The Princess Theatre - Rooftop


  1. So many beautiful details Joe, plus a golden lion, impressive!!

  2. Bonita imágen, bien encuadrada.


  3. Great details Joe! Wonderful shot.

  4. I really like the way you've composed this one Joe. Now, if I was to be really picky, I'd be tempted to clone out that sliver on the right hand side. Easy peasy for a man of your Gimp skills:-) Hope you don't mind the comment, but lovely job, really.

  5. Great capture. You have a real eye for making the everyday observed look different. Really clear shot. Love it!

  6. Wow! I love the cropping, the contrasts, the textures, the abundance of detail -- great shot!


  7. Such fine detailed work and captured beautifully here! Great eye for the unusual, Joe.
    Cheers from Montreal.

  8. Alan said 'sliver' not 'silver'. I wondered if the Old Dart had got to him for a moment!

    I love this partial shot, Joe. There is something about a part that teases the imagination. Are those two sets of rods to ward of pigeons do you reckon? Why two rows?

  9. No, I meant "sliver". The blue bit poking in on the right:-) What's Old Dart?

  10. Perth - Thanks so much for you kind words.
    Jesus - Appreciate your encouragement.
    Luis - Your a good supporter.
    Birdman - Thanks.
    Alan - Appreciate your advice. You've set me a challenge. Will post a modified version once I figure out the "clone" tool.
    Rae - Thanks.. different .. is good.
    Genie - Must have had a steady hand the day I took this shot. It reminded me of Paris.
    Montreal - unusual is good too.
    Julie - Not sure .. but there are no pigeons in sight.

  11. Yep, got the blue bit poking in. Just takes me time ...

    Old Dart? mmm ... don't know, but shall say what I think PRIOR to googling. It means the UK, but why. My guess is Dartmoor, and maybe many early settlers came via that fine establishment.

    Hah! Close but no cigar! It is dialect for 'old dirt' ... possibly Irish, so you shoulda known. Old Dart meaning the dirt from whence one came originally. In Australian usage, it specifically refers to England.
