Default a favourite place

I've come here many times as it is a great place to relax.

Taken last winter when I rented the 5d Mark II to try out. Great camera for sure.

5d Mark II, 70 - 200mm Non IS, ISO 200, 1/8000, 2.8

I'm nostalgia struct with this image as if taken by a fellow photographer of Hippolyte Bayard or Talbot rivalling the daguerreotype!! Tasteful composition also reminds me the artistic merits of these old masters...

As always my friend, your comments are an education and appreciated. How is it that you became aware of these "old" masters and photo styles?

Oh, humbled by your kind remark. Art history being my hobby horse, I read, too, from time...to time : )

spy,

Another expressive fotograph by you, reminding me of lithographs by some expressionist. Don't remember the name though

Some people can dwell in this, others must at least try to reach the surface

the ethereal feel of this one is great. the composition with the angling stream leading to the bridge plus the exposure and processing work well.
