Hello Craig,
It almost breaks my heart to hear that you didn't care more for MOMA. ;-) It ranks among the top 5 or top 10 of all museums I have visited. But I agree that taking photos of just art is boring, or even pointless, unless you capture some kind of interaction with visitors, just like you capture the interaction between people and architecture and reflecting glass. I understand why you basically prefer the WS. I am also totally fascinated by such views from straight above, but this one is good enough to catch my attention.
Thanks for your long and thoughtful comments on my picture from the slums.
Cheers,
Gert

Hello Mesut,
This looks like it could have been taken in the 19th century. What a fantastic document of life in Istanbul 60 years ago. Did you realize when you were 15 years old that this could become such a treasure? The fact that the quality is not what would be demanded of modern photos is of no importance at all.
Kind regards,
Gert

Hello Philippe,
I don't know exactly what everything here is used for, but I see six red cranes in a row and two grey towers of some kind and I note that they go well together and create an interesting image. They are well held together by the low green building. It's a surprisingly colourful picture from a port area and the dark lines across the water seem to give the photo a nice rhythm. It's interesting to see such high mountains just by the city.
Kind regards,
Gert

Hello Christiane,
You captured a fine atmosphere in the blue hour. The building is very nicely illuminated and the light is well reflected in the cobbled stones. The mingling people are an important part of the composition.
Kind regards,
Gert

Hello,
Old factory chimneys are often quite beautiful architecturally, and this is one of those. It is also nicely reflected in the water. The photo has fine colours and clarity.
Regards,
Gert

Hello Ryszard,
The castle is nice and the left part of it seems to have a kind of "flatiron" design. I like the green surroundings. Fine light and a good exposure.
Kind regards,
Gert

Hello Malgo,
Thanks for the reference to my old photo. This may be the same place but a totally different picture (including much better light and colours and sharpness). The many very different elements make it an attractive view. The two persons in red next to the sign and the strong blue tones of the sea and the sky are very eye-catching.
Kind regards,
Gert

Hello Daniel,
The spiral towers probably make this cathedral unique. I can't recall anything similar. It's an interesting view from straight below. Colours and clarity of the details are superb.
Regards,
Gert

Hello Kari,
The trains look very old-fashioned and the sepia conversion makes the photo look like it could have been taken soon after the route was electrified. There is nothing obviously modern seen here. Nicely done.
Best wishes,
Gert

Hello Jorge,
This doesn't have the beautiful colours of some other photos from your home area, but the dark and hazy tones are quite attractive. The hills create a fine pattern. It's a well exposed photo in a difficult light.
Kind regards,
Gert
