Lovelly 'period piece'. You've processed it well to bring out the 'old' aspect of it.
I do like how the light falls on the cobbles. That really makes it for me.

Very nicely captured and I love the way you've processed it as well. It really looks like it's from a different time.
My only comment is that looking at the vertical lines along the buildings in the photo it looks to me as if there's a bit of lens distortion.

Greaty capture and post processing. It really looks old! That festival must have been lots of fun to attend and to shoot!

Yes that is the only thing which 'worried' me about this otherwise perfect shot. Unfortunately, if this is a full size image there isn't really any room to correct and crop. But if this is a cropped photo I would certainly return to the full size photo and have a go at a little straightening.

Thanks for all the nice comments. There shouldn't be any lens distortion as it was converted using DxO with the correct module and thats usually really good. It is an old part of town so buildings may be actually leaning!! Must check next time I am there.
I did think about taking the bollard out but after I had done I thought it kind of stopped my eye going out of the frame so I put it back in, could well be wrong though. I could straiten it up easily enough, will have a try tomorrow.
