Hi everyone,

I've finally managed to catch up with our visit to Bruges before Christmas last year. It was meant as a break for the two of us but I still ended up taking lots of images! The following is a small selection from these but I will most likely start a Cities...Bruges thread as well to populate further. I hope you like the following and that they give a taste of a beautiful old city albeit shrouded in a couple of greyish days!

1. Heard it all Before



2. The Water Carrier at the Fountain sculptures in 'T zand square



3. The Looker



4. Typically Narrow Street



5. Typically Narrow Building



6. Creating Typical Fayre....



7. The Cinema



9. Welcoming Lights for Dinner



10. Love at #18



11. Canal Guard



12. The Green Door



More to follow at some point. Thanks for looking and comments always welcomed.

Best regards,

Neil.

Nice work Neil - despite some unhelpful light.

Having said that, the backlight in #3 works well. Nice framing of the form of the shoulder too. And the background works surprisingly well. Yep - my fave I think.

Great set again showing your eye for interesting details.

But the dynamics of #6 is my favourite
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Hi Neil, this is a great set of images with lots of fascinating details.

My favorites are ## 3, 4, 7, 9, and 11.
I like your use of the WA in #4, especially as the OOF part leads the view into the scene. I rather see it as an establishing shot of a video the moves further down the narrow street.

In #7 I very much like the juxtaposition of the old facade and the name of the modern medium - as if cinemas already existed in medieval times.

#9 is great as a composition, but also due to the blue hour's mood and it's another example for a narrow house - which stands out because of the lights and their reflection in the water.

#11 is a great find, very funny.

Outstanding in your set, however, is #3 for me: I like the abstract OOF background, the angle of view which you have chosen - and Tony is of course right about the rim lights.

Thanks for sharing these images, and all the best, Harald.
