Yes they sure are. Out with the old, in with the new.
Albert Perpinyŕ: I'm not sure I understand. You don't mean the old should disappear , do you?
What an interesting contrast in styles Albert
Albert Perpinyŕ: Thanks Chris. Contrast is what allows you perspective to value things.
The old is valuable because the new makes it valuable. If everything is the same it's hard to see how worthy it is.
Sometimes the old and the new can blend together well, other times they don't. This picture makes them blend quite well, and I like the way you have made the roof angles compliment each other.
Albert Perpinyŕ: You're very kind , Sheila. I have to admit that I didn't do it on purpose. Curiosly enough, I paid attention to the straight lines of the window area in the new house and those of the church tower but Yo'e totally right I like the angles now I look at them again.
It is the same everywhere Albert. This looks more acceptable than many.
Albert Perpinyŕ: In this town they've been acceptably respectful and the new buildings are not too intrusive.

Is it just my eyes, or are the church and tiled roofs in b/w? I like the strong contrast between old and new.

Albert Perpinyŕ: No it isn't your eyes it's photoshop. The church and tiled roofs are in b/w to strengthen the contrast. In fact if you look at the previous post yo will see the actual colour of the church building
Cool. I like the colour of the foreground against the black and white /grey stone.
Albert Perpinyŕ: I'm glad you like it, Iain. I was trying the emphasise the contrast between what was old and what was new.

Interesting structure. Lovely shades of peach and grey.
Albert Perpinyŕ: It's two differents buildings. A private house and a church behind at a higher level.
