The special atmosphere of the scene made this a shot showing some internalised tranquillity. The way the stationary people dotted the space, resembling the planetary order, which is echoed by the similarly fixed lamp posts, is perfectly matched by the misty background that shaded all but the more unassuming older buildings. At the same time, the mist actually dispersed the environmental light evenly among every elements in the shot, making the colour eye-and mind-soothing.
That is a real treat to any photographer.
