said. (OK)

Yellow, red, blue, people, and a wet street, what more can you ask? Beautiful! S-

Sorry I haven't replied to your comments before now, "too busy" is my pathetic excuse :oops:

This was picture was, in essence, a "snapshot". By which I mean spotting the potential of a scene and snapping it within seconds. This is my M.O. No long setup time for me, no waiting for the light, if it isn't there I move on. The only pre-planning I do is to decide where I am going on the day :)

And that, I believe, is the essence of l'instant décisif! Some of us got it; some of us ain't. (Y) (OK)
