I'm not sure why, but there are very few photos posted on TE from Brno Czech Republic.
Ironically when i looked at my own gallery i have posted only 6 myself - so lets change that a little bit.
Brno is far more deserving of only 6 posts in my gallery. I could easily post 10 or 20 more.
Brno was a very charming city, lots of shopping and lots of restaurants, mixed with modern and historical architecture. So there's a bit of everything.
As I was waiting for our food to arrive at the restaurant in the bottom left of this photo, I decided to pass the time by stepping out and capturing a blue hour scene.
You can see the ghost on the right
He wasn't as scary as i thought ghosts would be :)
Thanks for looking

Blue hour at its best!
Beautiful and still blue sky and artificial lighting of the city-what more could we want?
You´ve found here interesting corner to present us variety of Brno´s architecture(the first building on the left contrasts well with other,more historic buildings)
Haha did you feel here like one of the Ghostbusters?:)

Une belle image nocturne avec un lumière bien maitrisée. Je suis d'autant plus admirative que je me débrouille très mal dans ce genre de photo.
Amitiés et bonne journée.

bellissima notturna, eccellente esposizione, il cielo è magnifico e le luci accendono la piazza perfettamente.
Bel contrasto tra l'architettura moderna e le altre e molto bello l'effetto di questa piazza vuota con i pochi passanti isolati.

Hee, hee, no this ghost isn't scary at all!
A beautiful street scene, well composed and exposed too - considering that you took this on an empty stomach. Your "blue hour" timing was perfect and that sky makes a wonderful contrast with the warm glow from the artificial lights of the street and the green lights seen in the windows on the left.
A very attractive photograph with lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

Meni je Brno poznat po dobrom lovackom oruzju.
Dobar tekst o gradu sa opisom, lep pogled u noci ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, ostrina, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazan deo grada u noci, lepe boje.
Dobar rad i kompozicija, lepo uhvacen trenutak, lepa arhitektura.
Menu Brno is famous for good hunting weapon.
A good article on the town with a description, a nice view of the night ...
Good time recording, sharpness, contrast and perspective, nice part of the city shown at night, beautiful colors.
Good work and composition, well captured moment, beautiful architecture.
All the best.

A well taken blue hour composition. I like the expansive view enhanced by the use of the panoramic frame. Pleasing warm and cool tonal contrasts. Perhaps the ghost was in search of something to eat and couldn't be bothered to get into scary mode:-)

this city does look like an eclectic architectural mix, but it seems to all come together so elegantly. A superb POV and wonderful management of the blue hour light makes this both compelling and beautiful. Like it!
Enjoy a good week - B.

J'aime beaucoup le titre car il convient à merveille à cette photo de nuit très bien exécutée.On dirait vraiment voir un fantôme. La gestion des couleurs est parfaite.

una foto piane di mistero e con colori quasi surreali nella facciata del palazo sulla sinistra.
Un'ora blu molto particolare che anzichè monumenti riprende un tipico e normale paesggio urbano con tutte le sue particolari caratteristiuche.
Eccellente come al solito la tua tecnica.
Ciao e buona giornata

Hi Craig, Bonjour,
Joli panorama de ce bel endroit de la République Tchèque,
Magnifique architecture et perpective..
belle composition nocturne , lumière et netteté.

Very good colours here, with the bright green lights along the Omega building (hotel?), the warm lamp light over the empty market and the very blue sky above. It looks very peaceful and quiet here, an interesting street scene.
holmertz (52722) 2014-04-07 8:53
The green light from the Omega building is more scary than the ghost :-). It is probably not one of the nicest buildings in the city, otherwise I trust you about the charm of Brno. There are lots of beautiful cities in the former "Eastern block" that remain in the shadows of the capitals. Good light and good colors (except the green Omega).

very good timing chosen for this scene. The light has been managed just perfectly to show all these lovely colors of the sky and of the town. Nice angle to present the architecture and the single silhouette of the pedestrian adds very much to the scene.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your evening

I don't know, he looks quite creepy to me. He has the gait of a zombie but the appearance of a ghost. I certainly wouldn't want to trifle with a zombie ghost!
Lovely capture of this city about which I must admit I know nothing. in particular the green building on the left grabs my attention, its design and the color against the blue sky are superb.
The tram tracks are composed excellent too.
Thanks for sharing a lesser known place!
All the best

hi craig, more ghostly than the ghost on the right side looks this green house on the left. excellent compositiion. warm regards from georgia malgo
rogerl (1616) 2014-04-07 16:10
Craig, blue hour indeed, along with the green fluorescents of the building on the left. What strikes me most about this shot are the iridescent colors everywhere. Nicely done.
jcpix (13930) 2014-04-07 16:37
You know, I think the only pictures from Brno that I can recall seeing here since I joined are yours. As far as I'm concerned, you've cornered the market...congrats! :)
Ahaha, such a photog...who else thinks of taking pictures while waiting for their meal? And not just looking around the restaurant for potential, but actually stepping outside for a chance at something. I love it!
It certainly paid off, not just for the image itself, but the fact you now have proof of life after death. :) This is without doubt the best, clearest and strongest piece of visual evidence. It's true, they're out there walking amongst the living!
There is kind of an eery feeling here though, ghost or not, the empty streets leave a lot to the imagination. Super colors in this one, the cloudy blue hour sky and patterned green from the building on the left is pure delight...and the other warm tones from the artificial lights bring it all together quite nicely.
Hope you didn't notice another opportunity after finishing your meal and did an accidental "dine and dash." haha Enjoy the rest of the evening. Take it easy.
Cheers from cactus country,
I raise a glass of Cherry Coke to your Cherry 7-Up, cheers to health (ironic, huh?) and tasty carbonation!

Une heure bleue de Brno parfaitement réussie, la façade moderne apportant une intéressante touche de couleur. Du beau travail!

You have turned this night street shot warmer just looking at it with or without ghost, clarity, colours and view point are just right. A really pleasant image with the glowing green breaks grabbing the eye, Well done, Congrats
Graal (102884) 2014-04-09 7:54
view is very nice. Good shot during the blue hour. Fine panoramic format. Attractive theme well done.
Have a nice evening.
danos (97815) 2014-04-10 8:52
the empty and panoramic view road of the town of Brno,enhance even more the night lights as the well lighted buildings.I like the created perspective as the architectural style of them. Excellent the light and the colour management of the scene.Well done.
Silvio1953 (143146) 2014-04-13 4:08
Ciao Graig, fascinating blue hour, superb sky, great exposure, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

We do not see much about Brno, and yet over a blue-hour there.
During WW1, my late father lived there for sometime as a kid, and in his memories he described the old charming town in the eyes of a child - much had changed since, I believe, and see: modern town with charming diff. colors of lights and fine architecture's.

very nice blue hour shot, i like sharpness, colors and exposure,
