Colmar old town architecture:
18 Rue-des-Boulangers, meaning "Bakers street", 48.0781, 7.3549 on the map. Typical wooden-beams houses created a charming environment, felt so well while walking through the beautiful streets.

Fine capture of these lovely half-timbered buildings, which never lose their appeal for me. I like the angled point of view and the excellent detail.

Like me, you are late posting, today.
This is a lovely corner of the town and your close-up details display the ancient characters of these half-timbered buildings. I love it!
Your chosen viewpoint has created a right angled corner which gives a great thirds composition to the shot.
Have a great w/e,

A well chosen segment of half-timbered buildings. Together they show a fine pattern and harmonic colours.
ourania (22900) 2013-12-06 9:04
a very attractive tight composition that combines perspectives and patterns effectively. The sign is a little disturbing but couldn't be avoided. On the other hand, I like very much the touches of personal taste evident on the windows. The limited palette of colours exalts the graphical aspect of this very characteristic architecture. Sharpness is great and there's a fine sense of depth too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Ah les belles façades de l'Alsace, j'aime le cadrage serré et pris seulement le haut des bâtiments, beaucoup de détails a voir, il semble avoir un magasin de chaussures de marque (Geox) :-))
nikkitta (11230) 2013-12-06 11:26
Another great capture of Alsace and the so, so original houses with wooden in their fronts as well as a place for flowers
Good angle with the Geox advertisement as a protagoniste
Great sharpnees obtained in what seems a cloudy day

The tight frame is putting in evidence the facade of the buildings. The point of view is showing the architecture of the facade of the buildings. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
carlo62 (23866) 2013-12-06 15:53
le belle facciate di Colmar sono state ben fotografate in un'immagine originale e di grande effetto.
C'è anche un richiamo al mio paese e questo può farmi solo piacere.
ChrisJ (93442) 2013-12-06 17:17
Nice repetition of the graphic geometric patterns and designs in the facades of the tightly packed buildings, with the effect accentuated by the effective tight framing. Good sharpness and minimalist colour. Have a great weekend!

Superb close up photo of typical Alsace houses. I love this type of architecture. You have posted an excellent photo with outstanding details. The view up and slightly diagonal arrangement is perfect. Nice inclusion of three hanging boards. Well done.
Wish you a very nice weekend.
kato (11148) 2013-12-06 21:45
You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see old wooden architecture. It's also impressive in window frame. So, it looks like the architecture's ruin of good times in France.
danos (80977) 2013-12-06 23:41
Good morming Ike,

Hello Ike, very good photograph of this beautiful and interesting composition with the typical architecture of Colmar, very good framing and interesting capture with good sharpness, light and color. Excellent and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and good Sunday.
Best wishes from southern Spain.

These tight framed, close-up shots always offer up some great detail...and when you have architecture like this to display, it's and added bonus! It almost looks a bit chaotic at first glance with the many different designs of the wooden beams, but it's a wonderful way to showcase the intricate beauty of these homes. I've always enjoyed the flower boxes that adorn windows, a bit of additional charm to the entire scenery. Well framed and presented. Hope you're having a nice weekend.
mcmtanyel (8327) 2013-12-08 16:48
I love these colors and patterns recorded in this photo. Once could pass this off as a historic document if it were not for the GEOX sign.
rasterman (197) 2013-12-09 14:30
I love Colmar,
It's truly a must see in the world!!
This picture covers very well the fantasy spirit of this medieval town with the timbered houses very well frame.
Nice work and thanks for sharing..
delpeoples (50721) 2013-12-10 0:10
Hi dear Ike
I like the tight framing here that accentuates the graphism of the architectural design. The browns and blacks go well together. There is a little bit of over exposure on the white part at the top, which could easily be rectified in Photoshop with a selective layer or Burning. But this is a small matter.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day
fotka (2931) 2013-12-10 5:44
Lovely backstreet of German style architecture. I was very surprise to see this kind of buildings in France.
Very good photo showing many details of these interesting structure. Colors, light, sharpness also very well done.
adramad (33662) 2013-12-10 8:01
Wonderful POV, this closed flat on the front and the corner of the house opposite, the drawings of the timber-framed therein, gives a nice graphic to the image. Certainly this city is a delight for the photographer.
A beautiful day with the sky so blue, which gives a lovely color.
Good also both luminosity and clarity.
Have a good afternoon.
UlfE (14603) 2013-12-10 11:02
A very nice architectural shot. The Geox sign is very well positioned and you have chosen a good perspective. It is quite obvious that this is a corner of the old town. It is not unlikely that the weather was an advantage here. In the absence of shaded area you could see every detail of the architecture. TFS and have a nice evening!
mkamionka (28456) 2013-12-11 6:52
I had a pleasure to visit Alsace (Strasbourg not Colmar) but have no evidence for it on TE :(
That is exactly as I remember it: the typical architecture of this region. It seems the sky was quite white so you did a great job selecting a close-up of the architecture. It feels very busy packed with interesting details, exactly as I like it.
josepmarin (57281) 2013-12-11 12:00
a superb composition, created under a good framing and a closed visual angle, where the wonderful architecture of the wooden beams houses, so typical at this region, offers us all its great graphical wealth, in a high quality composition.
Only the modern advertisement sign break the medieval atmosphere of this place.
A beautiful shot.
PaulVDV (19399) 2013-12-15 15:11
A pleasant view upwards let us discover that wonderful traditional architecture.
Excellent tight framing, composition, clarity and sharpness.
Best regards, Paul

Bonjour, cher ami Ike,
Bravo pour ce cadrage serré mettant en valeur l'architecture si particulière de l'Alsace.
Ces pans de bois constituant les façades sont d'une beauté exceptionnelle.
jmdias (50405) 2013-12-28 0:33
a marvelous sample of architecture. I liked this mix of lines and windows. very nice angle and framing. TFS.
