Hi Viv,....just got up in time to catch this one, before it was swept away.....I like the lines and light in this ...and the old and new......Looking at all your shots, rural and urban, I am impressed at how clean and tidy everything is in your neck of the woods...and as well, in this one how nicely dressed they all are.....and is there a glass roof over this square?...can't see any drains.....very nice Viv....Alan
Lol Thanks Alan and Rob - I never even noticed the Starbucks there - I was just intent on taking a shot. And I have often come across Starbucks in novels and the like and wondered what it tasted like - I will have to go back! Viv
Great detail and colors Viv. I thought Starbucks was everywhere. I have a mug now from one in Paris...perfect amout of HDR used too. Maggi

Missed this one Viv,i wonder why lol lovely image and i agree your control over the amount of Hdr is super.I am not sure i like the overprocessed look on some Hdr's but this is very impressive.I must give it a go
My favourite from this serie! Great perspective an angle. And yes, unfortunately Sturbucks is everywhere, there are just 3 in the main street of Sevilla, it's almost impossible to take a pic without a Starbucks at the background.
you are such a pleasant presence on the site and such a good sport about things.. I kept forgetting to comment on this... I think you succeeded with this photo from composition to HDR. I really like how the people were captured in this..."The poetry of photography will always be more important than the mechanics of the camera..." - J-H. Lartigue
Viv, I missed this one, I love the HDR effects from this and the bikers convention one. I have tried it myself but I just cant get anywhere near the same effect as you. Also, I am suffering from Vab withdrawal and I have missed your posting the last several days.The hidden harmony is better than the obvious. Alexander Pope (1688-1744)
