seriously stopping down to compensate for the harsh white lights in the name somehow produced some overloaded contrast and colour effects..The Astoria pub has been an institution, of the more raucous variety, for decades...apparently the former hotel now serves as a low-rent rooming for the seven star rating, that was most certainly self-awarded..

I really like the look your exposure compensation produced. Reminds me of a 50's movie in color of course. ~BV~

"Raucous" tell us more. Maybe best leave it to the imagination. The sigh has a nice glow.

David, this is a superb night image. Well done. Did you consider that Astoria has seven letters, so I think the 7 stars are for each letter. My thoughts. V.

Superb night shot David, with the red glow and this nostalgic sign. "V"
