The fountains on the Town Hall square

The fountains on the Town Hall square

Les fontaines de l'Hôtel de Ville.

I waited for the silhouette to pass between the buildings to try give some scale to the overall scene.

J'ai attendu que la silhouette passe entre les deux immeubles pour essayer de donner une certaine dimension à cette scène.

An other very good picture of yours the heavy and static buildings in yuxtaposition of the capricious forms from the water and the sky all of it elevated by this counterlight, and ofcours not the silouette in the center gives it a good point.

Your patience has paid off with this shot, and does indeed give a scale reference to the fountains. I love how the man is in dead center of the photo.

Bonne idée d'avoir attendu le passage du bonhomme. Ce que j'aime le plus ici, ce sont les contrastes. Presque de l'ombre chinoise.

superbe photo.Je n'ai pas reconnu le havre tout de suite.Je vois que tu fais de plus en plus de noir et blanc et que tu as toujours autant d'imagination et de rêves.Nous attendons la suite. A+

Hi Jim..A terrific image. Not only have you captured a great composition, a wonderful sky and those beautiful fountains - you've also got the guy heading across at the exact moment. Wonderful work my friend.. Congrats and best wishes Rob

That SKY! The contrast of the sky and the fountain spray really make this one work! Love the composition as well!
