Both the colours and the composition are super. Does this mean your Nikon is OK, Dulcie? I do hope so!

@Richard: This was one of five shots I made before my Nikon quit. :-( However, the good news is that I stopped by the camera store on my way home from the day's outing and, after a little fiddling, the camera was suddenly "fixed." :-) Thank you for asking, Richard.

Great composition, the building looks as if it has a wall of living garden

The winter can discover aspects of the city was impossible to see and mingle nature to the city... I like!

Like this POV..the building looks as if it has to survive in the jungle with all that green on it!

Great shot! Love the way the shape of the building is softened by the fine pattern of small tree branches.

Buildings and trees that's the right combination! Great processing:-)

Why are those trees there? Are they to defend us from the giant impersonal building? Or are we imprisoned and unable to reach what is on the other side?

Marcie from United States

Hardly looks like winter to me! What a wonderful winter scene!

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

This is so wonderfully seen! I love the texture of the tree over the building, pattern in pattern, and the tones. It almost looks like NY to me. Great bare branched winter shot.
