the new town seen from the citadell. In the lower part you can see the old turkish Bazar with the mosque.
I end where I started this series in the wonderful little town of Kruje built against a mountain looking out of the central valley, with a lot of historical value.

very fine POV for this city with a tremendous amount of different buildings. Some modern and grey, some modern and colourful, the white mosque, pink and white houses, roofs in red and brown. The view over the slope to the valley is nice, the city is adding a lot more.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Belle vue sur les toits avec des couleurs eclatantes.
La flèche blanche du minaret apporte un plus!
C'est très bien vu, superbe série sur l'albanie!

City texture is smells still old city and you very well captured. I like view of roof tiles in green and your way adding blue sea and mountains to your scene. Congratulations.

Your high POV afforded you an excellent bird's eye shot over the rooftops. I like the high contrast from the early/late(?) light. The diagonal of the mountain slope is a strong element of the composition.

The point of view is very good,the lightness is also good and the depth.

I like the asymmetric setting, with the hillside and the city that rises in diagonal from the left side towards the right, in a very beautiful landscape, with the minaret that is outlined vertically.
The image has a lot of depth and a background with several tones of grey and a beautiful blue sky, which they give a great effect at sight.

Very beautiful view taken.
I like the colours of the roofs.
riclopes (35577) 2007-03-09 15:35
Excellent view from above the city, Gerrit. I like the diagonal of the inclination and it's nice to see the misty mountain landscape after the houses. Excellent work with the series.

Beautiful city, very well captured with an amazing POV. Nice view of the roofs with different colors, very interesting the way the city was built on the mountain with an excellent view of the valley. Very good composition.
Well done. TFS.

Beautiful panorama on this city joined with the mountain. I like very much the management of the light which gives a pleasant relief to the landscape. Clearness is very appreciable too. The background gives depth. Beautiful and interesting photograph, thank you Gerrit.
With my all friendships and a good WE,

I learn something from this photo ... composing a sloping scene... I like the almost diagonal horizontal way this was composed.... very effective. Excellent shot and very good quality. TFS
Graal (102896) 2007-03-11 2:42
good POV, great colours and landscape. Fine serie from Albania. I like it.

Good shot with this diagonal of the city.Good sharpness and many nice details to see.I like the contrast between the red roofs and the many trees.
jafadabret (56501) 2007-03-11 5:20
C'est un excellent POV pour nous faire découvrir ce village à flanc de colline avec le minaret de sa mosquée qui fait un bon point d'accroche.
zeca (19762) 2007-03-11 9:44
Very nice capture! Its really nice to know Albania by your lens! TFS!
papagolf21 (102024) 2007-03-11 10:07
Bonjour, mon ami Gerrit,
Et dire que j'ai failli passer à côté de cette très belle prise de vue.
Difficile de trouver meilleur endroit pour rendre honneur à cette ville, son habitation et ses édifices.
Une très bonne réalisation fort intéressante.
jemaflor (97333) 2007-03-12 7:05
A good pov to give a nice composition on this town, good light too, well taken.
vagabondtravels (6511) 2007-03-12 8:43
Good pov. You can really see forever. Good job capturing the beauty of this town.I really like the minaret standing tall. Well done.
ChrisJ (114061) 2007-03-12 9:44
Missed this one. I like the bright, vibrant saturated, colours. Good sharpness, & a superb high pov. The diagonals of the red roofed terrace houses enhance the compo. Tfs!
john_c (24666) 2007-03-13 13:35
This has been a great series covering a picturesque and little known part of the world. I like the perspective here, high over the red roofs and the white obelisk/minaret/tower rising above the other buildings. There is good contrast and depth, with a view of the sea in the distance and the precipitous nature of the mountainside. Well captured.
TeresaT (10806) 2007-03-14 16:39
A very beauitful view of this Town.
oerfect POv and definition.
And the different tones of red from the roofs create a nice graphical effect.
DIBRANI (24) 2007-03-15 12:07
Is a breathtaking view,this city so rich in history deserves to be on spot!Great POV!
capthaddock (28790) 2007-03-17 20:07
Hi Gerrit - I'd never heard of this town before, indeed it looks like somewhere in the provinces of Turkey, which means nice, (and some not so nice), architecture.
PixelTerror (0) 2007-03-19 5:00
Good overlooking voew on the town and its mountainous surroundings, the eye is drawn by the mosque minaret which is a rather unusual element in an european cityscape.
Have a nice day,
Angshu (56758) 2007-03-19 23:52
A grand view composed well with the diagonal. Love the red roofs, also aligned in a diagonal with the minaret in the centre. Great depth..lovely shot!
