Hmmmm .....?

By GillyB    
One of the most famous coffee houses in Vienna, the Cafe Central was the haunt of writers who whiled away the day drinking coffee and discussing all things literary.

Today it is a place to visit for the fabulous cakes, immaculately turned out waiters and of course the viennese coffee always served with a small glass of water.

Thanks as always for your time.

Hi Gill,

I love the composition of this shot. The decision to centralise the couple really does enhance the scale and height of the room. Excellent image well toned and very well presented..

Thank you Smile not been around much this week as we have had half the hot water system replaced as well as 12 bedroom windows (that is 12 windows not 12 bedrooms) and the house looks like a bomb site. Off to London tomorrow for a couple of days and I expect it will still be a bomb site when we get back ........ catch up at the weekend!

The narrative sets the scene beautifully for this image Gilly, the toning also suits the image very well, and a very good composition
23 Jul 2008 3:23PM
I do like the b&w rendition of this Gilly. Very well captured.
So many cakes and Tortens to choose from the mind the waistline groans lol.
A lovely composition.
