Shot of the Day #8

I love low pressure sodium lights, they produce such an interesting light and is the one common thing across nearly all night urban-photography making for a great subject.This was taken on the streets of Batu Ferringhi, Penang near the main night markets. I used the smaller aperture to create a more sparkly effect of the light source and to encapsulate all the surroundings with a greater depth of field. I really like the lens flare produce, some people hate it, but in this case here I think it adds greater emphasis to the subject.
