The Pitcher and Piano on Newcastle's Quayside facing the River Tyne. Ideal on a warm and sunny afternoon, walk over from Gateshead and watch the river traffic flowing past.
Three shot HDR in Photomatix.

There's always a good place to sit,watch around and drink a beer between taking two or three pictures on the bank ......A pleasant place and a sweet sunday's shot,Curly ...

@STEED: Odd, but this place is never quite so pleasant on a dull rainy day :-)

Jypyä Pop from Turku, Finland

Nice looking place. Suitable for sunbathing... and...

@Jypyä Pop: ........getting drunk?

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

Cannot see that flowerpot being stolen any time soon !

15 May 2017 6:13am

@Ronnie 2¢: It is a bit large for the average loft installation :-)

Marjolein from Netherlands

Indeed a nice place to stay

15 May 2017 6:28am

@Marjolein: Just the right materials and textures for an HDR picture Lol.

Martine Libouton from Bousval, Belgium

Une belle scène de vie !

15 May 2017 8:18am

@Martine Libouton: Not quite as lively as it sometimes is.

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

Beautiful street scene, well composed and lot of details.

15 May 2017 9:42am

@Evelyne Dubos: It's missing something...........probably a screaming Ford GT40!

Hiro from Kyoto, Japan

15 May 2017 9:56am

@Hiro: Thank you Hiro.

Devi from Chennai, India

Shaun from Thorton, United States

Pitcher&Piano. What a great name. This looks like a nice place to sit outside, watching the river. Great to see Newcastle in the premier league again.

15 May 2017 12:32pm

@Shaun: OMG.......you really know how to wind a bloke up!! Some of us will be glad to see them relegated again, just so we can play a real derby match.

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

LOve the name of this place. You have captured the welcoming atmosphere.

15 May 2017 1:13pm

@Ruthiebear: The name........never really excited me to be honest, perhaps it conjures up images of very old pubs with large flagons of beer and an old timer tinkling the ivories.

Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

You are an expert photographer. Your HDRs are perfect ...

15 May 2017 5:16pm

@Adela Fonts: Really? Well I'm glad they go down well in Barcelona :-)

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Definitely a great place to enjoy the views along the river!! I love the inclusion of the louvres used on the second level to block out the intense sunlight. I would imagine it's prime seating during lunch and dinner.

15 May 2017 10:21pm

@Steven: Probably (because of its position) it will be used at breakfast and lunch, by afternoon the sun will have moved further west).

Elaine Hancock from Olney, United States

It looks like a great place to sit and enjoy the view. I like the reflections.

15 May 2017 11:50pm

@Elaine Hancock: yes, metal and glass, great HDR elements!

Nicou from Sion, Switzerland

Quel graphsime de sores et fenêtre quel rendu brillant et moderne sueprbe.

16 May 2017 4:05am

@Nicou: Merci Nicou, comme je l'ai dit à Elaine, le métal et le verre sont deux excellents éléments pour travailler en HDR.
