Bristol view III
Bristol has 51 Grade I listed buildings, 500 Grade II* and over 3,800 Grade II buildings, in a wide variety of architectural styles, ranging from the medieval to the 21st century. In the mid-19th century, Bristol Byzantine, an architectural style unique to the city, was developed, of which several examples have survived. Buildings from most of the architectural periods of the United Kingdom can be seen throughout the city. Surviving elements of the fortified city and castle date back to the medieval era, also some churches dating from the 12th century onwards.
Outside the historical city centre there are several large Tudor and later mansions built for wealthy merchants. Of particular note is Kings Weston House in the north of the city, designed by Sir John Vanbrugh and the only Vanbrugh building to be found in any UK city outside London. Almshouses and public houses of the same period still exist, intermingled with modern development. Several Georgian-era squares were laid out for the enjoyment of the middle class as prosperity increased in the 18th century.

During World War II, the city centre suffered from extensive bombing during the Bristol Blitz. The central shopping area around Wine Street and Castle Street was particularly badly hit, and architectural treasures such as the Dutch House and St Peter's Hospital were lost. Nonetheless in 1961 Betjeman still considered Bristol to be 'the most beautiful, interesting and distinguished city in England'.
The redevelopment of shopping centres, office buildings, and the harbourside continues apace.

A very interesting note about the architecture of Bristol to accompany this well presented interior shot. The people animate the scene and create a good sense of perspective. The light is well managed. I like the warm tonal palette and excellent clarity.

not so often presented city here on TE,but judging by your recent photos very interesting for photographers.
Well chosen perspectivebetween the opened gate makes we feel "invited" to discover more this scene.You´ve coped also excellently with DOF,which allows us to take a look also in the further parts of the scene.
Have a nice evening

Bon rendu de la perspective de cette galerie bien éclairée par cette voute translucide.Les couleurs des premiers plans apportent un bon contraste à cette réalisation.

con l'aiuto di un POV ben scelto hai saputo valorizzare molto bene questa strada coperta nella città di Bristol.
Ottima anche la gestione della luce che ti ha permesso di mantenere ben nitidi e dettagliati tutti i particolari della zona ripresa conferendo alla foto un aspetto molto piacevole.
Ciao e buona serata

You have supplied some interesting notes with this shot of the arcade. Your symmetrical format works well, emphasising the regularity of the design.
The converging lines and reducing, overhead features, create a fine sense of perspective, as well as an effective guide.
Love the details of the adverts and the inclusion of the figures. It gives a busy atmosphere; shops need people!
My warm regards,

The sloping surface on the foreground makes that the people walking on the distance are located on our eye level.
Excellent perspective. Good light management.
I like the warm colours at both sides on the foreground included on this picture where white and dark dominate.
Best regards, Paul

Nice view of a shopping mall from your low POV. The row of shops and the roof presents good depth and eye-catching perspective to the viewers. The natural framing with the gate is also very good. Very good composition, like it a lot. Thanks for sharing.
