Well, er the "hand" of God was not the first body part that came to mind when I saw this photo ;) But it's given me a good laugh. I love the play on words. I gather you're not a soccer lover, as the Hand of God in the 1986 World Cup Final is something many of us will never forget. I still have English friends that haven't recovered from it :) SEE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ccNkksrfls.
A beautiful photo, with an impressive wide angle POV. Good onya for choosing the B&W. You're right about them not being as "popular" but this certainly looks more artistic and professional than in colour.

One of the less common angles of this beautiful icon. I love the soft warm light, the haze and of course the stunning reflections. You create a wonderful perspective and symmetry here. The story behind this wonderful act of love comes to life in this photo.
PS: Sorry I've not been on TE much lately :(

Old dear Ana
There is beauty in all the ugliness. When I think of what Man is doing to the Earth in his neverending desire to take its minerals, I truly despair. The saddest part is that these men are also being exploited by the wealthy corporations in an effort to remain alive. The image is beautiful but heart-rending.

Salut cher JJ
Your homeland is delightful. Waking up to this every morning, would make me live forever! A stunning cityscape, breath-taking architectural details and of course the light on the water creating golden and silver reflections is the icing on the cake.
Congratulations, this is photo is a beautiful dream

Awww this is a beauty. Even though I'm not an admirer of cars, I certainly can appreciate the beauty, elegance and timelessness of this shot. And being a HUGE fan of Art Deco, this is right up my alley. Beautiful perspective, wonderful vibrant colours and geometries. A change from your spectacular wild landscapes, but a good one.
PS: Sorry I had to go Walkabout, so haven't been near TE. Like Mother Earth, I was in great need of some healing. Nights sleeping out underneath the stars in my swag has helped :)

Ciao dear Stephen
This beautiful barocque architecture reminds me so much of Sicily, particularly Palermo. But when I think of the geographical proximity and the history they share, this is hardly surprising. Beautiful warm colours and light. I like the vertical frame and the way you have accentuated the perspective.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely week

Devi scusarmi, sono in dietro con le mie critiche. Che un posto strano di avere un picnic! Ma per sicuro il tuo soggetto é andato bene per una foto. Ottima la profonditá di campo, i colori e la nitidezza. I tombi fanno un grafismo forte peró etereale. hai creato un'atmosfera di silencio e rispetto.
