Many cities are called 'Venice of' this or that. And sometimes just a couple of canals are enough to earn that nickname, especially if place is touristy. Regardless of whether 'la Petite Venice' is a well earned nickname or not, the area of Colmar old town around the river Lauch is undeniably beautiful.

really a picture quite representative of what Alsace looks like
I live not very far but it's the foreigners who show us best the beauty of places that we see so often without taking time to appreciate them any longer
A nice and good one

Hello Kari ,
I agree with your note concerning the "Venice of..." . But Even Colmar is not a "little Venice" , your picture shows us that this city really worst the visit . I have to discover Alsace one day , a frean ch region that I don't know at all .

This is the second photograph that I have critiqued from Colmar, on adjacent days. Angel Cornejo (cornejo) has been posting shots from the region.
I like how you have included the colourful flowers in the f/g, setting the scene and creating a sense of depth. The half-timbered buildings are a joy to see, with their differing colours and individual patterns.
You have captured the scene with a good dof, keeping details sharp.
My warm regards,

You picture is refreshing and bring us back to the summer for a short moment.
I like the bright colors, light and the alignment of houses.
I'm not convinced of the interest of the flowers in foreground except as a facade for concrete in second level.

I don´t know if the comparison to Venice is right or not,one thing is sure-the architecture is really lovely.
Second thing is the way you framed the scene(I mean here the flowers in the FG and how they make so nice "opening" to the right scene).

Excellent photo from Colmar. I like this place very much. The overall composition with the flower in front and the nice typical Colmar houses in background is excellent. You got it in superb light. Nice to see the group of people there, they are adding nice life to the scene.

Personally, if my town were dubbed as anything relating to Venice I'd be honored! I've yet to make it to Colmar, but it's been on my wish list for quite some time...and images like this only drive that desire. No matter how many I've seen, each one is just as attractive, picturesque and charming. I really like how you utilized the foreground flowers for added color and to act as "anchors" for both sides of the frame. Looks to be a very conscious composition, executed with clarity and sharp focus. In a cliche word, beautiful! :) Have a great day ahead.

nice color rendering of the typical Alsatian façades. The foreground flowers up adding depth to the image.

non somiglia molto a Venezia, ma c'è tutto lo splendore dell'Alsazia.
Le tipiche facciate molto colorate sono bellissime e contornate di bei fiori.
Bello scatto, ho avuto il piacere di andare in questo luogo e mi è piaciuto molto.
