A good perspective on these colourfully painted houses that have an allure all of their own. The lovely vibrant colours contrast well with the pale blue sky. The parked cars, although usually rather annoying, seem to 'belong' in the composition and contribute much to the mood of the shot.

The lamposts are framing well the houses. The point of view is allowing me to see the details and colors of the houses. There is a good contrast between the different colors of the houses. Have a nice day.

tolles Licht und leuchtende Farben auf den kolonialen Gebäuden bestimmen diese schöne Aufnahme. Der Blickwinkel ist gut gewählt und mir gefällt das Spiel mit Licht und Schatten auf der Straße.
Viele Grüße aus dem Donautal,

Olá Achim, very diferent from the Granada where I live :) Nice and charming line of colorful houses. The motorbike and the local lady approaching makes a good counterpoint to the façades.

Hi Achim, I really like this colonial image in Granada.. I would imagine they were small little cottages when they were first built and now colourful and bright. I see that you used a 200ISO? in that light could you not have increasd that to a 100 ISO? Just a question for my own knowledge. TFS Rich

I am sorry that they have cancelled your flight to Gdansk, I suppose because of the great cloud of ashes of the Icelandic volcano, for this reason it would not be a bad idea to remain a few days in Barcelona; o)
About your photo, I like the strength of the vivid colors in these colonial houses, and the alignment of the lampposts in front of them, in a good framing that accentuates the diagonals and the perspective of this street.
Good light, and good sharpness also.
A beautiful work, my friend.

C'est une belle perspective de façades colorées. J'aime la composition et les couleurs sous une bonne lumière.

Male, ali lepe kuce obojene zivim bojama i okovima na prozorima sa lampinjonima ispred dali su lep motiv a ste ih prikazali lepom fotografijom.
Lepo izgleda, lepo za gledanje, Paja.
Small, but beautiful houses painted vivid colors and chains on front windows lampinjonima gave a nice theme and you have a beautiful photo display.
Nice looking, nice to watch, Paja.

Splendid view of this lovely Latin American architecture that is seen in great clarity and sharp details.
pablominto (53744) 2010-04-18 23:48
The fine light makes the pinkish houses blossom..!
Seems like a peaceful moment in this street, as judged by the shadows either beginning or end of the day...
A nicely balanced composition with good depth!

An interesting and very good view of this typische coloured colonial house. POv well selcetd which give prospect effect, life with the lady on the right and plesant play of shade.
Have a nice week,
JCG (35129) 2010-04-19 10:32
Original and interesting coloured architectures. The night, this space of life must be also pretty with the light of all these standard lamps which, in the image, add a graphic aspect. Beautiful perspective and good quality of the image, thank you Achim.
With all my friendships and a very good evening,
