This building looks a little out of place in Szczecin as it bears some traces of the architecture typical of our southern areas. Posted it in 2009 in colour but now realised that it is better in sepia. SAM & SAAB

Hope that the colours aren't faded away, SAM, lol.
Honesty requires me to say that I can't remember the coloured version, but this is a very good photograph taken with an appropriate angle.

Regards, Cornelius.

Sepia is ideal for this very intricate structure and the angle is spot-on perfect.

The sepia was a good choice for this one. It shows off the details so much better and this old house has a lot of it to show off.

I love the architectural style and details in the building. A nice angle in the photo. It appears to be a new but built in the old style given the patina of the wood.

Color is wonderful, details perfect, best part for me is the reflection in the windows... makes it stand apart from similar photos.
