The Central Arcade in Newcastle upon Tyne, England is an elegant Edwardian shopping arcade built in 1906 and designed by Oswald and Son, of Newcastle. It is contained within the Central Exchange building, which was built by Richard Grainger in 1836-38 to the designs of John Wardle and George Walker. The Central Exchange is a triangular building which was intended to be a corn exchange but became a subscription newsroom. The building was ravaged by fire in 1867 and again in 1901, and in 1906 the Central Arcade was created within the original building.
The building is bounded by Grainger Street, Gray Street, and Market Street with entrances serving all three streets. It houses several shops.
i found the arcade whilst wasting time when my better half was shopping and thought it was stunning. it's curved glass roof and ceramic tiles i found very eye catching.

Splendid capture of this iconic arcade. It's such a pleasure seeing your capture with it's great detail and exposure. I wish I had such places to see and capture. Well done Chris!

despite the difficult lighting you have managed to capture the interesting details of the Arcade perfectly,I do particularly enjoy the colour palette.

You chose a very well angle, the classic angle, but always the most beautiful with a lot depth and perspective.
You did excellent addition of the people in background.
Also a wonderful architecture image with light and lovely colours.
Also a very well detailed picture with a lot sharpness made.
Excellent composition, lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

A splendid photograph.
I like the saturated colors and the harmony of tones.
You rendered a perfect perspective including the whole glass roof.
Have I a problem with my eyes or a subtle lack of sharpness (characters, flowers)?
Regardless, it is excellent!

Excellent use of diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. It looks a little like the Umberto arcade in Naples. Good color and saturation and the people add scale. I might have sharpened it a little more and added contrast to the fg tiles. Vibrant colour at left and nice repetition of patterns and shapes. Tfs!
