Hi John

Attractive scene of the distinctive architecture at Ghent with good warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky & yellow red stone facades of the buildings lit by the late afternoon or early morning sunlight. Tfs!

Hi John,
A splendid postcard from Ghent depicting the glorious architecture of this marvelous City. Great clarity and sharpness with perfect light management. A dramatic sky overhead contrasting with the warmth of the buidlings. Beautiful cloud formation.
Well done for this agreeable POV you have chosen.

Hi John,
Fantastic HDR image here. Not overly surreal, very lifelike. Lovely tones, well done!


Another superb architecture from the city of Ghent, dear John!

Great focus and perfect contrast against a beautiful sky.
The buildings' architecture is simply marvelous and I must better say - breathtaking!
