‘Sighnaghi - Looking for a room with a balcony ?’
Sighnaghi is a small town in the east of Georgia, in the province Kakheti.
It’s often described as a place with an Italian look.
This refers primarily to the view people have of the town on the hill seen from a distance. Have a look at my previous post.
In the town itself there are lots of typical Georgian features, such as the many balconies on the houses.
A picture of another street can be found in the workshop.
Sighnaghi has been renovated thoroughly and yes, it is touristic (at least according to Georgian standards). But it is a very beautiful and picturesque town and I believe it’s a real paradise for photographers.
There are lots of comfortable and inexpensive hotels and guest houses that make the stay very pleasant.
Economically important for Sighnaghi are the production of wine, traditional carpets and tourism.

Very nice view to small town road. The houses are in excellent light and the pink color is very well contrasting against the green backdrop. The two ladies add nice life to the scene. Well done.

vedo ancora una volta, che osservare il paesaggio dai balconi o dalle finestre, è uno degli sport preferiti dai fotografi, in effetti è la prima sensazione che si ha andando in un luogo nuovo e osservarlo da un oh ho di vista diverso.
Molto simpatica la presenza delle due signore con l'ombrello che passeggiano sotto questi balconi piuttosto originali.

U zei mij ik heb vele foto's misschien net niet voldoende voor TE.
Wel Paul, deze beide foto's zijn van goede kwaliteit, geven iets mee, en architecturaal een beauty foto.
De balkons spreken mijn erg aan, hoe mensen van vroeger het zo mooi konden uitvoeren, ik heb ook nog leren tekenen op een tekentafel met een T lat, en de winkelhaak.
Heel mooie foto goed samengesteld en schitterend gepresenteerd.

Tu avais une bien belle vue de ton balcon. J'aime la profondeur offerte par les maisons pressées les unes contre les autres au dessus de la rue. Les marcheurs offrent une belle perspective.

I like this street view taken from slightly higher POV. The scene placed against the green hill looks especially attractive. The buildings on both sides of the street are interesting and make the whole setting more colorful. There are also many nice details which make one dwell on this picture for longer.
Good colors and well managed light.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy the rest of your day

A very attractive street scene with these wonderful buildings details and colours. A very pleasant green landscape behind.

Another nice entry within your captures from Georgia.
Good pov and nice background of the scenery with the foresty hill.
The dominating pink color softens the effect.
TFS and have a nice weekend

beautiful the presented section of the town with the balconies to are really very artistic and are the eye catching of the visitors.I like the good presentation as the created depth of the image.

Mid-summer hot day, Paul, as there is the lady with the parasol in hand.
Yet, the bright daylight enhanced the beauty of the pink and white painted houses, contrast with the green tree on left and forest on the hill's slope on far.
Fine perspective, pleasent to look at.

Italian style or not, this looks marvellously idyllic and pretty. That guest house to the left might have been a nice place to stay. The signs indicate that modern life has indeed arrived here. I like the contrasts of the pink buildings against the green background with a touch of grey, and the green leaves with a touch of yellow.

Hier heb je zeker geen moeite om een hotel of een pension te vinden, de toerist heeft keus te over. Mooie doorkijk op deze aantrekkelijke straat met zijn huizen versierd met fraaie houten balkons. De zacht glooiende straat en het perspectief langs de huizen leiden het oog naar de twee vrouwen wier paraplu perfect past bij de kleur van de huizen. Het groene bos zorgt voor een aangenaam contrast met de heldere tinten van de foto. Dit stadje ziet er heel charmant, gezellig en rustig uit, zeker de geschikte plek om enkele dagen van de mooie architectuur en natuur te genieten. Mooi gedaan, Paul.

A magnificent composition with the prospect of this street, against the backdrop of the great mountain greenery, amazing these great balconies projecting much façade on the street definitely a constructive feature here.
Beautiful color range.
Excellent lighting and sharpness, giving an image with rich hues.
Well done. I love it.
Have a good day.

How lucky you were with this view of the colored houses and balconies made of wooden, it seems
Great way to present the scene with the green vegetation at the back and the woman with the also pink umbrella
A real pity the advertisements of the Hotel and guest house
ChrisJ (99338) 2014-02-22 13:06
Effective tight framing and the woman with a pink parasol suggests it is a hot sunny day despite the lack of rainclouds. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts with superb saturation. I like the warm cold color contrasts between the magenta and green. Tfs!
