The Great Butchers' Hall (in the left) dates back to the 15th century, when meat halls were indoor market places with centralised sales to monitor the freshness and quality of the meat. The building has a remarkable and splendid open wooden truss roof. If you look up, the sight of Ghent’s special Ganda Hams hanging there will whet your appetite. The impressive medieval and covered Great Butchers’ hall houses the centre for the promotion of local East Flemish products. The ideal base to discover the East Flanders’ cuisine, from appetizer to dessert. Also arrangements for groups.

Quelle belle ville sur le bord du canal. L'architecture est de toute beauté et les couleurs grâce aux post traitement ressortent bien malgré le temps gris.

A most attractive and well composed panoramic image. The building coming in from the left hand side directs the viewer into the greater scene. Excellent colours and detail and good tonal contrasts.

Nice view of the waterways among these medieval buildings. The old butcher house has a very interesting architecture. Very good natural colors and clarity. I wonder how beautiful this place will look under a bright clear day. Thanks for sharing.

Belle perspective sur les bâtiments longeant le canal. La Halle aux Viandes donne une belle profondeur à l'image. Très bien fait.

I like this image - it is somehow quiet and peaceful and the natural a slightly muted colors help to maintain this atmosphere. Great architecture and shot from interesting POV.

Ghent provides fantastic views of its monuments and historical buildings. I especially like your chosen viewpoint to show off the classical waterfront buildings. Despite the overcast sky, the colours and atmosphere are just beautiful. Good perspective along the canal and a nice depth too. Well done.

un bello scorcio di una bella città, è molto interessante questo luogo, la tua nota lo descrive molto bene.
Immagino il traffico che poteva esserci in quegli anni.
Ottimo lavoro, come sempre.

ourania (34583) 2014-01-03 2:31
a wonderfully composed and framed view to a characteristic cityscape of Ghent. I like very much the decisive converging perspectives and the superb rendering of details and textures that make a fine description of this setting. You handled the weak and moody light very aptly and the chromatic harmony is really pleasing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

As you know, I love anything to do with food and this one is particularly impressive. I like the perspective, the colours and the historical architecture. What an amazing history and I wish these walls could speak.
Warmest wishes and a very happy New Year dear friend
