This shot has been taken in Bruges close to the St. Salvator's Cathedral which tower you can see in the background. The historic city centre is a prominent World Heritage Site of UNESCO. It is oval-shaped and about 430 hectares in size and it is sometimes referred to as "The Venice of the North".
Happy 2013 Dear Friends!

The weather didn't do you any favours, but you have captured the colour and detail in the lovely architecture very well indeed. The people add vitality to the scene with cyclist nicely juxtapositioned with the little group in the background. Happy New Year 2013 to you!

like this shot! The height and depth are just sublime as is your composition, that entices us into the street and wants us to follow the cyclist up and around the corner to view the magnificent Cathedral close up. Executed and presented beautifully.
Enjoy the weekend - Brian.

Interesting picture. Somehow there is an atmosphere I think from way back. Maybe because of the dark colors, the buildings, the light and the dark corners.
npecanhuk (63594) 2012-12-30 4:18
Wonderful urban environment and architectural details!
Very beautiful and attractive pcitrue!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, vertical format, black borders, chosen pov and composition are all excellent photo qualities that really pleased me!
It was a grey cloudy day but you were fortunate to have some people in the streets to make this image a bit livelier!
TFS - congrats,
A very Happy and Prosperous 2013 !

UlfE (14641) 2012-12-30 4:44
The weather was obviously not the best, but you mangaged to take an excellent photo anyway. The inclusion of the cyclist is really great and makes the scene very vivid. The vertical format with the tall brick building very well postioned also contribute to the attractivenss of the scene. TFS and Happy New Year!

excellent composition, very well thought out with a carefully chosen angle. The old architecture is beautiful and the human presence makes it very alive. Great sharpness and colors, just some lens vignetting at the top. Thanks and wish you a very happy 2013!

Hi dear Gosia!
Seeming like an oil painting place in the musieum.
Very impresive image, the best suitable shot to present the ending of this year. Vertical format is best match with several vertical lines. Color touch is outstanding again! Thank you for your sincere support and kindness to me in 2012 and have a greatest new year for you!

jjcordier (75174) 2012-12-30 22:30
Un excellent cadrage vertical et un bon posttraitement sur les couleurs donnant ces tons un peu "vieillis" qui conviennent parfaitement à la belle architecture de cette splendide ville.
Meilleurs vœux pour 2013!

DINOZOR (16232) 2012-12-31 8:36
Bravo pour cette image très réussie présentée dans un format hyper vertical qui souligne bien les particularités graphiques de l'architecture.
C'est en plus une belle image d'ambiance de cette ville avec cette cycliste en premier plan.
happy new year!

A highly attractive architectural scene with a strong traveling romantic appeal. An excellent composition, well-chosen moment of capturing, good quality, which allows viewing many architectural details pretty clearly. Good presentation of this historic city!
mjw364 (7276) 2013-01-05 10:19
Happy New Year!
Nice shot - I like ther sense of scale and height created by the cyclist relative to the tall buildings. Great lines into the shot and nice texture from the roadway. Reminds me of a Macjake type shot for some reason!
Nice moment captured.
amaryllis (34208) 2013-01-05 23:57
j'aime beaucoup le cadrage et le rendu de ta photo, on a l'impression avec cette route pavée, cette cycliste d'être retournée quelques années en arrière; du moins les couleurs de pierre de l'église et de la maison en briques donnent un effet rétro
tres belle réalmisation
Gigidusud (14705) 2013-01-06 13:50
Nice your new username!
Beautiful postcard from Bruges.Excellent POV on this street and beautiful architecture.I like it!
Happy new year 2013!
ourania (29417) 2013-01-08 11:47
I like very much the way you've adjusted your point of view, composition and framing to the impressive tall buildings and the perspectives. The architectural interest and the fascination of the atmosphere on a moody day are indisputable and you have captured both in an excellent way. I also like the movement, scale and vividness offered by the people in this superb scenery. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
maria-v1981 (10814) 2013-01-11 11:46
I love your pretty shot with this wonderful facades and the beautiful colours. The atmosphere is so calm an atractive.
Have a nice weekend,
macjake (54934) 2013-01-13 15:46
it really has an ol' time feel to it.
reminds me SO much of the streets in Gdansk.
great atmosphere and architecture combo.
enjoy your day
ebingul (1898) 2013-01-25 4:17
I was in this beautiful town 2 months ago and I loved it.It is so picturesque isn't it.Your photo is a good example of its architecture.Well done and best regards.
abmdsudi (41998) 2013-01-26 18:14
I think the title is apt, an interesting quick shot focuses your attention on the main interest, almost the best composition and lighting you could hope for in this situation with mix of slight warm light in muddy colors give it real atmosphere. Good dynamism and sense of movement as the biker is vital enhances the picture. This indeed looks moody scene. Congrats
claudeD (31765) 2013-01-27 8:25
Wonderful picture from amazing town of Bruges. I like the typical atmosphere very much.You did an excellent contribution to TE here.Very well done.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
sevy (15359) 2013-02-02 5:59
Very nice shot. For sure for showing the specific architectur of Bruges, but also and for a big part for the bicycle in the start of the frame and giving dynamism to the view, naturally pushing the look to go deeper to read the shot.
Kamilutka (8095) 2013-02-21 9:01
moje gratulacje! Nie wiem jak mi umknelo to zdjecie wczesniej. Swietny pionowy kadr i bardzo atrakcyjne kolory. Kompozycja bardzo dobrze wywazona jesli chodzi o proporcje i perspektywe. Podoba mi sie ten efekt winietowania w rogach - cale zdjecie nabiera charakteru "sprzed lat".
InasiaJones (31448) 2013-02-23 13:34
I don't know if it is possible for anyone to confuse this city with another one, but as soon as I lay my eyes on the vignette, I knew where you were.
I don't know if it is the colours, the light, the darkish sky or the post-processing, but there is something nostalgic and timeless about your photo.
Excellent angle to create a nice perspective and to get a splendid view of these convergent streets and the buildings of different characters. Good timing to introduce the cyclist in the frame, leading our eyes in the composition. Vertical format suits the scene perfectly.
Dragut (14) 2013-03-05 7:49
Nice, well done, contrasted, and typical of this city.
LAPIAZ (3136) 2013-03-13 12:12
A typical scenery and architecture of this beautiful town. I love the atmosphere of your photo, great capture !
kato (11630) 2013-10-22 2:41
You're capturing well this cityscape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see tasteful buildings and stone pavement in city cirner. It remains deeply the atmospherein medieval times. And, it's the combination of subdued colors.
