Saint-Sauveur Again

This is a series of pics from my birthday weekend in June from Bruges, Belgium.

Most of you know by now that architecture of almost any kind is one of my weaknesses!
Here's yesterday's
Cathedral of Saint-Sauveur as seen from the 12x optical zoom from my camera while standing on terra firma.  This time it's in color.
Louis made a comment yesterday about "towers on the tower."  Exactly!
And, of course, a weather vane!

You seem to have got the lighting well under control...the building is luminous. Excellent perspective. Nice detail.
This is a wonderful series, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Glad you're liking it, Ray. Thanks a million.
That is a stunning build Ginnie. Nice and sharply captured/
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Chris.
Amazing Shot Ginnie, Love everything about it! Well done Girl !
Ginnie Hart: Aw shucks, Ade. smile
Good detail coming out on the brickwork, Ginnie and lovely rich colours.

Your picturing of buildings remains excellent. And the close-up of the tower is everything that yesterday's picture promised it to be. Lovely breaking clouds as well.

Those little towers seems to be solid - like they are of no use. Have you climbed this one as well?
Ginnie Hart: You're so kind, Louis. Thank you.

No, I did not climb this one. I never even got as far as to see if it was open!
The detail on this tower is amazing Ginnie and liking the colour too.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Bernie.
The effect that you have created here, is peculiar. Perspective nonencounter volume nor, and I like. It is as if the image it "you had flattened". Very interesting in fact. smile
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Jose! smile

Wowie wow! Special building and shot, good good good job. That little banner of gold on the weathervane is glowing!
Ginnie Hart: You just gave me a big smile, Ruth, with your "wowie wow." I'll have to remember that one. smile Thank you.
Powerfully composed Giinie. Very imposing structure.
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Busola!
A real clump of brick! Either dating back to the early Middle Ages or the late nineteenth century.
Ginnie Hart: Definitely the Middle Ages, Wim. Construction started in 1280 and ended in 1350. Thanks for the comment.

another one thats superbly composed...ur becoming quite a pro at these...
Ginnie Hart: That means a lot coming from you, Sam. Thank you kindly!
Very nice treatment here Ginnie , I really like the tones and texture on this building. Well done.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Flo.
Nice! Up until the end of May, I lived in a house that is a little like a much smaller version of this, complete with tower on the tower, and 2 weather vanes! The house was called, unsurprisingly, 'The Towers'. I lived in the basement, which my landlord tells me used to be the kitchens of the property when the lord of the Manor still lived there, before it all got converted into flats for the sake of commercial gain. Was really sad when I had to move out, as I love this sort of architecture myself! Really nice capture Gin! Love it!
Ginnie Hart: It sounds like you and I are both lovers of architecture, Fehinti!! Thanks for your story. smile

Iv'e come late to the party on this one! But will add my agreement on the detail and that I like the symmetry of the shot, helped by your choice of a square format. Mike
Ginnie Hart: The square format really helps to fill the screen, doesn't it, Mike! smile Thanks.
Lovely crisp image Ginnie. Suits the square format too. This must have been a bricklayers nightmare to build. David.
Ginnie Hart: I can't imagine being a brick layer at all, let alone back in the Middle Ages! Thanks, David.

Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Mal! smile
Just love the colour of this building, and the image is so sharp. Fabulous! (:o)
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Roz. Thanks.
lovely viewpoint
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Yeni.
Wow! Ginnie..this one feels like you could reach out and touch it. Love the colors and the architecture. You are doing amazing with this multiplying thing!
Ginnie Hart: HA! I'll mark you down as one of my "cheap HDR" fans, DD. grin Thanks a million.

What a building!! looks very strong archtechture, like the view that you have done granny Gin smile
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Dudee. Thanks. smile
Very strange architecture isn't it ? It seems coming right from a fantastic (or fantasy) moovie !!
Ginnie Hart: You have a good point there, Zeb! Thanks.
Very, very nice!
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, PB. Thanks.
Interesting building and well captured.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Helen.

Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Dotun. Thanks.
It seems that we share the same weakness for buildings. I luv this.
Ginnie Hart: I LOVE the "weakness," Helen. Thanks. smile
