    Nice shot. If you could have gotten a shot of just the water mountains and sky only would also have been nice.
     
  3. The faint sailboats add so much! Great composition.
     
  4. A really out of the ordinary view!
    And another vote for the great composition.
    The processing works really well for me.

    Superb composition! And the sail boats add a subtle "middle ground" to a strong foreground and background that leads the eye into the image. Works perfectly in B&W!
     
  6. Thanks for the comments everyone. I did really like the way the chimneys and the small sailing boats helped to give this shot a period feel so I kept the processing that way too.
     
  7. Works well. Like the period feel.
     
  8. Wonderful comp and b&w! The background has almost a painted effect.
     
  9. Nice shot, I like the processing.
     
  10. Thank you Dayo, Dossy, Binnur. Appreciated.

    That chimney stack/pot design is being copied on current new retro construction. Looks great, what's old is new again.
     
  12. That's interesting. As this place was undergoing a lot of work I wonder if these are old or retro??? Actually, they looked pretty old. Did you notice the wires at the tops? They hold things in place to stop birds nesting on/in the chimneys.

    I don't have that look down angle to tell, but I'm sure they have some type of screen to keep critters out. I've seen a couple, but only on multi-million mansions that copy the old Tudor or Euro Cottage designs.
     
  14. Thanks Mike. I forgot to say that were lots of USA folk around at the time. They seemed to be enjoying themselves.
