Grote Markt

By skeletor
This shot was taken a couple of weeks ago in an alley way leading to the Grote Markt (Grand Place) in Brussels, where you can find the incredibly ornate gothic style Town Hall, which is certainly one of the most impressive town halls I've seen.

Thanks for your comments. I should just point out that the whole building is a lot larger and impressive, and that I've only included the spire in the shot.

As has been said before, great idea for framing, and I like the mixed lighting colours - it gives a pretty ghostly feeling to the Gothic.

Great shot. A difficult building to get right as it's so tall! Love Brussells - this makes me want to go back Smile
