It's surprising how Belgium has managed to stay so quiet abut Ghent for so long. Once medieval Europe's second largest city, over the past century this unsung treasure of a town has developed a strong artistic bent, and is now one of the best places in Europe for culture - there are many fantastic museums and galleries here, and more listed buildings than any other Belgian city.

Hello Daniel ,
Despite of the cloudy weather and the poor light , the view is very pleasant , with somme vivid colors of the fašades . The top of the red barge in the FG is a little distracting , but I suppose that it was not possible toto get the entire boat .

Ŕ passato un anno preciso, ma la bellezza della cittÓ rimane immutata da molti anni.
Qui ci offrý un bellissimo scorcio di questa cittÓ, forse uno dei meno conosciuti, ma, proprio per questo, pi¨ interessante.

I like very much the way you composed and framed this picture, focusing on the tight row of buildings that combine picturesque and modern elements. The heavy sky sets off the cityscape, the perspective is attractive and a lot of details are distributed along the bank for us to study. The lighting and colours create a low key but appealing mood. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

These houses really look very nice and indicate that Ghent's reputation as a city of culture is true. Each building seems to have a style of its own. The grey sky was quite favourable to the colours, which are very mild and pleasant.

Ghent is indeed very beautiful and interesting town with many fantastic places to visit. This is rather unusual view from Ghent, with quite modern houses on the canal. excellent presentation.
happy New Year!

A fine perspective on these attractive and varied fašades. Superb colours and detail.

Very nice shot even on greyish winter day and looking at the colouful buildings across is just lovely. A peaceful piece of work, enjoyed perspective and depth
with good people presence. Wel done

Despite the grey sky, Ghent does look like a very pleasant place worth a visit indeed.
A shame that lonely old house in the typical Hansa style is surrounded by those rather ugly modern buildings. But I am sure the old town is still very much intact?
I wish you a happy new year

good shot with well chosen POV and well balanced proportions of the whole composition. Natural and properly saturated colors of the buildings. Good sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

happy new year

Ŕ assai apprezzabile la semplicitÓ di questa inquadratura che in una grigia giornata ha colto un aspetto molto bello della cittÓ di Gand, la pi¨ bella delle Fiandre.
Molto bella la composizione ed eccellenti i colori che mettono a contrasto le tinte pastello delle case con il colore grigio del cielo.
Una atmosfera triste e - proprio per questo - a mio parere, ancora pi¨ affascinante.
Il tutto unito ad una nitidezza di ottimo livello.
Ciao e auguri di un felice 2014.
