[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A picture taken from the four towers of Cathedral St-Salvators Bruges Belgium.
St. Saviour's Cathedral : Bruges' oldest parish church (12th-15th century). Worth seeing are the gobelins, mausoleums in the choir, roodloft with organ (1619-1717), choir stalls and numerous fine paintings.
Cathedral Museum : paintings by a.o. Dirk Bouts and Hugo van der Goes, brass tomb plates and reliquaries.

I have cropped to a better composition, but the colours are real

I hope jou like it.

Très belle composition de toitures. L'angle de prise de vue est très bien choisi. Merveilleuse architecture bien mise en valeur.
Très bien fait John.
Very beautiful composition of roofs. L'angle of catch of sight is very quite selected. Marvellous architecture development well. Very well done John.

Alle torens bij elkaar.
Hoe geweldig scherp, deze foto !
Mooi John !
(Niet voor TrekEarth?....)

Waarom zou die niet voor TE te gebruiken zijn?
Heel mooie foto trouwens. Bijzonder goed geslaagde compositie.

Great detail photo John.

Well done

I also think you could have posted this on TE, but I'm equally happy to see it here, John. A very nice repetition you captured here, with the four spires (and the roof on the right) reaching up towards the sky. The textural detail on the buildings is superb, maybe just a little less sharpness would also be enough. Very good shot.

Great composition and angle you spotted and captured here - The perspective just great and you presented this fine place nicely - thanks for sharing John.

What a good idea, four so different spires in one shot. Maybe you could have cropped a bit of the facade on the right - it disturbs a little bit the main subject of your photo. Nice light also.

Great composition ! Not overloaded ! Well done !

It's interesting to see so many constructions agglomerated like that. It shows very well how old buildings of some cities are built on a very small surface. Beautiful colors and details and very good framing to express the interaction of these buildings. Nice one, John.

Hi John

Nice repetition of all the geometric triangular shapes, with superb sharpness & the splash of red contrasting against the blue sky. Tfs!

Hello John,
Nice idea and well executed!
I notice the image soon will be three years old, but definition and colours are still fine...
Well framed shot!
