Harald,
Love this set - the variety of old, new, geometry, details, reflections. You really should look into your next career as an architectural photographer.

Number 13 is really really good. Great catch. You’ve killed it with this set. Tfs.

A wonderful set which will cause me to put on the telephoto when I am next in a big city - inspirational - thank you.

Great work, it seems one of your specialties .. For me the shots with reflections work well, like #12 and 13. TFS Harald .

Okay, back for another look - who could only look once at this fabulous set? In a close race, I like #7 edging out #14 by a nose with 12 a close third. All are unique, not what is usually seen of these types of shots.

Hi Harald,

What a great series! You clearly have an 'eye' for this type of image - carefully chosen compositions and eyelines to create the most impact from the scene and it's a series that hangs together really well. In fact, in 'camera club' terms this would make an excellent and powerful 'Panel' or themed set and prints would be a very interesting end-point to this set.

Favourites? Hard to tell really but, for me and personal reasons, I'd go for #'s 3, 4 (love that repetition), 6, 7, 9, 11, 12, 13 and 14.... That alone is more than enough for a 'typical' Panel at the local Club....

Thanks for sharing these and best regards, Neil.

Excellent series Harald. I agree with Neil that #3 should be on the merit list as well. (Love those triangles top left!) I'm rather partial to the unusual compo in #5 as well. So all good!

Thank you all for your encouraging comments - very much appreciated!

I am quite uncertain whether this type of photography can count as (serious) architectural photography - but it's always fun to have a tele lens in a city like Boston and find some views off the beaten track.
