This distinctive terraced crescent is on the seafront in the City of Brighton, East Sussex, England. The houses were built in the late 18th and early 19th centuries and it was the first Brighton development specifically built so as to face the sea. The grand scale was to attract middle to upper class tenants as it became fashionable and therapeutic to spend time by the sea. The buildings are Grade II listed and have had many famous tenants over the years.

Good Morning Brian,
What a fine pov you have chosen, giving strong upper and lower curves to really accentuate the shape of this terrace. The light is excellent, bringing out the lovely architectural details.
Those red chimneys, so characteristic of the period, add a final bit of colour against the blue sky.
Have a lovely Sunday,

Splendid, interesting viewpoint and the composition is excellent with good depth. Beautifully sharp, and nice clarity with excellent textures, rich colors and fine detail. Strong vertical lines balanced by the diagonal and the warm light nicely contrast against blue sky areas. Excellent piece of architechural photo, Congrats

Hello Brian - A fine shot of this elegant curving terrace. The composition is crisp and clean with the B&W details beautifully managed. The chimney pots and slice of blue sky add the perfect touch of colour contrast. How much to buy one? More than I can afford I'm sure! Enjoy your Sunday. Rosemary

Brighton ever remembers me the elopment of Lydia Bennet, in Pride&Prejudice. The buildings are just of the age to be present at the JA time. I'm glad to see a clean and loyal image of what I have not see (so far).

il ripetersi dello stesso motivo architettonico ha creato un bell'effetto grafico, rendendo allo stesso tempo l'immagine molto piacevole e dinamica.
Un caro saluto.

good play with the curved houses, perfect framing of this typical street.

Funnily enough, I always thought that "Royal Crescent" was in Bath but obviously there's more than one! It certainly looks a pretty posh place.
Your picture is beautifully composed with the lower line of the railings appearing at bottom left and sweeping around to draw the eye right along that wonderful façade. Incredible detail and sharpness, perfect exposure and lovely colours, right up to the lovely red chimney pots against a lovely azure sky.

I really do enjoy viewing these row homes, and how you present them to us.
its the repetitive pattern theme, over and over again.
Its very attractive visually.
excellent light and smart compo, with the curb coming out of the bottom corner on the left.
delpeoples (52497) 2012-04-04 6:31
If these famous walls could only speak eh? Fantastic graphism, light and perspective. You chose the vertical frame expertly. Beautiful definition and play of light and shade.
Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day
