The Christmas Market at Night

December is coming, and the Manchester Christmas Markets are already in place. Say what you will about having how wise it is to have Christmas Markets on in November, I like going there. They have waffles and pancakes.

And mulled wine.

We were out at night the other day when I got these shots. I tend too underexpose shots at night to eliminate light pollution and contrast light sources against the dark background.

I really prefer the black and white shot for this. It eliminates the different types of lights and simplifies the picture, focusing on the essential. Here’s the colour version for comparison.

Which do you prefer?
