So named by Danish settlers, Greenwich (Anglo-Saxon equivalent Grenewic) means the green place on the bay (vig, wich) or near the mouth of a river (similarly, Schleswig, Sandwich).The settlement later became known as East Greenwich to distinguish it from West Greenwich or Deptford Strond, the part of Deptford adjacent to the Thames,but the use of East Greenwich to mean the whole of the town of Greenwich died out in the 19th century. However, Greenwich was divided into the registration subdistricts of Greenwich East and Greenwich West from the beginning of civil registration in 1837, the boundary running down what is now Greenwich Church Street and Crooms Hill, although more modern references to "East" and "West" Greenwich probably refer to the areas east and west of the Royal Naval College and National Maritime Museum corresponding with the West Greenwich council ward. An article in The Times of 13 October 1967 stated:
East Greenwich, gateway to the Blackwall Tunnel, remains solidly working class, the manpower for one eighth of London's heavy industry.West Greenwich is a hybrid: the spirit of Nelson, the Cutty Sark, the Maritime Museum, an industrial waterfront and a number of elegant houses, ripe for development.

simple buildings which would normally drew my attention yet you managed to present them is very attractive way. The yellow and white colors on them make the picture cheerful and bright and I really love the sky with the lilac clouds. Well captured boat and nicely placed in the composition. Very pretty colors, good contrast and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day

Special light condition prevailed when taken this photo, Danos, gave the houses and sky a unique colors.
Looks as a relatively new dwellings built, as I rememberr greenwich a bit diff. in view from 8/1993 visit.
Boat cruising added some dynamic scale to the riverside scene.

Bonjour, cher ami Danos,
Quelle ambiance à travers cette composition !
La qualité générale est remarquable.
Félicitations pour cette réussite.
pierrefonds (57951) 2014-05-02 4:27
The wideness of the river is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the particular architecture of the buildings. The cloudy sky is giving a good conrast to the colors. Have a nice day.
jmdias (56605) 2014-05-02 6:40
very curious the shapes and colors of those clouds above the yellow buildings whose architecture is interesting too. nice idea to add the boat. a well done job.
fds (8512) 2014-05-02 6:45

mkamionka (30877) 2014-05-02 7:59
lovely apartments, I wouldn't mind living there, although the weather seems pretty bad. The purple color of the clouds results in an interesting dark atmosphere like in a horror movie.
Very nice capture.
have a great weekend,
Romano46 (18466) 2014-05-02 8:26
una eccellente proposta peu un sobborgo famoso ma che raramente viene proposto in fotografia.
Alla bellezza della composizione, si unisce una luce particolarmente interessante e dei colori saturi al punto giusto.
Una foto di notevole interesse e di grande impatto visivo.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
cornejo (32722) 2014-05-02 10:24
Hello Danos, very good picture of this interesting composition with the interesting architecture of these buildings on the bank of the river, beautifully captured in this interesting image with good sharpness, light, color and quality. Great job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy weekend.
Best wishes from southern Spain.
rigoletto (34269) 2014-05-02 10:49
i remember the song "purple rain" :) the houses and the boat look quite authentic. very good sharpness.
ourania (32789) 2014-05-02 11:17
είναι εκπληκτικό το πώς ο φωτισμός και τα χρώματα επηρεάζουν την ατμόσφαιρα και το ύφος αυτής της χαρακτηριστικής, ομοιόμορφης γειτονιάς δίπλα στον Τάμεση. Πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα και ισορροπημένη σύνθεση, με οριζόντιες περιοχές και πολύ καλό βάθος. Εξαιρετικές οι λεπτομέρειες στα κτήρια και αξιοπρόσεκτος ο δυναμισμός και η κίνηση που προσφέρει το πλοιάριο. Θαυμάσια η αντίθεση του ζεστού φωτός πάνω στο ακριανό κτήριο. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,

What an impressive and unusual sky that is, the colors are so rare to see! I love that you composed this predominantly red brick scene against this vibrant purple sky, they go together really well. Lovely detail and light on the buildings, and the boat is a nice touch.
Thanks as always
siudzi (34047) 2014-05-03 1:50
Due to the extremely unique and beautiful sky this scene looks superb attractive. You did a really great job here with a fantastic sense of the moment. Well done!
Have a nice day!
jacquest (18811) 2014-05-03 3:48
The colors in the sky give a very special mood to this composition. The small boat is well placed in the image and the modern buildings stand well looking to the river.

Γεια σου Δάνο,

Kielia (23777) 2014-05-03 9:07
a very well composed impression of this well known place. I like the perspective. The light is very nice and the dramatic colors are really fascinating.
mesutilgim (86066) 2014-05-03 9:58
Hello dear Danos,
Nice capture of this row of modern architecture in Greenwich backed with a nice cloudy sky creating a nice contrast.
Many interesting notes again.
TFS and have a nice weekend
Cricri (108037) 2014-05-03 11:06
Une composition intéressante, des bâtiments et la présence du bateau, mais ce qui est le plus spectaculaire est les couleurs et scène du ciel, fantastique
nikkitta (14992) 2014-05-03 12:45
Stunning colors on sky and river
They help to add contrast and highlight the common yellow buildings
Like the inclusion of the ship on the silk waters of the Tamesis
Good PP job, congrats
Wish you a good WE
mirosu (14972) 2014-05-04 2:17
Excellent view river buildings. Superb arrangement with quiet river water and river sightseeing boat. All in excellent light and nice colors.
Very well done.
delpeoples (53417) 2014-05-04 2:59
Hi dear Danos
Lovely colours and intriguing architecture. The yellow tones are very attractive and the boat in the FG gives is a good idea of perspective.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day, geia sou
omid266 (5616) 2014-05-04 5:42
Excellent foto, very very nice and dramatic view,
very well done and Thanks!
abmdsudi (44262) 2014-05-04 7:32
Like the letter box - a more panoramic crop with excellent focal of interest, vivid of colours, clarity and detail with the complementary element really work to good effect. Honestly i feel, you have gone overboard with the post processing in the sky area. Well done, tfs
elenimavrandoni (14259) 2014-05-04 14:21
Δάνο, κάνω διάλλειμα στήν δουλειά για να σου γράψω δυο λόγια...ναι καλά κατάλαβες..δουλευω και ειναι Κυριακή...
πανέμορφα τα χρώματα, ζεστά και σε πλήρη αρμονία!!
μια ομορφη περιοχη που παρουσιάζεις με ξεχωριστό τρόπο και την κάνεις να φαίνεται ακόμα πιο ενδιαφέρουσα κι ας ειναι συννεφιά!!
adramad (38854) 2014-05-04 14:41
An image of dreams, with the dramatic sky that seems unreal, with those threatening clouds, the modern houses all the same, have style and create a nice set along the canal in which the boat is a great touch.
An image to enjoy, with its beautiful colorful, high brightness and perfect sharpness.
Happy start to the week.
jemaflor (86054) 2014-05-04 23:17
lovely tones with these buildings and thhis sky, well captured and composed with the detail of the boat on the river.
Fis2 (86777) 2014-05-05 0:22
Interesting colors and frame.
Photo has climate.
Have a nice day
kato (11630) 2014-05-05 8:43
You're capturing well this Greenwich residential area along the river by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the group of modern appartment with the tasteful design and structure. And, thick clouds in the sky draw out a good impact.
fritzi007 (6619) 2014-05-05 12:33
very beautiful photo with high quality and information!
jcpix (13704) 2014-05-05 16:41
That is really some kind of dramatic looking sky hovering over the city. The purple/blue tones set a mysterious type of mood, and the few touches of sunlight accent the feeling. For a relatively simple scene, there are a lot of small details that come together quite nicely for the overall result...I like the many shapes and contrasting color of each individual building. Certainly more of a modern style, not what one might expect to see, which makes it all the more intriguing. Enjoy the new day. All the best.
mcmtanyel (14229) 2014-05-05 21:59
This is a very tidy shot of high rises in Greenwich. I like how you composed the photograph in three layers. The riverboat having just entered the frame completes the scenery.
Apurba20 (984) 2014-05-05 23:52
This is beautiful beyond words.
Great POV and colors.
PS: I am here after almost a month away from TE (for unavoidable reasons), am glad to see your photos again.
eldancer1 (28999) 2014-05-06 7:23
Awesome capture with wonderful colors! I like the design of those buildings, are they apartments? Good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
PiotrF (10082) 2014-05-06 10:06

UlfE (14641) 2014-05-06 10:31
You made excellent of the exciting lighting here. The houses and the boat really stand out. Also perfect sharpness and detail. Also very good timing with the boat. TFS and have a nice evening!

Δάνο γεια σου,
πολύ όμορφη παουσίαση της Ανατολικής όχθης του Τάμεση στο ύψος του Greenwich.Η εξαιρετική ποιότητα της φωτογραφίας αναδεικνύει τις λεπτομέρειες των κτηρίων που σεν συνδιασμό με τον πολύχρωμο ουρανό κάνει το όλο σκηνικό μαγικό,
fabbs99 (16739) 2014-05-07 21:56
Tremendous shot of the river and the buildings.Very well done,TFS.
Miguel82 (24693) 2014-05-13 9:16
The purple sky in the bg with many clouds is really amazing Danos, a boat navigating and a series of new buildings, educational photo note as usual, high quality of image, regards
Angshu (56060) 2014-05-21 0:16
The ochre yellow houses stand out well against the clouds...the repating pattern of the houses also makes it nice viewing. The tourist boat in a good place in the frame. Nice work!
Gigidusud (16525) 2014-06-08 15:46
Beautiful view on the city against a fantastic cloudy sky and nice violet tones. I like it!
umutlu101 (13545) 2014-06-12 0:19
une belle kart-postale
belle couleur,une saturation comme il faut
adores (38184) 2014-06-15 7:35
Good shot, with lots of detail in spite of the cloudy weather. I like the cloudy sky and and the little boat so well placed. Seems there's some sun light reflection on the building on the right. Good composition and very nice colours.
berek (40015) 2014-10-22 0:26
These clouds are incredible, together with architecture looks super.very balanced composition. congratulations.
