    Salut Delphine
    Very nice place...I can almost hear the silence here. The water seems shallow but very clean..we can see the bottom of the lake clearly and you have used the submerged tree trunks well as a lead-in.
    Beautiful shot!
    With Regards

    Hello Mariusz,
    I continue to discover your latest 'home' through your eyes...Indeed yes, you have found a gem here, with the muted light on the castle. You also chose a fine POV with the big FG of the pond and grasses...and framed the castle well with the two trees.
    Excellent work!
    Best Regards

    Hi Gert
    Nice series of photos depicting the event, even if we are not exactly sure what it was all about. I like the way you captured the colourful crown and the mood. The sunshine adds to the atmosphere of a jolly and relaxed summer day.
    If you took a photo of one of the leaflets I could probably tell you what they said. :-) Makes me wonder if you can understand Norwegian, Danish etc. just like the Slavs understand (more or less - sometimes less rather than more...) one another?
    Have a nice evening

    Hi Gert
    I must say - perfect timing! The man is hanging in the air, looking as if he were ready to ride his bike to the moon... ;-)
    I remember the colour run photo you posted earlier. Did I tell you it reminds me of the holi festival in India (which I've never seen but would like to)?
    I've just come back from a short break in Polska. :-)
    Best wishes

    Hi Alessandro
    I think you have certainly chosen the best POV for the main post...this is an easy 10 out of 10 in my mind.

    love the powerful and dominating round ends, they have an almost 3D like effect.

    and the lighting/colors are exactly how'd you want them to be.

    interesting story about the man in your note!
    cheers

    Hi Will
    you put a good twist on this shot...haha...pardon the pun!

    reading your note, it sounds like a wonderful place to go for a walk - but perhaps not along in the dark!
    and anytime you can include a Graveyard in there too, it can only enhance the experience.

    obviously the misty mood and atmosphere are the key elements here, and the contrast between the dark tree trunks and lighter colored areas of the scene.

    beauty!
    cheers

    Hi Jean
    this is why i enjoy TE so much...Reading your note I have certainly learned something new today.
    most other photo websited don't so such things.

    too bad the skyline and lighting were not in your favour, but really...what could you have done? I'm not sure.

    excellent post, I've enjoyed the note and the structure itself

    Hi Ney
    I know the blue sky is saturated, but who the heck cares! I would be very very happy with this photo.
    Hopefully you are aswell.

    that mountain is A+
    love the textures, the grains, the details we can see in the rock.

    its a WOW photo for me

    Hi Lars
    I think I remember each and everyone of these buildings haha

    its awesome how they all look like they're standing at attention, behind and infront of each other.
    I recognize the 2 rounded building on the right, for parking the cars :)

    super shot of the city, and I even see 2 tennis courts too!

    hard to resist looking at this shot.
    and after reading the note, I had no idea I was about to learn so much about Noodles!!

    such a heart warming scene with the smiling ladies tightly squeezed into the noodle shop!

    Hi Mariusz
    yes, I was going to mention that cloud, it's snuck in tightly below the top of the frame, it looks perfect.
    without the cloud it just wouldn't have the same visual effect overall would it?

    such a fine day to walk around and enjoy the sights.
    warm lighting, clouds, people and activity, old trams, lots of stone and textured rooftops...lots to like here.

    well done with the exposure and crispness.

    Hi Stephen
    hey would you look at that...i wondered how it would look on the inside..and here's the answer :)

    To be honest it looks quite dated.
    kind of like how a home would need to be renovated and updated.

    but thats just my opinion.
    I really appreciate seeing the inside though, it completes the other photo, and brings everything together.

    Hi Carlo
    a perfect example of old vs modern.
    i'm sure when this was build many many decades ago, they didn't have that water pipe running down the side on the left :)
    the flags add in some color splashes which is always appreciated. fine textures in the wall too.

    Hi Ike
    one charming, one not so charming :)
    in shots exactly like this one, i enjoy seeing the contrast between the 2 blues of water vs sky.
    if they were the same colors, it just wouldn't work or be as effective.
    nice shot

    very interesting indeed!
    I like the additional info you provided in your note, it all makes sense to me now.
    nice to have the other buildings in the frame, as it smartly fills out the composition.

    Hi Christiane
    actually, my favourite part of this scene are the tall masts from all of the boats in the upper bg.
    the red jet ski and red shirt are a fine contrast to all the whites and blues.
    a fine summer type scene.
    the exposure is spot on.
