The cloudy white sky has given a nice high key toned backdrop and heightened the graphism as well as providing a wonderful diffused light. Good sharpness and the people animate the scene as well as indicating scale. Good linear perspective with most line converging towards the bg tower over the vanishing point. Tfs and have a great weekend!

ricordo molto bene questa città, splendida con le sue tipiche case alsaziane.
Bellissimo questo scorcio colorato, ben composto e presentato.

The presence of the people is adding life to the scene. The length of the street is giving depth to the composition. The details of the tower and of the buildings are very sharp. Have a nice day.

Good way to take the capture, some people to add life and a curve for perspective
Well done, enjoy watching

You're capturing well this street by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the winding stone pavement which there are a row of old buildings in medieval times at both sides and tall clock tower at the front. This looks like one of the typical european spectacle in good times.

Your POV is great, with the street leading the eye to the tower. The buildings along the street are quaint and colorful. This is altogether a very pleasant photo.

very nice presentation from Ribeauville. The curve of the car-free street, some pedestrians in sight, beautiful old tower, nice colours. well done1

A superb street scene. I particular I like your choice of a vertical format that allows the inclusion of the clock tower in its entirety. The coulple with the pushchair is perfectly positioned just where the street is bending. They also make the scene vivid. You also make use of the bending street in your composition. TFS and have a nice day!

a lovely and interesting picture that takes us through this charming alley and ends at the imposing tower, although the excellent depth you've achieved shows us the other side of the gate too. There's an interesting range of architectural details to observe and the human presence is welcome. Textures and colours are absolutely natural, harmonious and appealing. You brought out the character and atmosphere of this place very effectively, despite the weak lighting. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

The old clock tower makes and excellent focal point and is nicely framed by some very attractive architecture. The people bring the scene to life. The image is evenly lit and has pleasant pastel tones. Very good sharpness throughout.

Hi Ike !!
i know that the tower is the focal point..... but everything else is attractive and appealing to the eye.
window shutters and a curvy street also add interest.
Soft colours and sharp details.
Happy 2014 with many more nice photos from you.
Miguel82 (16568) 2013-12-27 18:22

Is this your 999th photo or your 1000th? In any event yee ha, congratulations! A beautiful shot of this characteristic street. I like the inclusion of the people who add dynamism and another interesting element. The clock tower is very pretty and very typical of the Alsace region. Good vertical frame and excellent management of the overcast light.
jemaflor (76624) 2013-12-28 1:56
A photo well taken, with the view of the street and the tower well situated between these façades, good light.

Sensational this vertical composition, allowing us to see the charm of this beautiful street, with its beautiful facades and as background on the street, the beautiful tower is a magnificent POV, which shows very well the charm of this place.
Very good sharpness and brightness.
Well done. I love it.
Enjoy the weekend.

La Alsazia e le sue architetture ..... dal francese al tedesco e viceversa. Bellezza dei luoghi e volumi (la torre campanaria) e la presenza di "momenti di vita".
