Detail of the tower at the front of the Iglesia de Santo Domingo de Guzman in the City of Malaga, Spain. The tower has a distinctive little galleon as a weather vane sitting proudly on its roof. The church dates from the 15th century and sits on the western bank of the dammed and consequently dried up river that runs to the sea through the city.
Regrettably I have found it necessary to add a discrete watermark to my images posted on TE as some have been hi-jacked and are now being used commercially on other websites, without my permission.
I realise it is impossible to stop people sharing images once posted on the internet and I have no real issue with that, it is flattering to know that they like them that much………but to make money from them is another matter and infringes copyright.
My anti-virus software dislikes the forums on TE! So please do not think I am rude if I do not answer any comments or questions raised…………

Hello Brian, my neighbour !
Very nice capture with good pov and perfect light management. The bright blue sky creates a perfect contrast with the yellows and oranges of the building. And the galleon atop the tower is the bonus of the capture !
TFS and have a nice weekend

The beautiful golden toned walls perfectly complement the azure sky. I like the point of view and the placing of the tower. Also, the wonderful textures to be observed in the old walls. A great image to view on a grey autumn day. Thanks for sharing.

une photo intéressante, avec le détail du galion au sommet. C'est bien observé, couleur et lumière sont très agréables.
Bien fait, bonne journée

Good Morning Brian,
Sometimes, the little details can make all the difference. This octagonal tower, so warm in its sunlit colours, with the imitation columns to project the view upwards, looks just stunning with its galleon surmounted on the top, sailing the blue skies.
You have controlled the light really well on this very bright day.
As always, impeccable composition.
Have a great day,

Good composition and some very nice architecture. The galleon is a great novelty, I want one for my place. Lovely tones and contrast with the deep blue sky

it appears to be a blazing hot day so you did ever so well to avoid any harsh shadow areas,instead you have used the light perfectly to reveal all of the gorgeous details of the tower and of the galleon atop it.
Love the golden colouring.
All the best Les.

I must have gone very close to Malaga on the train from Granada to Algeciras but didn't actually stop there. Nice to see what I missed! Wonderful warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and yellow orange facade of the building. Good sharpness and saturation. I like the 3 facets of the fg tower. The brickwork showing through the paint adds interest. Tfs!

Très belle symphonie de couleurs pour cette image composée dans le carré,les couleurs chaudes sont intenses et s'accordent parfaitement avec le bleu de ce ciel.

The visual effect here is eye-catching!

Lumière et couleurs au top pour cette belle photo de cette architecture originale.

The colours are beautifully warm in this well lit church and contrast so well with the saturated blue sky. The three small trees seem an important part of the composition as they fill a less interesting piece of wall that is in the shade. I love the galleon on top!
You have a wonderful record of this place with a first class image.
Kind Regards, Ann

Fine architecture, I guess that the southern part of Spain has some great works of art on the facades. A lot of Arabic influence as I've seen in Portugal. Nice saturated colors also. Well taken.

I was pleasantly surprised how much this scene jumped out at me when i enlarged it from the small gallery!
It hit me like a punch in the face, but in a good way.
Now this is some delicate and elegant architecture.
the colors are stunningly odd in this Peachy type of tone, very odd.
And who can resist the Ship at the top!
lovely sharpness and bravo for photographing this unique structure so well.
