Whilst wandering the streets of Parramatta I came across this rather interesting set up.
It seemed too good to miss!

A superb graphical image with great saturated colours and excellent sharpness. Very well observed and beautifully presented.

Hello Leslie ,
Interesting view of this high building , with the original green flowers (or hands ?) in the FG . Excellent choice of the tilt , and very good management of the strong contrasts of lighting .

Love this, Les.
The hands are celebrating the building like some harmonius gospel singer.
It's a great modern building, very much like some in Barcelona and looks even more interesting with the lyrical tilt.
Have a great Sunday,

Hands with six fingers ? I'd rather see flowers to celebrate the oncoming spring which everyone of us is so eager to welcome. The low-angle view and well placed foreground interest give the scene a great dynamic enhanced by the blue cloud-dappled sky. Nice photograph.

well chosen the POV with the two huge green hands to outlined perfect against the blue and puffy sky.The high building on the backdrop complete perfect the whole scenery.

This is a very catchy and attractive composition, which would have been even better without the blue flag. But what could you do? Cropping the right part would disturb the fine balance. But the part with the green... whatever... against the leaning tower and the fluffy clouds is superb.

this is different and unusual shot and I like the whole idea a lot. It is quirky and funny. Good POV and the well placed building. Lovely colors and perfect clarity and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

Hi dear Les
Yes, a strange set up indeed, but good spotting from you. I work at least once a week in Parra and have not noticed this beauty. Nice angled POV, great colours and light managment shooting into the sky like that. The graphism from the skyscraper is lovely.
PS: I was at your favourite place Curl Curl this afternoon and thought of you and Gladys

I love the sense of dynamism and graphism of this picture. Point of view and composition are marvellous and make all the elements, textures and colours included in the frame work superbly together. Sharpness and depth are superb and lighting very apt as it supports the role of each of the elements effectively. The contrasting colours are wonderful and make the minimal composition look richer. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Great and different! The sky was beautiful and you framed the hands, building and flag very well! A great low pov and magnificent colours!

Well, indeed! A nice graphic capture with strong, contrasting colours. Great angle to give the image a dynamic feel and a successful application of the golden third rule on a diagonal. Congratulations!
With best regards,
