Buildings along the river in Karlovy Vary (I crop the river, because you wouldn't like to see the river in it bed of concrete)
The city is well known thanks to the mineral water, it is the oldest Bohemian spa town, and probably the second most popular tourist destination in the Czech Republic. You can only go by and enjoy sulfit bath or gas inhalation therapy and to try the healing waters. There are 12 hot springs which are contained 40 chemical elements and be used for diseases of the digestive and metabolic diseases. If you suffer from diarrhea or constipation, you should visit this resort.
In addition to the health spa, the city has a most valuable architecture. The spa buildings, colonnades and pavilions were constructed in the mood of a sober Empirical and, later, Art Nouveau styles.

A splendid nicely lit composition of this magnificent set of elegant façades with their different colours. Very pleasing pastel tones under an attractive pale blue sky. Superb sharpness throughout. I would be inclined also to clone out the crane on the right hand edge.

Wow, what a long row of beautiful facades, all in nice pastel colours.
The green on top in the middle and on the foreground brings a nice variety on the picture.
The square looks very lively with all those people.
Best regards, Paul

Hallo Achim. Es ist schön, wieder einmal ein Photo von Karlsbad zu sehen. Zuletzt war ich ca. 1968 in dieser berühmten Stadt. Damals gab es gerade große Konflikte unter den Staaten des Warschauer Pakts, - und die Flagge der DDR war als einzige nicht gehißt. aber das ist lange her.Ich hoffe, Du hast neben der dem Photographieren auch etwas gekurt. Du hast das Typische dieser Stadt gekonnt mit Deiner Kamera eingefangen. Gruß, wolfgang.

I had heard a lot about Karlovy Vary but never seen it and now thanks to your fantastic shot i can see the beautiful architecture and the lovely color of this place. Thanks for sharing.
iainsp (2866) 2010-10-22 5:01
A lovely point of view - capturing the beauty of the terrace of colourful building in a lovely light. I would be tempted to crop this shot just to the left of the crane - this is a distracting element and it would also take out some of the buildings in the shade.
regards and thanks, Iain

The colorful promenade along the small river that crosses town, a fabulous way to walk, and you show this in a most vivid texture.
