Een prachtige sfeer foto. Het lijkt wel of Brussel hier terug gaat naar 1967 of nog eerder, maar in de meeste grote steden kan je nog steeds van die plekjes vinden waar de tijd heeft stilgestaan.
Groet Rob

Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Greef sounds a little too close to 'grief' in English so I am not sure I would take my car there for a tune up or servicing. The decorative iron grill bars at left are an improvement on the usual Spartan designs. Tfs.

Dobar dan.
Sta je bilo sa vasom fotografijom Bay of Mont Saint Michel.
Interesantan pogled i trenutak ...
Lepo pokazana stara graza, dobar kontarst i sotrina, lepo uhvacen trenutak.
Lepa stara arhitektura i metalna vrata sa lepim detaljima.
Dobar tekst o koriscenoj tehnici i elementima snimka.
Zelim vam lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje.

Good day.
What was with your photo Bay of Mont Saint Michel?
An interesting look and a moment ...
Beautifully displayed old garage, good contour and sharpness, a nice moment.
Beautiful old architecture and metal doors with nice details.
Good text about the used technique and the elements of the image.
I wish you a beautiful and successful day, all the best.

Hello Eric,
An artistic photo of a kind that is not so often seen on TE. I like the almost monochrome view of a place which must have looked the same for a long time.

Dag Eric,

Eerlijk ik meen mij deze naam te herinneren boven de poort.
Ik heb namelijk wel 23 jaar veel in Brussel rond gelopen, en zeker de Marollenwijk waar het begin van de jaren 80 echt gezellig was.
Het is een goede samenstelling, alleen ontbreekt iemand in de opening van de poort.
De twee deuren naast de poort zijn rijkelijk versierd.
Goed foto werk. Bedankt.

Groeten uit Oost-Vlaanderen,

Hi Eric
A lovely example of what can be achieved with the simplest of items. This has a real olde-worlde feel written all over it with your appropriate treatment to sepia tone with good tonal which adds to the feel of nostalgia and this also reminds me of an old postcard.

This is packed with sufficient detail with strong lines and shapes whereas the workshop's name and grittiness are too prominent as the focal point which sit very well on the eye. This gives more a sense of the passage of time to me when all the contributing elements helps to make this shot. Vvery nicely put together. Definitely coool! Congrats
Best wishes

You have posted a photo in old style, it matches with the old garage, very well observed
regards Ryszard

Hi Eric
great to see photos like this on TE, we need more of them. Nice to have a new TE member like yourself.

I really think the post processing on this one has turned out very well, its atmospheric, mysterious, and raises alot of questions. wonderful combination of light and dark areas. love the subject material as well. cheers

Hallo Eric,
Wat een mooie, sfeervolle foto, die bovendien wat mysterieus aandoet door de waas die voor en binnen in de garage hangt. De compositie is erg goed, dankzij de twee deuren aan de linkerkant. Ze voorkomen bovendien dat de foto statisch wordt. Mooi fotowerk.

Hello Eric,
have you really made this picture this year? It looks as if you found it in an old album. Wonderful post procession. I like it very much.
As to your deleted picture. There are many posts here with only the copied Wikipedia note and nothing happens and suddenly other picture is deleted. I understand that it should be reference to Wiki, but why to delete the picture? It would be enough to write the message - "please, write something from yourself and give the reference". It can be added any time.

Have a nice day

Bonjour Eric
Cela ressemble a une photo ancienne ,bien qu'elle date de maintenant, l'atmosphère tout comme le peu de couleurs donne cet aspect vieux, superbe image
Belle journée

Managed to go back in time with this composition, Eric, the shaded-light and sepia tones gave it a beautiful ancient "look".
Nice applied an artistic mood.
Have a nice weekend,

  • Great

another image with an special artistic touch, we almost think it is a black and white compo, but we can see red here too. the fog ion the door of the garage added something of mood and mystery.

take care
