...I can tell you - it became really cold while I was taking this shot.

Comments are certainly welcome,

enjoy! :)

apart from the soft well exposed light and gentle colours the interest for me is the contrast between the nearest dwelling and the row of symetrical and like homes. The closest doorway is cold with no lights inside and almost sad compared to the festive row of happy houses bursting with light and vitality. Normally I'd say try and traighten the verticals but with them leaning slightly back and balanced by the long perspective of the road I think it gives the image an open feel. If you removed cars I can't see where ! I enjoyed this image! well done

What a wonderful capture. I love the feeling of those silent winter nights, where you're all alone in the streets, slightly illumintated by fairy lights, and every now and then you can see or hear the people inside the houses and get a glimpse of their happy time together. Your picture portraits this perfectly.

Apart from the feelings I like that the photo looks soft and yet sharp. I don't know much about the technical aspects of photography, but I dare say that this is a high-class picture.
