I'll be curious to see how you feel about it when it's been around a while.

I think I prefer the old side but I have to say, this photo is just outstanding. It looks like a painting. For some reason it makes me think of the painter Magritte.

I really like seeing the contrasts between the old and new here.

I love this photo as a composition...it would be good on a wall. It's stark, yet colorful, and raises all kinds of questions in the mind. Excellent work, VP!

As old and new go, I've seen worse...

I like the image, and I think both buildings goes well together.

They mix well together.

Nicely composed, VP. Because my tastes are quite traditional, I like the older building and the older lamp posts, but the newer building seems like it was well designed. However, the modern lamps seem too severe for my tastes.

Bel contrasto! Ciao, Arianna

Nicely composed image VP, for me it's the old that wins here.
