This is a closer look at Mt. Washington Hotel. A distance view of the hotel and the introduction about this hotel is provided in my last post.
Many rooms in this hotel has been marked by the names of the attendees attending “Bretton Woods Monetary Conference”. I explained the conference in my last posting.

Hi Mr. Wes! If not for the van at the top, I can say this is a 'old', beautiful picture because of those vintage cars up front! Very good sharpness, colors and shooting angle! Must really been a very nice hotel to stay in. Thanks for sharing! rgds.

wonderful composition we and the lighting is fantastic giving you marvelous colors.
The elegant antique cars in front bring about a feeling of grandeur not seen very often nowadays.
The suv on the left would be better behind the hotel so it would not clash with the vintage cars.

Wes, it's an extraordinary composition composed with the old cars. I like the sunset orange lights iluminating to the building, it looks great. Congratulations!

The light on the hotel is nice Wes. If that USV would not have been in the shot, with those old cars this coulds have been a very old photograph. I tried a little WS for the fun of it to illustrate this.
The light here is well managed and you got really good sharpness.

Hi Wes. If you ever want to know the difference between old and new money here is your answer! Wow, what class and refinement. So how many nights did you spend there?? I love the warm light being cast on the beautiful exterior. Wonderful shot Mr. Wes!

Hi Wes. The afternoon sun gives a very nice, almost golden, glow to the elegant exterior of this fine place (I was tempted to write "palace" instead of "place"). Nice framing, and beautiful decoration provided by the old cars - I was thinking the same thing as Paul about the "timeless" mood this photo would have without the SUV at the left, and I like his WS.
aloyho (6798) 2005-10-01 9:51
You have really captured this at the right moment. The evening glow adds elegance to this wonderful building. The classic cars emphasized it even more. Excellent shot!!! Have a nice weekend.

Another nice picture of the hotel from a good POV. I like the wonderful warm light on the white facade, in combination with the shadows. The cars in the field are a nice addition, well done.
jhm (142067) 2005-10-01 11:58
I like the old cars on the foreground, what a luxe everything so the see. Very low shot with splendid colours. I find this better than yesterday with it to same building.
Have a nice weekend.
Thanks a lot.
feather (51130) 2005-10-01 12:04
Beautiful evening light. The same thing occurred to me as has been mentioned about the SUV. Without it it could be in the 30s.
Graal (99174) 2005-10-01 14:09
great hotel and interesting old cars. I like the colours (You had a nice light), sharpness and composition. Well done.
PJE (20758) 2005-10-01 14:46
Well Wes I am a big fan of low light and you sure have a beauty here. Looks also like a antique care show happening on the front lawn. The sun setting colors on the building is amazing. Thanks for sharing this perspective. Very Good work.
elihesamian (26149) 2005-10-01 15:27
In a good time you captured the view,nice warm light of the afternoon,good informative shot and very well worked with great sharpness,colors and also perspective,I enjoy it,Wes,
alvaraalto (6177) 2005-10-01 17:32
No, this is not a picture the use for a B&W. The light and the colors are too beautiful. Maybe you should have thaken the picture half an hour earlier.
Michael_Gan (2776) 2005-10-01 18:30
Wow Wes, great light on the hotel! The old cars are superb! If the modern van wasn't in the picture and you'd turned this picture into B&W/Sepia, it could have been a postcard from the old days... I just wished that the cars wouldn't be so much in the shade, but that's something that you could not change.
jjbach (9324) 2005-10-01 18:30
The afternoon light over the hotel is magic. Wonderful composition from a great point of view. Fine perspective too. The car in front of the entrance are terrific. Very well done!
cam (9041) 2005-10-01 21:26
A good view of the hotel under,what I would guess,is the morning sun.
Nice display of old cars,which has inspired PLD_images for his period WS.
The light and contrast are good.
Good pov to include as much as possible of the hotel.
Did you stay there?I did a few years ago,it is like living in another time.
ChrisJ (101900) 2005-10-02 4:28
Wonderful color & superb sharpness & lighting. I like the yellow / orange, -vs- blue. Good work!
Fixfocus (9385) 2005-10-02 6:23
Nice to see a close up of this impressive hotel.I like the evening lightmood with it´s warm colors.The classic cars in front of the hotel are a good detail.
jbweasle (9373) 2005-10-02 7:35
Hi Wes, I like this close up as much as the longer shot you posted before. Again the illumination is great although a few minutes earlier might have captured just a bit more of the building in light. I like the composition with the line of the building coming in from the top left. The old cars in the foreground are a good touch.
Steft (5975) 2005-10-02 8:18
This looks a bit like a building from southern Europa or maybe an arabic country.
The way the warm light is falling on this buidling is very nice. Those oldfashioned cars are a big plus. Only that red (Ford?) jeep doesn't fit very well, but of course you can't remove it, when it isn't yours.
Thanks for sharing!
john_c (24666) 2005-10-02 12:23
A superb rendering of this famous hotel. The lighting is excellent and I like the way you have angled the structure into the frame. The vintage cars not only enhance but neatly balance the shot, and its a nice touch how the white tire rims match the exterior hotel colour. The shadows on the hotel are pleasing and although it would have been preferable to not have the mini-van out front, it is not a major distraction. A great capture, Wes.
kclai (2267) 2005-10-03 23:01
Wonderful angle. It's good you got the vehicles included in the image, but not the whole building.
So, you could see the different when using f/11. The image will definitely be more sharper.
Well done, Wes.
jmdaoudal (82) 2005-10-04 3:25
Great facade, all under the light.
There are also these old cars that goes well with.
A good one, showing well the place.
I like it
mumek (20202) 2005-10-12 19:23
