Vienna is quite close to Warsaw, easy and not expensive to go there, so it seemed less exciting than Spanish cities. But I was very glad that I planned a few days there. The atmosphere in Vienna is fantastic. It is so relaxed and pleasant, specially when the days were sunny. My favorite place was near Karls Kirche. Usually I run through the city, but there I also enjoyed to sit in the evening on the rim of the pool and be lazy and observing the people and ducks. And I felt young in different way :)

Now you decided to be a paparazzi :) very relaxed atmosphere. I like POV between to Saints.

A very nice and relaxed photo with human activities in the foreground and parts of the chuch seen across the pool. I hope that you learn from this experience that taking a break, watching life floating by and enjoying the local atmosphere can be just as rewarding as seeing yet another church :-).

I just love your thoughts!
I can identify with you!
This is a lovely scene.
What a place to be young!
You have given us human interest against a beautiful backdrop. Your depth of field is perfect.
The shadows and the reflections are excellent features to add to the overall ambience.
Have a great day,

A fine capture of this romantic moment. I like the point of view with the palatial building in the background making a magnificent backdrop to the scene. Lovely warm light and colours. Oh what it is to be young again:-)

Budynek w tle znany z wcześniejszych prezentacji i porównania w czasie, ale teraz pokazałaś calkiem fajna serie. Te turystki/turyści wiedza ze maja swoje zdjecie na TE? Pewnie sa nieswiadomi ze istnieje takie miejsce. Czasem warto poobserwowac sobie miasto bez pospiechu, złapać w kadrze ciekawe sytuacje. Dobrze ze o tym przypominasz.

Bo młodym być i więcej nic ..., każde miejsce na ziemi jest dobre na młodość, fajna scenka

une atmosphère agréable se dégage de cette photo, sûrement celle que tu as ressenti en flânant dans Vienne. Une belle image de ces jeunes gens.

Beautiful relaxed picture of the pool with the young people. The church with its elegant architecture makes a great backdrop. I liked the different moods displayed by the couple on the left and the lone girl to the right. Both beautiful in their own ways. The workshop pictures are great too. The overall warm tones of the pictures make them really pleasing and intimate.
Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

I like this informal street portrait. They are so engrossed in each other, they appear not to have noticed you or your camera. Maybe it's a shame that their bags and coats make a slightly distracting clutter; and maybe the other seated figure dilutes the impact of the pair of lovers just a tad. But that's street photography for you: you take what you're given! The street is not a studio.

Very nice mood and composition (very tight, but also very precise). Makes me miss my own youth... :D
carlo62 (41323) 2014-08-04 14:39
ci sono giovani, ex giovani e giovani diversi...
Tutti modi di essere giovani, ma la realtà è che i giovani sono giovani veramente e questo non è sempre un vantaggio.
Bello scatto, ci sono eleganti architetture e molti ragazzi, non tutti in compagnia.

Youngsters enjoying the sunny pool side with a glimpse of the magnificent architecture with dominate angel statues.
I do not "look back" nor envy youth, I am content to be alive and continue experiencing life and sharing.
bukitgolfb301 (38528) 2014-08-04 17:53
Hi dear Malgo, how are you?
Ya very significant image, ta\hat makes me remember youth ages. Full of love and romance, that awakes me my energy.
Sharp and clear image as usual, so vivid color touch and nice sharp day light is so wonderful to see.
All the best and have a good day! Takero from Tokyo

l'endroit a l'air de plaire à la jeunesse de Vienne! Trois intéressantes photos de scènes de rue.
macjake (63232) 2014-08-05 4:00
you bring up a very interesting point - saying that Vienna is so close to Warsaw...almost like its a bad thing or not a very exciting option for travel.
I mention it because Canada is the 2nd largest country in the world! and we only have 1 neighboring country in the USA.
I'm so jealous of Europeans who can easily get onto a train, and within an hour, 2 hours, 4 hours, be in a number of various countries :)
We can't really do that here in Canada, traveling is very expensive.
as for the photo, i really enjoy it.
same with the WS photos.
younger or older, we can all enjoy sitting near the pond/fountain, relax and soak in the sun.
nice to hear you didn't 'run' through the city :)
Cricri (113671) 2014-08-05 6:44
Trois belles images toutes différentes, romantique, cool, sympathique, un endroit plaisant autour de cette fontaine, belle lumière et couleurs
adramad (42045) 2014-08-05 9:26
You catch a good time at this charming romantic scene, in an ideal setting, having as background the facade of the church and the reflections in the pond.
Splendid range of colors.
Also both sharpness, such as lighting are great.
Well taken photo. I like it
Enjoy a nice day.
fritzi007 (9953) 2014-08-05 15:15
wirklich eine sehr gute Freizeitszene, sehr jugendlich, sehr guter Hintergrundund ein Wetter wie in Warschau, oder?
Wünsch dir eine schöne Zeit
ChrisJ (107157) 2014-08-06 2:22
I have yet to visit Vienna and also Budapest which are both on my to do list. Nice reflections in the fountain with good sharpness and superb framing and composition. Nice symmetry of the bg white angel statues. Good shadow detail in the facade of the neoclassical Greco Roman building in the bg. Tfs!
eldancer1 (33953) 2014-08-06 10:25
Ah, yes, to be young again with nothing to worry about except being with someone you love. Awesome candid capture of this young lovers with good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.

Good morning Miss Malgo,
Hmmm, the first part of your note sounds quite familiar...a la the Grand Canyon for me. ;)
Vienna is indeed a great city, full of impressive and sophisticated history and architecture...but it's scenes like this that make up the fabric of its modern day citizens. Sigh....yes, to be young again...how would it be, yeah? :)
A great picture which details the easy-going and fun loving atmosphere of some time with companions. Who knows, maybe we'll even come across some of our own in the very near future. :) See you soon! Take good care.
Cheers from Az.,

Hello Malgo - You have captured the atmosphere of relaxation and enjoyment very well in this shot. It's such a pleasure to see young people out in the sun and thriving on the pleasures of travel and sightseeing. Times have changed so much since I was this age... the freedom to go off for a trip just didn't seem to be on my radar.... studying and work was the direction I was steered in!
A well seen moment.
annjackman (21400) 2014-08-10 4:30
A perfectly sharp picture showing relaxation and lovely light. A very good candid photo of these people enjoying themselves.
Best wishes, Ann
CLODO (33050) 2014-08-10 4:57
to visit the foreign countries, no need to hurry in the crowded places, but pace at your own rythm on the streets and places and observe the people behaviour. In love younsters do not care about the church in the back!
