wow, thats quite the building facade.
what i like most is how the facade has areas that are not perfect, parts that are crumbling and falling apart. It adds so much character this way.
too bad we can't get a glimpse on the insides too.
lovely light and colors.
is that an orange Fiat i see?

I'd be the one sitting here like she is, contemplating life.
can it get any prettier than this? Its easy to understand why so many Europeans vacation and or purchase property in Spain.
lovely blue sky, lovely colors in the water, and the baby blue trimmed hat is the icing on the cake :)
I look forward to your email about traveling in Ireland/Scotland

I always enjoy seeing these futuristic/modern buildings, and it seems like Denmark has a number of them.
if you look at it closely, it almost looks like a dagger or a sharp knife.
Its quite cool, lots of silvery/blue/grey tones.

awesome photo here.
and you're so correct, this really does show off the steepness of the seating arrangement.
It would be a real thigh burner to walk up to find your seat :)
can you imagine how this place looked when it was new!!!
thanks for taking this angled shot, it has worked out well for you, and now for us

now this is surely a boat to photograph :)
lots of textures, lots of grunge, and lots of colors to please the photographic soul :)
Marina's alway have something to offer, and i'm glad you found this beauty.

yes, a beautiful city indeed!
I only wish we had more time and better weather to explore it better.
You had fantastic weather.
this shows off Bergen quite well.
lots of depth, lots of color, and we can recognize some of the buildings even from up here.

first of all...stunning photograph!
the overall colors and exposure are terrific.
the light on that stonewall is A+, as are the clouds.
and the homes add a touch of old' time charm.
so many wonderful points add up to make a smart looking shot
Facade by rychem (26000)

I like how the focal point is offset, its not in the middle - a small shift to the right has worked well composition wise.
too bad they couldn't dress up the facade a little more, its the same pattern over and over :)
but there are fine small details to be enjoyed and appreciated.
enjoy your day

when i scroll down the page, the reds and blues are in total harmony.
love the way they look and seem to move on the waters surface.
you could have even left the boat OUT of the photo and we'd still be happy with the lower half :)
