Liverpool pub window.
Nice patterns and light and all from the outside of a pub window. Good eye.
You have an eye for the unusual Eric, I like the warm colour and patterns, nice one.
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....
Gets my 'click'
Great colours, nice one Eric, sorry if I'm slurring my words!
Many thanks for the positive feedback.
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.
Love this Eric, wonderful warm colours and great lighting, you've certainly got a great eye!
Thanks, Mary and Amy.
Another tick for your 'eye' Eric.
Nice one Eric, well spotted ...beautiful colouring, delightful patterning. Regards Mark
Many thanks, Mark.
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.
Eric - I know a bit about pubs (professionally that is - it's the day job) -is this the Philharmonic? as a wild guess. - steve
Hiya Steve. It's The Vines in Lime Street. Thanks for the interest. Any chance of free samples, by the way?
Wonderful detail & colours Eric & nice try re the free samples !
Thanks for the explanations and thoughts Eric. It's nice to know we only have to ask !!!
No problem, Len. As long as I know, or can find out, I'll tell ya!
Eric - Afraid I work on the retail side not the production side!! nice try though - steve
Instantly recognisable Eric. Your images can make me feel quite nostalgic at times!Looks sharp,good light too.
Many thanks for your comment, Roy.
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!
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.
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!
Glad to help. Cheers.
Wonderful athmosphere in this picture. I like the elegance of the design and the contrast between warm and cold light.
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.
The light through the glass looks so warm and welcoming.
Thanks Sandra, just the reason I decided to take it. Good to hear from you.
