Quite simply the most amazing Urban GRAPHIC I have yet seen. So well conceived & executed. Lovely foregound, midground (lamp posts) and background elements. Actually a clear blue sky here would have been so discordant with the tonal harmony of this splendid image. Thanks for sharing.

 

Cheers,

Kumar, India

Er, hang on a minute... you've already been told that you posted too many before.

Kumar... thank you for the reminder that I should be adding the words urban and city in my keywords. A bit of a Doh! moment on my part.

... see this fun contest can be useful too in so many ways :P

Hardly  about a day into this February contest and this thread is already looking like an Urban Art Gallery.

Thanks a ton folks. Keep this baffling quality & diversity coming in. Just about a month to go  :)  :P

One of the things I like about the challenge is that when it is a subject that I don't usually do much of I learn a lot by looking at the images of people who are good at that subject.

Villages are URBAN too.

 

 

From Latin urbs - a walled town or city. Hence our word suburbs.

 

Villages don't have suburbs.

Yes Alan I agree but the title asks for urban landscapes not suburban landscapes.

But the word urban means relating to towns or cities. "Street scenes" would cover villages.

Yes dictionary definition.

 

Also where people live and lay their heads to sleep is urban. At least that is the term which is in common use today.
