A view of Prague old town seen from the Astronomical Clock Tower in the Old Town Square, just to the top left of the shot is the Powder Tower, this was the entrance for the rich in historical times & if you were poor & entered through this gate you could get your head chopped off!

Had a lovely meal of Beef Goulash in the square below. A wonderful city and a great pov although it's a shame it isn't bathed in sunlight.

A very nice shot. Shots of towns from a very high point in general look great. Especially when the roofs are made of tile.
And certainly when the town is old and beautiful!

It's a nice idea.

une photo qui nous donne l'impression d'être un oiseau et de survoler ce paysage en plein virage.
L'originalité de ce panorama.

very interesting and a little funny view of Prague old town :o) Very nice light. I like the red roofs.

This is a bizarre but oddly inviting POV, and I can't work out why it pleases me when it is so obviously jarring. Nice shot.

Great work here. The bit of lens distortion helps make for an interesting perspective!

The pov really works here.
A great combination of highlights and shadows
adds a lot to your good composition.

Thanks for sharing

A very nice and original point of view. Although the bottom of the picture is in the shades, I really like the lighted roofs with their very step angle. The tilt was a very good idea.
All the best,

Interesting point of view: you have managed to make us feel dizzy :)) As you cut off most of the sky and square floor, you put more accent to those charming houses. It is very nice to see their red roofs fully lit.

Nice picture :) The framing is unusual and works well for this kind of view.
Best regards, Laurent.

Very clever POW that demostrates that not an inch of real estate is wasted in this ancient capital city. I love how the orange roofs are so uniform and the little bit of blue sky really works well on this beauty.

Hey Wilson, what a great shot. I really like how it's composed! The colours are nice and the sun shining on the rooftops is perfect.

You've chosen a most ingenious pov for making this impressive shot! Lighting adds a lot to the vividness of the capture. Just perfect!

Hi Wilson. Jazzy but very effective POV from the tower. Excellent clarity and colours. Good story to read in your notes. Good contribution. Murray.

Very good use of the wide-angle lens to compose this image. The POV and the perspective complement each other very well. Great job!

I really like this, the way you used an unusual perspective. Makes you want to go there!

Hi Wilson, very nice view from the old Clock Tower over the Prague roofs. The tilted way of the view makes the picture even more appealing. Thanks for sharing. Cheers, Michael
