    The effects of the clouds makes this seem like two images, beautiful amount of activity and stillness combined. Very vivid photo, nicely done

    Hi Nicolas
    Great combination of subjects, especially with the placement of the light that makes the structure look a little like pacman and that he is eating the light . The sky is dealt dramatic too, really nicely done

    Hi Mesut
    An interesting detail that for so many would be missed in passing. The old door makes a great backdrop too, and all under great light, well done

    Hi Barnabas
    Fascinating picture and note. At first glance I thought this was a windmill, with the concrete building behind being two sails. It's a very stark contrast of design between the playful yellow brick and the ominous grey. What is the building behind? Great post

    Hi Jean
    Nicely seen, the railings and their shadows create a very powerful and almost mesmerising effect. If I could offer a suggestion, I would crop a part of the left to observe the shadow finishing in the bottom left corner. I've uploaded a workshop to show it. I also made it black and white and increased contrast. The effect of the lines makes this picture a pleasure to pay with and view, nicely seen
    Cheers

    That's a very solid and imposing looking structure which creates a great silhouette. The light is cool and the bikes create a modern context

    Hi Murat
    A nice fun scene with the promise of lots of fun, but with no people visible it has an eerie silence. The comes off the sky are really appealing. This reminds me if the opening scene of the movie The Lost Biys

    Hi Peter
    There's a huge amount of interest in your photo, every building is something to study in great detail. Beautiful encompassing view and a wonderful sunrise breaking through and creating very fine colours in the sky. Great photo

    Hi Wolfgang
    Is a very impressive structure and give composed the photo beautifully. The level of detail in the minerett is really cool. I like the touch of red in the alleyway too, a nice compliment to the deep blue.

    Hi Silvio
    Amazing sight, the layers in the sky seem to be getting to mimick the layers in the mountains, and every element had this surreal colour and light. Beautiful scene, really well captured

    Hi Benny
    The statue has a very theatrical pose, and a very stern gaze. It's placed brilliantly against the city hall, so nice to see all the flags under this warm light. Nicely framed too, great photo

    Hi Robert
    Even without the sky you hoped for, you still got a really cool shot of this natural icon, the inclusion of the foreground really worked well and I like that cloudy threatening sky up above. Very nice result

    Hi Rob
    That realism is incredible, I would swear this couple were real if it was not for the fact they are presented in the gallery. This artist is very skilled to create such realism in art and your picture shows his work wonderfully

    Hi Stephen
    Look at that blue :) it feels like it's been a long time since I saw sky like like that. This seems quite a small church but the tympanum is very detailed. Like your previous post it indicates a great sense of civic pride in this town. A prefect presentation of this great little building

    Hi Krzysztof
    From this angle, the design of the building looks quite like a medieval church, and the cross in front reinforces that. The steps lead into the scene really well and the child and light are really pleasing. I really like this view

    Hi Mesut
    What a fantastic photo that does great justice to this man and his career. His clothing looks meticulous and the background is a perfect compliment, its busy and full of interest. The grey stone path balances how active everywhere else in the photo is. Fantastic light, great photo

    These girls certainly are interesting to view and like you say, they are framed so well and the so of rust red is beautiful. It really is like a glimpse into another life and another world for a moment. Really nicely done

    Hi Stephen
    Fascinating note, thanks. A very noble little building too, though small in size is been designed with grand things in mind. I imagine this building may not garner that much attention on a day to day basis so that makes it even cooler to see here

    Hi May
    Great to see the color version, thanks. I like the metallic futuristic colours and the flowing design of the building seems to be in competition with the flowing clouds above. Very rich combined blues and green with this beautiful design in the centre. Great photo, I really like this place
