Late afternoon sunshine bathes the ornate cast ironwork of the beautifully restored walkway that re-connects the “birdcage” bandstand to the seafront in Brighton, England. Lovingly restored to the original specifications in 2009 and now a wonderful example of Victoriana.

another great view of the beautiful stand... the low POV enahnces the geomtry, the light and shadow, the perspective view... light is gorgeous!!
Have a nice day

Hi Brian - another lovely shot of the bandstand. Your low POV here works very well; the sun is shielded by the railing but is casting attractive shadows on the right and illuminating the railing on the left and then the lovely patterns are repeated behind the bandstand too. Great composition al round1 best regards Rosemary

A photo with great composition.
Good and beautiful colors.

bella prospettiva con un bel contrasto tra luci ed ombre che accentua il grafismo dato dalla ringhiera.
Ottimo lo sharp e bellissimo il cielo blu.

another formidable perspective of access to the Bandstand.
Excellent POV from below.
Beautiful work with light and shadows.
Extraordinary color and perfect symmetry.

Nice POV and light. I really like it!
tyro (19780) 2011-03-17 4:25
This is Stunning!
The composition is excellent with strong symmetry and strong diagonal lead-in lines drawing the eye to the centre of the bandstand. Colours, exposure, lighting and sharpness are just perfect.
Of all the features, I think the bright reflections off the railings on the left is perhaps the most impressive but, then, the whole photograph has wonderful presence and impact.
Thank you for sharing this lovely picture, Brian.

again - fabulous quality - it is the first that comes on my mind when looking at your picture. I like the symmetry and patterns, beautiful light that you managed brilliantly hiding the sun behind the railing.
giorgimer (34818) 2011-03-17 4:27
Great capture, low POV works well, I particularly like the light and DOF
Royaldevon (28455) 2011-03-17 4:37
Utterly stunning, Brian!
A wonderful symmetrical composition, which emphasises the regular patterns of the wrought iron work, but gives an artistic slant from the light and shadows.
Very well seen.
I, too, like this type of shot!
Have a good day,

Great photo!! Wonderful colors, beautiful shadows, great depth and fantastic lighting!!

Bandstands are such fun to photograph - I have often taken the one in Eastbourne. I haven't seen this restored one in Brighton so I must take a visit. You have taken a stunning picture of the finest quality. The low POV and the shadows of the railings give a decorative FG for the beautiful bandstand. TFS.
misterB (2250) 2011-03-17 12:18
A fantastic photo. Great sharpness & saturation. Just goes to show that you don't have to follow the rule of thirds when you have such strong lead-in lines as these. Nice to see it shot from a low down POV.
muratcaloglu (2) 2011-03-17 12:46
composition, POV, sharpness, and colors are superb.

kiks (11749) 2011-03-18 9:50
Wow... this POV is also great! I like the goldenlook of it against the bluesky. I think i would choose to crop a bit of the left and right to het out the poles. Best regadrs

Excellent low POV and perfect hidden sun. The floor reflecting just enough to light up the pavillion's ceiling. Very Victorian.
david_P (512) 2011-03-21 16:04
Great POV and light !
macjake (54940) 2011-03-22 17:46
your photos are becoming better and better all the time, not that they were bad to begin with! :)
love how you have used the long deck and rails as perspective lines which converge to meet deeper within the frame. lovely casting shadows too.
nice work here
BluSimo (9392) 2011-03-27 12:15
you have chosen a fantastic Pov from the low. the figures of the railings obtain an excellent game of positive-negative, all in very beautiful colors, compliments!
have a good week
jafadabret (56501) 2011-03-30 23:08
Cette photo est d'une rare beauté avec la perspective qui aboutit au kiosque victorien. Lumičre, couleurs et graphisme sont au top.

Splendid shot where you well exploited the graphism and added a nice perspective which makes this shot attractive. The light is just perfect, congrats.
Nothing to reproach to this shot, really a good work, as always.
Have a good sunday.
gmg (4202) 2011-05-10 8:45
Interesting POV and nice light. I like the way you managed to cut the sun off the frame.
