*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ HELLO TL MEMBERS *~*~*~*~*~*~*~

*#*#*#*#* I CELEBRATE MY DOUBLE 14 TODAY ;) *#*#*#*#*


Well it was a fine sunny evening when our ship was berthed at Hamburg Port for the first time. I was quite happy and had a feeling that I cannot express. After I was off duty I got the chance to go on a shore leave and visit Hamburg City. That day I decided not to take any taxi or bus but to walk around and try to find out what is in Hamburg, through a map.
I took this shot after I passed through the tunnel and after taking the DHL shot which I presented for the new year. I stood at a corner and liked the building and the reflection from it, my position can be seen in the map. The reflection is of a church named St. Michel.
Well that day I had a great walk around for almost 6 hours.

Thanks for viewing and sharing your helpful ideas. I wish you all a happy springs ahead!

Hi Ali,

The church is well captured in the reflection from the modern looking building. A nice wide-angle view that is sharp and has excellent depth. The blue tones are wonderful as well. Am I misreading your last statement, or are you going away?

Best regards,

Hi Ali,

Great play between light and shadows, and the mirror reflection of the building (church?) on the facade of the modern glass building, gives a great comparison of the development in architecture with time!

Very well seen with perfect sharpness and from a well chosen POV, make this an eyecatching composition. Good job!

best wishes,

Ciao Ali,

Pespective is perfect, you chose a very well
angle with The Edge of the architecture.
Sharpness and clarity are wonderful.
These picture is nice of color and of excellent presentation.

Have a nice day,

Hello my dear friend Ali!

I did not know that you had been posting; it looks like I've missed a few. I'll go catch up now.

It looks like you good use out of the taxi. :) This is a great POV Ali! I'm impressed. I also like the reflection of the other building in the glass. Excellent!

I guess Mushtaq told you that I said to come see my truck. :))))

Take care, my friend!
