Default Ten Factory Windows

For The Barbarian. The Säve River runs 20 meters to the right. Trees brim(?) the river. The setting sun's rays reflect the trees in the water of River Säve running parallell to the building

I have a dream to make a photo book with brick buildings like this, in various light conditions

Btw I met a young couple the other day. They said they were "living the nineteenth century". They even looked like figures from Dickens. Sometimes you meet real people

The reflections on the windows really make this composition work.

I don't think you can go very wrong photographing old buildings. They have a great deal more style than some of the modern buildings. The reflections in the windows add a nice contrast against the darker bricks of the wall. It almost looks like the trees are behind the windows, as if the wall was the only part of the building standing.

Regards

I really like your windows. It's very characteristic for you to put so much in those reflections.

Thanks for the show.

Great shot. As others have said, the window reflections really bring this piece alive.

+1 for the tree reflections. Also like how the arches above the second floor windows seem to be in different light than those on the first.
