View of Salzburg after sunset. The silly title is a failed attempt to recreate the street patterns using keyboard characters. Taken from just beyond a sterile contemporary building at the top of the western edge of old Salzburg, there is a funicular to the top under the mountain. I was surprised to see some of the larger churches, and the fortress (the white thing on top of the hill at right) not illuminated at night.

Ok, I confess: "The sound of music" is among my favourites movies so I realy look forward to visit Salzburg.
After such a great statement, as brave as to get out of the closet in the midle of a family chrismast dinner, I will say that I love the shapes that the streets create together with the lights. It´s a photo with a touch of nostalgy. I love the little... Is it martian? (Sorry for the joke, it´s prevacational syndrome, I will be OK as soon as I get the plane next monday).

The strong lines of the river and brightly lit street leading into the frame give a great sense of depth to the image, and I like how the scene is divided up into segments by the street patterns.
There's a real clarity to the shot that makes it look more like a model than a real city, quite an interesting effect.
I think shifting the framing to the left slightly to cut down on the trees on the right would improve it, but otherwise this is very well taken.
Good work Tan.

Hi Tan, this is a great evening view. Fabulous colours and detail. I love the deep blue sky - your timing is spot on.

Fascinating view looking over Salzburg, where the lit streets make a bold pattern not necessarily equating with the most worthy sights to be seen. The exposure and contrasts are well managed giving us a clear view of pretty much all the city.

une photo à l'heure bleue, j'aime voir ces maisons se détacher avec leurs couleurs orangées et jaunes.
Une photo qui a de la profondeur surtout avec ce chateau sur les hauteurs.
Un excellent POV et une expo précise.
Angelillo (9374) 2007-07-28 13:53
It's really amazing this shot. The geometrical lines very well alightned, the double reflection, the lights and the beautiful shadows... One need to see two times to capture the complexity and the beauty of this great capture! Great great shot! Thanks.

A beautiful view over the illuminated streets of the city. The colours are very rich and pleasant and I find the composition excellent!
Cormac (26565) 2007-07-28 14:53
Great night shot! The lights certainly create a pattern that is interesting, and the night shot is a different take on the normal view of the city. One thing that I like is the small amount of light in the sky, which allows us to see the surrounding hills and is much better than a black background. Nicely done!
alvaraalto (10796) 2007-07-28 14:58
This great composition in blue and yellow is a real piece of art. A beautiful fairy-tale like ambiance. And of great photogenic quality.
tehanu_f (6896) 2007-07-28 15:11
Great TLC as usual, Tan. I like the way you lead the viewer to the mountains behind following the lines created by the lights and the river. Thanks to the blue hour, the background is not dull. Still, I'd like to see a tad more light in the distance. Anyway, it's a nice shot. Congrats.
Greg1949 (9011) 2007-07-28 15:43
Great lnes on this, exposure is great but it is the composition, well seen.
SamB (1948) 2007-07-28 15:44
Nice work, you composed it well, pulling the streets and buildings into the river and the river and mountains into the castle. The oranges and yellows of the foreground lights look good against the evening blues of the sky, as well.
dkeus31 (27735) 2007-07-28 16:00
A nice view from above at Salzburg, blue hour and almost hearing "eine kleine Nachtmusik"
isn't your title not related to the hill, the river and the road rather than only roads?
pat0500 (21561) 2007-07-28 16:34
I like the pictures of night and this one is wonderful..!
Very nice POV and very beautiful colours, good shot per blue hour..!
Beautiful place for the good shot, nice details and very good quality of image..!
Congratulations my friend..!
gneufeld (15890) 2007-07-28 17:11
Another fine night image. This presentation is worth noting for the warm colors, good clarity, and excellent detail. Great work and thanks for sharing. Gerald
bakes888 (18499) 2007-07-28 21:55
Hi Tan. Perhaps ^\\V would work a little better. Anyway great photo. You have balanced the exposure well to get a little detail in the sky as well. Well composed with excellent lead-in lines. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Tan...very interesting composition and excellent techincal photograph.

jjcordier (79297) 2007-07-28 23:10
Cet éclairage très particulier de la ville la remodèle totalement et j'ai eu de la peine à la reconnaître. Ta photo est vraiment une petite merveille et nous donne une vision assez féérique de cette superbe ville.

it is a nice Photo Tan,
the nightshot is well taken, the pov is exelent and the lines are good, the details are very good and nice to look at, very good photo job here, congratiolation. have a nice day.
cherryripe (21033) 2007-07-29 0:24
Great effect here, to me the triangle of buildings in the foreground look like a reflection even though they aren't. The smooth water is stunning as are the details of the lit buildings. It's crazy that they don't light up the famous fortress but at least it stands out OK in the blue hour.
claudigan (2837) 2007-07-29 1:03
how wonderfull is Salzburg by night with your look. As you, i can't beleive St Rupert church and the fortress are not lightened!(There were some works at this time on St Rupert church walls that can probabily explain) The light is fantastic and the contrast of colours perfect. i just wonder what is the kind of smoke we can see dawn in the center of the picture.
PixelTerror (0) 2007-07-29 4:56
Grüss Gott Kapitan,
nice pov as usual, some highlights seem a bit high but the shapes of the city are very nice and despite the lack of light on some buildings we can still see enough of them thanks to blue hour timing
Have a nice sunday JY
john_c (24666) 2007-07-29 6:53
Although it would have been preferable to have the fortress and other churches lit up, you obtained a superb exposure level here, with the lights muted and appealing as opposed to dazzling. I especially like the inverted V effect leading from the foreground. There is just the right proportion of blue hour sky to enhance nicely. Well captured, Tan.

Great quality for this night shot.
I like the strong light line.
Xalkida (11744) 2007-07-29 14:58
Impressive night shot from an amazing place. I like how you chose this 'Y' style street scene to give more geometry to your composition. Excellent job.
vincz (19113) 2007-07-29 17:37
Fantastic picture! I am amazed by all the details, amazed by the mastering of light, some part are very dreamy, some look like reflections at first glance. magical.
Bruno40 (6658) 2007-07-29 21:53
Great night view of Salzburg. Framing, POV, exposure are perfect, as usual.
mpsf (731) 2007-07-30 6:34
Hola Tan, muy bella imagen nocturna en la que se pueden ver con todo detalle los bonitos edificios, sus iglesias y palacios, me gusta el que se ve al fondo sobre una montaña. Buen enfoque, color y detalle. Saludos.
Paolo (41222) 2007-07-30 9:08
Hi Tan, wonderful night view, with excellent quality, perfect exposure and a great view over the city, with fantastic colours.
jemaflor (96143) 2007-07-31 9:20
great night shot, perfect light capture, lovely bluenight sky and interesting effect with these lines for depth and composition, well done.
startacked (1355) 2007-07-31 13:18
This one is just *SO* good! Even that title cannot mess it up x-:
The frame is totally filled, colors and sharpness is good, as is the angle. Very interesting picture, looks like it is straight from some kind of.. I don't know. If I shot it, I would blow it up and hang it on my wall. And nobody favorite-ed yet?! TFS, Gilbert
enedimd (1532) 2007-08-02 4:19
Actually, this is great shot. Colors, reflections, architectural view, composition, light management are all so good. Excellent POV.
Have a nice day with my friendly regards.
gilou530 (34) 2007-08-02 13:30
un excellent pov une photo a l'heure bleu grandiose et graphisme des V netteté et couleurs au top, bravo

The right guy, in the right place, in the right moment. Just lovely shot of the blue hour, Mozart would be proud.
Angshu (56750) 2007-08-05 20:59
Strong lines indeed. This is an unique view of Salzburg. You do find fantastic POVs to show us the world & this is no exception. Excellent colours with superb exposure control. Magical shot! Love your title
pboehringer (770) 2007-08-05 21:38
A classic POV from Mozart's city although your uniqueness waiting for this almost past blue hour, Tan. The golden light penetrating out of the urban gorges is really great. You have a perfect light management without a single overezposure in the more bright areas. The detail of the V's in the composition and your title is quite funny. Good eye, but that is probably something more than natural in your profession.
barni (15751) 2007-08-06 6:20
Très belle image de cette ville à la lumière des éclairages public.

Fantastic view of Salzburg all lit up! I love the amazing details, the beautiful lit op portions of the town and the silhouettes of the mountains. Excellent POV and well captured! Excellent work, Tan!

Belle photo de cette ville la nuit, la prise en hauteur permet de voire les ilots qui sont très jolis.Les reflets sur l' eau sont magnifique et les douces lumières superbes.Grande netteté. Je la met dans mes favorittes. Amitiés Thomas
TopGeo (38216) 2007-08-11 1:09
Hi Tan, this is a great evening view! It's a wonderful ideal scene. The geometrical lines very well development, the double reflection, the lights and the beautiful shadows, giving us a clear view of pretty much all the city. The light is fantastic and the contrast of colours perfect, good clarity, details and blue of the sky excellent,,Bravo Georgios.

Noar (57) 2007-08-23 12:48
That a really good night shot !
The street are very weel drawn and the sky has a good color (i think it was not completley dark yet, no?).
jmcl (14535) 2007-08-25 12:19
Oh man Tan .. again for the 365th time ... you have found "the" point of few. Great control and use of the range of light. You are right the unlit buildings are surprising .. Beautiful image .. my wife spent a summer in Salzburg (she is a violinist) .. she will love to see this. Thanks for sharing it.
Didi (60588) 2007-09-01 11:47
Very nice picture in the blue hour, I note here a good management of lights and a very good point of view on the city.
Scharan (14144) 2007-09-01 18:19
Lindíssima foto, muito especial pela composição, reflexos e cores lindíssimas. Vários detalhes lindos, um trabalho fantástico Tan!
batalay (38593) 2007-09-02 19:16
A very successful night shot of Salzburg, one of the most beautiful of cities in central Europe. The colors and resolution are first rate.
Manamo (3710) 2007-10-23 17:50
I like those street "on fire". They create nice patterns, nice lines. I agree that those buildings (and your picture) would be more beautiful if lit. The long exposure give that nice texture that I like on the water.
All the best,
testmaniac (13508) 2008-01-05 10:17
Hi Tan, very nice night city shot with good composition,POV,lights and colors.! Nice place and superb photo quality!
TFS and regards,
woozbman (368) 2008-01-05 11:45
Very nice combination of warm and cool colors, interesting lines and geometric shapes. Just wondering what that is in the middle at the bottom; maybe cigarette smoke?
chpp (4281) 2008-01-15 6:35
Very very nice image! It's one of my favourite cities in Europe.
Great exposure, light and colours and the POV is fantastic. It allows us to see the city and the river with nice depth and the hill in the back contrasting witht he blue sky
very fine job
djole_ (200) 2011-05-24 7:15
This is a very, very nice night shot. Framing is great, you caught the ''blue hour'' and I realy like those lighttrails on the roads. Not dark at all, and some nice details. Thumbs up!
