Two shops in Beijing, in the middle of the night. The life never stands still. For this picture, I worked on the contrasts and the tones to give the feeling of being watching a movie.

Beijing, july 2010.

    Nicely done, I like how the interior lighting sets the scene and the foreground silhouette gives an edge – great composition, lighting, color tones!

  • Thanks a lot for your visit and comment:-))

    Superbe lumière.. j’adore cette ambiance nocturne où l’on sent encore toute la moiteur du jour !!

  • Merci mon ami. J’y suis moi aussi très sensible. Oui, je voulais que l’on sente la chaleur, les bruits et les odeurs. Qu’on les aimes ou non, toutes les grandes villes sont fascinantes, mais je dois dire que c’est en Chine que mes … disons “émotions urbaines” sont les plus fortes. Peut-être parce que c’est ma seconde patrie, et que je commence à mieux la connaître.

    Lovely work Patrick. I think it does have that ‘movie scene’ feel. An action movie where the guy on the bike is being chased.

  • That’s one of the possible scenario. Thank you my friend !!

    atmosphere magique
    comme dans un film
    j’aime les ambiances nocturnes

  • Oui, un film, c’est cela que je voulais.Et la recherche d’une certaine poésie urbaine, chère à nous deux, je crois.
    (Et merci pour le “fav”, j’aime beaucoup les “fav”, ils me font du bien.)
