I have seen here some great photos of Liverpool from Kamilutka, emka, mjw364 and others so I realize I have no chance to be very original. Still I would like to mark this interesting place on my TE map. I had a reasonable weather throughout the day and almost no rain. However the wind was quite strong and with our little daughter we could not spend too much time along the waterfront which is the most attractive area in Liverpool. For the same reason I could not stick around for the blue hour. In spite of that I really enjoyed visiting Liverpool.
In this photo you can spot Liverpool's Three Graces, the Royal Liver Building, Cunard Building and Port of Liverpool Building at the Pier Head.

I've missed you! I hope that you and your family are all well.
This is a lovely photograph from Liverpool even although it might not be all that terribly original. But it does bear all your hallmarks of a very fine composition, lovely light, true colours and exceptional details and sharpness.
The light on the buildings is superb and the black pear-shaped bollard in the foreground holds the composition together very well. Even the two seabirds on the right add foreground interest.

Misfortune of being in Europe where all have been photographed and you must find an original POV
My first view of Liverpool waterfront, only know the city because of the Beatles and believe it was old and and without interest
Find here good buildings water and seagulls enjoying sun
Excellent postcard received and commented

This is a nicely composed shot with the inclusion of the dock in the foreground and the fine architecture in the BG. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has fine sharpness and detail.

cześć Mariusz, A więc jesteście w Liverpoolu! Mam nadzieje, ze Ci sie Liverpool spodobał, tak jak mnie. I szczęśliwie calkiem niezła pogodę mieliście. Oryginalny kadr z tej strony. I wszystko sie zmieściło, i trzy gracje i kawałek muzeum i nawet mewy sie załapały. Jak zawsze, super zdjecie.
Chris przyjechał do Warszawy, dziś trochę pozwiedzamy :).
A ja juz zaczynam sie pakować :)

You are too hard on yourself!
This is an original shot from the Albert Dock area!
You have such a good eye for composition and have, therefore, stamped your style on the view.
Most people get the 'red' from the dock itself or from the moored BAR ship but you have used the Great Western Railway building.
You have developed a great sense of depth with details that are sharp and accessible.
Have a lovely day,

This is a very elegant postcard of the iconic buildings of Liverpool. The central view is nicely framed by the more modern structures, and towards the right I like the signs of GREAT WESTERN RAILWAY. The inclusion of the seagulls and the black bollard in the foreground is a nice feature.
williewhistler (15683) 2014-08-20 4:19
such an interesting composition with the curved dock and sea gulls in the FG adding a nice feeling of depth to the shot.
The three buildings dominate the scene being wonderfully well lit and pin sharp. Nicely done indeed.

J'aime beaucoup cette image. La ville à très bien récupéré ses quais et en a fait quelque chose de très beau. Le point de vue est excellent et la lumière parfaite.
ikeharel (63925) 2014-08-20 7:52
Must show you THIS, you can see how the modern black edifice obsecuring the magnificent building of the old warehouse.
Your pic. show beautifully the modernism at the Liverpool port had gone under renovations lately.
Exquisite photojob, cheers.

iconic shot of Liverpool this. Superb clarity that shows us the old and new of this famous city. Love the fg interest too here it adds depth and originality to this fine image.
Like London it has changed a lot in 20 years.
macjake (62350) 2014-08-21 4:24
long time no see again.
good to have you back with a new photo.
is it just me or does it seem to be that Liverpool has made some sort of comeback or some sort of revival of late.
lots of interesting photos on TE from here recently.
i think there's a good combinatoin of old and new buildings in this one scene.
sharp, clear, well it and well exposed.
looks like you took this photo at 2:20 :)
fine post as always!

Ciekawa mieszanka architektury.
Dobre swiatlo i kolorystyka.
Podoba mi sie wieza i kopula.

A great location for photography, superb architecture and great views that you find a strategic spot. There's lots of coloured details and interest within the scene for the eye to linger Bright, superb clarity and excellent overall contrast. Fine lens works, TFS

A city that have seen few images, this seems sensational, with a great contrast between the styles of buildings, which focus for my photo, I find the most beautiful, the dock adds a touch of great charm.
Very nice range of colors.
Superb management of both the brightness and sharpness.
Well seen and done better. I like it
Have a nice weekend.
PaulVDV (24753) 2014-08-22 21:45
Along its waterfront Liverpool has a wonderful combination of old and new architecture.
Excellent composition and depth.
The seagulls make the foreground more attractive.
Liverpool certainly looks attractive here.
Best regards, Paul

Nnice view on this part of the city with an interesting difference of architecture
Very good lights ambiance

I know the liver building well, it's one I have always admired from afar, but I have never ever seen it presented in this way, so this is a beautifully new view to my eyes anyway! The contrast of the new with the so well know traditional is very striking and creates a very interesting scene, especially when captured under this really beautiful light and that vibrant blue sky. Cool shot.
npecanhuk (70876) 2014-09-10 20:00
Some attractive and interesting buildings back there... specially the "old" ones!
A very beautiful picture too!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov and composition really pleased me here once more!
I love the couple of seagulls in the lower fg!
TFS - congrats,
