This row of huge columms is part of a well...huge building ( do not remember which one unfortunately ... what i do remember..it was taken near and west of the railway station on busy Mannerheimintie in wonderful Helsinki ) poosibly the Parliament House or the one next and on the north side of it the also very impressive Kansallis Museum. Anyway i found this photo searching my files for one that would fit this Friday's theme. I like the repetitive pattern and perspective ,hope you like it, i do !

This is a nice and calssic entry to teh theme Carol. The columns look heavy both in actual wight as well a in symbolism. A building of great importnace and power...

Carol: It is truly an excellent photo, the POV is great but also the detail of the stone on the first columns, and how this degrades gradually.

Beautiful shot Carol, simple and suggestive, with a very well chosen point of view and surprisingly little distortion (did you correct any?). Awesome composition and well-chosen aperture, I'm impressed.

Hej Carol,

Great image. Lovely perspective and depth. I love the gritty texture in the columns. Well presented and a good strong image.

Well done and TFS,


excellent image, really good clean focus to this combined with a great POV, fine work indeed...tfs regards h

Wow! What a lovely perspective, Carol! I like it a lot! Your POV is perfect and you framed your shot very very well. The tone and texture is fine too. Sharp details. A work of art.

That's an excellent one, the composition of the image is excellent, the tone is special and what to write about the sharpeness. One to be proud Carol. Sincerelt I'm envious about this one.
My sincere congratulations Carol.

Hi Carol,
This is GREAT!!!
Perfect shot of this colums.
Beautiful contrast and composition; well done!
Greetings from Holland,

Bonjour carol
Sans doute l'une des plus belles façons de traiter le thème. Très jolie perspective !

Stunning repetition!!!
I love the tones here, angle at which the columns are placed.
And their finish gives a great "grain" looking effect.

hello Carol

The lines and texture of these granite marble finish columns presented a strong contrast and graphically. Nicely captured diagonal angle.

Good repitition context. Your exposure is nicely captured. Good work.

tfs, bill
