The square and town hall

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 17 October 2013 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Looking across the square in Delft toward the wonderful looking town hall that seemed to be very busy with weddings while we were there

Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

Plenty of good local detail in this shot and that great sense of "cafe culture".

I like how the textures of the bricks lead the eye toward the buildings and people.

This is wonderful, Doug - the light and the angle really display the stone pavement so well. I love the structure/detail aspect that your image lends here ...This is a shot that makes one glad to be alive!!!

i like the clever pov and perspective, and the inclusion of the bike in the right-hand corner! the hdr-like processing is an additional bonus !!!

Elaine Hancock from Rockville, United States

Beautiful image! I would love to sit there and take it all in. There are so many places here that the town square no longer exists and now planners are trying to incorporate that into new communites. I love the architecture of the town hall.

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

Your inclusion of the bicycle and the man on the left form perfect leads into the image. The bricks take over and lead us the rest of the way. I'm guessing the activity on the right is the "cafe culture" Curly mentioned.
You did a super job on this image, taken at a difficult time of day!
