Great combination of views, VP. Gives a clear sense of what's being done and how.

I know you were critical of this in your previous post, but I must differ. This looks like it will be a lovely addition to the area.

It's coming alone nicely and I like it a lot! Very fine photo too - great symmetry and contrast (square or rectangular windows vs. the arches below).

Looks nice.

I like the close up image, where I can see the work they are doing.
