    Re: DP Salon Competition #64 - Historic Architecture

    Um - weird question... do ships count as 'architecture'? No? Probably not. Never mind. I'll go away and leave you all in peace now...

        haha, very good...... Peronally I would say it does, I am thinking more of the large old wooden jobs, but here is one defination (courtesy of Dictionary.com)

        the profession of designing buildings, open areas, communities, and other artificial constructions and environments, usually with some regard to aesthetic effect. Architecture often includes design or selection of furnishings and decorations, supervision of construction work, and the examination, restoration, or remodeling of existing buildings.

        So, I guess it is over to the person running the salon to make the decision

          People who design ships are known as naval architects and [ame]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naval_architecture[/ame] is an accepted discipline so I reckon its in.

                    As yours and Phil's comments follow my entry, I am assuming that you are talking about The Treasury.

                    It was a very memorable day - about a one and a half mile walk on a stoney path to the Treasury, but en route, there were many magnificent sites.

                    On arriving at the Treasury, there were people and camels everywhere and then we moved on to the Amphitheatre, the crowd moved further on, but we had had enough walking and so on our return we past the Treasury again and it was this time I was able to get a better shot without the crowd in front of it. I also had time to put on my wide angle converter for my Canon G3, as I couldn't get the whole building in without it.

                    I did straighten the verticals Horatio and cropped a bit of rock from the right hand side. As I am not used to using the WA lens, I am not sure whether or not this barrelled the corners and horizontal lines at the base, or whether they were like that. I am sure you or Phil will know.

                    Glad you like it.

                      Brill, thank you. In that case, here's my entry:



                      This is the wreck of the 1920s Danish schooner, the Hans Egede. The photo was taken last week.

                      Th wreck is quite large - about 40ft long, I'd estimate. It's been laying in the mud near Cliffe in Kent, since the 1950s, when it grounded. What fascinates me is that although it's easily accessible, it doesn't look to have been touched by humans for the past 50 or 60 years.

                      I first saw the vessel on Google Earth (see this page ), and I was determined to visit it! The area is fascinating, there are abandoned forts and other military relics nearby too.

                              One of the oldest example of architecture, remaining in marvelous conditions, the egyptian piramids.
                              What I like most of this picture is that no people was around at the moment of the click Only a few birds on the left This way it looks more anthique.
