Winch: "A mechanical device used to pull in (wind up) or let out (wind out) or otherwise adjust the tension of a rope or cable. In its simplest form, it consists of a spool (winch drum) and attached hand crank."
Well, I think this is the simplest form! Found in Alesund, Norway. I had hoped to get a brochure picture of these buildings' reflections, but the conditions weren't perfect enough and I only had one chance.
V2 is an alternative viewpoint.
V3 shows the winch in context.
V4 is an aerial view of Alesund.

Thanks for having a look,
Pamela.

THIS is a great series of reportage, etc. #1 is the best but it has a great supporting cast!
Also, #1 uses selective focus and shows a sense of depth VERY SKILLFULLY!

This set exemplifies the virtues of the multiple upload facility, exploring a subject, building up the 'bigger picture'. Very nicely done. I favour V1 for the strength of the composition. Not an easy subject but you've given so much here.

Your sensitivity for critical shot selection has worked a treat here, #1 being the outstanding image for me; the supporting cast is very strong, with #2 and #3 to give scale and perspective - and of course #4 for general context. The colours are superb under that cool northern light.

All four are stunning captures, but I prefer V4 because, with the man standing next to it, you can see the size of that wonderful winch.
Amazing colours, detail, DoF & composition in all of them.

If only I can get back there again now to try to get a shot as good as this.
