Hello Ike ,
I like a lot this scan , not technically perfect , but it looks like a painting . And the composition is excellent .

I'll agree with dta. The scanning makes your picture look like a painting. To me it seems as if it is taken from a book. (It could have been painted with watercolour). I like the general tranquility as much as contrast between the white building and the dark coloured ship in the first plan.
What's more, the former inhabitants of Liverpool, the greatest band ever, make it more well-known and singificant.

I love the buildings in background together the reflections in river.
The boat is a nice detail and pleasant for look
Sharpness and clarity are wonderful.

A beautiful composition with these different buildings and the reflections on the water, a good work in the scanned one with good color and luminosity.

A very interesting place scanned from an old picture. The building looks very big with nice architecture. I even like the pinkish colors in the sky. The reflections are nicely captured. A good place for a visit.

I take off my hat... Excellent photo! Good quality for a scan, it looks like a paint picture. Fine point of view and outstanding composition as a result.

Nicely done Ike!An old picture revived to show the beauty of a historical building and its surroundings!Very caracteristic and attractive boat, great reflection and sharpness!

For a picture of this age and having been scanned, this is actually a nice result Ike. The pink hue in the sky really gives it a lift. The overall effect almost looks like a painting slowly transforming itself into a photograph...I'm not sure if that makes much sense, but it has a strangely unique quality about it, and it looks like previous comments are along the same lines. You had a good eye already back in '93, this is a fine composition. Thanks for sharing some of the past, in a few different ways!

You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see yjr huge building faced to the port and ships anchored to the port. It's impressive in the color contrast of white buildings and black ships, too. And, the shadow projected to the river draws out a good effect in this image.

Hi Ike !!
a bit of old and a bit of new ..... nice view of this iconic city
Everything considered ...... you did a good job of scanning this old photo.

Beautiful scanned picture of Liverpool harbour Ike,
I'd like to visit the Beatles museum
Nice colors, good contrast
Cricri (122455) 2013-08-27 10:16
Une image qui date et qui vaut la peine d'être présenter, intéressante architecture et bon POV
colinbrenchley (6431) 2013-10-13 4:09
Ike - The scene from this viewpoint is now significantly different. The whole area is now vibrant with several excellent museums around the old dock area. Well worth another visit if you are ever this way again.

beautiful, perfect photo, very high quality, good information!
Wish you a nice day
mkamionka (39111) 2014-08-21 5:05
fantastic POV :) What a great idea :)
Although I get a lot of good words for having the modern buildings in my photo, I like it much more without them as here it is more open space and the interesting buildings are better visible and even provide reflection. I would build that modern architecture in a different spot and not hiding the main attraction from the main walking area.
Great quality, all my photos from pre-digital times look quite bad scanned. And negatives got quite damaged.
Very well done,

I never made it that far north in England. Liverpool looks like an interesting city to explore! Nice reflections in the water and good sharpness with dramatic cloud patterns in the sky. The dark boat adds graphic elements against the lighter toned bg. Tfs.

I went inside your gallery again. It's a treasure chest.
I like this one from the Merseyside a lot. Old industrial sites appeal to me. Well composed photo with the quays and the storage building.
Cheers and have a fine day

Ciao Ike, great view of fantastic building, fascinating reflections, excellent clarity, wonderful color and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
Periko (5902) 2015-08-03 19:42
Splendid building. You took this photo with a magnificent light and from an interesting viewpoint.
I am not a fan of The Beatles, although I like some of their songs.
mcmtanyel (25558) 2015-11-20 17:36
This is very nice scan of a terrific photograph. The reflections on the water are pleasant and the varying architectural styles of the buildings in the background make an interesting combination. Another great one from your vaults.
Royaldevon (40988) 2016-03-04 15:12
Liverpool is like a magnet for photographers!
Though there has been a lot of redevelopment since you took this, you have still shown the historic buildings to great effect.
You chose a great aspect, using the water to reflect the buildings and create a most interesting f/g.
This is a fine scan, even the colours have transferred well.
My warm regards,
