Just back from another journey and ready to upload my first picture.
This is a view towards the old part of Tbilisi, capital of Georgia. Old Tbilisi is magnificently situated between a mountain-range and the Mtkvari river. Several old churches, an ancient fortress and spectacular modern structures line the mountain-sides and make the city very well suited for postcards. Generally I found it more difficult to take the kind of street-shots that I like.

molto romantica la presenza della coppia in tenero atteggiamento, tra l'altro perfettamente collocata nella scena. Bella la luce, i colori e la qualità, well done.
Un caro saluto

Hi, So you are beack from Giorgia. I am sure you had wonderful holidays. When I see the view of T bilisi, I mute immediately the Polish very old song: If there was a paradise on Earth, it was for sure there, I come back in dreams to Tbilisi.
It fits wonderfully to your photo.
Warm regards from hot Warsaw

A fine double feature with the historical buildings in the background and the living/loving couple in the foreground. You found a good position get them both at each third of the view, well composed.

Hello Gert. So you were now en route to Georgia. And even the first photo is so atmospheric. The couple and the environment are combined perfectly. Well seen and presented. Rgds, Wolfgang.

Nice romantic picture with a colored foreground and a beautiful landscape, an moment of happyness and peacefull. May be with a blue sky it should be more beautiful

This is your another romantic photograph, so it's impressive to see architectures with interesting shape in the nature, the surrounding greenery and flower. And, a couple draws out a good mood in this image.
Have a nice day.

I see you are back! This photo does exactly what it says on the tin! Superb compositon with the couple very well placed on the right, lovely flowers (looks like lavender)and a wonderful church building in the backgroud.
Maybe it could have done with a bit more contrast.
Thanks for sharing and waiting for more from your lattest trip.

Welcome back and what a surprise!
It's a nice capture of an intimate and expressive moment and the peaceful surrounding helps in setting the mood and this leaves the viewers imagination. A very tender, both look totally at ease together and emotive image for all the right reasons but i like the compo and framing with all the emphasis on the hand and body contact. Great mood evoked on this well spotted opportunity. Well done.

A Romantic Moment indeed!
And what nicer than a moment of tender romantic bliss in such a beautiful setting? The soft light, the lovely green fields and a wonderful old church as a fine backdrop. True peace and tranquillity!
Lovely lighting, beautiful soft and true colours, perfect exposure, a pleasing composition and stunning sharpness.
I'm looking forward to seeing some more from your trip to Georgia, Gert.

Hi dear Gert
Sorry for my late reaction.
Yes, exactlly, that is very very romantic image, with best framework and best composition. Best proportion of two couple, nicely melt with the background.
Thanks for your sharing, and have a good day,

Hello Gert! I like the clean lines and the characteristic churchs of architecture!A fine point of view and the subject is well framed by the trees, rich colours and fine details!The angle that you have used in this setting is perfect for this photo of the church and its architecture. I like the green frame that you have obtained including the trees and the FG romantic moment and also the good control of the difficult light on BG
Good exposure, in this nice composition.
dkmurphys (46140) 2012-06-20 2:25
Simple and very beautiful scene. I like the background, well seen!
serp2000 (37875) 2012-06-20 4:22
Glad to see your new photos from last trip to Georgia.
Good title and very romantic scene indeed.
I like this vertical composition with the old Georgian churches on the BG.

Hello dear Gert,
I still wait for some captures from your recent stay in İstanbul !
This one from Tbilisi is also great ! This young couple could not have a better and pictoresque background than those beautiful typical Georgian chapels.
It's amazing to see that much sacral buildings together in a relative small area and so close to each other.
TFS and best regards

This looks like a village of churches. The architecture of the stone buildings and the many bell towers is impressive and interesting and gives us a great idea of how fascinating the old part of the city is. They look somehow dim, though, compared to the vivid colours and intense and tender moment you' ve included on the foreground. The view that could be a postcard is now a lovely scene of daily life which probably has a special personal significance for the couple. A wonderful picture, well done and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,

nice scene on FG, a bit romantic. An interesting place in Tbilisi. Nice view of churches and architecture. Photo I like.
Have a nice evening.
Kielia (22913) 2012-06-24 6:48
what a nice view! You have chosen an excellent POV to present us the romantic moment. The light is also very nice and the moody colors are matching perfectly. That was a successful journey. My compliments!
jlbrthnn (79791) 2012-06-24 14:59
You were in the right place at the right time. This is both an image of architecture, and a romantic picture. Flowers add to the passion. Excellent light, colors, sharpness and depth. Bravo.
Have a nice day
Waylim (25034) 2012-06-25 18:22
What a you doing peeping at the people having a romantic moment? Kidding! Joke aside, this is a very cute and romantic shot, a Valentine's Day greeting card. Beautiful background wiht all teh wonderful architecture too. The foreground of light green and yellow plants frame the bottom of the image beautifully. A LOVELY shot for sure. Now let leave them alone shauld we?

tout est dans le titre, et en plus du romantisme, il y le calme, celui d'une belle journée de fin de printemps. Une photo bien construite à la verticale avec un clin d'oeil à l'architecture.
Angshu (54709) 2012-06-29 2:07
The BG seems 'cluttered' with highly interestig buildings, with churches, spires & typical buildings. You captured a tender scene with the couple framed by the wild flowers & grass. Nice..
fanni (14377) 2012-07-06 10:13
indeed, a very romantic scene :) Luckily, also the lighting conditions were in your favour.
by the way, these yellow flowers in the FG enliven the scene pretty nicely as the day seems to be cloudy. Very well framed vertical composition.
warmest wishes from sunny Moscow,
mkamionka (29199) 2012-07-06 12:18
beautiful capture. Great combination of the splendid architecture so unique for this region and the romantic moment in the foreground. Very well spotted.
Thanks for sharing your photos from this underrepresented on TE wonderful country.
Tigerlily (2915) 2012-07-10 1:19
Oh.. I love this one.. beautiful romantic postcard to home:-D
Excellent composition, the forground of the couple and the back ground of the building made a very nice contrast and balance.
