Nice patterns and light and all from the outside of a pub window. Good eye.

Like this one Eric !! What is causing the sort of circular amber shadow inside? I have not puzzled it out.

Very well spotted and captured.

Lovely colours Eric. Is this a pub just a stones throw from Queen's Square ?

I hope you didn't stay "Outside " the pub for long....

Many thanks for the positive feedback. Grin

Hi, Len. The shadow on the window is cast from buildings across the road. The amber is light from inside. You can see why the Victorian poor loved these places.

It's right next to the Adelphi hotel, Andy.

Eric this is quite nice. I love the reflection and colors. The image is in need of a slight rotation clockwise. I could see myself visiting the pub for a brew

Thanks, I did try to get this perfectly straight, but because I was below and a little off centre when I took the shot (to get the best reflections in the glass I had to take the shot a little off-centre instead of square on) I found that I had to settle for either a straight top or a straight bottom, but I couldn't have both. I went for the straight top, as seen here (try the cut glass pattern against the browser window edge and scroll down). A straight bottom of frame makes the top of the cut glass pattern lean. It's just one of those awkward ones, I'm afraid. I thought a slight slant on the bottom would be the least noticable. Smile

Hi Doug,

I like this for the definition, the patterns and the light. What it's all about I suppose! And thanks for the mini-lesson in Ph/shop, which you left in JPW's portfolio. (Ref. Minster Tower fom the inside) Now I can straighten horizons before I print, thus avoiding mounting my prints on a slant!
Cheers again.

Many thanks for your comments. I can't really take credit for the photoshop tip you mention. It was another ephotoziner, Leo, who left it as advice on another picture, I simply passed it on. Grin

Hi Eric,

Well, wherever the tip came from, thanks for passing it on. It will be extremely useful. My Digicam does give me slanted horizons and it isn't always me!

Cheers

Thanks, Saskia. Yes, this is one of the few remaining genuine Victorian windows left in the pub. Most of the rest have been replaced over the years with modern etched glass, which mimics the original Victorian pattern. This is actual cut glass, which is much more impressive and catches the light much better. The bay window design demands that the pane's surface bows out slightly, like the outside of an upright cylinder...another reason I couldn't quite get both top and bottom all completely straight in the frame. Glad you commented.
