This is something I feel I so often overlook - well you know what I mean,(figuratively - not literally). The sun was in a great position on the grey slate- with the dark clouds-- Although I have now lived in Banbury for nearly ten years I have also never noticed the wonderful brickwork - which I believe to have come from the Victorian era- I stand to be corrected.. ( well not literally)

Let me be the first to congratulate you on 'looking up'; there is so much we all miss by keeping our heads down.
You also caught some great light, which really makes this picture.
I will not bore you with the normal platitudes of great pov, dof, clarity etc - they are really a given ! I will say you have got the colours just right though, an area where folk so often fall down - well not literally of course !
PS I did call yesterday...

You took these nice picture with the best lens of Canon.
With these lens can you all details make of an incredible sharpness.
We get a nice silver light on the roof, this gives an extra touch at the picture
Colors are excellent, sharpness and composition pleasant.
Very well presentation, excellent captured.
Nice done, TFS.
Have a nice Wednesday,

Hello Rich - I too have noticed similar decorative brickwork in Stratford-on-Avon and marvelled at the fact that 'ordinary' houses were built with such love and attention. This is a great shot, the sunlight on the roofs adds an attractive liveliness and the architectural details are nicely captured. The decorative brickwork was seen in both Victorian and Edwardian houses.
Warm regards Rosemary

Rooftops, architectural details and urban environment are very interesting!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov, vertical format and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,

you have found a nice light that illuminatres the slate tiled roof. Interesting architectural detail and as someone has already said, congrats on raising your eyes.

Clear and very good one. I enjoy the sharpness and the reflection on the roofs. Once again, the framing is very well seen.

I really like them in England in the filtered light. Especially nice-looking pictures so be prepared. It is true that such images to be made, there must be filled to 10 to 15 days, or to live there :-)
Especially beautiful in grays and other colors. AkompozÝciˇ calm and the picture of the architecture of the English part. Good job.
Have a nice day!
