Very nices colors! J'adore le contraste entre la nature et l'urbain. Quel beau poster cela ferait! Are you familiar with french?

@Martine Lapointe: I can read basic French, understand about 25% verbally and speak very little. :-) I'm linguistically challenged which is why I probably gravitate toward photography. :-)

Jean-Frédéric from Québec, Canada

That's the second time that Martine come here just before me and says almost exactly what I am thinking about the picture!

It looks like a music video set! A very high budget one. But I'm probably thinking of Taiwanese ones.

Brilliant coloring

Scary good! The bricks are almost burning through the plaster, and so much balance in the composition.
