Hannover's Market Church

Remember the Marktkirche (Market Church) in City Center, built in the 14th century, that I posted about on December 16, 2006?  Here it is from the New Town Hall's dome, taken in March of 2005 on a bright but hazy day.  It's not the best capture in the world (notice the Green Mood!) but it gives you a feel for how another Hannover landmark stands out.  If you squint, you can see the Old Town Hall (15th century) in the lower righthand corner.

The Marktkirche is in City Center, within easy walking distance from the New Town Hall.  BTW, there's a rare oblique lift that takes you up to the New Town Hall's dome.  I had wanted to take it when I was there on January 15 but it doesn't open until it's warmer, in March.

LATER:  Louis suggested I take out the border, which I have done.  I'm gonna see if it grows on me!

wicked good photo
Ginnie Hart: Awww. Thanks a million, Susan, for stopping by and commenting. That means a lot!
I like the "key hole" character. I did something like that in Granada, Spain. Maybe I'll post it someday.
Beautiful picture, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Please do, Julischka. I'll love to see it. Thanks for your comment.
Gramma Ginn, very well framed photo. Sure there are a couple of problems, I personally would have taken your approach to framing the photo and would have been very frustrated that I could not "zero in" on the church and still frame it like this. Might I suggest a slight darkening of the shadows to possibly take care of the exposure problem? (mind you if I tilt my screen, the main body of the pic darkens up)!! Warmest wishes, Neil.-x-
Ginnie Hart: You should have seen the original, Neil! That way you'd know exactly how much darkening I did. smile Anyway, your suggestion is well-taken and thanks for your comment. Have a great weekend.

That's the first I've heard of the "Green Mood." What's that?

One of the best things about old cities and sites is windows and openings like this for looking and taking photos. There is something in us that loves a window! And you have framed the scene so well.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I guess I got into Shutterchance language there for a minute. If you run your cursor over the top right edge of the comment box below, you'll see a green smiley face before the ShMood. If you click on it, it'll tell you the 3 options we have for letting viewers know what mood we'll in as it relates to constructive criticism or not. On this one, I set it to the lowest because I already knew it wasn't technically a good pic. I didn't need anyone to tell me that!

Your comment is very kind regardless! Thank you. smile
A good, slightly different view of the city, Ginnie. Thanks for sharing, it's stuff I don't get to see otherwise, so keep it coming!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Psychodudu! It's been fun to share this city that I've grown to love.

Wasn't it nice of them to build the Town Hall with lovely windows so you could take pictures of this fabulous view?

I really like pictures like this, framed almost naturally, it makes me feel more as if I'm actually seeing it myself, and peering in different directions to see what else is out there.

I like the hint of stonework in the shadows on the left too. smile
Ginnie Hart: I think you and I would have a great time traipsing all over tarnation finding pics like this. I can just picture it! smile

Thanks for your feedback, Ellie. I purposely kept that hint of stonework in, which is probably why the rest didn't get as dark as Neil wanted it. I guess you can't always have it all!?!
Nice point of view on the town, Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Zeb. smile

It is funny how i had the idea that the new town hall is somewhere at the edge of the town or in some big park - but it is right in the town centre it seems.

About your ability to make great pictures of building i have already waxed lirically on your post of 4 feb.

When you have a dark pic (the outer sides of this pic) post it without a border - it may look positively sexy.
Ginnie Hart: HA again, Mr. Louis. You are one cool dude!!! smile

I actually thought about no border for this pic but thought it would look like a tiny tumbnail without a border. Hmm. I'll go back and try it.
