The Clogged Wharf

Beautification of the Lower Warf at Rhine River by expansion of the party zone. The river becomes staffage of a fake North Sea panorama.

interessante perspektive entlang des geschäftigen hafens, schöne farbenvielfalt auf den booten, und ein attraktiver dunst in der luft, das alles weicher erscheinen lässt ...

@franz: Wäre da nur nicht der (vor allem im Sommer) penetrante Fischgeruch und das Dauergedudel aus den Lautsprechern dieser Möchtegernsylt-Restaurants...

Lots of nice color here. But it looks like a lot of clutter added along what appears to be a beautiful boardwalk area. I love the line of round lights along the boardwalk, which adds nice depth.

@Steven: 'Clutter' is the word here. These restaurants along the river are spreading like the bubonic plague.

you've captured that cramped feel!

Brilliant perspective you have here ! I do get the cramped up feel and so many different types of architecture, all interesting to look at though and I love the atmospheric perspective at play here too!

@Abena: Thank you so much!!

This would look real pleasant without the very tall modern buildings at the back! I like the angle and the perspective rounding the street lamps.

@Japanalia: This tower in the background is one of the modern architecural landmarks of Düsseldorf, built in a time when industry meant everything. Long ago, perhaps not in years, but in ideologies.
